Friend or Foe?: Apple Cider Vinegar 

Just like I predicted, we’ve reached the 6 month mark for a new fitness trend to be discovered. Today’s culprit is : Apple Cider vinegar. Yes, that bottle that’s been under you sink for months, used to clean dirty counters, kill weeds, and even as deodorant ( don’t ask) is now holding the flag for MVP of health and fitness. It’s suggested that you have a teaspoon of it every morning ( raw or mixed into a drink)So let’s breakdown down the benefits of it and allow you to be the judge yourself.. Just most informed.

  

1. Helps Heartburn and Acid Reflux
Acid reflux usually results from having too little acid in the stomach. Apple cider vinegar is full of antibiotic properties. To improve the acid content of your stomach, drink one tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of water.
2. Promotes Healthy Cholesterol
Not only does apple cider vinegar support healthy cholesterol, studies have shown that it can protect from arterial damage or oxidation, which is the main risk of high cholesterol.
3. Can Aid in Healthy Weight Loss
Yep, apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight. The acetic acid it contains helps to suppress your appetite, increase your metabolism and reduce water retention. Being that a lot of us carry unnecessary water weight due to high sodium intake, and lack of exercise, this can be a great way to suppress that.   
4. Promotes Healthy Blood Sugar
Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar has strong anti-glycemic properties that support a healthy blood sugar level. The vinegar actually blocks some of the digestion of starch, preventing it from raising your blood sugar. Personally… This is a big deal
6. Improves Nutrient Absorption
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can increase your body’s absorption of important minerals from the food you eat. Adding vinegar to your salad dressing may also help you absorb more nutrients from your leafy greens!

Honestly, we can go on and on about the benefits of this product but these six are the best ones. So, now your interested in trying it-cool. Take some every morning, for starters and if drinking it isn’t your thing you can add it to meals, smoothies, or even water.
If you decide to do it, report back your finding here-I’ll wait for you guys before I jump on the trend
