The Health Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is inexpensive, readily available and comes
with a host of health and beauty benefits. The list of benefits
is so extensive in fact, that entire books have been written
about the many uses of apple cider vinegar.
It is important to note that there is a very distinct
difference between the clear vinegar you find in your grocery
store and raw, unfiltered and un-distilled apple cider vinegar.
Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar will be cloudy or murky and
have filaments floating in it which is known as “the mother”
which means that the vinegar still contains vitamins, enzymes
Some of the many nutrients that apple cider vinegar contains
are calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and phosphorous. It also
contains pectin which reduces cholesterol, lowers blood pressure
and eases constipation. Potassium improves hair, teeth and
nails, prevents cramps and helps detox the body.
The antioxidants in apple cider vinegar also provide a host of
anti aging and disease fighting benefits. The malic acid helps
remove uric acid from the body which alleviates joint pain and
arthritis. The manganese, magnesium, silicon and calcium helps
to maintain bone mass and prevent osteoporosis.
Users of apple cider vinegar report that it has reduced or
eliminated their allergies, skin conditions and acne, flu,
candida, acid reflux, arthritis, gout and more. Other people
swear that their skin and hair has never looked better since
they started drinking apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar also helps to facilitate weight loss
because it helps break down fat, controls blood sugar levels,
increases energy levels and helps stabilize appetite.
Apple cider vinegar is safe for pregnancy, can help reduce acid
reflux, morning sickness, varicose veins and leg cramps. It is
also an excellent way to obtain additional food based vitamins
and minerals for proper fetal development. Apple cider vinegar
is also believed to assist the body’s blood clotting ability so
taking a vinegar cocktail every day during pregnancy may help to
prevent hemorrhage during childbirth.
Due to the fact that apple cider vinegar has anti bacterial,
anti fungal and anti viral properties, taking a vinegar cocktail
daily may help you from catching colds or flus that are passed
around by improving your immune system and you may also be able
to reduce the severity of the illness by bumping up your daily
apple cider vinegar dose after the onset of symptoms.
There are many ways to take apple cider vinegar. The standard
cocktail is simply one to two tablespoons of raw apple cider
vinegar with one to two tablespoons of raw honey in a glass of
water up to three times daily. Some people also use apple cider
vinegar to rinse their hair, wash their face, add it to their
bath or diluted in enemas or douches. The easiest way to
incorporate apple cider vinegar into your routine is to mix it
with oil in lieu of store bought salad dressings.
If you are looking for a safe, natural, inexpensive way to a
more youthful body, easier weight loss, improved immune system
and healthier blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels
along with improved detoxification, energy and digestion and
healthy skin, hair and joints then why not give a daily ACV
cocktail a try?
