Today we will be venturing into the details of a product by Goli Nutrition, Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies! With many acclaimed health benefits, the popularity of apple cider vinegar is on the rise and is more approachable than ever in a familiar form that will appeal to kids and adults. Instead of drinking a shot of apple cider vinegar, you can achieve the same result by consuming two gummies. “Taste the apple. Not the vinegar.”
Why should I try apple cider vinegar gummies?
To date, the most well-known benefits are:
- Better digestion
- Glucose control
- Energy boost
- Increases fat loss
- Improves heart health
- Strengthens immune system
How does it taste?
The most common knock on apple cider vinegar has always been the taste. Generally, vinegar is tough to swallow daily and will deter even the most stalwart health enthusiasts. This is where the flavor really shines. The apple profile has been carefully produced by combining organic apple, organic pomegranate, organic beetroot, organic carrot, and organic blackcurrant. This combo will make you forget all about the harsh teaspoons of apple cider vinegar past.
What is Apple Cider Vinegar and how is it made?
Simply put, apple cider vinegar is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice. Producing apple cider vinegar is a tried and true practice that is commonly seen in grapes. The process first involves crushing apples in order to extract the liquid, followed by the addition of yeast to help ferment the sugars to alcohol. Once bacteria are added to the mix, it converts alcohol to acetic acid. This acetic acid is the main compound found in the apple cider vinegar that you will see in your local grocery store.
What is the Mother?
When examining the product, you may notice the tagline of these gummies, “With the mother”. The mother is found in apple cider vinegar and consists of enzymes, proteins, and good bacteria. The enzymes found in the mother is believed to be what is responsible for many of the health benefits listed above.
In a 2009 study, the use of apple cider vinegar appears to have a worthwhile effect when it comes to weight loss and fat loss. Other studies show reports of reduced appetite and increased satiety. This is a boon to those struggling with portion control and is helpful for maintaining a well-balanced diet. Further details can be found at PubMed here.
Further research on apple cider vinegar points towards a positive effect on glucose and insulin response. The anti glycemic effects of apple cider vinegar have been shown to lower blood sugar and benefit those with diabetes and insulin resistance. This along with improved digestion are the main highlights of apple cider vinegar for practical use.
Digestion and Fiber
You may have seen probiotics marketed in kombucha and yogurt to improve gut health with good bacteria. Apple cider vinegar is prebiotic, which promotes the growth of previously mentioned good bacteria in the gut. Apple cider vinegar gummies also contain pectin, which accounts for 50% of an apple’s fiber content. Pectin has similar prebiotic benefits such as increasing good bacteria and reducing bad bacteria, which makes it especially helpful for those battling indigestion or acid reflux.
The ingredients found in apple cider vinegar gummies are sourced in the United States at an allergen-free facility and are non-GMO. They also have no chemicals and are kosher. In addition to the organic ingredients found in apple cider vinegar gummies, you will find Vitamin B12. This expedites the digestion of food, and in turn, produces more energy. Another vitamin found in these gummies is Vitamin B9 which has shown positive results for overall health.
When deliberating over what to add to your supplement stack, apple cider vinegar gummies have many positives that are hard to ignore. I previously mentioned increased energy and improved health, but I personally feel that apple cider vinegar gummy's main strengths are preventing and reducing gut inflammation. With a delicious taste to top off the list, it is an easy recommendation.
