Can Apple Cider Vinegar Help You Lose Weight?

September 23, 2019


Eric Bakker here, thanks for coming back on
the naturopath from the bottom of the world in New Zealand. Thanks for watching my channel. Apple cider vinegar, incredible stuff. It’s been around for centuries. In fact, I just looked at this interesting
report from the Harvard, I think Harvard Medical Center. There was a Dr. Shmerling, I think his name
is, and it looks like he’s an editor there for the Harvard, some part of Harvard, anyway,
and he says that he was surprised to see in 2017 the apple cider vinegar diet was one
of the hottest trends on Google. And then he was very surprised when he researched
to see that apple cider vinegar had been around for centuries and promoted all kinds of things. But yeah, he wasn’t very that pleased or that
keen on promoting apple cider vinegar and no medical doctor usually is, but he did quote
a 2009 study involving 175 obese people who lost between two to four pounds after drinking
one to two tablespoons of vinegar per day for about 12 weeks, and it’s consistent. The triglycerides came down, the weight came
down, but what Shmerling wasn’t really looking at was really all of the health benefits of
cider vinegar, particularly apple cider vinegar, so we’re not talking the plain conventional
vinegars that you’ll find in the supermarket. We’re talking the naturally fermented side
of vinegar. Now, this has a very nice effect on the human
microbiome. Science will eventually, when they’re sick
of poisoning people with all this stuff down the track, they’ll start realizing that vinegar
is actually one of the best medicines that the human body can take in terms of its effect
on the upper GI, the middle GI, and the lower GI. I would put a good quality sign of vinegar
in the same department as yogurt, okay? It has not dissimilar benefits, but the interesting
thing with the acidic acid component, I’ve certainly seen it improve people’s upper GI
profoundly. For many people my age, like 60 plus, one
to two tablespoons a day can certainly help with heartburn and it can improve uptake and
the breakdown of different protein foods much more effectively in people. So it’s definitely a good medicine. It’s something that conventional evidence-based
medicine hasn’t clicked on to, because they’re too busy giving people all kinds of drugs
to suppress gut function. But this actually balances gut function. It also helps to inhibit bad bacteria. So remember, we’re not talking the white vinegar
that you buy in the supermarket, made in industrial process. That’s not what we’re talking about here. That might be good to clean your toilet bowl,
but not really good for drinking. So the apple cider vinegar is naturally fermented,
okay? It’s a different product. I’ve seen it certainly linked with weight
loss with people. I’ve seen it linked with improved microbiome,
reducing flatulence, reducing heartburn, improving skin, improving hair and nails. There’s a whole list of things. Is it a cure all? No, it’s not. But it certainly does improve people’s health,
and in time it will all come out. So if you have got weight and digestive issues,
try and take a tablespoon of cider vinegar per day before a meal and just see what happens,
and over time you may be able to step it up to one tablespoon twice per day. Because it really is remarkable stuff, apple
cider vinegar, and it’s not made by big pharmaceutical companies. That could be one of the reasons why it’s
not heavily promoted, because it’s cheap and it’s readily available, but don’t fall for
it. Give it a try yourself. You be the judge, all right? Not some big, you know, science-based sort
of university study. It’s all about you. It’s not what the studies say. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link below if
