The Real Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Is apple cider vinegar really all that it’s hyped up to be?

Recently, my sister was experiencing unexplained pain in her back and made a trip to the doctor. Long story short, he recommended her gall bladder be removed and handed her a fistful of pills. She politely declined, said “thanks, but I think I’ll keep my gall bladder” and went on her merry way. Ok, not so merry and still in pain, she decided to try to ease her discomfort by seeking out holistic resolution. For weeks she kept coming across the same thing: apple cider vinegar and its many beneficial claims. She gave it a go, drinking 2 tablespoons diluted in water every morning. Now, four months later and without any exaggeration, my sister is pain-free.

I keep hearing these first-hand miracle stories about apple cider vinegar and it’s making me curious. If apple cider vinegar is helping so many people, but there are no medical claims to back it up, is it really everything it’s cracked up to be? We looked into it and found five “backed up” benefits of apple cider vinegar. But before we jump in, let’s get a few things straight. ACV is made by fermenting the sugars from apples and adding bacteria to the solution, therefore turning it in to acetic acid. (Acetic acid is the active ingredient in vinegar.) The bacteria in organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains “mother”, made up of healthy bacteria, proteins and enzymes. It does not contain many nutrients or vitamins and is not a solution for detoxification.

And now for the good stuff…


Apple cider vinegar has not only shown to increase immunity, but also lower cholesterol which decreases the risk of heart disease. It successfully improves insulin function and keeps blood sugar levels low. Because ACV combats gastrointestinal issues, it promotes overall healthy digestion. If you are interested in more of the pros and cons of apple cider vinegar, reach out to your doctor.
