Apple Cider Vinegar And Weight Loss
Not too long ago, Apple Cider Vinegar has been connected with the issue of weight loss which has gathered a lot of public attention.
Arizona State University’s Carol S. Johnston Ph.D. and a team of scientists accidentally stumbled across effects of vinegar on weight loss while conducting a study to determine whether vinegar itself, would help lower cholesterol levels in his subjects. Apparently it did not, but they did discover that study participants lost on average half a pound a week, even without dieting. That was how it was found that Apple Cider Vinegar may actually be beneficial for those seeking to lose their weight!
When the body is at rest, our metabolism rate is maintained by growth hormones released by our pituitary gland. This hormone is made up of proteins, and recent studies have shown that the consumption of Apple Cider Vinegar helps with the digestion of protein. Therefore, a more efficient level of protein breakdown ensures that more of this growth hormone will be produced by the pituitary gland and consequently elevates resting metabolism. When resting metabolic rates are increased, individuals burn more calories when unengaged in physical activity, even during rest or sleep. All these show that how Apple Cider Vinegar could be utilized to enhance your weight loss progress!
Apple Cider Vinegar And Suppressing Appetite
Not only is Apple Cider Vinegar able to help with the different ailments listed above, it also works as an excellent form of Appetite Suppressant. Pectin, the water soluble fibre found in apples, absorbs water and fills the stomach before meals which helps to suppress the appetite and could potentially lead to effective weight loss. There is enough evidence showing that acetic acid in vinegar may reduce the activity of intestinal enzymes used for carbohydrate digestion, so fewer calories from the starches enter the system. It also helps to suppress the dreaded feeling of feeling hungry, which is one of the top problem people face with weight loss these days, the inability to control our appetites.
We all know how appetite is the number one factor in affecting our weight loss progress. The above clearly show how Apple Cider Vinegar could actually curb hunger which in turn. reduce our appetite. This will be a powerful tool to add to your diet regime.
Personal Experience With Apple Cider Vinegar
I have personally used Apple Cider Vinegar and found it to be relatively effective. However do NOT have the mindset that it is like a miracle drug which solves your problems immediately. It may take some time for the effects to kick in. I personally do feel that it has curbed my appetite quite a bit.
I suggest anyone who is interested to acquire Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. You may see their product store here. (http://www.bragg.com/products/acv.html)
There are multiple shops out there where you may purchase them. They are not pricey and are very affordable. You will need to take note that this product is acidic and will be required to be mixed with water to be consumed. I would suggest 3 tablespoons to go with at least 150ml – 200ml (5-7oz) of water initially. Once you have gotten used to the taste and acidity level, you may choose to modify the water level to suit your taste. It does not matter how much water you add, it will not affect the content, just the taste.
If you are unable to find the one I recommended near your area, it is ok. However take note what I would recommend getting is an Organic, Raw-Unfiltered and With the Mother Apple Cider Vinegar. There are actually a lot of online stores that ship internationally, and all of these products are relatively cheap which could lasts for months for a single individual. Do NOT think about scrimping and getting the slightly cheaper version which isn't Organic or are Filtered, these will NOT work as well as the one I have recommended.
If you are unable to consume this for stomach sensitivity issues, losing weight is not only about consuming Apple Cider Vinegar, learn more about it in my Report Here.
