About a month ago, I bought a bottle of apple cider vinegar after reading an article touting it's long list of health benefits. You know how sometimes after you see something interesting on the web, you then see it everywhere? That's how it is with ACV for me.
I haven't been the most diligent about including it into my every day diet because of travel and such, but today I vow to be more. It's going to be my thang! This is why...apple cider vinegar - organic raw unfiltered ACV with 'Mother' (look for Braggs, the cloudy one) - is an undeniable fantastic supplement and appears to be a superfood!!
ACV is made by first exposing crushed apples to yeast then adding bacteria to help with fermentation. It contains acetic acid (a promoter of "good" and killer of "bad" bacteria in the gut), probiotics, polyphenols, potassium, magnesium, along with a bunch of beneficial enzymes. Apple cider vinegar has been used as a remedy since the days of Hippocrates. The ancient Greek doctor treated wounds with it. When mixed with water and consumed once or twice per day (1 or 2 tablespoons per glass), this elixir can help with the following...
helps control blood sugar
aids in weight loss
lowers blood pressure
cuts down on nighttime leg cramps
banishes bad breath
anti fungal and antibacterial benefits
could lower cholesterol
clears up a stuffy nose
gets rid of dandruff
Sold! I'm sold. I'm doing it and will let you know in a month if I notices any changes in my bod. Hopefully, you'll join me with this easy challenge! It tastes okay. It's definitely doable, not delicious, but doable. I add it to luke warm water and then just down it. That's the easiest and quickest way for me to get it in. Let me know if you're going to join me!! Go, Team SoulShine! :)
