It may help to improve digestion
The human gut contains a large number of microorganisms including bacteria known as the gut microbiota, and these microorganisms are important for our overall digestive health . Like other fermented foods such as yoghurt, our raw unfiltered range of ACV can be considered a probiotic as it contains healthy bacteria which help to maintain a healthy gut microbiome, and is particularly beneficial as apples contain pectin which has been shown to aid digestion [2,3].
It may help support your immune system
Our gut microbiome is not only important for our digestive health, as recent research has found it to be closely linked to our immune function . One of the main functions of our microbiota is to protect our intestine from harmful pathogens and bacteria that enter our gut, and maintaining a healthy gut microbiota helps our gut immune system to fight harmful pathogens efficiently .
It may help to reduce blood glucose levels
The main component of our range is acetic acid, and this has recently gained a lot of interest as it has been found to be effective in reducing blood glucose levels . ACV may therefore be able to help in the daily management of type 2 diabetes, as well as reducing the risk of obesity which is frequently associated with diabetes .
