Do Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies Break a Fast?

Gummy vitamins in general are going to contain some type of sugar. This is what makes those gummy vitamins so easy to munch on... they have sugar! With Intermittent Fasting, the goal is to not spike the storing hormone insulin during your fast. Otherwise this will shift the body out of fat burning and break your fast. Sugar is one of the biggest stimulators of the storing hormone insulin. This means any gummy vitamin, including apple cider vinegar gummies, will break a fast.

Do Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies Work?

There's an important distinction between apple cider vinegar and apple cider vinegar gummies. Apple cider vinegar (in the liquid form, diluted in water) has been found in multiple studies to improve fasting blood glucose and hbA1c levels.(1) However, this is specific to the liquid form of apple cider vinegar, not the gummies. To my knowledge, there have not been any studies done on apple cider vinegar gummies to see if they have the same effect. Considering most apple cider vinegar gummies contain additional ingredients (like sugar), it's highly likely the effect is minimal, if existent at all. And with the cost of apple cider vinegar gummies going as high as $20 a bottle, that's quite a price tag for something that might not even work.


If you're looking to get the studied benefits of apple cider vinegar, you're better off going for the real deal. This is also conveniently a less expensive option. Usually a large bottle of high quality apple cider vinegar (like THIS one on Amazon) comes in at around $6 a bottle. Diluting 1-2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar in 12 oz. water will get you much closer to the conditions in which apple cider vinegar was actually studied to have benefits.
