I remember my mum introducing me to apple cider vinegar, whenever I wasn’t feeling the best, sore throat and upset tummy, she would mix a tablespoon in warm water with slices of fresh ginger and honey to sip on in the morning before breakfast. It always helped.
I like to buy an organic apple cider vinegar which is raw and contains ‘the mother’ – the gunky looking stuff at the bottom of the bottle, it’s the gut friendly bacteria which helps aid with digestion - one for those who suffer with heartburn!, fight off unwanted bacteria such as Candida and helps promote alkalinity. A healthy inside will help promote a healthy outside – beautiful hair and skin, yes please!
Apple cider vinegar can also help curb sugar cravings its acetic acid content is shown to slow down the digestion of carbohydrates, which in turn regulates blood sugar levels. The acetic acid content is also shown in studies to reduce the accumulation of body fat and liver lipids. Hello weight loss and most importantly, it’s the perfect food supplement to aid in diabetes.
Health reasons I would recommend including Apple Cider Vinegar to your diet:
- Healthy inner ecology
- Stronger immune system
- Skin conditions
- Sore Throat
- Aid in digestion issues (etc. Heartburn, bloating, excess gas)
- Sugar cravings
- Weight loss
- Leg cramps
Some people might find it too acidic to drink, I personally love the taste! I also use Apple Cider Vinegar in salad dressings. You can have it by itself in warm water, or mix it with some fresh ginger, mint, and fresh lemon juice to make a little cocktail! it's so good for you, enjoy! xo
