The weight management industry is a huge business in the United States. In 2016, it was estimated to be worth $66 billion!1 But what if one of the keys to weight loss wasn’t found in dangerous pills, processed diet foods or expensive surgeries?

One of your best weight loss tools can be found at some grocery stores for under five dollars!

Vinegar for Health and Weight Loss

In a study from Japan, acetic acid in vinegar was shown to suppress body fat accumulation in mice.2 Animals fed a high-fat diet and supplemented with acetic acid developed about 10 percent less body fat than mice just eating the diet. 2 Thus, vinegar – or, acetic acid – may prevent the buildup of fat, and therefore weight gain!

Apple Cider Vinegar is an excellent choice for a raw, unfiltered and organic weight-loss tool. Not only does the acetic acid block fat accumulation, but the prebiotics in vinegar also contribute to better digestion and immunity! Replace all your recipes calling for refined white vinegar with healthier apple cider vinegar. Try some today.

This isn’t the first time vinegar has been linked to weight control. In 2005, scientists from Lund University reported that increasing intake of the common flavoring could help dieters eat less and reduce cravings brought on by sugar peaks after meals.3

But that’s just the beginning...
Vinegar’s many healing properties have been documented time and again. In a 2017 study involving mice, vinegar suppressed inflammation, thus becoming a powerful force in the battle against some types of liver damage. 4 Another study found that when apple cider vinegar was added to the diets of people with high cholesterol, it reduced total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides. 5 There have been multiple studies and findings about the many beneficial properties of vinegar for all sorts of disease and health problems.

Vinegar and Body Ecology

At Body Ecology, we have long recognized the benefits of vinegar, but the TYPE of vinegar makes all the difference. Research shows that different vinegars have different impacts on the body, some more beneficial than others. 4 White vinegar that is readily available at most supermarkets is refined, and therefore; acid-forming. This means that using white vinegar can create an acidic condition in your blood, setting the stage for illness and disease.

We recommend raw apple cider vinegar for your weight loss goals.

Apple Cider Vinegar -- For your health

Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar is a fermented food. It has medicinal properties and has been used throughout history as a healing food. The benefits of apple cider vinegar have now also been confirmed in modern research.

Using apple cider vinegar as part of your Body Ecology diet will not only aid in weight loss, it will also help:

  • Restore your body's natural pH balance.
  • Aid digestion. It helps stimulate your stomach acid, aiding the digestion of protein and fats.
  • Promote the growth of healthy microflora. While apple cider vinegar is a fermented food already, it is also a prebiotic, which feeds probiotics (the healthy microflora in your inner ecosystem).
  • Stop sugar cravings. Next time you have a craving for that bowl of ice cream or piece of chocolate cake after dinner, drinking a small amount of vinegar diluted with water may stop you from indulging.
  • Decrease cholesterol in certain individuals5

Make sure you buy the right kind of vinegar to reap the best health benefits. Remember, it’s not all about blocking fat, but also making your body more efficient in general!

For healing, detoxification, and weight loss, apple cider vinegar should be used as part of the Body Ecology program.
