More reasons to love Apple Cider Vinegar...

Apple cider vinegar is a helpful health tonic that has shown promise in helping diabetes, cancer, heart health, high cholesterol, and weight loss, and for years people have used apple cider vinegar as a folk remedy to lower fever and aid indigestion. Reach for apple cider vinegar to cure everything from the hiccups to common cold symptoms. And I mean the organic, unfiltered kind! (I recommend Braggs).

Below are 8 reasons to love it...

1. Lowers Glucose

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which can slow down starch digestion, consequently lowering glucose levels in the bloodstream.

2. Reduces Bad Cholesterol

The presence of pectin in apple cider vinegar helps reduce bad cholesterol in the body. 

3. Contains Minerals

Potassium,magnesium, and other minerals are present in apple cider vinegar. Potassium controls the water balance in the body and maintains a healthy heart rhythm. Magnesium is a catalyst in enzyme activity, helping digestion and assisting in the uptake of calcium to form healthy bones.

4. Helps Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is cause by acid crystal buildup in the body, and apple cider vinegar can disperse these buildups by balancing the body's pH.

5. Antioxidant Activity

Apple cider vinegar contains beta-carotene, which according to the Mayo Clinic possesses antioxidant properties that counteract damage caused by free radicals and that boost your immune system.

6. Anti-Inflammatory

The anti-inflammatory properties of apple cider vinegar work to soothe the effects of sunburned skin when added to a bath. It can also help internal inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract when added to salads or taken diluted with water.

7. Weight Loss Aid

By helping balance blood sugar levels, apple cider vinegar also assists in weight loss, since insulin will not direct sugar to be stored as fat.

8. Skin Toner

Apple cider vinegar is astringent, which helps with toning the skin, especially on the face and neck. Avoid getting it in the eyes as it may cause irritation.

To your health!
