Apple cider vinegar. The good stuff
Why apple cider vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is known for being healthy, but how specifically?
Primes your body for digestion
Activates the vagus nerve - which starts at the bitter taste buds of the tongue and runs into the digestive tract - which primes the stomach for digestion.
Initiating the production of enzymes, stomach acid and more, so you can better break down and absorb your food.
Helps to balance the pH of your stomach:
Is good for acid reflux, and good for people with H. Pylori or indigestion.
Improves gut health:
Containing beneficial bacteria for the gut. It increases immunity and improves your ability to digest and absorb nutrients
Reducing insulin sensitivity, improving hormone signaling, mood, energy, and weight by reducing cravings.
Encourages the drainage of lymphatic fluid and enhances circulation.
What is apple cider vinegar?
It’s made from fermented apple cider so it contains probiotics and enzymes, but with fewer calories and much less sugar than apple cider or juice.
How do you find the good stuff?
Means the mother is still intact, which contains the beneficial bacteria, enzymes, and proteins
Means no genetically modified organisms or artificial additives.
The filtration process makes the ACV clear but takes out the murky mother, which is where a lot of the health benefits come from.
How to take it optimally.
1 tsp in warm water, 20-30 minutes before each meal.
A total of 1-2 tbsp per day to gain optimal benefits.
