An apple cider vinegar drink can really boost the results of your weight loss diet, studied have proven.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) boosts the metabolism, helping the body to burn more calories.
Studies have found having two tablespoons of the fermented apple drink a day is the optimum amount.
A study of 175 obese people asked them to take either one or two teaspoons of the drink each day for a three month period.
Weight loss: Apple cider vinegar pills better than the drink?
Slimmers who had two tablespoons a day saw an increased average weight loss of 3.7 pounds, meaning drinking it at least twice a day could speed up results.
Some find drinking apple cider vinegar hard due to the intense flavour and drinking apple cider vinegar with honey could ruin your weight loss efforts.
However, there are pill versions of the supplement available. Should you use pills or drink the acidic liquid?
It is not known if taking pills will have the same weight loss effects as drinking the vinegar, as many of the promoted benefits of these pills are based on studies involving the liquid.
However, there may be some potential benefits. Apple cider vinegar pills are unlikely to cause the same erosion of the tooth enamel the liquid does.
