Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

For the past few months I've been taking Apple Cider Vinegar daily. I've heard of all the benefits regarding Apple Cider Vinegar and have really started noticing its effects on my body. What does this elixir really do, other than flavor your salad? Here are some well known benefits and well some not so very well known.

Helps with Heartburn
1 tablespoon of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar mixed in 4 ounces of purified water after a meal has been used as a natural remedy for heartburn

Prevents Brittle teeth & hair loss
This was a great plus because around 3 months  postpartum I always get a surge of hair loss, after I began drinking it it seem to fix this issues almost immediately. If put in hair it will remove build up from styling products and conditioners &strengthen the hair shaft, leaving you with soft, shiny hair. It will also balance hair's pH level, kill bacteria, and get rid of ugly dandruff. 

Helps with Blood Glucose after meal
Take some Apple Cider Vinegar before a meal and it is said to slow the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals. This is especially great for those that have Diabetes and are watching their levels after meals as well as those watching their weight.

Regulates Blood pressure
It can help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.

Helps ward of Sickness and Runny Noses
 My family has had quite a few colds lately rotate through our house, however none have touched me. This can most likely be chalked up to the  blend of vitamins, minerals and enzymes in Apple Cider Vinegar. It also possesses antimicrobial and antiseptic properties.So as soon as you start feeling a runny nose, take some of it to help yourself right away.

May help improve bowel irregularity and helps to remove toxins from the body at a faster rate.
it also aids in  weight loss by breaking down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them.Because of the detoxification it can also It can help clear up skin conditions and blemishes

It's even said that some studies have found that Apple Cider Vinegar may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth.

Which kind to use?
It is best to use only Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. A brand that is well known and reputable is Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. It comes with the "Mother" of the vinegar (similar to the scoby in Kombucha) So it is packed full of enzymes, protein and goodness.

This can be an easy habit to incorporate into you diet. How much you take or tolerate is soley based on you. This habit can become something so beneficial to your life, why not begin today by incorporating it into your life. I am so glad I did.

*Everyone is different so please consult a doctor if beginning a detoxification regiment.

I'm currently pregnant with my fourth baby and I'm really concerned about hair loss because after every baby it just comes out in clumps regardless of diet or supplements. I'm looking foward to trying this because it's so simple.

These are all fantastic. My Mother is a country born girl and uses the most unusual items sometimes. My neices husband is from Columbia and she has learned how to make so many natural cures per say and such. I have used it to bring down my blood pressure when I forgot my meds. It truly worked and pretty quick!
