The Amazing Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
This is one our favorite lifestyle strategies to share with people. Pure genius!!
What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar is a natural and inexpensive antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral agent. It is also known for its ability to stimulate both your immune system and your metabolism.
Medical research is proving this little strategy to be of big benefit. Apple cider vinegar is known to support weight loss, lower blood pressure, improve diabetes, eliminate acid reflux and heartburn, enhance detoxification, and that’s just to name a few of the many benefits.
The benefits come from the healing compounds found in apple cider vinegar. The most important to consider include: potassium, magnesium, acetic acid, enzymes and probiotics.
Acetic acid is known for its ability to kill ‘bad, unfriendly’ bacteria while promoting ‘good, friendly’ bacteria. This property benefits the entire body, especially the skin, digestion and immune system.
NOTE: we are referring to the natural, raw, unfiltered version of apple cider vinegar which contains the ‘mother’ strand of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria.
Top 6 Reasons To Use The Apple Cider Vinegar Strategy
#1 Speed Up Metabolism and Weight Loss
A study published in the Journal of Diabetes Care found that consuming apple cider vinegar could promote weight loss. It stimulates metabolic rate, reduces the urge for over eating, and alkalizes the body. For these reasons and more we consider it a staple strategy to being a “fat burning machine”.
#2 Detox Your Body
Apple cider vinegar is known as a liver and lymphatic system tonic capable of helping your body detox on a regular basis. It stimulates gut motility (in a friendly way), stimulates drainage of the lymphatic system (your body’s sewer system) and improves overall body chemistry by promoting a more alkaline, less acidic environment.
#3 Kills Candida (yeast) and Boosts Probiotics
It is an uncommon fact that people unknowingly suffer from candida/yeast overgrowth as a result of their diet. The complications of which can include fatigue and energy loss, bad breath, frequent urinary tract infections and a plethora of digestive issues. Apple cider vinegar has anti-candida and probiotic properties to help you overcome or prevent this health obstacle.
#4 Regulates the Body’s pH Levels
Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which may be acidic in nature, but actually produces a net alkaline affect on the body. It may appear counterintuitive that something with the word ‘acid’ in the name could promote anti-acidic body chemistry, but ti’s true. And, as research suggests, chronic diseases love an acidic body chemistry. So, the more alkaline you can become, the better. We often refer to our apple cider vinegar strategy as a piece of our overall anti-cancer strategy.
#5 Blood Pressure Regulation
A study performed in 2009 showed that consuming apple cider vinegar of r12 weeks significantly lowered blood pressure. Already have low blood pressure? Well, we believe apple cider vinegar has a blood pressure relating effect, for both high and low blood pressure scenarios. High or low, this strategy is worth trying.
#6 Blood Sugar Regulation
Medical research has shown that the acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar helps regulate blood sugar and conditions associated with diabetes. Diabetes or not, blood sugar regulation is important to maximizing your digestion, metabolism, health and performance.
