8 Benefits Of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar

8 Benefits Of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar

Have you ever heard of the benefits of consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar? If not, you should know that this liquid is used for much more than dressing salads.

This time I want to talk to you about the benefits of consuming one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar a day, because I myself can attest, on the recommendation of my own doctor, that it is fantastic! Next, I will tell you why.

Preparing Apple Cider Vinegar

Vinegar is made through a long process of fermentation of some carbohydrates such as grapes, potatoes, coconut, beets, and apples.

It is a slow and long process in which it seeks to maintain bioactive components such as acetic acid, gallic acid, catechin, epicatechin, or caffeic acid, among others.

The goal of the above is to ensure that apple cider vinegar has antioxidant and antimicrobial qualities.

When the fermentation time is long, the vinegar develops something like a "cobweb" that gives it a cloudy appearance, something that you can see, generally, in the organic apple cider vinegar. This appearance indicates that it is of better quality. This is the ideal state of apple cider vinegar to be consumed.

However, the normal thing is that it is filtered and pasteurized so that it looks the crystalline appearance that we usually see in the vinegar that we buy in the supermarket.

Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits

1. Apple cider vinegar is an alkalizing drink

This means that it is ideal for reducing the acidity of the body and thus favoring a better general state of health. This is stated in this study carried out by the University of Alberta (Canada).

Do not forget that a diet high in fat, salt, and similar foods can make your body's pH acidic, ideal for the proliferation of harmful microorganisms.

2. Helps with digestion

Consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar is believed to calm and relieve symptoms of slow or heavy digestion, flatulence, and bloating. It would also minimize the feeling of heartburn.

However, there is no scientific evidence to support this alleged ability.

3. It is very good for diabetes

The acetic acid in the vinegar helps lower blood sugar levels by preventing the complete digestion of complex carbohydrates. This is stated in this study conducted by the American Diabetes Association.

By consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, the enzymes responsible for breaking down hydrates are inactivated. Thus, it prevents glucose from accumulating in the blood.

4. It prevents cardiovascular diseases

According to this medical research, the components of the apple inhibit the oxidation of bad cholesterol (LDL), which leads to better cardiovascular health.

However, there is no scientific evidence that apple cider vinegar, as a product, can provide the same benefits.

If your doctor has told you that your cholesterol levels are too high, eliminate high-fat foods and try consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar a day.

5. Reduces nasal congestion

The antibiotic effect of apple cider vinegar helps reduce mucus and allows the sinuses to be clear and less congested.

If you don't want to consume a tablespoon every day, you should try vinegar at least when you have the flu as it is a very good antibacterial. The common thing is that 10 days by consuming, is enough to eliminate the problem.

In addition, if you are already having problems with a sore throat, apple cider vinegar will also reduce and eliminate discomfort since, according to this study by the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute, it is anti-inflammatory.

6. It promotes the renewal of the intestinal flora

Although there is still not enough scientific evidence to support the use of apple cider vinegar to combat constipation, it has been a great help to me as a purifier.

7. Detoxifies the kidneys

people are advised to drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in the morning.

However, there is not enough scientific evidence to support it, so I recommend that before venturing, always consult with your doctor.

8. It supports weight loss

And I wanted to get to this point. In combination with a healthy diet and exercise, taking two tablespoons of this vinegar will promote fat burning because it helps accelerate metabolism, as confirmed by the study carried out by the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute.

As a personal experience using apple cider vinegar, I can say that it helped me lose 5 kilos in 1 month, doing physical activity and leaving aside flour and fried foods, also, drinking a lot of green tea but without sugar. I used to do it with my empty stomach, just after waking up and also, before dinner. It gave me a good satiety effect but if you can’t do it with an empty stomach, you can do it before lunch.

How To Consume Apple Cider Vinegar?

Many people drink a tablespoon of vinegar alone but you have to think that it is a sour and acidic drink, and this can cause burns in the throat, other mix it with water but I do not like it that way.         

My doctor recommended me to mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of green tea. Also, because the flavor is strong, she suggested me to add honey to improve the taste and it has worked wonders for me. In addition, I also drank it using a straw to avoid direct contact with the acid with my teeth.

On the other hand, it is recommended to drink it when you wake up, with an empty stomach because according to the detox current, after having spent several hours without eating, it is possible to "enhance" the functioning of the body through a habit as simple as mixing one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with water. Specifically, it would help to detoxify your body.
