Apple Cider Vinegar Is Magic In A Bottle
Through the ages, people have always searched for a cure-all, an elixir to bring health and vibrancy and rid whoever drinks it of disease. There’s nothing in the world as easy as popping a pill or drinking some magic potion, which is why the idea of such a treatment has always seemed so seductive. Indeed, it is seductive enough for pharmaceutical corporations to spend billions of dollars to develop such products for particular conditions (and millions more to market them).
But what if we told you that something close to a magic elixir has existed for thousands of years and has been used by cultures all over the world? That you don’t need a prescription for it? That it costs only about as much as a meal off the dollar menu at McDonald’s?
It’s not magic at all. We’re talking about apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is produced when the juice from apples is allowed to ferment twice. The first fermentation results in hard apple cider, which is fun in ways this article will not go into detail on. The second fermentation produces apple cider vinegar, a substance which has been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes and can be used for many other applications as well.
Why is apple cider vinegar so healthy?
Apple cider vinegar works best as a preventative tonic, but it can be used as a traditional home remedy for certain conditions as well. The benefits of adding apple cider vinegar to your diet are manifold, so let’s break down why it’s such a miracle product.
1. It restores PH balance in your body
Your pH balance is the ratio between acidity and alkalinity. The ideal pH range for the human body is between 7.35 – 7.45. The modern Western diet is, unfortunately, very acidic, and as a result pushes our pH levels too far toward the acidic end of the spectrum.
High acidity in the body has been linked to chronic fatigue, upset stomach, and a smorgasbord of other health problems. Drinking some apple cider vinegar can help restore your body’s alkaline levels and bring your pH levels into a healthy range.
