Apple cider vinegar recipes have been used for centuries to heal ailments of all kinds—from removing dandruff and alleviating toothaches to healing mushroom poisoning and getting clearer skin [1]! Recently, apple cider vinegar for health has become more and more popular among the natural health community to reduce body fat, decrease cholesterol levels, and fight off other lifestyle conditions we face today. Although there are many different ways to drink apple cider vinegar, I am going to share with you 5 of the best apple cider vinegar recipes to boost longevity, improve your health, and help you lose a few extra pounds!

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?


Apple cider vinegar is mainly made from apples, sugar, and yeast. In order for apple cider vinegar to contain all of its health benefits, it must go through a process called fermentation. The juice from the apples is mixed with sugar, yeast, and some “bad bacteria”—these are the bacteria that are great for your gut! Once the bacteria and yeast are added to the liquid the mixture begins to ferment and the sugars are turned into alcohol.

The fermented mixture then goes through a second fermentation process where the alcohol is turned into vinegar! Pretty cool, huh? The vinegar that is created is called acetic acid and is shown to fight off cravings, lower blood sugar, and insulin levels, and blast belly fat! Additionally, high doses of apple cider vinegar lower your levels of low-density lipoproteins or LDLs (the bad cholesterol in your blood) [2].

Because apple cider vinegar is so great for your health, we use it in our fat-burning appetite suppressant, SkinnyFit Snack Attack! To read more about how you can fight off cravings and accelerate your fat loss with the powerful ingredients in SkinnyFit Snack Attack, click here!

What Does Apple Cider Vinegar Do?


Apple cider vinegar is a wildly popular at-home remedy for a culmination of health and beauty conditions. It is by no means an end-all-be-all cure for everything, but science doesn’t lie when it comes to a few of the major health benefits!

Apple Cider Vinegar Health Benefits


These are the top 4 benefits of apple cider vinegar for health to boost longevity.

  • Lowers Cholesterol & Improves Heart Health
    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, killing nearly 650,000 people annually [3]. However, apple cider vinegar contains pectin, which is a type of soluble fiber that eliminates bad cholesterol. The bad cholesterols, such as low-density lipoproteins (LDLs), attach themselves to pectin and are then eliminated.
  • Increases Fat Loss
    Apple cider vinegar for weight loss is extremely common and is probably one of the most studied benefits of apple cider vinegar. Studies show that foods with high acetic acid protect against weight gain and increase the gene correlated to the storage of belly fat [4]. Additionally, ACV is an appetite suppressant and increases satiety so you can feel fuller for longer and prevents you from overeating.
  • Lowers Blood Sugar and Fights Against Diabetes
    In 2005, a study conducted at the Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry in Sweden showed that when participants consumed vinegar containing acetic acid when eating high-carb meals it significantly lowered their blood sugar and insulin levels afterward [5]. High blood sugar is a major concern, especially for those who already have pre-existing diabetic conditions, all of which can lead to, in serious cases, a diabetic coma. However, having high blood sugar and high insulin levels can lead to prediabetes.
  • Can Kill Harmful Bacteria
    Because it is loaded with a bunch of friendly bacteria and antibiotic properties, apple cider vinegar is great for your gut! The vinegar kills harmful bacteria that live in your stomach and restores a healthy balance of good bacteria to increase nutrient absorption!

Ways To Drink Apple Cider Vinegar


There are lots of ways to drink apple cider vinegar but there is one common denominator no matter how you drink it— dilute! Apple cider vinegar is acetic acid and can be very harsh on your oral health. Over time, the acids inside can burn the enamel from your teeth and drinking too much of it can become potentially harmful to your health. It is recommended that you drink no more than 1-2 tablespoons in no more than 2-3 doses throughout the day. So no matter how you drink your apple cider vinegar, diluting it with water, or SkinnyFit Detox is ideal.
