WELLPATH PURE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR GUMMIES

WellPath has launched its Pure Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies, which contain 500 mg of raw apple cider vinegar. The gummies provide all the benefits of apple cider vinegar without the taste of the traditional liquid form. They aim to support positive effects on blood sugar, the cardiovascular system, and metabolism, and offer antioxidant properties. Another benefit of apple cider vinegar is that it supports weight loss, thanks to acetic acid, which activates metabolism and encourages the use of fat for energy. The gummies are gelatin and gluten free and contain non—genetically modified organisms. Currently sold on Amazon, the gummies will soon be available on the WellPath website.
