You know those little tricks of the trade that your mom always had up her sleeve when you were growing up?
There are some products around the house that you could use to keep your body in tip top shape. One of these well-known ingredients is apple cider vinegar. Sounds familiar?
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is fermented apple cider that can pack a big punch with just a couple of tablespoons. This long lived home remedy can help you in a number of ways.
You may be already using it for these holidays but why not use it for our health too?
Enzymes are critical for your body and ACV is full of enzymes. When taken before meals it helps your body produce more bile, which can support your body’s breakdown of food. It can also help with indigestion, heartburn, gas, and bloating.
Apple cider vinegar may also help support your blood sugar. It might help specifically with your high carb meals by increasing your insulin sensitivity by 19-34%!
Another perk is that it has helped with weight loss in certain situations (when paired with proper diet and exercise).
Apple cider vinegar contains a high amount of pectin, which can help you feel more full after your meal. The acetic acid slows down fat production, and when added to a healthy diet, may help keep the fat off.
Loaded with probiotics, ACV helps maintain a healthy microbiome, which will then help with inflammation in your joints and digestive system. Supporting your gut health, providing a more alkaline environment, and cleansing taxed cells is important if you deal with inflammation in your body, and this vinegar can provide a simple, and natural solution.
