Apple cider vinegar is made from the fermenting of apples. The apples are pulverized and the juice is squeezed out. In the first fermentation stage, yeast and sugar are added to the apple juice. Alcohol is made from this process. In the second stage of the fermentation, bacteria are added to the alcohol and vinegar is the result. According to WebMD, “The main ingredient of apple cider vinegar, or any vinegar, is acetic acid. However, vinegars also have other acids, vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids.”

Research and Studies
Some doctors and nutritionists are dismissive of the apple cider vinegar diet, believing it is just another fad that does not produce any real results. The diet has been around since the 1950s when Dr. D.C. Jarvis first proposed the idea that apple cider vinegar could help with weight loss in his book “Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health.” But the few studies available on apple cider vinegar only suggest that the vinegar may be helpful in obesity. More definitive studies show that apple cider vinegar lowers cholesterol in rats and that it also lowers glucose levels in the blood of diabetics. As more research is done, there may one day be a study that shows that apple cider vinegar does help in losing weight.
