With the effect it is (apple) vinegar

What's Behind the Apple Cider Vinegar Product Advertisement?

Apple cider vinegar is advertised as a "panacea". Since drinking water with apple cider vinegar is not for everyone, there are also dietary supplements made with apple cider vinegar powder. Apple cider vinegar is said to help with digestive problems, but also with asthma, warts, weather sensitivity, headaches, ringing in the ears or hemorrhoids. It is also touted as an indispensable helper for diabetes and high cholesterol levels. In particular, however, it is considered a natural beauty product and a "bioactive fat burner" that has a fat-releasing / fat-reducing effect and is therefore intended to help you lose weight.

However, there is no scientific evidence for this. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has determined that there is insufficient evidence that apple cider vinegar (as a powder) has a digestive effect. The promotion of fat burning or skin health or beauty by taking apple cider vinegar in capsule form has also not been proven.

There are studies (with a very small number of participants) that have shown an influence of vinegar on insulin metabolism and of apple cider vinegar on the satiety of rats with a high-fat diet. However, these study results cannot be transferred to the powder contained in food supplements or even to the capsules themselves.

What ingredients are in apple cider vinegar capsules?

Most capsules contain around 500 mg of apple cider vinegar extract, some also contain apple pectin and apple fiber. The composition of the extract can differ depending on the manufacturing process.

Apple pectin and apple fiber can have a slightly satiating effect as dietary fiber if enough is consumed at the same time.

Apple cider vinegar contains small amounts of micronutrients - how many of them actually end up in the apple cider vinegar capsules is questionable. Manufacturer information on this is scarce or even non-existent. Most apple cider vinegar supplements have B vitamins such as B1, B2 or B6, vitamin C, folic acid or biotin added to them. The naturalness is then no longer so far away. To recognize this, it helps to take a look at the list of ingredients: Synthetically produced vitamins are usually listed by their name, such as vitamin C / ascorbic acid. If the vitamin comes from a natural source, it says "Vitamin C from acerola extract".

Tip: Anyone who uses apple cider vinegar as a salad ingredient or spice can do so without hesitation. There is nothing wrong with taking one or two teaspoons of fruit vinegar - with or without water. Before attempting self-treatment, however, it is better to ask your doctor if you have complaints.

What is apple cider vinegar?

For apple cider vinegar, apples are pressed into cider. This is then fermented to apple cider vinegar with the addition of acetic acid bacteria. Only some of the vitamins and secondary plant substances contained in apples go into the vinegar, more with naturally cloudy vinegar than with clear. Its mineral content per 100 g roughly corresponds to that of 100 g apples. However, it is not so high that it should be particularly praised. For this - as the law wants - at least 15% of the so-called reference amount (NRV) must be contained in 100 g. This is not achieved for either potassium, magnesium or calcium. That being said, you don't usually consume such large amounts of apple cider vinegar.
