The incredible health benefits of apple cider vinegar could change your life

Apple cider vinegar can aid weight loss

Apple cider vinegar has the ability to delay gastric emptying time. This means that your body will feel fuller for longer and you will not get hungry as quickly. This is a great craving killer that can also improve nutrient absorption for people who are low in specific digestive enzymes and beneficial bacteria

It may protect against cardiovascular disease

In recent studies, apple cider vinegar has shown to have the ability to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), high cholesterol and hypertension, without any side effects.

Apple cider vinegar is great for diabetics

Apple cider vinegar may slow the release of sugar (from foods) into the bloodstream and avoid dangerous spikes in blood glucose. This lowers your body’s need for insulin and takes the stress off of your pancreas. When your blood sugar is balanced, you are less likely to crave carbohydrates.

It helps out your liver

Apple cider vinegar is composed mostly of acetic acid, and acetic acid has been shown to have the ability to protect our liver cells; this research is studying its effect on liver tumours. These trials are still taking place in animal studies, but are showing promising results with minimal side effects.

Here is an AVC recipe that easy to make and use daily. Generally, this is best to take in the mooring before you eat.

Mix a teaspoon (or a tablespoon, to your taste) of apple cider vinegar with a cup of warm water and a teaspoon of organic honey (raw, unfiltered) first thing in the morning.

  1. Stir well and allow it a few minutes to combine.
  2. Drink slowly as you would drink a cup of tea.
  3. After finishing your ‘vinegar tea’, drink 24 ounces of water slowly over the course of 30 minutes.
  4. After this, have breakfast and resume your normal daily activities.
  5. Note: You can do this every day, or at least 4-5 times a week before meals to increase digestion.

Apple cider vinegar is a wonderful test to see if a person needs more stomach acid or has an ulcer. Take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach. If you get a burning sensation in the stomach, you may have a breach in your stomach lining and should consult your doctor for an H pylori ulcer test. If no burning sensation and you find your digestion improved (eg. less heartburn) and you generally feel better, you need more acid in your stomach, in which case ACV can help you.
