12 Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar-ACV

There are many more than 12 health benefits to Apple Cider Vinegar, but today we will talk about 12 of them. ACV is one of the greatest aids to health and long life. It contains powerful enzymes, minerals and trace elements. It is loaded with Potassium. When there is a deficiency of potassium there is a slow regeneration of body cells. When purchasing ACV, always make sure to buy it unfiltered and unpasteurized with ‘the mother’ intact. The mother contains all of the health benefits. So, let’s get started!

 

1.     Improves Digestion: Drinking 1 Tablespoon of ACV in water 15 minutes before a meal will stimulate digestive juices to help in breaking down of your food. It is also cholesterol lowering, and fat burning.
2.     Heartburn, Intestinal Problems and Constipation: Regular use of diluted ACV can help correct low stomach acid conditions that lead to heartburn. Apple pectin found in ‘the mother’ soothes the entire gastrointestinal tract, helping to prevent and relieve stomach cramps, bloating and gas. It also can stimulate peristalsis to help with constipation.
3.     Prevent Candida and Normalize Intestinal Bacteria: ACV is full of acetic acid and malic acid, which have antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. These acids help control the spread of candida fungus in the intestines.
4.     Strengthens The Immune System: Taking ACV on a daily basis improves conditions for the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, thus improving overall immunity. ACV also benefits the lymphatic system by cleansing lymph nodes and breaking up mucus in the body. Over time this can relieve sinus congestion, reduce colds and alleviate allergies.
5.     Regulate Blood Sugar and Aids in Diabetes: ACV contains acetic acid which slows down the digestion of simple carbohydrates. This helps to regulate blood sugar levels. There have been several studies on this subject and ACV that have shown it improves insulin sensitivity and insulin resistant subjects.
6.     High Blood Pressure: Some studies have shown that by regularly taking ACV, it increases nitric oxide production which helps relax blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure.
7.     Relieving Headaches: A headache is Nature’s great warning signal. Whether it is stress, emotional, or a migraine the malic acid contained in ACV can aid in relief from headaches. In a small pan put equal parts of ACV and water; place on the stove allowing the mixture boil slowly. When the fumes begin to raise from the pan, put a towel over your head and lean the head over until the fumes are comfortably strong. Now take deep breaths of the ACV and water mix. Inhale them for at least 80 breaths. Within 35-40 minutes many people have reported great relief.
8.     Weight Loss: ACV contains acetic acid which has been proven in studies to prevent the accumulation of body fat and liver lipids. The pectin it contains is also thought to slightly reduce your body’s ability to absorb fat. 1 tablespoon in a large glass of water before each meal is the recommended dose.
9.     Bad Breath: The natural acids in ACV can reduce the bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath. To use ACV for halitosis, make it a little stronger. Put 1 tablespoon to 1/3 cup of water and gargle it for 20 seconds.
10.  Fighting Arthritis: Hard stony deposits fill up and cement the joints. Other stony deposits enlarge and cripple the joints. Crippling and painful arthritis results. The stony deposits can be fought with ACV. On rising have a 6 oz. glass of tomato juice and add ½ teaspoonful of ACV. Drink this and follow this immediately by eating a whole raw apple. At each meal put 1 Tablespoon of ACV on a raw salad.
11.  Leg Cramps and Restless Leg Syndrome: Sipping on an ACV drink increases low potassium levels in the body and helps relieve leg cramps and restless leg syndrome.
12.  Stamina and Energy: Although ACV is acidic outside the body; inside the body it is alkaline. It has been reported that when drinking it daily it can improve energy and give greater stamina. It is also great in aiding in the recovery of a wide range of health conditions and diseases.
