Let's bridge the gap between health and humanity
We believe in the power of the body's ability to heal the individual, and that medication and surgery should be a last resort. The products and services we provide are designed to give the body what it needs to thrive, heal and repair naturally. We do this by integrating natural health and objective, research-backed education to provide people with everything their bodies need to operate at maximum potential.
The most important step in achieving our mission is to deliver proper health and nutritional education to the public. Unfortunately, public school health education is decades behind, and medical schooling tends to avoid nutritional education in order to test the theories behind the efficacy of pharmaceuticals in isolation.
We choose our products carefully and research them thoroughly before releasing to the public. If you choose not to start your health journey with UMZU, we still encourage you to browse the educational pieces below. The more you understand about your body, the better you will be able to take control of your own health.
The Problem with Weight Control
Did you know that 69% of Americans are either overweight or obese?
Here's the problem.
Education around what causes weight gain is sparse
Marketing around weight loss focuses too much on "hacks" and "tricks"
Being overweight causes damage in gut and hormonal health
Poor gut and hormonal health will then make it more difficult to lose weight, creating a negative feedback loop
You must pay attention to gut and hormonal health to get out of this negative feedback loop
There is no replacement for a healthy diet and lifestyle when trying to lose weight
What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple Cider Vinegar is fermented apple juice.
To make apple cider vinegar, apples are crushed and exposed to yeast, turning the natural sugars in the fruit into alcohol - very similar to apple cider.
The major difference is a double fermentation process - once to turn apple juice into cider and a second to turn cider into vinegar.
There are a few reasons why drinking Apple Cider Vinegar would create weight loss...
How the Nutrients in Apple Cider Vinegar Support Weight Control
In order to become lean and healthy, you need to correct micronutrient deficiencies. Apple Cider Vinegar's nutritional composition makes it special, containing:
only 3 calories per tablespoon
How the Satiety Caused by Apple Cider Vinegar Supports Weight Control
There are several studies that have concluded using ACV for weight loss actually works - even without dietary changes.
So what is really happening?
Most people overeat simply because they don't feel full. Apple cider vinegar increases satiety (your feeling of fullness) so you are not as hungry.
Of course, a healthy lifestyle is required to lose fat correctly, but increasing satiety and eating less will certainly help.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Supports Healthy Blood Sugar
Apple cider vinegar has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels when fasting (not eating).
By reducing blood sugar levels and reducing spikes when eating, you may increase your insulin sensitivity, which will aid in weight loss and body composition.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Supports Digestion
There are a couple of ways that ACV helps with digestion...
First, ACV is a natural laxative and can help aid weight loss simply by expelling waste from the colon.
Second, zuACV includes prebiotics - the food for gut flora. By keeping your probiotic bacteria well-fed, you will help improve digestion and keep expelling waste from the intestines.
Why Choose zuACV over Traditional Apple Cider Vinegar?
zuACV is a better alternative to drinking straight Apple Cider Vinegar you can find at the store for two reasons:
Due to the second fermentation process, Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely bitter to the taste.
Some people cannot even get themselves to swallow straight Apple Cider Vinegar due to the intense bitterness.
zuACV is a powdered and capsuled ACV with zero taste, meaning you can get all of the benefits with none of the downside.
zuACV also contains additional prebiotics that magnify the impact of Apple Cider Vinegar.
Prebiotics act as "food" for your probiotic bacteria.
Digestion and weight loss are reliant on the health of your gut flora. If you have digestive issues, consider supplementing with a probiotic to introduce "good" bacteria into your gut.
The prebiotics in zuACV will then feed and protect that probiotic bacteria to keep your gut flora healthy and fluorishing.
By supplementing with zuACV just once per day, you will be filling your gut with the nutrients it needs to function. Try zuACV today and see the results in your weight control, immune system and digestive system as your body thanks you for improving gut health.
In order to operate a healthy gut, you must have a strong concentration of healthy "good" bacteria in your system.
zuACV + Prebiotics is a blend of apple cider vinegar and nourishing prebiotics meant to feed your gut's good bacteria to keep them alive and well.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Powder
Apple Cider Vinegar is one of nature’s most effective ways for adding “good bacteria” to your gut while feeding it with the natural prebiotics found in the ACV.
This bacteria can enhance the health of your digestive system and deliver a host of added gut bacteria benefits like a strong immune system and an improved ability to digest and absorb nutrients. It has also been shown to increase weight loss, even when calories are controlled for.†
This 2005 report published in the British Journal of Nutrition stated that inulin and other fructan fibers can help improve gut health. †
This has very incredible health benefits: improved immune functioning, a healthy heart and circulatory system, better weight management, & improved nutrient absorption. †
Fermentation of inulin fibers in the large bowel stimulates good bacteria to grow, which causes significant positive changes in the composition of the gut microflora and significant decreases in the amount of harmful bacterial species living in the body that trigger inflammation. †
Organic Chicory Root Extract
Chicory root contains oligosaccharide-enriched inulin, which is a prebiotic.
The inulin in chicory root is also known as a prebiotic fiber because it’s highly fermentable by the friendly bacteria in the gut. One major study revealed that volunteers consuming chicory root reported increased satisfaction about digestion and reduced defecation difficulties during the supplementation.†
Chromium has been associated with a reduction in the risk for obesity, less weight gain and may positively affect food intake.
The Biomedical Research Center at the Louisiana State University found that chromium supplements effectively helped modulate food intake in healthy, overweight, adult women who reported craving carbohydrates. Regulating overeating is very helpful in controlling bad bacterial overgrowth in the gut.†

How is Apple Cider Vinegar made?
Many foods, including grapes, oranges, maple syrup, honey and even beer can be used to produce vinegars; all of which have their own unique flavors. Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process to convert apple juice into vinegar. First, the apples must be crushed and juiced. Then, bacteria and yeast convert the sugars in the juice to alcohol. This is called “fermentation”, and is the same process for making wine or beer. Lastly, a second fermentation occurs when the alcohol is converted into vinegar by “acetobacter” bacteria which creates acetic acid. The compounds in apples give apple cider vinegar a sweet and crisp flavor, and the acetic acid provides sour notes.
Why should I take ACV?
Apple cider vinegar has a laundry list of benefits to its name. Weight loss (by increasing your satiety) (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9630389) and diabetes management (by lowering blood sugar levels) (http://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/27/1/281.long) are among the most studied. Vinegar can also fight infections, both bacterial and viral. Overall, it's is one of the most holistic supplements you can include in your diet.
Who shouldn't take ACV?
Folks who have been diagnosed with gastroparesis should consult their doctor before taking an apple cider vinegar supplement. ACV can delay stomach emptying. For people with an already slow digestive tract, ACV can slow digestive motility even further.
While apple cider vinegar has been shown to lower and regulate blood sugar levels, diabetics who are already taking blood sugar medication should consult their doctor before adding a vinegar tablet into their regimen.
Is ACV safe to take while pregnant?
While there are no studies that explicitly warn against the use of apple cider vinegar during pregnancy, there is also an insufficient amount of evidence to recommend it. For that reason, pregnant women should consult their doctor before taking apple cider vinegar tablets. However it’s suggested that ACV can promote a healthy pregnancy by providing an antimicrobial environment for the fetus. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5788933/) It may also ease acid reflux in pregnant mothers.
Is ACV safe to take while breastfeeding?
ACV may help aid digestion, ease bloating, and support weight loss.* However, while there are no studies that explicitly warn against the use of apple cider vinegar during breastfeeding, there is also an insufficient amount of evidence to recommend it. For that reason, breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking apple cider vinegar tablets.
Is ACV safe for kids?
We always recommend that you consult your doctor before making ACV a staple in your child’s routine. However, apple cider vinegar can offer a wealth of benefits for kiddos. Primarily, ACV can help boost the immune system by fighting off infections, specifically yeast infections, and helping to fend off colds. ACV can also provide a boost of essential minerals, helping to supplement your little one’s diet.
Is there a benefit to taking capsules over drinking ACV?
Apple cider vinegar is incredibly acidic and, when taken in its liquid form, can decay the enamel on your teeth. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16167607) At its most concentrated liquid form (and if misused or overused), apple cider vinegar could burn the inside of your mouth and esophagus. The potency of ACV is what makes it so effective as a supplement. However, it can be quite damaging to drink it straight. Taking your apple cider vinegar in a tablet form may help reduce the risk of experiencing these side effects.
Are there any side effects?
Because apple cider vinegar may slow the emptying of your stomach (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2245945/), some people can experience bloating, gas, or constipation. Make sure to consult your doctor before making apple cider vinegar a part of your daily routine.

Trying this product has changed my health for the better. Drinking apple cider vinegar by itself can be a challenge, although you need it. But ACV works wonders as a substitute, no smell, no sour taste, stomach improvement. Plus with added prebiotics helps feed my good bacteria. Highly recommend to those who suffer from inflammation.
For a three decades I've tried to loose body fat and obviously weight, used everything on the market and I mean EVERYTHING! And was useless, I start to use UMZU zuACV and now I feel great loosing body fat and then gradually some weight that body fat that make you fill like a jelly that's what I talking about, i will continue using it till the end of times. THANK YOU UMZU !
I have taken other probiotics and never felt that they help me with IBS issues. I been taken ZuACV for over a month now and I have noticed that I rarely get bloated. I usually struggling with bloating daily and now it’s been rare. I can’t say I have lost weight with this product but I am happy that I don’t suffer from bloating on a daily. This is a win for me
