  • The industry's search for the ultimate weight loss tool continues.

  • And recently, the hype train visited a little liquid substance known as Apple Cider Vinegar.

  • And boy, has it been quite the hype.

  • As with any weight loss sensation, the media goes nuts about it and claims that you MUST

  • drink apple cider vinegar if you want any chance to fit in your flashy skinny jeans.

  • So, is it actually worth all the hype, or is it just the next butter in your coffee?

  • Let's take a closer look.

  • Apple cider vinegar comes from the fermentation of apples into apple cider then the fermentation

  • of apple cider into its vinegar form.

  • Along with the vinegar, some unfiltered forms also contain a slime-like substance known

  • as 'mother of vinegar.'

  • Mother of vinegar, itself, has unsubstantiated claims such as curing acne, alleviating indigestion,

  • and containing antibacterial properties.

  • Some even claim it's the reason why apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight.

  • But the main ingredient in apple cider vinegar, and all vinegars for that matter, is the substance

  • known as acetic acid.

  • And, par for the course, there are unsubstantiated claims of acetic acid benefits, such as preventing

  • cancer and also curing acne.

  • Granted, there is research suggesting potential benefits, such as suppressing glucose absorption

  • speed, which can improve insulin sensitivity for diabetics, and also improving blood lipid

  • profiles.

  • But the main focus here is weight loss.

  • And with that focus, outside of some studies suggesting apple cider vinegar can increase

  • fullness, all of the hype and lore leads to one well-made study from Japan back in 2009.

  • In this double-blind study, 175 obese but healthy subjects were given either 0, 15,

  • or 30 milliliters of apple cider vinegar daily.

  • After 12 weeks, they found that body weight wassignificantly lower in both vinegar

  • intake groups than in the placebo group.”

  • Or, at least that's what's stated in the abstract.

  • And, I would wager, that was the line that many people took and ran with to suggest apple

  • cider vinegar to be a great weight loss tool.

  • But, let's actually look at the study in more detail.

  • Although it is true that the vinegar groups did lose weight, and has been theorized to

  • be because of increased AMPK activation, which induces fat energy breakdown, the amount of

  • weight loss was only on average 1.2 and 1.9 kilograms over 12 weeks.

  • That's only 0.4 and 0.6 kilograms, or 0.9 and 1.4 pounds a month.

  • That's it.

  • Granted, it's better than nothing, but rather unexceptional, especially for such strong

  • hype.

  • On top of this, the weight the subjects lost were all gained back in only 4 weeks.

  • Not only that, many improved health markers, such as improved blood pressure, cholesterol

  • levels, and body fat were reversed as well.

  • Even to achieve the small amount of weight loss, it will require prolonged consistent

  • consumption, which itself has not been deemed safe, with some reporting that it might induce

  • low potassium levels.

  • Which, funny enough, is also unsubstantiated.

  • But, if you choose to do so, it's been suggested to take 1 to 2 tablespoons per day, preferably

  • split among each of your meals.

  • But the results are clear: For weight loss, apple cider vinegar is just not that effective.

  • What do you think about apple cider vinegar?

  • Does it work for you?

  • Do you think this video is absolutely wrong?

  • Let me know in the comments!

  • As always, thanks for watching!

The industry's search for the ultimate weight loss tool continues.
