One of the first things I suggest to my clients is to start adding 1 oz. of apple cider vinegar daily to their diet. I actually make an elixir.
To one 16 oz bottle of water - I drink the first 4 0z. then add 1 oz ACV, 2 T raw organic lemon. 1 T of Super Greens drink powder from Trader Joes or whatever brand I have, 1 T of Supper red drink powder - also from TJ. 1 t. Ginger 1 t. cinnamon. 1 scoop of proboitic.
Raw organic apple cider vinegar truly is nature’s perfect miracle food—and should never be confused with regular clear vinegar. Clear vinegar has none of the health properties of ACV and can actually be harmful.Traditional uses of ACV are almost limitless! To name just a few… ACV has been used to ease digestion, aid in flu prevention, reduce inflammation, regulate pH balance, ease nausea and heartburn, as a staple in detox regimens, and for a number of skin conditions—including reducing acne and smoothing wrinkles!
But why exactly does ACV contain so many healing properties?The secret may lie in its alkalizing effect! Even though ACV is acidic (like a lemon or lime), it creates a perfect alkaline environment in your body that is the exact opposite of what most diseases require to thrive.And then there’s the incredible concentration of naturally occurring vital nutrients...Raw, organic ACV is made from organic apples and undergoes a double fermentation process, which produces enzymes and preserves its health-promoting characteristics. Some of the most beneficial nutrients in raw, organic ACV include:
* Potassium: essential for normal heart, kidney and other organ and cellular functionIron: important for blood health
*Magnesium: vital to heart healthEnzymes: boost chemical reactions in the body
*Malic acid: protects vinegar from viruses, bacteria and fungus
*Acetic acid: slows the digestion of starch and inhibits bacterial growth
*Calcium: builds strong bones and teeth
*Pectin: helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol
*Ash: maintains a healthy alkaline state in the body
Plus, ACV provides a veritable smorgasbord of vitamins and powerful antioxidants including vitamin A, B6, C, E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, beta-carotene and lycopene!
The healing power of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV for short) has been known for millennia—
dating back to ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. The Roman Army—once the most powerful and formidable conquerors of the known world—used an ACV tonic to stay strong and healthy…And Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used this amazing elixir as a natural antibiotic and antiseptic to heal patients in 400 B.C.!And there was nothing “magic” about it—just good common sense, concentrated nutrients and one extraordinary ingredient found only in ACV…But folk remedies carried down though hundreds—even thousands—of years are not the only proof that ACV is the real deal. Research is starting to validate mounds of anecdotal evidence that ACV is not only useful—it’s effective!
Just look at the science…weight Loss! In a Japanese study participants who drank more ACV than their counterparts during a 12 week period had lower BMI, waist circumference and visceral fat than the control group who drank none!According to one study, consuming ACV decreased the risk of esophageal cancer!In clinical trials, ACV was shown to slow the growth of cancerous cells within the prostate! And the Gerson Institute—a leader in cancer research and treatment—fights cancer with a therapy that alkalizes the body to inhibit the growth of cancer because cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment. ACV naturally alkalizes your body!
