Gillian Waddell Examines 9 Top Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Gillian Waddell examines the top health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar. What is Apple Cider Vinegar? During the fermentation process, sugars are broken down by bacteria and yeasts, into alcohol, if you ferment this further then you get vinegar. You can make vinegar from many things, fruits, vegetables and grains and in the case of apple cider vinegar – apples!
Apple Cider Vinegar has been used for hundreds of years and its benefits to health are vast. It is commonly taken every day to help prevent various health conditions as well as helping with existing health problems.
The benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar are numerous and include:
- Elimination of toxins – ACV is thought to help detoxify the liver. The acid can bind to toxins which can assist in removing toxins from the body. The potassium content in ACV can help break up mucus in the body and help clear the lymph nodes which aids the removal of toxins. Since breaking up mucus is one of apple cider vinegar’s many talents, it also helps clear out the sinuses.
- Immune system support – Prevention is better than cure, so protecting your immune system means you’re more likely to ward off diseases and infections. There are a number of properties in ACV that can aid the immune system in one way or another. ACV contains potent malic acid. This is a strong antiviral and one reason why many people who take ACV daily feel their immunity is boosted as they do not experience as many colds or other viral infections. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar is rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes all of which are beneficial to the body.
- Weight Management – Apple Cider Vinegar may help control weight by delaying gastric emptying, stimulating metabolism and improving blood sugar levels.
- Diabetes Prevention – ACV can aid control of insulin and blood sugar levels as it has shown an anti glycemic effect which helps with insulin sensitivity.
- Cholesterol – ACV may improve cholesterol levels – In a study published by in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, ACV lowered LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol).
- Bad Breath – ACV is thought to eliminate bacteria which may be causing the bad breath.
- Helps maintain healthy skin – ACV is rich in natural organic acids (alpha-hydroxy acids) used by dermatologists and skincare specialists to help skin have a more youthful and glowing healthy appearance.
- Improve digestion – If you have poor digestion and want to stimulate the digestive juices, apple cider vinegar at the beginning of a meal may help. ACV also contains a natural amount of pectin which will help with digestion problems.
- Alkalise the body – apple cider vinegar is acidic but acts as an alkaline in the body which can help to bring the body back into balance.
One drawback of Apple Cider Vinegar is the problem that it can potentially damage the enamel of our teeth. The smell and the taste also put a lot of people off!
