Historical evidence suggests that vinegar itself was first created around 5000 B.C. Apple cider vinegar, in particular, has been used for centuries to promote health and wellbeing but why is it so effective? When ACV is created, the alcohol in apple cider is exposed to air and healthy bacteria converting it into acetic acid. Studies suggest that acetic acid has exceptional health benefits and may help with everything from weight loss to heart disease.
Unfiltered ACV is cloudy in color and still contains the beneficial bacteria and acetic acid that is created during fermentation. This is similar to the SCOBY in kombucha making and is also called the “mother.” The mother may also have a web-like texture and is packed full of nutritional benefits!
If you don’t like the taste or texture of unfiltered ACV you can still get many of its nutritional benefits in capsule form with supplements like Parker Naturals Pure All Natural Garcinia Cambogia with Apple Cider Vinegar which contains a healthy daily dose of ACV!
We’ve put together a list of unique health uses for unfiltered apple cider vinegar and there are a million more reasons to keep some in your pantry!
While the recent sight of spring flowers and buds on the trees may be a welcome break from the grueling winter, the change of seasons can be a nightmare for those suffering from seasonal allergies. Over the counter medications are expensive and often include inconvenient and unpleasant side-effects such as drowsiness. Try drinking a couple of tablespoons of ACV in a glass of water next time you feel the seasonal sniffles coming on. The bacteria found in unfiltered ACV may help you build immunity and support lymphatic drainage.
2. Weight Loss
According to an Arizona State University study, drinking ACV before eating could lead to a decrease in the change of blood glucose after meals. Healthy diets often regulate blood sugar levels to keep our eating patterns more regular. ACV also contains high levels of pectin which has been shown to aid digestion and curb hunger.
For even greater weight loss benefits try consuming a supplement like garcinia cambogia with your ACV. Garcinia cambogia is made from a tropical fruit known as the Malabar Tamarind with the natural active ingredient hydroxycitric acid or HCA. Studies show that HCA may also boost your fat burning potential by blocking the fat building enzyme citrate lyase. It also boosts the levels of serotonin in your brain which could curb your hunger and improve your mood.
You can receive all the benefits of both apple cider vinegar and garcinia cambogia in one simple tablet with a supplement like Parker Naturals Pure All Natural Garcinia Cambogia with Apple Cider Vinegar.
If you experience frequent heartburn studies show that unfiltered apple cider vinegar can help! ACV may neutralize your stomach acid, balancing your PH levels and preventing backflow into the esophagus. Add a tablespoon or two of ACV to an 8 oz glass of water and drink before your meal to help reduce the symptoms of heartburn.
The beneficial bacteria found in ACV may help to boost your immune system and kick the common cold faster. ACV also helps to alkalize your body, making it more effective at fighting viruses. Next time you feel under the weather try this soothing remedy:
- Mix together ¼ cup of ACV, 1 tablespoon of raw honey, ½ lemon and ½ cup of water. Bring to a boil and remove from heat immediately. Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and enjoy.
If you underestimated the strength of those first summer rays and forgot to reapply your sunscreen at the beach, ACV can help ease the pain of sunburn. Simply add a cup of ACV to a lukewarm bath. Some doctors also recommend following your bath by spreading a liberal dose of natural aloe vera on the affected areas.
5. Teeth Whitening
Use with caution as the powerful stain removing qualities of ACV can actually damage tooth enamel if used too regularly. Rub ACV directly on the stain with your finger and then rinse thoroughly with water. For a less intense whitening mouthwash, rinse with one tablespoon of ACV diluted with about a cup of water instead.
Say goodbye to those pesky white specks with this cheap alternative to expensive salon treatments. The acidity in ACV may make it harder for the fungus that can cause dandruff to grow. Mix equal parts ACV and water and spray a healthy amount into your hair after you shampoo. Leave for 20 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Try this natural remedy twice per week for an easy, natural and affordable dandruff solution.
7. Body Odor
Did you know, the acidity in ACV alters the pH level of your skin and attacks the bacteria that can cause unwanted body odor? Soak a thick paper towel or baby wipe in ACV and pat over feet or underarms for a natural solution. The vinegar smell will disappear once it dries, leaving you smelling clean and fresh! For an alternative, mix equal parts ACV and water for an on the go body spray.
Keep some organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in your pantry as an effective natural remedy for everything from dandruff to heartburn and remember to try Parker Naturals Pure All Natural Garcinia Cambogia with Apple Cider Vinegar for all the benefits of ACV for weight loss in one simple tablet.
