Apple cider vinegar has been around for a long time as a condiment, seasoning, folk remedy, and cold cure. I put some in my homemade cold remedy which tastes horrible but works better than anything I’ve found over-the counter (tea made from real ginger, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, honey).
But recently it’s become popular for its diet and beauty benefits. Some people say it does wonders for their hair and skin, and others use it as a diet aid.
There is some science behind the weight loss claims. In one study, drinking a small amount of apple cider vinegar every night lowered blood sugar. Japanese research from 2009 also found a link between vinegar consumption and lower body weight and BMI.
