Experts are convinced that apple cider vinegar has the ability to trigger specific genes in the body that may accelerate and support breakdown of fat.
In addition, apple cider vinegar has proven to be very efficient when it comes to reducing blood sugar levels.

According to Johnston, apple cider vinegar has anti-glycemic properties that were scientifically proven. Even though this type of vinegar doesn’t stop the starch completely, it can prevent significant amount of starch from digestion and prevents boost of blood sugar levels.
The vast majority of people buy commercial apple cider vinegar found in health food stores and regular stores, but most of them are unaware of the fact that they can make one at home.
