Apple Cider Vinegar for Health & Wellness

According to Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA, apple cider vinegar has lots of healing benefits. It has been used for hundreds of years by traditional healers.  It’s alkaline property assists your body in restoring proper pH levels and brings health and balance back to your digestive system.

Rich in potassium apple cider vinegar helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses. The pectin (from the apples) helps to regulate blood pressure and Malic Acid gives apple cider vinegar the healing properties of being anti-viral, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal.

According to Jess Ainsough in her article “7 Reasons to Love Apple Cider Vinegar”, it can help with the following:

  • Detoxification
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Helps with digestion
  • Alleviates skin problems
  • Gets rid of warts
  • Helps ward of sickness
  • Helps produce soft and shiny hair

She recommends to always use the organic raw, unpasteurized and unfermented apple cider vinegar and suggest looking for it in a glass container, (preferably dark glass), to protect it’s nutritional qualities from sunlight.  Once opened, it is important to keep your apple cider vinegar ‘alive’ by storing it in the refrigerator.

  • For me, I even had one of those earth shattering dreams which prompted me to start drinking apple cider vinegar each day.  I started with a shot of apple cider vinegar, which is how I saw it in my dream.  I made that mistake just once, as it almost wiped me out.  I now put a few teaspoons in a warm glass of water to dilute it, and then drink it with a straw as fast as I can so I taste it as little as possible.  (Yes, I am a wuss).

    There are apple cider vinegar pills for those who can’t stomach drinking vinegar, but the pills I checked out are filled with chemicals and additives, so I’m going the natural route; the stuff in the bottle.  I’ll report back after I’ve been doing this for a month or so to let you know what health changes I’ve noticed from consuming apple cider vinegar each day. I’m hoping for a sexy body with soft shiny hair to my butt.  (Yes, I’m dreaming big!)
