The Health Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar

Vinegar has long been used in alternative medicine and natural remedies. Of course it is also found in any kitchen and used in a variety of different foods and drinks. Vinegar adds tang to your salad and preserves your favorite pickled vegetables. The most beneficial of all the vinegars out there is raw apple cider vinegar. Let’s quickly go over some of the main health benefits it provides.

It’s A Great Disinfectant

Vinegar has been used since ancient times to clean wounds and disinfect. You can wash small scrapes and cuts with undiluted vinegar. It has been used to preserve food for centuries and has been shown to inhibit bacteria like E.coli from growing. Traditionally, vinegar has also been used as a treatment for lice, warts, and nail fungus. For these purposes is doesn’t matter if you are using raw or pasteurized apple cider vinegar. Even plain white vinegar will do.

When your throat starts to feel sore, try this old folk remedy. Mix ACV and warm water in equal parts and gargle with it frequently throughout the day.

It Contains Active Cultures That Can Help Your Gut

Raw apple cider vinegar contains a web-like substance called mother of vinegar. It’s a living culture of probiotic bacteria and cellulose. It’s these bacteria or active cultures that are beneficial to your gut health. It introduces and promotes the growth of good gut bacteria while preventing the explosive growth of “bad” bacteria that mainly feed on sugar and starches.

It Makes A Great Indigestion Aid

The acid and beneficial bacteria can both help with indigestion. If you know you’ll eat a big or heavy meal, drink a glass of warm water with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. The same folk remedy will work when you are suffering from indigestion anytime.

It Helps Lower Your Blood Sugar And Can Aid In Weight Loss

Drinking a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar (preferably the raw kind with the mother of vinegar), can be very beneficial when it comes to blood sugar control. This is great news for people with type II diabetes and in the prevention of it. ACV has been shown to reduce insulin resistance, fasting blood sugar, and it keeps your blood sugar from spiking as much when you eat sugary or starchy foods. It’s not a cure for diabetes, but it can help.

The acetic acid in ACV is an appetite suppressant. This combined with the beneficial effects it has on blood sugar levels makes it a good weight loss aid. Drink a glass of water with ACV before each meal for best results. The water will help even more with making you feel full sooner.

I feel so scattered and nothing is being done 100% - but I'm not stressed ... my 12yr old is recovering well from his illness, my girls are behaving (sorta) well this week and I'm about to runaway with the hubby for 2 days to see his favorite soccer team play in Houston! The kids will be in good hands and I think 40hrs with out them will help us finish out the last half of summer break! I'm just going to breathe and get things done whenever I can! #summer2017 #summerkids #summercraziness #momlife #momblog #momblogger #momof3

  • Ahhh my downstairs is clean ... my girls are playing barbies and my boy and me are watching my favorite tv show The West Wing!  I've decided to scale back on how much I work ... just for the summer... I've been feeling more anxious about not working more on my blogs... as much as I enjoy the work I want to focus on my babies more... so if I can't work on it at night it will just have to wait :) my happy chaos life is too much fun to ignore :) time to make more memories!! Hopefully this change in focus will bring me more content and ideas for projects going forward! I'm blessed to financially be able to do this as I know not everyone is as priveleged.  #wahm #sahmlife #summer2017 #summertime #summerkids #momblogger #momlife #momof3 #momblog #mommyhood #mommoments
