Paleovalley ACV Complex

Healthy blood sugar levels are extremely critical if you want to have great mental clarity, a healthy mood, and all-day energy. If you want to be a good fat burner, you’ve got to keep your blood sugar stable and you’ve got to keep your insulin levels balanced. 

Research shows that if you take one to two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a meal, it lowers the glycemic impact of the meal (the blood sugar elevation) by up to 40% and it lowers the amount of insulin your body produces. This means you feel better as you have more energy after your meal, and you can burn fat more effectively. 

Paleovalley’s Apple Cider Vinegar Complex is a great way to take apple cider vinegar without the nasty vinegar taste in your mouth. It has the recommended dosage of 1000mgs of ACV and added turmeric, ginger, lemon, and cinnamon – all enhancing digestive juice production so you can digest your meal more effectively and bring down inflammation in your body.
