I take two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar every day. And the results have been nothing short of amazing. My skin looks 100 times better (softer, smoother, glowing). I have more energy. My digestion is improved. Whenever I take a shot of it, I feel immediate energy. So how do I do it and what does it taste like?
Well first, I don’t do it straight. I did that a few times, but I felt it was too harsh and some reports indicate that such a high level of condensed acidity may not be a good way to take it. Still, many do, but it isn’t for me. I simply take a glass of water and put two tablespoons of it into the water. Then I drink the water.
The taste is bitter and the first few sips you take you probably won’t like a whole lot. I know that I didn’t. But, knowing the reported health benefits, I stuck with it. Now I look forward to it. It taste a bit bitter, slightly acidic (when mixed with water). It goes down almost with a warm sensation.
What kind do you want? You want unfiltered apple cider vinegar (like Bragg’s). This is the only kind I buy. I like to keep things as simple as possible. I can see “the mother” floating in it, which is what you want when you buy Apple Cider Vinegar. Remember, there are lots of frauds out there, I’d suggest just going with what’s mentioned here. Bragg’s brand is found at most grocery stores, and if you can’t find it there, order it online.
What does it do?
It can help with weight loss. It can make you feel fuller, increase satiety, which in turn causes you to want to eat less (and less bad foods).
According to Prevention.com, just a tbsp of ACV when you feel a cold coming on can really help your cause.
Adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice, to a glass of water helps to alkalinize the body. Creating an alkaline environment helps kill bacteria and viruses. Start drinking it at the first sign of illness and repeat several times a day until the symptoms subside.
It can help with skin issues, such as bug bites and cuts or scrapes. I put this stuff on bug bites all the time, it kills the itch and the bug bite dies off incredibly fast. This is one of my main uses for it! It also has been said that it can help get rid of warts.
ACV contains potassium, which can help your muscles with recovery and help keep you energized.
It helps with digestion and heartburn. ACV reportedly will improve the acid content of your stomach, thereby resulting in less heartburn or indigestion.
You can use it to clean with! It can also kill pathogens and bacteria, making it the perfect natural cleaning agent solution. Check out this study comparing it to Lysol! “Vinegar eliminated <3 logs10 of S. aureus and E. coli,”. I use ACV as my lone cleaning product and it has worked out just perfect for me.
