As briefly stated in another one of my posts, the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar goes beyond managing weight loss. Its becoming more widely known about in today’s society, but in case you haven’t heard, I’ll let you know all about it here. An awesome ACV supplement can also be found here!

Health, Allergies & Cholesterol
It is a known fact that apple cider vinegar can help improve ones overall health. Don’t make the same mistake that I did for years. When people talked about the benefits of ACV, I decided to start drinking it as a supplement on a daily basis. I didn’t get the promised effects I had expected because I wasn’t taking the “Correct” apple cider vinegar. It has to be the “Raw Unfiltered Organic ACV” that contains “Mother”. That was a very important piece of information that I had missed in the beginning.
It was once only an age-old home remedy in helping with health issues that some believed and some didn’t. There have been many test and studies done on this miracle solution and it isn’t a myth any longer. It’s been proven to ease health ailments and restore the body in many ways.
ACV helps to relieve people with bad sinus problems by reducing the levels of mucus decreasing nasal irritation. This can relieve people who have environmental allergies or even those who suffer from pet or food allergies.
I’m not a doctor or a scientist, but after doing some thorough research, ACV is also known to help those with high cholesterol. ACV contains a substance called Pectin. Pectin is a fiber and found in apples and in apple cider vinegar. There have been studies showing that “The BAD cholesterol” known as LDL attaches itself to the pectin which then eliminates the cholesterol.
UTI, Arthritis, Inflammation & Joint Pain
Studies have shown that one of the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar can prevent urinary tract infections. ACV creates a more acidic environment in the urinary tract which helps decrease bacterial growth.
“Knowing this bit of information alone, encouraged me to start taking apple cider vinegar. I’m one of those females that have had entirely too many UTI infections”!
Do you exercise now? Did you used to exercise? What stopped you?
Joint pain stopped me. The discovery of ACV changed my life in so many ways. There are tons of over the counter drugs, creams, and pain patches to try to ease arthritis, inflammation and joint pain. There are also tons of prescription medicines out there for the same symptoms, but watch out for all of those side effects listed for each one. I’ve tried many things over the years and nothing ever seem to work. Apple cider vinegar is a very inexpensive and natural remedy to try. I started taking ACV as a supplement for weight loss along with exercise and soon realized the pain in my joints was nearly gone and that exercise became much easier.
Not only has it been an age-long remedy, studies have now also shown that just by adding one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to a 4 oz glass of water (adding honey if you prefer) 2 or 3 times a day can greatly reduce pain and increase mobility after 1-2 weeks. I’m not going into all the details about how it works, that’s for the scientist and doctors to explain, I just know that it works for me.
Another little tip I discovered…
As an ointment try mixing 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar and 1 TBSP coconut oil together and rub it into those painful areas. This really works nicely for me.
Constipation, Bloating & Weight Loss
Taking two tablespoons of ACV mixed in warm water 2 or 3 times daily before meals can help those with issues of constipation. The acetic acid found in ACV supports microbial gut health. This will also reduce bloating and aid in weight loss management.
Aids in preventing Memory loss & Chronic diseases
I don’t know about you, but the older I get the worse my memory is. In 2013 Dr. David Jockers exposed the biggest threats to brain health some of which were related to stress, inflammation, toxic foods we eat, and negative or unhealthy lifestyles we have. Gluten, soy, high blood sugar, fluoride, toxic fats, poor sleeping habits and over-all stress are leading factors in causing those threats to the brain. Those toxins not only affect our memory but also can lead to serious chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s. One of the leading causes of Alzheimer’s diseases is from blood sugar imbalances.
ACV contains healthy acids and enzymes that lower glucose (blood sugar) levels. Unstable blood sugar can have a negative impact on your health, energy, weight gain, and lead to serious chronic inflammatory diseases. Taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before going to bed can decrease your blood sugar level by 4-6%!
Better Sleep, Enhanced mood, and Happiness
Lets face the facts, if we get better sleep we tend to be in better moods and a lot happier. Drinking that warm cup of water with apple cider vinegar and honey before bedtime can help you sleep better.
While its helping you sleep it’s possible to also help men with erectile dysfunction. This common health condition men face can improve just from taking ACV because it relieves a lot of the associated symptoms such as;
stress and depression
diabetes (high blood sugar levels)
chronic pain and diseases
