Apple Cider Vinegar

I just had a glass of apple cider vinegar in warm water. It does not taste swell, but honestly it wasn’t so bad that I can’t ever have it again. If you search on the Internet, your research will throw up a multitude of of benefits of apple cider vinegar ranging from acting as a deodorant to cleaning weeds. ACV however, has wonderful healing properties on your body and has been used as medicine for thousands of years.

ACV acts as a detoxifying agent and helps flush your liver of toxins. It helps reduce the build up of fats in your body because it contains acetic acid which break down the fat in your body. This is also beneficial for people who have high blood sugar. ACV helps remove mucus in your body which is beneficial to the clearing of your lymph nodes. It has also been shown to lower bad cholesterol in laboratory conditions. Since it has the ability to break down mucus it is also wonderful for people who have a sinus or blocked nasal passage. Finally, among its many wonderful benefits it can boost your energy because of the minerals in it. It does not contain calories with only 2-3 calories per table spoon.

ACV can be used in your food in various ways. You can have one to two table spoons of it with warm water. You can mix it in your salad or veggies and some people have even had it raw though it does taste bitter. Since it is acidic, its best to have it no more than twice a day perhaps when you get up and before you sleep. It can hurt the enamel in your teeth and so brushing your teeth after you have it is best. As always, organic raw ACV is best for you. Depending on your health, its always best to speak to a doctor before you start taking this regularly for any contra-indications though it has been used for eternity and does not have any known reactions.

    How about trying it as a shot with ginger and honey. Doesn’t taste as bad .

      Thank you, that is a good idea. Any negative to having honey?

    I haven’t come across any negatives so far regarding honey. Off course, moderation is advised in anything. So don’t overdo it.
