Health Benefits of ACV...

Apple Cider Vinegar, that is. While searching for natural remedies for arthritis pain for my father, I was quickly reminded of the power within ACV. In the past, a brand that I have used is Bragg, which you can find more information here.

Let's take a look at some additional health benefits:
  • Dissolves kidney stones
  • Regulates pH balance in the body
  • Prevents flu & stomach illness
  • Lowers blood pressure & cholesterol
  • Helps relieve sinus pressure & infection
  • Reduces inflammation, relieves arthritis pain
  • Helps weight loss by curbing appetite & breaking down fats
  • Helps relive asthma symptoms

A shot a day, may keep the doctor away! It is very potent, so if you are like me, you may not be able to take a full shot. Here's how you can incorporate the use of ACV in your daily nutrition regimen:

- 2 tbsp of ACV in 1/2 cup of 100% pure juice (orange, pineapple, etc), 2x per day
- 2 tbsp of ACV in 16 oz of water, 1 tbsp of raw honey & 1 squirt of lemon or orange juice, 1x per day

Not all ACV products are one in the same. If you are picking up a bottle and it is not Bragg's, be sure to look for "with the Mother". This just means, that it is the "mother" of vinegars, is not pasteurized and is organic.
