2. Apple cider vinegar is a pre-biotic

One of the greatest things about drinking apple cider vinegar is that you will benefit from its natural pre-biotic properties. This means that consuming it will help replenish your gut with beneficial bacteria that will improve your digestion. This is especially beneficial for those who may have damaged their gut biome with antibiotics.

 

3. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties

Apple cider vinegar has antioxidants which combat harmful free radicals in the body. This can help relieve inflammation and the plethora of health issues linked to it.

 

4. It prevents kidney stones

Kidney stones can be excruciatingly painful. Apple cider vinegar’s alkaline properties can help reduce the acidity in blood and urine, which leads to crystallization. This leads to the formation kidney stones.

 

5. It may help you lose weight

Apple cider vinegar helps curb your appetite, so you feel full longer and don’t experience the urge to overeat. It also raises your metabolism so you won’t put on weight easily. However, it’s not an instant cure for obesity. Drinking some vinegar isn’t going to make you lose 20 pounds overnight. It should be included as part of a healthy lifestyle and diet focused on losing weight.

 

How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Health

The simplest way to use it is to simply mix it with water and drink up. Blend 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with an 8-oz glass of water and enjoy. It should have a somewhat tart taste.

Apple cider vinegar also blends well with shakes and cocktails for detoxing.

Try this cocktail if you are undergoing a cleanse:

  • 1-2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice (or squeeze two wedges out and drop them in the jar)
  • 1 cup of water
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste, but be warned: This stuff is VERY strong!)
  • 1 tbsp of raw honey
