Why You Should Have Apple Cider Vinegar EVERYDAY: Health and Beauty Benefits

I have been struggling with increasing the alkalinity level in my body. Taking only two table spoons of raw Apple Cider Vingear a day together with changing my diet (cutting out processed sugars and products high in wheat content, high carbohydrates and starches, and instead eating high amounts of super foods, vegetables and proteins) has really made a HUGE difference in how I feel and LOOK!
An Apple Day, keeps the doctor way! With Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
you will forget what hospitals look like!

I must admit that I have known about  Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), but have only incorporated it into my daily diet recently – who would have ever guessed that this natural and fermented liquid could be useful for a myriad of health issues?
Over the years, as I have learned more about this natural health aid, I have been amazed at some of the conditions it can be beneficial for. In fact, it is often touted as Mother Nature’s perfect food and is wonderful in helping to maintain the body’s vital acid-alkaline balance. I am referring to the raw, organic, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar that still has the “mother” floating in it, such as  Bragg Organic  Apple Cider Vinegar.
Only raw organic apple cider vinegar has the actual “mother of vinegar” that makes this vinegar so beneficial to our health. The “mother” is made up living nutrients and bacteria that you can actually see as they settle in the bottom of the bottle like sediment. The “mother” is believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
What is in ACV to support it’s reputation for health benefits?
Nutrients Available is ACV:

  • Malic Acid – helps in fighting fungal and bacterial infections
  • Beta-Carotene-helps in countering damage caused by free-radicals
  • Calcium – helps create strong bones and teeth.
  • Potassium – helps to prevent brittle teeth and nails, hair loss and sinusitis.
  • Pectin – the fiber that helps to regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
  • Acetic Acid – helps to slow down the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
  • Ash – gives ACV its alkaline property which aids your body in maintaining proper pH levels for a healthy alkaline state.
  • Rich in Enzymes & Potassium
  • Supports a healthy Immune System
  • Helps to Eliminate Heartburn naturally
  • Helps to Improve Bowel Irregularity
  • Helps to control weight by breaking down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them
  • Helps with Joint Pain and Stiffness
  • Helps to Clear Up Skin Conditions, boosts radiance
  • Promotes Digestion & ph Balance
  • Helps soothe Dry Throats and Reduce Sinus Infections
  • Helps Balance High Cholesterol
  • Helps to Prevent Against Food Poisoning
  • Helps remove Body Sludge Toxins
  • Helps to Improve Metabolism which encourages Weight Loss
  • Can help to reduce Bad Breath
  • Can be a natural remedy for Diarrhea
  • Potentially helps to reduce the levels of glucose in the blood, thus controlling blood sugar levels
  • Can help alleviate Menstrual Pains
  • Can help reduce appearance of Cellulite
Here are 6 ways to EASILY add it to your diet (unless you are currently eating a diet that eliminates Vinegars):
How to Add ACV into your Diet:
  1. Use it in your Salad Dressings
  2. Add a splash to your sauces once they are done cooking (will brighten the flavors)
  3. Add a splash to your soups once they are done cooking (will brighten the flavors)
  4. Add it to Roasted Vegetables right before eating
  5. Use it in your Meat Marinades
  6. Make a sipping drink from it (Recipe Below)

  • 2 – 3 teaspoons Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 16 ounces Filtered and Purified Water
  • Raw Local Honey (to suit your taste)
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (optional, but a nice flavor enhancer and stirring medium to keep the “mother” suspended)
1.  Mix ingredients together in a glass container and sip throughout the day. It is preferable to sip throughout the day, rather than drinking all at once, to help maintain a balanced alkalized state in your body. Always stir before drinking as the “mother” will settle.
Note: You can just barely warm this concoction on the stove if you would like to sip it warm, but do NOT allow to boil or even simmer. The point is to keep the Apple Cider Vinegar in the raw state.
