The benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) are largely praised… and dismissed. There isn’t a lot of solid proof that it works for everything that you may want it to, but there is a lot of anecdotal reporting that people have had great success with it for various health ailments. There are actual studies on the effectiveness of Apple Cider Vinegar, just not in every area for which it is purported to be beneficial. A lot of people use it for weight loss and appetite control, but that’s not what is drawing me in. My #1 interest in ACV is if it will help with heartburn. But there is also talk of it helping with immune health, which would be great at this time of year. And I’ve also seen info about it helping with skin clarity. I wonder if it helps with fine lines… aging is fun! Aging is a privilege… I keep reminding myself of that.
But have you ever tried drinking Apple Cider Vinegar?! It’s not that great. And while I can tolerate it, the thing that worries me the most about it is the acidity hitting my teeth. I have caries-prone teeth, which is a fancier way of saying that I get cavities really easily. I can brush and floss my teeth fastidiously, visit my dentist regularly for cleanings, and still get a cavity. My husband can not visit the dentist for years, skip brushing whenever he wants, yet still visit the dentist and they’ll say “All good, keeping doing what you’re doing.” So the benefit of gummies means I don’t get acid all over my teeth, just sugar!
You can Google for the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, but there was a handy cheat sheet in my Goli package that covers some of them and why their gummies might be a better alternative than the straight up vinegar.
So…. I got a bottle of the Goli gummies. And I tried them for the first time and they taste good. They do have a tiny bit more bite than a regular gummy might. I like the flavor and I plan to take them at night for the next 30 days to see if I feel any differences.
They have a holiday deal on the Goli site where you can get one bottle free when you buy 4, which basically makes it work out to $15.20 per bottle instead of the normal $19 per bottle. I am really tempted to purchase it, just to give it a longer term test than one month.
And if you enter the code jillwillrun at checkout, you’ll get an additional 5% off your total. (Full disclosure, I’ll earn a small commission from that.)
If you’ve ever had any success or non-success with apple cider vinegar, feel free to tell me about it in the comments or you can email me! I’m one of those people who wants to believe in all the hippy-dippy alternative treatments out there, but at the same time I believe in science and proof too. But I do think many of our systems in this country (world) are broken and we don’t always let more natural remedies have a chance. (Marijuana, anyone?)
Maybe they should add hemp to Goli… LOL
