Apple cider vinegar’s weight loss benefits come in the form of improving metabolism, reducing fat storage, burning fat and suppressing appetite.
The most popular way to add it into your diet is to mix it in with a glass of water and drink it.
But how much should you consume a day to begin to see results?
Health Line recommends one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day to get the full weight loss benefits.
It also suggests spreading it out into two to three doses throughout the day and drinking it before meals.
If you are new to taking apple cider vinegar it also recommends starting off with one teaspoon (5ml) to see how you tolerate it.
The site adds: “Do not take more than 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, because taking too much at one sitting may cause nausea.”
Both can be regarded as the same thing and have been proven to have a positive impact on a person’s health.
The difference between both products is what they are made from.
Cider vinegar is usually made from apple, whereas cider vinegar can also be made from other fruits, for example raspberries.
The process to make apple cider vinegar begins by fermenting apple juice (or another fruit juice) using a bacteria known as ‘Mother of Vinegar’ and yeast.
The bacteria and yeast break down the apple’s sugars to acetic acid and magic acid, which give the vinegar its sour taste.
Why does apple cider help with weight loss?
Studies have found that apple cider vinegar helps you to lose weight because of the acid in the liquid, known as acetic acid.
The acid increases an enzyme AMPK, which scientists claim increases fat burning and decreases fat and sugar production.
Another study has found that people who drank a tablespoon of cider vinegar in water had lower glucose levels.
