Our ACV gummies are a great alternative - they are also 100% vegan free and are also fortified with Vitamin C, Chromium, pomegranate and free from artificial sweeteners or flavouring!

For most, ACV is taken diluted on an empty stomach in the morning. Some studies have suggested that it is taken 30 minutes before a meal as can make you feel fuller for longer. There has also been some research taken to see if taking ACV diluted before bed can help reduce acid reflux whilst sleeping. You’ll be pleased to know that our gummies can be taken in the morning or at night!
Can I take ACV if I am fasting?
Yes, you can take ACV in the morning if you are fasting but only if you are drinking this diluted with water. You aren’t meant to take ACV in gummy or capsule form if you are fasting.
Can I have ACV if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes you can still take ACV whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. Although if you are suffering with nausea whilst pregnant, it may not be wise to take it in the morning. If you have any questions or concerns relating to this – we recommend you speak to your midwife or a medical expert before doing so.
