Paul Bragg founded Bragg Live Foods in 1912. According to the Bragg website, its apple cider vinegar may aid in weight control. While the vinegar may help limit your appetite, you may not want to count on it as your ticket to losing those unwanted pounds. Consult your doctor before adding Bragg's apple cider vinegar to your diet.
Bragg's for Weight Loss
The Bragg's brochure for its apple cider vinegar cites a 2004 study published in Diabetes Care that supports the use of the vinegar for weight loss. This study investigated the effects of vinegar on blood sugar and insulin levels rather than on weight loss, however. While improved insulin and blood sugar levels may affect satiety, research specifically on apple cider vinegar and weight loss still is necessary to know if it really works.
