Apple cider vinegar has been used for home remedy for years. In recent years it is being suggested by a large number of nutritionist and is popular in the health community. However there is no scientific evidence showing its benefits. Scientists are looking for evidence that can back these observed benefits. Let us see what are the benefits that are being observed after regular consumption of ACV.
What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
It mostly contains apple juice in which fruit sugar is turned into alcohol by adding yeast by a process known as fermentation. Bacteria turn the alcohol into acetic acid. That’s what gives vinegar its sour taste and strong smell. It’s filled with raw enzymes and beneficial bacteria from the fermentation process it goes through during its creation.
How it is used?
Vinegar’s used in cooking, baking, salad dressings, and as a preservative. There’s a lot of acid in it, so drinking vinegar straight isn’t recommended. And it can cause serious problems if you have a lot of it. If you’re looking to take some for health reasons, most people recommend adding one to two tablespoons to water or tea.
