Hiding at the back of your deepest, darkest food cupboard you'll likely find a cluster of little used and slowly declining oils and vinegars. One such vinegar you might find, if you're lucky, is Apple Cider Vinegar. If you haven't, don't worry because Swanson Diet Double Strength Apple Cider Vinegar is the dieting phenomenon you never even knew about.
So what is vinegar exactly and why is it so popular? It's actually the fermented by-product of any fruit based beverage. It is the reason why a bottle of wine, when left to oxidise and interact with the bacteria in the atmosphere, will gradually turn into vinegar. Aside from its sweet and sour flavour it has actually long been used through medicinal history to treat a range of conditions.
Even the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates touted it as a vital cleanser, mixing it with honey as a restorative fillip for those with coughs and colds.
When the bubonic plague struck the French population in 1721, a crisis beyond the disease broke out. Bodies littered the streets and people refused to remove them, fearful that the disease would transmit to them from the addled cadavers. In an attempt to stem the tide of death, the authorities released several groups of inmates from prison on the grounds that they would bury the infected dead. Almost all agreed but almost all died as a result too. The only exception were a group of inmates who drank pints of apple cider vinegar to protect them. Miraculously, it worked. ‘Four thieves vinegar' is still sold in France to this day.
Swanson Diet Double Strength Apple Cider Vinegar is an incomparably potent form of apple cider vinegar pills, distilled into these handy capsules meaning you don't even have to worry about drinking vinegar, you can just get on with your day feeling cleansed, lean and ready for the day.
So how can this seemingly anodyne home food product actually be transformed into a relevant dieting solution? Well, the answer lies in not just what the cider can do to your digestive process but also in what it offers up in terms of nutrients. Swanson Diet Double Apple cider Vinegar actually speeds up the body's ability to deconstruct and source nutrients from proteins and fats with greater efficacy and resolution from the body's digestive system, this in turn, means an altogether quicker metabolism with far more vitality.
Hidden deep within the amber shades of Swanson Diet Double Apple cider Vinegar (albeit in pill form here) is the fibre Pectin. There is increasing evidence to suggest that fibres such as Pectin can actually augment someone's sensation of fullness after eating a meal. This could, in theory, lower the desire to continue eating, especially in snack form - the diet's greatest enemy.
From the french for ‘sour wine', Swanson Diet Double Apple cider Vinegar is also known to flush through the system - utilising not only its healthy flavonoids (powerful plant based antioxidants) but also working as a mild diuretic. Meaning that it can accelerate our excretive process and even help with heart health.
