Extensive research has proved the promising potential of Apple Cider Vinegar, available in different edible forms, including pills. Regular consumption of these pills aid in various health benefits, including weight loss, easing symptoms of diabetes, lowering of blood pressure and prevention of cardiovascular disease to name just a few.
Most of these effects have been supported by irrefutable scientific data. Some of the important benefits are mentioned below.
- Lowering of blood sugar level and easing symptoms of diabetes
- Diabetes is chiefly associated with high blood sugar levels, which is directly dependent on the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas.
- Apple Cider Vinegar Pills regulate insulin production and hence help maintain optimum blood sugar levels and prevent diabetes. A study conducted by Dr. Johnston has shown Apple Cider Vinegar Pills slow the rate of increase in blood sugar level after meals.
Cider Vinegar Pills on blood sugar levels under different conditions are as follows:
- Lowering by up to 34% when consuming 50 grams of white bread.
- Lowering by up to 4% when taken before bedtime
- Significant lowering, in addition, to increase in insulin sensitivity by up to 34% in a high-carbohydrate meal.
These pills can be consumed regularly to keep blood sugar levels in check, and could prove very useful for people diagnosed with type II diabetes or pre-diabetic conditions.
Prevention of cardiovascular diseases and lowering of bad cholesterol
Cardiac ailments are chiefly associated with increased levels of low density cholesterol (LDL) and very low density cholesterol (VLDL), together referred to as “bad cholesterol”. High level of bad cholesterol in blood leads to their deposition on the walls of the arteries, causing a variety of heart problems, from simple chest pains to cardiac arrest if the arteries get clogged. The chlorogenic acids present in Apple Cider Vinegar Pills work by lowering the level of bad cholesterol, thereby preventing their deposition and crystallization in the blood stream. These effects have been successfully tested on rats, but clinical studies on humans are yet to be conducted.
Apple Cider Vinegar Pills has conventionally been used to prevent atherosclerosis by treating hyperlipidemia (high fat content in blood).
Fighting and reducing the risk of cancer
The acetic acid in Apple Cider Vinegar Pills has anti-tumor properties, which helps to destroy or shrink certain types of cancer cells. Since symptoms of cancer are generally not seen until very late, reducing the risk of cancer is the best bet. Research in China has shown that the risk of oesophageal cancer can be significantly reduced by the consumption of vegetable and vinegar.
Potent biological effects
Bacteria and other pathogens within the human body also result in many diseases and infections. Apple Cider Vinegar Pills work by rendering the environment unsuitable for pathogenic survival and growth. This effect has specifically been seen in kidneys, resulting in prevention of kidney-related disorders and urinary tract infections. The acetic acid in Apple Cider Vinegar Pills seeps into the cell membrane of the pathogenic micro-organism, thereby leading to their death. Research in Japan has shown Apple Cider Vinegar Pills play a significant role in modulating blood pressure and fat accumulation.
The appetite-suppressing aspect of acetic acid present in Apple Cider Vinegar Pills leads to reduced consumption of food, ultimately resulting in weight loss. Recent studies have shown that these pills decrease the amount of food consumed by increasing satiety and decreasing the glycemic effect of meals. In addition, the acetic acid also increases the efficiency of starch digestion in the body.
In addition to these effects, ongoing studies are unveiling more and more health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar Pills. Hence, regular consumption of these pills can help prevent a lot of disorders and keep problems in check. This is undoubtedly an excellent supplement, that can help maintain sound health.
