A Few Facts about Pomegranate Vinegar Weight Loss
Dr. Fuhrman’s Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar is being touted (by Dr. Oz and others) as a “weight loss blocker.” This may sound like shoddy science but Amylase inhibitors are real and they are real starch blockers. Basically they stop starches from being digested when in the digestive tract. These carbohydrates are “blocked” and pass through the intestine without being absorbed. We are always hesitant to recommend a certain product, especially if it is artificial. Pomegranate vinegar weight loss products all seem to be natural. At the worst we see it as a delicious, low calorie, salad dressing.
If there were a perfect fat or carb blocker we would all be at our target weight. Many artificial or pill-form starch blockers can be dangerous. There are even prescription drugs like Precose & Glyset that work this same way. They aren’t used for weight management but are used to help diabetics control their blood sugar. And even with these powerful drugs, only some of these carbohydrates are going to be blocked even on a good day. The body has had too much programming from our ancestors to waste calories. For the majority of human existence there hasn’t been enough calories to go around. Obesity and the simply being a little pudgy is a recent phenomenon.
The Basics of Pomegranate Vinegar Weight Loss
There is a natural fat blocker that is found in many foods. It is called fiber! Leafy vegetables, beans, whole grains, and fruits all have lots of fiber. This fiber gives you the sensation of being full and your body can’t digest fiber. It simply passes through your system.
If fiber is too slow and or too boring for you there are other natural supplements that show some promise on being fat blockers. Pomegranate vinegar weight loss products claim that they can burn fat reserves and block the formation of new fat cells by converting food into increased energy. The science on this claim doesn’t look like it has been completely verified but there many online that have had a good experience.
However, drinking 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar every day has been studied by Japanese researchers. They found that weight loss with use occurred with the fat percentage of the participants’ body decreased more than those on a placebo. One study doesn’t necessarily prove that this is rock-hard science. But vinegar is broadly viewed as healthy with many health benefits. Pomegranate vinegar weight loss products are basically this.
Just because Dr. Oz thinks it is great doesn’t necessarily mean that pomegranate vinegar weight loss will work for you. I would love to see it studied further. But I guess I could say that about the thousands of supplements and weight loss products out there.
There are even capsules that you can take that get the vinegar in your system. Having a spoonful of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar a day would certainly be the cheap way to go. But drinking vinegar is a lot harder than it sounds.
