    Benefits of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar
    Home > Family > Health > Articles > Benefits of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar

    People do some pretty strange things at different times, even when it comes to their health. When we get a cough we will sometimes drink that crazy Buckleys stuff, “it tastes awful, but it works.” When we get a head cold our grandmother will tell us to place our head over a boiling pot of water with a towel over our heads. In order to try and stay healthy people have tried plenty of different things. Including fruit juice concoctions, magic powders, pills, exercises, diet fads, and the list goes on and on. These crazy acts include many home remedies and scientific proven tonics that people use to keep themselves healthy or to cure what ails them. Some of these methods are actually very interesting. They often involve exotic fruits and other foods that can taste very good. And they can sometimes involve having people try some new exercises that are a lot of fun. However, there are a number of ways of trying to stay healthy out there that just do not seem like they would be any fun at all. One of these involves the apparently very popular idea of drinking apple cider vinegar. Through my research it seems to me that this old time remedy actually can cure and fight more ailments than any other folk remedy.

    Whenever we used to hear the old tale of “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, whoever told us this was not kidding around. The truth of the matter is that apples are near the top of the list when it comes to health-giving fruits out there. The reason for this is the fact that they contain a bountiful amount of nutritious properties including: potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, sulphur, silicon, fluorine, iron, chlorine, and many other trace elements. Believe it or not all of these same health increasing properties are found in good old pure apple cider vinegar.


    One of the main benefits of apple cider vinegar is the fact that it is very effective in detoxicating both the blood stream and various organs in the body. Aspects of apple cider vinegar act, therefore, as a purifier where this drink has the ability to break down fatty mucous and phlegm deposits in the body. In turn, apple cider vinegar therefore promotes the healthy functioning of the body’s vital organs by preventing your urine from becoming excessively alkaline. The organs it assists include the kidneys, bladder, liver, etc. Apple cider vinegar also assists the blood by oxidating it, which prevents the blood from becoming too viscous (thick) and can results in putting more pressure on the heart and blood vessels, raising the blood pressure. This magic vinegar also assists in digestion and it helps to neutralize any toxic substance that enters the body. In cases of food, apple cider vinegar taken before meals can often neutralize any harmful substances that might be hidden in the food preventing things like diarrhoea.

    One key ingredient of apple cider vinegar is potassium. One great benefit of apple cider vinegar is the fact that it has a great potent supply of this element as potassium is involved in many of the bodies processes from preventing runny noses, to being essential to the normal growth of the body, to being important for the replacement of worn out tissues that rely on this mineral, to assisting the soft tissues as calcium does bones and teeth.

    In all honesty the taste of apple cider vinegar would have to be its greatest downfall. As long as you can get over the influence it has on your palate the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar seem to be unlimited including the different ailments they have been recorded as curing or helping to cure over the years. A list of these follows: allergies, arthritis, asthma, coughs, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, food poisoning, gas, gout, hair loss, headaches, heartburn, hiccups, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, insomnia, menstruation, nail problems, nervousness, nose bleeds, obesity, shingles, and sore throats just to name a few. The list is much more extensive than this. So next time you suffer from one of these annoyances try out apple cider vinegar for yourself and see what you discover.

    Start by putting 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar in a pint of water. Drink this daily. Also try using apple cider vinegar with a little oil on your salads instead of salad dressing.
    Step5Be prepared for the taste when drinking apple cider vinegar in water. It's probably not delicious to most people, but it's worth it to normalize your blood pressure. Try adding a spoonful of honey and using tepid water (to melt the honey).

    Great suggestions. I recently experimented with tossing a splash onto some mixed vegetables, and it was added a pretty nice kick.
    If you can tolerate it, which I'm assuming most can as its not that bad, shoot down a tablespoon of it and chase it with a glass of water. It might make you pucker a bit, but its not that bad at all IMO. Been taking a TSP in the morning after breakfast in hopes to stay healthy throughout the winter. Home remedies always help.

    ACV balanced PH levels which help supplements , and other functions to work optimal.I forget to take it a lot. The brand "Braggs" is a bit more expensive but its the best. theres a thread or two or three or more on it a few years ago. I seem to feel better when using it. its real useful for a lot of carbs it does something with insulin or something or blood sugar. i forget. anyways pure maple syrup 8$ for a small bottle and avc mixed in 8 oz of water sip it with meal so effects are gradual.

    The best way to take it is sip it in water earlier during the day. i tried it and yuck not going to do that.
