Apple cider vinegar is a well-known product that promotes wellness and may offer health benefits, such as supporting healthy weight management, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, and managing normal blood sugar levels.
Apple cider vinegar is created by the process of combining crushed apples with yeast which ferments the sugars and turns them into alcohol. Bacteria is introduced to further ferment the alcohol, producing acetic acid, the main active compound in vinegar. The acetic acid considered to be responsible for apple cider vinegar’s health benefits.
