Apple cider vinegar helps promote fullness in part due to delayed stomach emptying. This may naturally lead to lower calorie intake. However, this could worsen gastoparesis for some.
Most of the studies about ACV have been done on animals—or in really small groups of people, explains Eliza Whetzel-Savage, R.D., a registered dietitian at Middleburg Nutrition in New York City. “There is one study of people that showed ACV may slow digestion of food and liquid, which may help stabilize blood sugar,” she says. “But overall, there is not much science to support many of the claims.”
‘There is a small amount of evidence that apple cider vinegar aids weight loss as an appetite suppressant,’ says Medlin. ‘Studies suggest that it may alter the way that we absorb carbohydrates. There is also some limited evidence that it may slow down how quickly your stomach empties, which might help to keep you full for longer.’

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which has been found to reduce absorption of starches and slow digestion, which can lead to a sensation of a full stomach. Despite these effects, in one study, the reduction in morning blood sugar levels after drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar the night before over several days was quite small. Studies on weight loss and appetite suppression have mostly involved mice, which is a long way from proving effectiveness in people.
The role of acetic acid on glucose uptake and blood flow rates in the skeletal muscle in humans with impaired glucose tolerance.
In individuals with IGT, vinegar ingestion before a mixed meal results in an enhancement of muscle blood flow, an improvement of glucose uptake by the forearm muscle and a reduction of postprandial hyperinsulinaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia. From this point of view, vinegar may be considered beneficial for improving insulin resistance and metabolic abnormalities in the atherogenic prediabetic state.
