Apple cider vinegar has been revolutionary for many people in providing benefits and relief from some of the challenges that life throws at us.
Your body is your machine. One way apple cider vinegar promotes a healthy and better-functioning machine is through its high B9 and B12 vitamin levels. These are nutrients which cannot be produced inside the body and must be obtained through your diet.
B12 and B9 (otherwise known as folate or folic acid) as a pair help with red blood cell formation and anemia prevention, promotes good bone health, may improve mood, and may prevent birth defects if taken during pregnancy, as good B12 levels are vital when you’re expecting. These are just a handful of the benefits B9 and B12 vitamins provide.
Apple cider vinegar promotes healthy bacteria in the stomach. It provides relief from gas and bloating, and can help with digestion. Acidity helps your body create more pepsin, which is the enzyme that helps your digestive system break down protein.
There is also some evidence to suggest that apple cider vinegar can prevent and treat Candida issues because of its anti-fungal properties. Candida is the most common cause of fungal infections in humans, but apple cider vinegar encourages the growth of healthy bacteria which minimizes the overgrowth of Candida.
If you have a hard time getting through your day, apple cider vinegar can enhance energy and give you the kick you need. Taken regularly, it can also boost your immune system and balance your pH levels. The energy kick can be partially attributed to the B9 and B12 vitamins that we talked about earlier.
Apple cider vinegar lowers glucose levels and may be helpful to diabetics. It can prevent spike in blood sugar by blocking starch absorption.
If you want to feel good while also looking the part, well, the high levels of acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar prevent fat deposits and improve metabolism. This can lead to weight loss. Also, apple cider vinegar helps restore the skin’s natural acidity, which in turn leads to healthier looking skin.
There are several ways to take apple cider vinegar, but there are really two major subcategories: liquid or gummies. If you go the liquid route, we have a couple of recommendations. One, use 1-2 tablespoons a day. Perhaps start with a dose closer to one tablespoon and see if you get your desired results. Second, unfiltered and organic is best, as it contains something known as “mother”, which is vital to many of the benefits we’ve mentioned.
Having said that, there are several drawbacks when it comes to using liquid apple cider vinegar. It is highly acidic, and can therefore damage tooth enamel, irritate your throat, and cause an upset stomach. For these reasons, we recommend gummies as a first choice. Goli’s apple cider vinegar gummies (available at both our physical and online store) are organic, vegan, gluten-free, and best of all, don’t come with any of the aforementioned risks.
