Apple Cider Vinegar for Weight Loss
Did you know that apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been used for health benefits for centuries? It's amazing how long the list goes on and on when reading about the health benefits of drinking ACV daily. Not all ACV are created equal, for optimal results use organic, non pasteurized vinegar with Mother. Bragg's is my choice, it's delicious when mixed as a hot drink with raw honey & cinnamon.
Studies done by Dr D. C. Jarvis, M.D., call for the taking of one or two teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water before each meal. Patricia Bragg recommends adding 1 or 2 teaspoons of raw honey to this mixture.
Adding honey & cinnamon have additional health properties; honey strengthens the immune system and cinnamon keeps blood sugar level. Drinking ACV warm also aids in digestion. Drink a cup first thing in the morning and again at night to keep you digestive track running smoothly. Be sure to sip it with a straw and drink water following to protect teeth enamel.
Whichever way you take it, don't expect a rapid weight loss, the weight will be lost gradually, as it should be to allow the body's fat cells to adjust to their new size.
How Does ACV Work?
There are a number of theories how ACV works in aiding weight loss. It is believed that the nutrients, enzymes, and organic acids in ACV cause weight reduction by acting as an appetite suppressant, helps break down fats, by increasing your body's metabolic rate, by reducing water retention due to the potassium and minerals found in ACV, and by helping you maintain a feeling of well being. It also balances blood sugar and keeps the body alkalized.
ACV is a ancient health secret, you may want to try some today for improved health, energy and weight loss. Be sure only to use ACV with Mother, any other type will be too acidic.
As with any healthy living lifestyle you must eat diets low in fat, preservatives, sodium and sugars. Eating too much fat, sugars & sodium will cause increased fat stores and are very hard on the body.
