Apple cider vinegar is an acidic solution produced by fermenting apples. The "fat burning effect" is contributed by the combination of acidic vinegar and fruit pectin. It is obtained from the fermentation of apple juice. It also contains important minerals, trace elements and vitamins, as well acetic acid, propionic acid, lactic acid, enzymes, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and apple pectin. The fermentation provides alcoholic apple cider that is combined with oxygen to produce acetic acid. The pH of apple cider vinegar is very favorable for the body.

Intake In order to complete the diet, you must take one, two, or three teaspoons of apple vinegar before each meal.
