Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help?

Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural remedy you can use for acid reflux instead of antacids. One of my clients was taking prescribed ant acids for his acid reflux for years.  At one of his regular doctor’s check-ups it was found that he was no longer absorbing vitamin B12.  This was due to the medication he was taking over many years.  Luckily he takes B12 shots monthly and uses Apple Cider Vinegar along with a healthy diet.

Stress and Anxiety a factor also for acid reflux.  As mentioned in previous posts stress and anxiety are causes of most of our physical symptoms.  Acid Reflux being one of the.
5 ways apple cider vinegar is good for you

Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the remedies I have been taking every day. One of the reasons is it is a Natural anti biotic it has many benefits for your body.

I first came across Apple Cider Vinegar about 10 years ago when I was doing a detox.   For 24 hours I drank Apple Cider Vinegar which is full of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and potassium in raw form. I mixed it with Cayenne and Lemon and it was very good for the purpose I was trying to achieve at the time.

I then found out and realized it is also great as a natural anti biotic and 1 teaspoon per day in warm water is beneficial.  What I also discovered as I got older – I started to get indigestion which was pretty painful in my chest.  I read that Apple Cider Vinegar was a remedy that would help.   So I took 2 teaspoons in warm water and within 15 minutes the pain was gone.  It is one of the products I recommend for my clients with acid reflux.

Symptoms of Acid Reflux

  • belching
  • heartburnBenefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • nausea
  • bitter taste
  • dry cough
  • upper abdomen discomfort

Some of you may think as you are dealing with an Acid when you take ACV it would be bad for you but you should always drink it diluted in water, preferably warm water.  Up to 3 teaspoons, a day in water will keep your body in a good state. Remember if you are taking medications please refer to your health provider before changing any of your normal routines.  Also as ACV is an acid this can affect the enamel on your teeth, so clean them often.

.Some other benefits of ACV

  • Aids your immune system

  • May stabilize blood sugar levels – if you have diabetes please make sure you check before using ACV

Eating healthy is the best way to keep your body in good condition and remember you can also add apple cider vinegar to your salad dressings.


 

I hope you enjoy exploring something new and beneficial just like I did. ACV is a great natural remedy and natural remedies in my view are always the best.

Would appreciate your comments on your experience with ACV, also share with others who you know suffer in silence.

    I did not know apple cider vinegar had so many pluses to it. I do remember someone once mentioning it as an old wives tale but I can’t remember what.

    Great Article! I have been hearing more and more through the years that ACV is a great addition to your daily routine! A older friend of mine uses ACV and unpasteurized honey with hot water every day and swears it helps with arthritis, do you think it could do that as well? (his dad used to do this, so I am not sure if its an old wives tale or not)
    Thanks again!

    This is a great article. My son gets acid indigestion constantly and he takes the acid reducer pills. But I like this better, natural and quick. With the pills, it generally takes a few days for him to start to feel better. This is a much better solution!

    Hi Alice,
    Yes I found the same as I get older i now get indigestion. It suggests mixing with warm water I usually have it either room temp or slightly warmer makes it easier to go down. You can certainly drink it cold but really you should not drink really cold water anyway, thats another topic lol

    I have been reading about the benefits of apple cider vinegar. I didn’t know that you can use it for indigestion. As I get older, I have noticed a slight increase in indigestion. I will be trying the apple cider vinegar the next time it happens. Do you have to use warm water to mix it with? Can you mix it with cold water?

    This is something I’ve begun to hear more about: the benefits of ACV. I’ve even read where you can apply ACV topically to help with skin, etc. A real wonder of a product!
    I’m glad to indigestion.
    Thanks for a helpful article!
