5 Reasons Why You Should Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Every Single Day

All across the country, Americans spend thousands of dollars on expensive prescription drugs, which only treat symptoms.

Snake oil salesmen take advantage of Americans’ desire to be healthy and attempt to persuade folks to invest in the “newest and best” supplements on the market.

But as more and more Americans open up their wallet to pay for the latest drug, they are disappointed to learn most of these supplements don’t work.

Frustrated, many are on the lookout for the next “latest and greatest” drug or a “magic pill” to quickly cure their health issues.

However, the best cure might be sitting right in your kitchen cabinet.

And this well-known common household item has been used for more than 5,000 years to treat and prevent dozens of health problems and diseases.

In fact, this inexpensive item can be found in most homes and drinking just 1 tbsp a day can significantly improve your health, without breaking the bank.

Here are 5 reasons you should drink 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar everyday:

  1. Improved Digestion: Trouble digesting your food? Apple cider vinegar can help stimulate digestive juices, which will help your body breakdown food and digest it properly.  Since apple cider vinegar is highly acidic, it can also help control the growth of unwanted bacteria in the stomach.
  2. Lowered Blood Sugar: Let’s face it – Americans are known to consume high levels of sugar. Diabetes is on the rise, with nearly 29 million Americans currently diagnosed and struggling to control diabetes. Whether you are diabetic, or are simply looking to lower your blood sugar, 1tbsp of apple cider vinegar is shown to lower blood sugar and increase insulin sensitivity. And according to the National Institute of Health, participants who consumed 50 grams of white bread saw their blood sugar reduced by 31% while taking apple cider vinegar.
  3. Cleared Sinuses: Apple cider vinegar contains anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which can thin out your mucus and help reduce sinus infections. The key is to take 1 tbsp or apple cider vinegar at the first sign of a sinus infection. The vitamins in apple cider vinegar help break up the mucus and provide relief for allergy symptoms such as congestion. And with allergy season currently in bloom, this is a natural way to treat your allergies, without feeling drowsy.
  4. Suppressed Appetite:1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar before your meal can make you feel fuller faster. Because your stomach ends up feeling more satisfied, you’ll end up consuming less calories overall during your meal.
  5. Prevent Candida Overgrowth: The acid and enzymes in apple cider vinegar help kill candida, otherwise known as yeast. Candida overgrowth can cause a host of problems in the body such as mood disorders, extreme fatigue, brain frog, and sinus infections.

So instead of throwing away thousands of dollars on the latest health gimmick, open up your kitchen cabinet and try 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar.

Remember to add 8oz of water to every tbsp of apple cider vinegar, as drinking it straight can burn your esophagus and damage your tooth enamel.

When selecting which type of apple cider vinegar to buy, quality does matter.

Make sure your apple cider vinegar is organic, raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and has a label which says ‘with the mother’. “The Mother” is the cloudy stuff on the bottom at the bottle, which gives the murky appearance. However, it is full of enzymes, and is the most nutritious part.

Don’t like the taste of apple cider vinegar?

You can add raw honey, fresh lemon slices, or a drop of lemon essential oil to your apple cider vinegar/water mix to improve the flavor. Feel free to substitute regular water for sparkling water for an added kick.

You can also mix virgin olive oil, black pepper, lemon, and apple cider vinegar together and create your own homemade salad dressing.
