Sleigh Your Sugar Cravings: Unwrap the Magic of Apple Cider Vinegar Supplements
Thanksgiving is over, and we’ve officially entered the winter wonderland of festive treats, tempting sweets, and the constant struggle to resist overindulging. Still feeling the guilt, weight, and excess sugar of last week’s Thanksgiving feast and its accompanying leftovers? Don’t let it put your tinsel in a tangle.
While many believe strong willpower is the way to avoid overdoing sweets, the reality is a bit more complex. Biological responses in the body lead to sugar cravings. And if we can rebalance the body on a physical level, we can approach sweets with a better chance of moderation and self-control. And there is one supplement that can help promote this balancing act: Apple Cider Vinegar.
What Causes Sugar Cravings?
The main reason for intense sugar cravings is imbalances in blood glucose levels. Low blood sugar triggers your body to desire sugar to bring those levels up. Makes sense, huh? There are other reasons, too. People who are depressed, stressed, or lonely often crave sweet treats because consuming sugar temporarily raises serotonin levels and improves mood. Of course, this backfires during a sugar crash, but the body knows what will help in the moment and sends physical signals to get what it needs. Finally, sugar cravings may indicate nutritional deficiencies, such as magnesium or tryptophan. This is good to know as we go into holiday parties, family gatherings, and our own kitchens that may suddenly feel like tiptoeing through a minefield of sweets.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Helps Curb Sugar Cravings
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been shown to promote stabilized blood sugar levels, promote feelings of fullness, and even support weight loss. By maintaining balanced blood sugar levels, you can reduce intense cravings and avoid the rollercoaster of spikes and crashes. This physical regulation will help you manage your snacking habits. Apple Cider Vinegar is also believed to delay stomach emptying, promoting the feeling of fullness. Feeling satisfied will put you in a better position for self-control when faced with trays and trays of sweets.
How to Take Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar can be consumed by drinking it or taking an ACV supplement. If you drink ACV, choose one with “the mother” that looks cloudy rather than clear. The mother contains strains of bacteria that hold many benefits, such as supporting digestion and the immune system. Dilute the ACV with water in a 4:1 ratio and drink it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. You can continue to drink your mixture throughout the day or before meals. The downside of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar is its unpleasant smell and pungent, acidic flavor. Many people find the smell and taste quite off-putting, even when diluted. Also, its high acidic levels can erode tooth enamel, especially with regular use.
Apple Cider Vinegar Supplements are an excellent alternative to drinking raw ACV without the unpleasant side effects. Supplements can be taken shortly before meals for best results. Apple Cider Vinegar+ is made with quality ingredients and includes ginger root, papaya, and pineapple fruit for additional support on digestion and glucose levels. Say goodbye to the pungent aroma and sharp taste and hello to the easy-to-swallow capsules that make incorporating ACV into your routine a breeze.
