Yes, you can find the study and its findings below :
In this trial, 175 individuals who were overweight were randomized to one of three groups –
1500mg daily of ACV
750mg daily of AC
No ACV – i.e. placebo.
The intervention phase lasted 12 weeks. There were significantly BETTER outcomes in both ACV groups compared to the placebo (no ACV) group in weight, waist circumference, and body mass index (BMI) at 12 weeks.
IMPORTANT FINDING: The groups taking a daily dose of ACV had significantly greater weight loss than the no ACV group.
IMPORTANT FINDING: 4 weeks after the intervention was discontinued body weight, BMI and waist circumference returned to baseline (i.e. back to what it was before the intervention). This finding led the researchers to state ‘continuous administration of vinegar is necessary to maintain the positive effects found’.
NOTE: There has been some criticism of this study’s findings in the non-scientific literature regarding the amount of weight loss reported for the ACV group compared to the placebo group.
We point out to the reader that the weight loss was over and above that found in the control group; and, was not explained by differences in dietary intake between the groups.
