Grab a bottle of apple cider vinegar and get healthier

How would drinking unfiltered apple cider vinegar help improve your health?  Can it lower blood pressure? Give you a healthier heart? Regulate glucose? Improve digestion? Would you believe all the above and them some?

Apple cider vinegar is held up by nutritionists and doctors as a go-to for better health because it helps the human body in a myriad of ways. Among them (besides those mentioned) are stronger hair, clearer skin and stop allergies. So how can one product do all that?

Apple cider vinegar isn’t some sort of miracle drug or snake oil. It simply is the fermented juice of crushed apples and contains acetic acid and nutrients, such as vitamins B and C.  It also contains small amounts of sodium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium that can be beneficial in many ways, such as improve bone strength, alleviate sinus problems and aid in weight loss.

The highly acidic vinegar’s biggest benefit could be in changing how foods get absorbed in the stomach, according to Webmd.com. It has been shown to lower blood sugar levels after meals in people with diabetes.

Still, care should be taken when ingesting apple cider vinegar because of its high-level of acid. It should never be taken undiluted. It is recommended that two teaspoons mixed with a cup of water and consumed with a straw as to prevent the vinegar from wearing away tooth enamel.
