Apple Cider Vinegar & Digestive Health

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is taking the health world by storm and for good reason! With an abundance of qualities and properties, ACV has been used as a home remedy for a long time. With the rising interest in probiotics, ACV once again takes center stage.

Probiotics

In order to understand probiotics, we have to understand our gut first. We know, that’s a tall order–but as the days go on, we learn more and more! Our gut is almost like its own little world, full of its own bacteria and micro-organisms. That’s where probiotics come in.

Think of probiotics as little soldiers that help your gut fight the good fight. Probiotic products contain bacteria and micro-organisms that help your gut dispose of bad bacteria, while encouraging good bacteria to thrive.

Apple Cider Vinegar

So, where does ACV come in? ACV happens to be connected to digestive health, just like probiotics. It contains helpful enzymes, like pectin, which comes from fermented apples. This enzyme helps encourage healthy bacteria growth.

Some nutritionists also believe the fermentation process brings out probiotic enzymes, but this is mostly due to organic ACV and beneficial bacteria it may hold if kept totally intact (if its’ not pasteurized). The acid from fermentation has also been thought to aid digestive health and even acid reflux.

Apple Cider: Probiotic

At Pure Planet, we like to use what Mother Earth has given us. That’s why we used our superfoods know-how to make ACV even better, including alleviating the bitter taste of vinegar. We’ve amped up the the digestive aid nutrients with our new Apple Cider: Probiotic.

Apple Cider: Probiotic contains ginger root, tumeric, lemon and probiotic Lactospore. Ginger root has been connected to help digestion and inflammation. Tumeric is also thought to have anti-inflammatory benefits, with many people using it when they have stomach issues. Lemon, while great-tasting, has also been tied to digestive health. Finally, Lactospore is a well-researched probiotic that can help encourage healthy gut flora. Together, these ingredients work together to make one great-tasting, effective superfood drink!
