Is Willy’s ACV paleo friendly?
What is the paleo diet?
The paleo diet, also known as the caveman diet, consists of eating foods that would have been consumer during the Paleolithic era dating back approximately 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago.
This diet is typically made up of lean meats, fruits, fish, vegetables and nuts. All of those foods having been hunted or gathered during the Paelolithic era. Foods such as dairy, grains and legumes are not included in this diet as these are what would have been farmed post 10,000 years ago.
People tend to go on this diet as they believe it’s best matched with the human body and its digestive system. As early human life consumed what’s included in the paleo diet, it makes most sense that this diet is what’s best for the human body.
You may choose to follow the paleo diet:
– To maintain a healthy weight
– To lose weight
– Out of ease for meal planning
Many studies have shown that the paleo diet improves glucose tolerance, controls blood pressure and results in better management of the appetite.
One item that is allowed in this diet is apple cider vinegar. Known for its great health benefits, apple cider vinegar is a perfect taste enhancer to be including in your meals.
What is apple cider vinegar?
ACV is the product of fermented apples. The sugar from apples goes through a process called fermentation, which then turns the apples into acetic acid. Acetic acid is known to be the main active ingredient behind the health benefits that ACV has.
