Viral health hack on apple cider vinegar, and verdict
« on: November 21, 2017, 04:55:39 PM »

I tried the viral health hack where you take a shot of apple cider vinegar every day — here's the verdict

Kristin Salaky, INSIDER

I thought this stuff would make me healthier, but it didn't seem to do much. (Kristin Salaky)

Apple cider vinegar is often touted as something that will make you healthier.

People claim it can suppress appetite, help with acid reflux, and help your digestion.
 
I took a shot of it every day for 10 days.

I didn't see much of a difference.

I unapologetically love vinegar. My father raised me to believe that french fries should be smothered in malt vinegar, not ketchup. My best friend and I once ate so many salt and vinegar potato chips that it literally burned an indent in her cheek. I have about four different types of vinegar in my cabinet at home. It's an obsession.

And, given the alleged benefits of apple cider vinegar, I thought it was an obsession that could make me healthier.

Although I primarily use it to make salad dressings and in my face masks, ingesting apple cider vinegar is supposed to help with suppressing appetite, improving digestion, and issues associated with acid reflux, the last of which I have.

This stuff is supposed to be magic. (Kristin Salaky)

So I decided to take a shot every day for breakfast for a week. I'd done this once or twice before, so I sort of knew what to expect. But ingesting it religiously, I had been assured, would altar my eating habits, clear my skin, make me invincible to bear attacks, and essentially change my life for the better.

On day one, I eagerly doled out my shot.

According to the internet, you are supposed to drink two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in the morning for maximum results. I, not thinking very clearly at 6 a.m., decided to take each spoonful individually rather than measure both into a shot glass.

This proved to be the wrong move, because I had to let the taste sit for a while before I could take the second spoonful and chase with a glass of cold water. This was absolutely the worst thing I could have done.

 If you've never tried it, apple cider vinegar has an interesting taste. Although I can eat pickles and drown salads in red wine vinegar, drinking it solo is a whole other story. It tastes like eating 5,000 savory Sweet Tarts at once, and the only way to get rid of the taste is to drown it out with something else.

After gagging a bit, I decided to dirty up a shot glass for the rest of the week for the sake of my taste buds. My boyfriend was pretty confused why my cat-themed shot glasses were piling up in the morning, but once he leaned in and smelled the vinegar on my breath, he got the picture.

In terms of how it made me feel, not a whole lot changed.

I expected this shot to make me feel gassy and awful because of my acid reflux — and it did, but only on the first day. Aside from that, it only made one major difference.

I was starving all of the time.

Now this isn't wholly unusual. I do Weight Watchers, so it's not like I regularly stuff myself. For some reason, however, I had horrible food cravings during this experiment. I wanted french fries, pita bread, and — for some weird reason — red wine and hot chocolate mixed together. I usually crave healthy foods, but for some reason I just felt the need to pig out.

I didn't end up eating these things (well, except for some sweet potato fries) but I did find myself reaching for snacks a little bit earlier in the day and more often. This is weird, because I had always heard that apple cider vinegar could be used to suppress your appetite.

It turns out, that is only true to an extent. Experts told CNN vinegar can make people nauseous and not want to eat very much. Looks like I love vinegar so much that it just made me want to eat more. Whoops!

It didn't end up really helping or hurting my acid reflux. Truth be told, I didn't really notice much of a difference at all when taking these shots, other than a sour taste in the back of my throat for a few hours in the morning.

This got me thinking about how we think about health.

Sure, apple cider vinegar has many uses, and there is some tentative proof that it can be healthy for you, but is it really worth taking a shot of it in the morning? For me, no. Unfortunately, it took me a few days after my experiment to come to that conclusion. In fact, I was only going to do this experiment for a week, but I ended up extending to 10 days just to see if maybe I was doing something wrong.

The thing is, it felt healthy. It felt like I was doing something slightly difficult that would ultimately make me really healthy in the long run. It seemed like a shortcut that should work.

If you're a person who's wanted to get fit or watch what you're eating, you'll know that people love to trick you with small things that will get you "healthy" with as little work as possible. They'll swear that if you just eat all the avocados you possibly can that you'll have glowing skin. Or that if you just invest in some ridiculous health product, you'll be as fit as a weight lifter.

If we're literally just all trying to make ourselves nauseous rather than eating in moderation and moving our bodies as often as we can, is that really health?

I am all for small steps that make people feel better, but this one seems like it's not for me. I will continue to love vinegar more than most human beings, but it will strictly be reserved for Italian subs and french fries.

10 Apple Cider Vinegar Myths You Should Stop Believing ASAP

Unfortunately, it's not the health cure-all you think it is.



By Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN
JUL 5, 2017

Apple cider vinegar has gotten some serious hype lately for its supposed health benefits — some claim it reverses everything from diabetes to weight gain. Sadly, it's not that simple. While the ingredient provides plenty of pros, we'll be honest: There's no need to swallow spoonfuls every morning.

These are the 10 apple cider vinegar health benefit rumors you can stop believing in once and for all:

1. It boosts your immune system.

Using apple cider vinegar regularly may improve your health overall, but it's not for the reason you think. Made by adding bacterial cultures and yeast to apple juice, the liquid is typically used as a dressing on vegetables. It's the antioxidant compounds in the produce that actually help reduce the risk of chronic disease, including cardiovascular illness, diabetes, cancer and cognitive decline.

With that in mind, it's hard for scientists to determine the amount of beneficial antioxidants in apple cider vinegar itself. Some may be diminished during processing, not to mention unused by our bodies once ingested. Since produce, pulses, nuts and seeds provide a slew of well-established benefits, you're 100% better off getting your immune-boosting nutrients from nature's best foods, and using vinegar for dressing and dipping.

2. It helps digest carbs.

Sorry, but apple cider vinegar doesn't give you a free pass when it comes to bagels. One small 2006 study linked the liquid to limiting the negative effects of high-carb, high-glycemic-index meals but you should be avoiding those processed carbs anyway! You can fill up on veggies, fruit, whole grains, pulses and low-fat dairy with or without vinegar to get the same health benefits.

3. It zaps fat.

Studies suggest the acetic acid in vinegar may help reduce fat production in the liver and improve blood cholesterol levels overall. The caveat: You can't exactly dunk chicken fingers in apple cider vinegar and expect magic to happen. While research on vinegar may appear promising, skipping fried, fatty foods is a well-established way to help reduce total cholesterol and improve overall health.

4. It lowers blood sugar.

It could help, but don't bet on it. Some research linked acetic acid with a mild reduction in blood sugar spikes after meals, slowing food's movement through the GI tract. Another proposed mechanism: Acetic acid reduces the activity of carbohydrate-digesting enzymes. However, current research relies on hyper-specific populations, small sample sizes or rats, not humans.

Diabetics should proceed with caution when using vinegar, since it may affect how much insulin is needed for a meal or snack. For the rest of us, stable blood sugar levels are linked to diets high in plant-based foods and regular exercise. A drop of vinegar won't cause significant changes.

5. It helps you lose weight.

While I wish it were true, just one tablespoon, shot glass or ramekin of vinegar cannot help with weight loss! The only research linking vinegar to weight loss used a tiny sample size and poor controls. Plus, the subjects in the study were on a weight-loss diet to begin with!

The only way to shed excess pounds in a sustainable way is to fill up on veggies and fruit, cut back on saturated fat and added sugar and get movin'!

6. It kills bacteria.

Simply because "acid" is a byproduct of vinegar production doesn't mean vinegar is a germ-killer, nor does it "detox" any vital organs. The antimicrobial claims made about apple cider vinegar stem from the fermentation process. Science can point to a reduced risk of foodborne illness, not the colds, infections and stomach bugs caused by bacteria and viruses. Staying hydrated, sleeping well and filling up on veggies will stave off sickness much more effectively.

7. It wards off heart disease.

Due to acetic acid's possible link to reduced cholesterol levels, fruit-based vinegar may help prevent cardiovascular disease, especially clot formation. However, the science isn't substantial enough to make a definitive statement. Researchers don't fully understand role of polyphenols, the antioxidants found in plant-based foods that protect cells from damage.

Your best bet is adding apple cider vinegar to veggie-rich foods, which can help to bring out flavor while avoiding creamy, sugary dressings. Vinegar itself may be beneficial, but there's no solid evidence to recommend chugging the stuff just yet!

8. It's packed with probiotics.

Probiotic properties of apple cider vinegar are minimal at best. That's because they're found in the "mother" of vinegars, the substrate leftover after fermentation. Since most commercially-available vinegars are highly-processed, good bacteria is hard to come by. Foods like Greek yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, miso and tempeh are all better sources with the added benefit of filling you up.

9. Drinking it in the morning helps you eat less during the day.

Sorry, but nope! Delayed gastric emptying seen in the (limited) existing research on vinegar is likely caused by slower digestive enzyme activity in the GI tract. However, drinking apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach can be tough on your digestive system and cause heartburn. Steer clear of supplements, tonics and elixirs that make this hunger-killing claim, and fill up on breakfasts that combine fiber and protein instead.

10. It cures everything!

If you love apple cider vinegar so much that you're using it as a salad dressing or produce topping, by all means, go for it! Vinegar contains zero calories, enhances flavor and poses a low health risk, except for GERD-sufferers. But if you're solely sipping the stuff for its purported health "benefits," science says you're out of luck — at least for now. Your best bet is to fill up on plant-based foods, which will provide everything you need to stay healthy.

Bottom line: Vinegar is for salads, not supplements.
