What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
It is an age-old ingredient for healthy living. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is made from crushed apples that are then distilled and fermented. Try and use an apple cider vinegar that is organic and cloudy. (unpasteurised or raw).
What I have discovered is pretty cool… here are some of the wide- ranging benefits;
☛ Lowers blood sugar levels
☛ Helps an upset stomach
☛ Sooths a sore throat
☛ Helps clear a stuffy nose
☛ Use as a natural toner to help clear skin
☛ Boosts energies
☛ Helps with leg cramps
☛ Increases good gut bacteria
Most Importantly- How Does It Help with Weight Loss?
Ok, so there is no quick fix and we all know we have to eat well, avoid unhealthy fats and processed foods and exercise.
The acetic acid and enzymes in apple cider vinegar increases your metabolism and makes you burn fat faster. It also does all these other amazing things;
Acts as an appetite suppressor
Apple cider vinegar makes you eat less by producing a feeling of satiety.
Controls blood sugar levels
Apple cider vinegar prevents uncontrollable sugar spikes and crashes that make you want to cheat between meals. When your blood sugar is stable, it is easier to stick to your diet plan and eat only when your body needs it.
How Much to Have
Don’t drink it straight, always dilute with water as it has been known to wear away tooth enamel, and damage the oesophagus. Some people recommend drinking it with a straw. Always rinse your mouth afterwards with water or brush your teeth.
One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water before each meal is often recommended as an effective dosage for daily detoxification and weight loss.
Ok, so it doesn’t taste like apples, is pretty sour and it takes a bit of getting used to. But, I am only on day 4 and will definitely keep it going for a few months and report back on the progress.
Bonus… you can use it to make a great dressing for salads when combined with lemon juice, garlic and black pepper.
Have you tried this before? Do you use apple cider vinegar? Have you even heard of it?
