Apple Cider Vinegar Health Benefits

Apple Cider Vinegar Health BenefitsNatural and useful, apple cider vinegar has some really great health benefits that may surprise you. In fact, it’s a home remedy of magnificent proportions for many health conditions, big and small. If you reserve apple cider vinegar solely for salad dressings and marinades, check out these super health benefits and consider other ways you can incorporate it into your health routine:

Weight Loss

A study out of Japan found that people who regularly drank apple cider vinegar lost weight, lowered their BMI, and lowered their triglycerides level. Although the weight loss was subtle, researchers believe apple cider vinegar may trigger certain genes that help break down fat and may reduce the digestion of starches from entering the bloodstream.

Energy

Often lactic acid causes a lull in your energy. Apple cider vinegar is packed with potassium as well as healthful enzymes that combat fatigue.

Sore Throat

The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar helps fight off the germs that cause a sore throat. Gargle with warm water and apple cider vinegar several times daily as soon as you feel a sore throat coming on.

Blood Sugar Stabilization

Several studies show that apple cider vinegar may be useful in stabilizing blood sugar levels, especially in diabetics and prediabetes. It works by slowing the digestion of starches that can cause blood glucose to spike. This was the case whether apple cider vinegar was taken directly with a high-sugar meal or not.

Skin

With natural anti-bacterial properties, apple cider vinegar makes a fantastic pure astringent and toner. Brush it across your face before moisturizing to reduce acne and to perk up your skin cells.

Digestion

Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is full of probiotics that can populate your gut with healthy bacteria. This can help ease digestion to relieve pain from common conditions such as indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea, as well as more serious diseases like ulcerative colitis.

Teeth and Breath

Stains and odor don’t stand a chance against apple cider vinegar. Gargle with it and swish it around your mouth before brushing your teeth daily.

Hiccups

The sour taste of apple cider vinegar stops throat spasms that cause hiccups. A little over-stimulation of the nerves is all it takes.

Apple cider vinegar has powerful health benefits. Do be cautious not to take too much in a day and dilute it with water or juice to prevent damage to tooth enamel and your esophagus.
