What Apple Cider Vinegar Really Does To Your Body


Benji Jones: Wait, how zoomed-in are you? The internet is good for many things, but providing trusted
advice on natural remedies is definitely not one of them, especially when it comes
to apple cider vinegar. A quick Google search will show you that people use it for everything
from cleaning their teeth to curing yeast infections. So if people on the internet are doing it, it’s worth trying, right? Definitely wrong. Because not only is there little evidence to support most of the uses
for apple cider vinegar, but some of them are
straight-up bad for you. Apple cider vinegar is
basically just fermented juice. Yeast turns the sugars in
apple juice into alcohol, and bacteria then turns that alcohol into acetic acid, the chemical linked to most of cider vinegar’s alleged benefits. But here’s the thing: This process isn’t unique
to apple cider vinegar. In fact, acetic acid is
in all types of vinegar, from white wine to balsamic. The main thing that makes
cider vinegar different is that it might be easier to swallow than a straight-up swig of balsamic. And if you are so
inclined to gulp it down, there’s at least one benefit
you can look forward to. Research shows that drinking
cider vinegar after a meal may help lower your blood-sugar levels. Edwin McDonald: So studies
have demonstrated that when people eat a high-starch
meal and follow it with a little bit of apple cider vinegar, the blood sugars after eating those meals may not go up as much compared
to when you eat placebo. Jones: That’s doctor and
trained chef Edwin McDonald. He says that ingesting as little as 20 grams of apple cider vinegar has been shown to slow the release of food from your stomach into your intestines. That’s where your body breaks down starches like pasta into sugars, and as a result… McDonald: You’re not gonna
absorb those sugars as quickly. So when you don’t absorb
sugars as quickly, your insulin levels
really don’t rise as much, and your blood sugar doesn’t rise as much. Jones: And that’s great news for anyone who’s diabetic or pre-diabetic. Now, despite what you read online, it probably won’t help you lose weight. McDonald: I also run a
weight-management clinic, and this question comes up all the time. Jones: But lowering your blood
sugar after a meal is just about the only benefit of
drinking apple cider vinegar. Research does suggest that acetic acid can slow down the accumulation of body fat and prevent metabolic
disorders in mice and rats. But there’s little evidence that it has the same effect on humans. In one weight-loss
experiment, 30 volunteers drank two tablespoons of
either apple cider vinegar, malt vinegar, or a placebo drink, twice a day, for two months straight, and none of them lost weight. In an older study with a similar design, participants did lose weight, but only about a third
of a pound each week, which McDonald says isn’t much. But if not for weight loss, what about using cider
vinegar to whiten your teeth? McDonald: I caution people against that. Jones: That’s because
cider vinegar is an acid. In fact, most brands have a pH between 2 and 3, which is similar to stomach acid, so swishing it around in your mouth can over time wear down the
enamel around your teeth, leaving them feeling rough to the touch and more susceptible
to cavities and decay. Yikes. Then there are the people who use apple cider vinegar as
a shampoo replacement. And as it turns out, there’s actually a pretty good reason for that. Because cider vinegar is so
acidic, Dr. McDonald says it can kill some of the microbes
that make your hair stink, and it can also limit the population of a type of fungus that
can lead to dandruff. But there’s a flip side. Because cider vinegar is so acidic, it can also burn or irritate your scalp. So you should always dilute it with water. Oh, and despite what you read online, cider vinegar is not
effective against head lice. In fact, one study found
that among six home remedies that people use to eliminate lice, like olive oil and mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar is
the least effective. None of them worked though. The claims of what apple
cider vinegar can do don’t stop there. Just keep in mind that at
least for now, none of them is supported by a large
body of scientific research. Now, of course, we’re
not talking about taste. When it comes to cooking,
there’s no uncertainty: Apple cider vinegar is delicious. I use it all the time when making dressing, pickles, and sauces. Yes, I cook. I just don’t walk away from meals thinking I’ve just swallowed
some ultimate cure-all.

    Olive oil and mayonnaise doesn't work to literally suffocate lice from breathing and therefore dying? When applied nightly for the amount of days it would take a newly laid egg to hatch (6-9 days according to the CDC) and some days to suffocate newly born nymphs?

    Fyi, if you haven’t taken the time to test this for yourself, and observe the effects of acv, then you may want to do this.

    Acv does lower blood sugar, and how much acv you drink makes a difference as well.

    Liver/Natural Energy
    Acv cleans the liver and in turn allows the liver to clean the blood that much more effectively. Rest assured you will notice your energy levels go up quite a bit.

    Don’t drink acv straight out of the bottle, that’s just stupid. As soon as you did that, I could tell you had no actual idea what you were talking about. You want to keep your teeth? Mix it with water and drink it through a straw, then rinse your mouth with water afterwards.

    Acv is great for your health, and you are seriously missing out if you don’t make it a part of your diet.
