Fruit vinegar has a long history of human production and consumption. It was established many years earlier than grain vinegar. Grape vinegar became very popular in 10th century France.

After the 17th century, European countries combined their products and food habits to produce various fruit vinegar. As a result, different fruit vinegar products appear in an endless stream.

The commercial development of fruit vinegar products began in the late 1980s. With the continuous excavation and discovery of fruit vinegar’s nutrition and health care functions, consumers have gradually recognized and began to accept fruit vinegar products and developed a specific market.

Apple cider vinegar has become an essential member of the fruit vinegar family because of its valuable raw materials and widespread use. As a result, its output and quality are gradually increasing.

Specialties and uses of apple cider vinegar

  • It’s Fruity.
  • Sweet and sour.
  • Refreshing and delicious.
  • It does not contain pigments and preservatives.
  • It is rich in amino acids such as aspartic acid, serine, tryptophan.
  • Apple cider vinegar contains more than ten times the phosphorus, iron, zinc, and other minerals found in apples.

Apple cider vinegar has good nutritional value. It has a skincare function and can relieve alcohol, protect the liver, and prevent intoxication. One cup before the wine can inhibit the absorption of alcohol, and one cup after wine can reduce alcohol and avoid intoxication. In addition, men eat more apple cider vinegar, which is also healthy.

1. Alkaline beverage

Apple cider vinegar is a kind of beverage with acid taste and alkaline metabolism in the human body. Therefore, it has the function of neutralizing acidic food such as fish, meat, egg, rice, and noodles.

It is helpful to the protection of various nutrients and the absorption of calcium. Most acidic foods contain calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, sodium, manganese, zinc, and other metal elements, such as apples and tomatoes.

Although they taste sour at the entrance, these organic acids decompose into carbon dioxide and various acidic salts in the body and become alkaline. That can effectively improve the acidic constitution of the human body and make the human body weak alkaline.

2. Rich in pectin

Pectin is helpful to the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine. Bacteria can produce essential nutrients for the human body, such as vitamin B group (vitamin B1, B2, B6, B12, niacin, pantothenic acid), vitamin K2, etc. In addition, pectin can promote fat, steroids, and bile excretion. Also, it can increase the secretion of steroids can reduce the incidence of sex hormone-related cancer.

Pectin can delay the intestinal absorption of sugar and lipid and control blood sugar rise. When pectin enters the human body, it increases water absorption. Pectin can increase its volume up to 10 times its original size. It makes full feeling and delays the emptying of the stomach. This will help you to prevent obesity and lose weight.

Pectin is different from other cellulose. It will not affect the absorption of calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, and other trace elements. Pectin can absorb Led, nickel, cobalt, and other heavy metal ions in food. It can not be digested by digestive fluid to remove toxins from the body effectively.

3. Rich in vitamins

A lot of vitamin antioxidants in apple cider vinegar can promote metabolism.

4. Rich in organic acids

Malic acid can directly engage in human metabolism and directly absorb it into the human body. And it’ll provide energy to the body in a short time, reduce fatigue, play the role of anti-fatigue, and rapid recovery of physical strength.

At the same time, malic acid can promote ammonia metabolism, reduce blood ammonia concentration, and protect the liver. Malic acid can also maintain the energy metabolism of the myocardium and protect the ischemic myocardial layer of myocardial infarction.

Acetic acid can promote the secretion of gastric juice, increase appetite, and promote the absorption of calcium in other foods.

Valine, which is one of the amino acids, can promote wound healing and improve liver function.

Aspartic acid has a protective effect on muscle, can treat angina pectoris, has a preventive impact on myocardial infarction, and has the effect of preventing and reducing fatigue.

Glutamate, the anion of glutamic acid, is involved in the metabolism of protein and sugar in the brain, promotes oxidation, improves central nervous activity, maintains and promotes the function of brain cells, and promotes the increase of intelligence.

5. Prevents colds

Apple cider vinegar can improve immunity. It is rich in vitamins and amino acids, can synthesize calcium acetate with calcium in the body, enhance calcium absorption, and strengthen the body. 

Apple cider vinegar is also rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can prevent cell cancer and cell aging and increase the body’s resistance.

6. Reduces fatigue

Apple cider vinegar is the best drink for office workers to reduce fatigue.

Usually, fruit vinegar contains more than ten kinds of organic acids and many different amino acids needed by the human body. The content of organic acid varies with the type of vinegar. They make the aerobic metabolism smooth, help remove the deposited lactic acid, and play the role of reducing fatigue.

Generally, around 3 pm is the most fatiguing time of the day. However, you can choose to drink 250ml apple cider vinegar at this time, which can have a perfect effect.

7. Beauty drink at night

The health value of apple cider vinegar 2

The processing methods of fruit vinegar can be summarized as follows.

  • Fresh fruit vinegar.
  • Fruit juice vinegar.
  • Fresh fruit soak vinegar.
  • Fruit wine vinegar.

Vinegar made from fresh fruit is fermented with fresh fruit, characterized by low cost, strong seasonality, high acidity, and suitable for seasoning.

Fruit juice vinegar is directly fermented with fruit juice, which can also be produced in a non-production area and is not affected by seasons. It has high acidity and is suitable for seasoning fruit vinegar.

Fresh fruit soaking vinegar is like fresh fruit soaking in a specific concentration of alcohol solution or vinegar solution. After fresh fruit fragrance, fruit acid, and some nutrients enter into the alcohol solution or vinegar solution, acetic acid fermentation is carried out. It is characterized by simple technology, good aroma, and high acidity. Therefore, it is suitable for seasoning fruit vinegar and drinking fruit vinegar.

Fruit wine vinegar is made from apple wine. The apple cider vinegar processing methods can be divided into solid fermentation and liquid fermentation. Both fermentation has different fermentation processes.

How to buy apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is produced by microbial fermentation of apple wine. Apple cider vinegar with good quality has a long-brewing time of up to 6-10 months. This kind of apple cider is mostly light brown, with filiform precipitates inside, not selling well. The sediments are yeast used for fermentation, called mother, and pectin, which is not decomposed and does not affect drinking.

When purchasing apple cider vinegar, pay attention to the label and pay attention to the color and state of vinegar. The liquid of the synthetic vinegar is transparent and colorless. Therefore, after shaking, the foam instantly disappears. On the other hand, the fluid of natural brewing vinegar is pale yellow, and the foam appears after shaking, which is not easy to disappear and has a specific viscosity.

The functions of vitamins and antioxidants are well known. Apple cider vinegar releases the elements in the above substances, and that can help to

  • Whiten and sterilize the skin.
  • Lighten melanin.
  • Resist oxidation.
  • Prevent colour spots.
  • Supplement nutrients needed by the skin.
  • Shrink pores.

The lactic acid and aldehydes contained in apple cider vinegar can increase the skin’s blood circulation and gently stimulate the skin to achieve whitening. In addition, it makes the skin more smooth and delicate.

Apple cider vinegar contains many kinds of organic acids.

  • Succinic acid
  • Malic acid
  • Citric acid
  • Tartaric acid
  • Gluconic acid
  • Fumaric acid
  • Ketoglutaric acid
  • Formic acid
  • Acetic acid

These organic acids can promote the metabolism of sugar in the human body, especially after many movements. The lactic acid content in the human body increases sharply, resulting in fatigue. Organic acids, such as acetic acid, can make aerobic metabolism smoothly. The lactic acid and acetone deposited in the muscle will be decomposed to eliminate fatigue.

Apple cider vinegar contains many acetic acids, which are antibacterial and disinfection. Therefore, regular drinking of apple cider vinegar can prevent infection and cold. It also contains some exogenous physiological active ingredients such as flavonoids, vitamins, inorganic salts, and amino acids.

Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, can prevent infection and cold in the human body to form a kind of highly active endogenous substance. That can clear away the peroxides produced by the human body. And reduce the formation of peroxides in the process of aging, inhibit cell aging, and delay the aging of the human body.

Vitamin C also has a powerful function. It can promote the decomposition of strong carcinogen nitrosamine in the human body. And also prevent its synthesis in the body so that you can reduce its content to avoid the human body from being harmed, improve immunity, increase the body’s resistance, and prevent the occurrence of cancer.

Eating more apples can reduce weight, while apple cider vinegar contains many antioxidants needed by the human body, including amino acids and vitamins. On the one hand, they can accelerate the catabolism of sugar and protein. On the other hand, they can also promote body fat metabolism, making the accumulated fat in the human body burn quickly and prevent accumulation.

The pectin in the fruit vinegar will absorb water and expand after entering the human body, and the volume will become about ten times the original. So it can produce a sense of fullness, which will reduce the desire of the human body to eat food. So it can well prevent the occurrence of obesity and lose weight.

Moreover, the fruit acid in fruit vinegar can act directly on the intestinal wall of the human body. Act as the mesh adsorbent of the intestinal cell membrane. Thus, preventing the absorption of macromolecular substances such as sugars and can tightly combine with the Fat group in food. Further prevent the absorption of fat and other macromolecular substances, which can lead to obesity, cut off the supply chain of fat and promote the rapid decomposition and discharge of fat in blood lipid and adipose tissue. Thus, under the two-way effect, it can achieve the result of weight loss.

Health care function

Apple cider vinegar is rich in many healthy health care substances, such as pectin. That can help the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. Beneficial bacteria can produce vitamin B, B6, B12, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin K2, and other trace elements necessary for the human body. It can also absorb heavy metal ions in food, such as lead, nickel, cobalt, etc. So it can help the human body to discharge toxins.

Moreover, pectin can delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and lipid in the intestine prolong its stay time in the stomach, thus controlling the rise of blood glucose. So it can regulate blood glucose and blood pressure. The rich amino acids in fruit vinegar, such as glutamic acid, can promote the metabolism of protein and sugar in the brain, maintain the function of brain cells, improve the activity of the central nervous system, and improve intelligence to a certain extent.

Valine can improve liver function. Aspartic acid can help treat angina pectoris, protect muscles, prevent myocardial infarction, and relieve fatigue. Apple cider vinegar, such as niacin and pectin, can promote cholesterol, fat, steroid, and bile excretion, reduce cholesterol levels in the body, and increase the secretion of steroids that can help reduce the incidence rate of sex hormones related cancers.

Apple cider vinegar weight loss principle

The health value of apple cider vinegar 3
weight loss

Apple cider vinegar can lose weight because the fermented apple contains pectin. This pectin can help reduce the fat content. The “fruit acid element” contained in apple cider weight loss has 30-80 million fruit acid molecules. That does not enter the blood, does not pass through the liver metabolism, directly acts on the human intestinal wall. So that closely combines with the Fat group in the food. And completely prevent the absorption of fat, polysaccharide, and other macromolecular substances. So it can quickly lose weight.

This process not only cuts off the Fat supply, and induces fat to accelerate dispersion, promotes fat in blood fat adipose tissue to decompose and expel rapidly. Also, Fructis acid acts as an adsorbent for the membrane mesh of intestinal cells. That prevents the absorption of significant substances restores the membrane mesh. Without a new fat supplement, it is consumed continuously, with a two-way effect and natural and rapid consumption, making the fat of the waist, abdomen, buttock, and thigh decrease day by day.

How to distinguish good apple cider vinegar products?

The apple cider vinegar sold on the market is rarely pure Apple fermented products. Most of which are mixed with corn vinegar essence, even without apple cider vinegar at all. There is not much difference in the effect of weight loss or blood sugar control. It’s not difficult to distinguish the purity of apple cider. But it needs to be compared with similar products at the same time. Then, the results will be more objective.

Apple cider vinegar will smell the aroma of Apple fermentation. But not the real apple flavor, or it’s spiced. At the same time, the acidity of apple cider vinegar is low, so the taste will not choke. Compared with the general grain vinegar concentrate, it will be a pungent and difficult apple cider vinegar’s soft smell.

Thus, it is a portion of indispensable health food for those who often eat out or meat.

How to add apple cider vinegar?

The health value of apple cider vinegar 4

People who are not afraid of acid can drink two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar directly with three meals a day. That contains about 400mg of acetic acid or is diluted with boiling water. However, most people may prefer to swallow concentrated ACV capsules directly. Generally, apple cider vinegar concentrate contains about 35-37% acetic acid. Suppose a 500mg ACV capsule contains about 180-200mg of acetic acid, two ACV capsules with meals. You can achieve the same effect as drinking vinegar directly.
