Everyone already knows how important apple cider vinegar is for skin and hair, but if you did not know before, vinegar is also very important for health. It may taste a little weird at first, but the benefits it offers are incomparable.
1. Helps digestion: Apple cider vinegar "helps digestion by stimulating the salivary glands in the mouth," says Patricia Bragg, a representative of the NA Ph.D. It also increases the amount of stomach acid - and that's a good thing, because foods cannot be completely digested if the amount of stomach acid is not enough.
2. Soothes sore throat: Drinking a little apple cider vinegar helps to balance the weight level in the throat. Vinegar kills bacteria, clears phlegm, making breathing easier.
3. Lower cholesterol. A 2016 study proved that the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar significantly lowers cholesterol and keeps triglycerides at the right level. Drinking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily will help you maintain satisfactory cholesterol levels.
4. Stabilizes blood sugar levels: Apple cider vinegar is an ideal ingredient for all those affected by diabetes. A number of studies have also been conducted on this fact, which have reached a conclusion - apple cider vinegar lowers glucose levels, if drunk after consuming a meal. It is also said to keep blood sugar levels under control in the morning if you drink it at dinner before bed.
Apple cider vinegar has many other benefits (such as weight loss), but for some of them there must be scientific evidence.
If you start adding apple cider vinegar on a daily basis, it is best to ask your doctor first. Diluting vinegar with water is also recommended, because it contains a lot of acid that can also affect tooth decay. Mix one to two tablespoons of organic vinegar with water. You can add a little honey to this mixture to make it taste a little sweeter.
