What Does Apple Cider Vinegar Do?
Traditionally, vinegar has been a staple in many food dishes, salad dressings, and condiments as a way to add extra flavour, extend shelf life, or assist with pickling. Currently, it's being marketed more for its potential health benefits, largely thanks to acetic acid.
What Is Acetic Acid?
The active component of vinegar is acetic acid, which is a short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) that your body also produces as a byproduct whenever fat is turned into fuel (beta-oxidation). SCFAs have been shown to directly improve glycemic control, thereby reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Acetic acid has also been shown to lower fasting plasma glucose, as well as increase insulin sensitivity. ACV contains between 4-8 percent acetic acid.
What Are the Potential Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?
Helps Control Blood Sugar: Vinegar has been shown in several studies to improve glycemic control in healthy subjects. One of the first studies to show this was one in which participants added vinegar to a salad prior to bread consumption and observed lower blood glucose levels compared to the same meal without vinegar.
Results from these studies suggest that post-meal glucose and insulin response is lowered for up to two hours with vinegar consumption. The majority of these studies used vinegar amounts achievable as part of a normal daily diet, equivalent to acetic acid doses between 0.5 and 2 grams, and have been consumed with 50-75 grams of carbohydrates per meal.
Packed With Polyphenols: Vinegar contains chemicals known as polyphenols. Polyphenols are phytonutrients (plant-based micronutrients) that function like antioxidants and have been shown to promote gut health and fight bad bacteria.
Apple Cider Vinegar, one of nature’s gifts made from the humble apple. So much more than a cupboard staple! Willy’s ACV with ‘The Mother’ contains probiotic bacteria; acetobacter and lactobacillus and with a ph of 5, can help support an alkaline diet. Whilst Apple Cider Vinegar is slightly acidic in ph, when metabolized within the body, Apple Cider Vinegar actually promotes alkalinity, along with other foods like lentils, fresh green leafy vegetables, fruit and nuts. Our advice, however, is to follow a balanced diet. Plenty of broccoli, plenty of exercises and a daily dose of Apple Cider Vinegar as part of a dressing, smoothie, or for the purists, simply in a glass of water!
Willy's Apples - Because of The Mother!
"We don’t heat treat our Apple Cider Vinegar, leaving The Mother intact. The Mother is the strains of proteins and bacteria that form when Apple Cider Vinegar is left unpasteurised and raw. She might appear as large cobwebs or as small darker particles in the Apple Cider Vinegar. Either way, don’t be afraid of her. She’s what makes our ACV so special and we recommend keeping her in your daily dose, however, you may choose to enjoy it." Willy's Orchards.
This Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother (mother being the important compounds left in it which you don’t get in supermarket ones) is made purely from 300-year-old untouched apple orchards - a humble home to 48 varieties of apples. Unfiltered, unpasteurised, keeping the many benefits ‘The Mother’ has to offer.
Each tree has remained untouched by modern-day farming practices throughout its 300-year existence and boasts exclusion from pesticides and artificial fertilisers. So it’s pretty special, and noted to be one of the oldest orchards on the land! In Herefordshire
