I’ve been hearing about the myriad of benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for awhile now but only recently have I started really paying attention and experimenting with it in my day to day. I have to say I really like the benefits!
Oh, before I get into it, just be sure that your Apple Cider Vinegar is RAW. Your bottle has to contain the ‘mother of the vinegar’ which is what gives the healing properties to ACV. So remember, RAW and “mother of the vinegar”. If it is clear, filtered, processed it loses its healing properties!
Back to the healing properties! Did you know you can use it to make your hair shiny, clear up acne and soothe a sunburn?? I knew the hair thing but not the other two! These are just a few of the benefits. I use it as mouthwash pre-brushing to kill off bacteria and whiten my chompers. This will loosen up any mucus in your sinuses which is awesome!! Because it helps relieve allergies and keeps sinus infections away (which I used to get several times a year!!). I sip it in purified water to keep my body’s pH balanced - this increases my energy levels and protects me from illness - and to keep my waistline trim - especially now that bikini season is upon us!
Some Benefits of ACV?
Aid in weight-loss - studies have shown that the acetic acid, found in raw ACV, reduces abdominal fat, inches around your waist, weight and triglycerides (which contribute to bad cholesterol).
Boosts energy by balancing your body’s pH levels - when your body is too acidic (lower pH levels) it can be more prone to infections and a variety of illnesses and have low energy levels which ACV helps reverse. Raw ACV helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline environment.
Useful in Detoxification - Raw ACV helps break up mucus throughout the body (which can help with allergies, sinus congestion and even sinus infections), helps stimulate cardiovascular circulation and detoxify your liver.
Relieving arthritis pain - the potassium in ACV works to prevent calcium build-up in your joints, which has been linked to joint stiffness.
Improve bone health - ACV is rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals which are for maintaining your bones.
Whiter Teeth - ACV helps remove stains, kills bacteria in your mouth and along the gumline. Just gargle with it in the morning and then brush your teeth as usual.
