We listened to what our mums were after and developed an easier way to get your serve of ‘The Mother’ with The Healthy Mummy Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets!
No more drinking it by the spoonful!
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is a food traditionally used in naturopathic and nutritional medicine to support digestion. It is typically served with or before a meal to support the digestion of foods in the stomach.
Find out what it’s all about below!
What the Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets do!
Honestly, what can’t apple cider vinegar do?
ACV contains up to 5% acidity which when taken internally increases the acidity of the stomach.
Increasing the acidity levels of the stomach is believed to improve the digestive process by assisting the body to break down food during digestion.
Benefits of ‘the mother’
‘The mother’ is created during the fermentation of ACV. Unpasteurised unfiltered ACV retains the fermentation by-product which is where ‘the mother’ comes from.
‘The mother’ contains acetic acid which is believed to have the digestive effects of ACV.
Purified ACV commonly found in the supermarket vinegar section has ‘the mother’ removed, and this is an important part of the functionality of ACV.
Don’t worry we have you covered! Our tablets include ‘the mother’.
Benefits of acetic acid
ACV alters your pH levels to make your body less acidic and this increases metabolism, increases bile production, supports weight loss, lowers cholesterol, helps decrease blood sugars and blood pressure.
Why take BEFORE a meal?
ACV can help to balance blood sugar levels and make you feel fuller so you won’t feel like eating as much – so it can act as an appetite depressant.
High blood sugar levels are often linked with obesity and creating abdominal fat, so it’s important to keep your blood sugar level as even (not too high or too low) as possible.
Traditional liquid form
Apple Cider Vinegar in liquid form is definitely an acquired taste and something we carefully considered when making these tablets was that a lot of our mums want to use this product but cannot keep it down due to the taste.
Our tablets are TASTELESS! So you get the benefits WITHOUT the taste. What’s more is that you only have to take this tablet once a day! Whereas the liquid form can be taken up to 3 times a day mixed into your water.
So pop once and DONE!
Why you CAN’T use ACV in breastfeeding and pregnancy
Pregnant and breastfeeding women can not take the ACV tablet, as the levels are too concentrated.
Healthy Mummy nutritionist Cheree Sheldon says, “consuming ACV in dietary form as part of a salad dressing is totally fine, however, when you take it therapeutically, the dose is too strong to be safe to take during pregnancy or lactation.
Another concern for pregnant and breastfeeding women is consuming foods and drinks unpasteurized, and government recommendation strongly advise against it.”
While it is unclear whether ACV tablets with ‘the mother’ would be an issue for bacteria, it is always best to be cautious and not take anything that could be potentially harmful for you or baby.
Healthy Mummy Brooke gives her verdict
“So the verdict is in. This is after two weeks of religiously taking The Healthy Mummy Apple Cider Vinegar tablets and Metabolism Support Tablets. I am done 1kg and my bloating is down even with shark week upon me.
The first picture was taken the morning I started using them and the second yesterday, two weeks later and day three of shark week which is usually my most bloated day.”
Brooke loves how her bloating has decreased
“I am so happy with the results. I would usually have really bad bloating with lots of pain but not this time around. I really hope that these are staying because these are one of my favourite products now.”
