Hopes & Benefits: Introducing Heivy Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies
By Jeremias O'Young
Apple cider vinegar has been the latest trend in the supplement industry since 2017 with a plethora of health benefits it’s celebrated for: gut health, metabolic accelerator, digestion relief, and many more. Heivy, with its latest ACV Gummies, takes part to extend its expertise in nurturing and nourishing the beauty & health community with a quick and effective solution for modern time health: ready-to-go, premium ingredients, fun & sharable in the form of fruity gummy bites.
Let’s dive into why ACV is called a superfood in the first place by looking at one of its most famous active ingredient: acetic acid.
Acetic Acid: The Powerful Compound
Apple cider vinegar is made from apples — cores, peels, flesh, and all. To turn apples into vinegar, they need to be combined with yeast, which starts the fermentation process. As the active ingredient found in all types of vinegar, acetic acid gives vinegar its signature sour taste and smell. Studies suggest acetic acid is one of the reasons why apple cider vinegar is said to have so many natural health benefits. For ACV in particular, the recognizable aroma of real fruits stands out as a welcomed flavor for Heivy's ACV gummies, which has more fruits than its name suggests: pomegranate and beetroot juices are key add-ons that contributes to the rich flavor than just apples.
In addition, Apple cider vinegar contains pectin, which is a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic and helps keep your digestive system healthy. For some, apple cider vinegar helps soothe acid reflux and protein digestion before heavy meals. The takeaways? It's most beneficial to take a Heivy ACV gummy before or after meals.
Why ACV is Better Than The Rest
Vinegar made from apples provide more antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals than vinegar made from distilled grains. This sets ACV apart from other types of vinegar with something called “the mother”.
The mother is essentially a ball of acetic acid, cellulose (fiber), enzymes, and bacteria. In other words, it’s where all of the “good stuff” is concentrated. Raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar is the only type of vinegar that’s sold with the mother, which is why many people believe ACV is more nutritious than the other varieties. Here at Heivy, all ACV gummies are made with "the mother" in USA facilities with highest standards.
Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Acetic acid is powerful enough to kill off the mycobacteria that can cause tuberculosis. It is powerful enough to kill other types of bacteria, which makes it useful as a non-toxic disinfectant. For this reason, ACV Gummies is a powerful antibacterial supplement.
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can also help balance high blood sugar, which may promote slow, gradual body weight loss. Studies showed that acetic acid could help reduce the body’s insulin response to refined carbohydrates. If you drink apple cider vinegar with or before meals you may prevent sugar cravings throughout the day. For this reason, ACV is a metabolism-boosting, fat-burning weight loss tonic.
Acetic acid can help improve nutrient uptake, especially iron. This is a major health benefit for those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, as plant iron (non-heme iron) is more difficult for the body to absorb than heme iron, which comes from animal products.
Apple cider vinegar has antiviral, anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a good natural remedy to have around during cold and flu season — both as a preventative measure and as a food to eat when you’re sick or have a sore throat. For this reason, Heivy ACV boosts immunity with true benefits from apple cider vinegar.
