Here at Eat Clean Health, we’re big on flushing toxins out of the body. Build-up in the body leads to skin problems, weight gain, low energy, poor digestion, and a weakened immune system. Eating clean, physical activity, adequate sleep, and low stress all contribute to overall wellness, and for those looking for an extra kick, apple cider vinegar is simple, affordable way to alkalize the body, improve skin tone, metabolize fat, and flush toxins from the body.
When choosing Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), always opt for raw, organic apple cider vinegar, as it has ‘the mother’. ‘The mother’ contains enzymes, protein molecules, and bacteria; all beneficial to the body, specifically the digestive system.
ACV is extremely potent, so many people like to dilute theirs in water or salad dressing. Also keep in mind that ACV is extremely acidic, so be mindful of tooth enamel.
These are the 10 amazing benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar:
- Improves Digestion
- Prevents colds and flu
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Reduces Inflammation
- Kills Fungus
- Dissolves Kidney Stones
- Prevents Acne
- Balances pH levels
- Relieves allergies, migraines, and nausea
- Flush toxins and fat
Treating the numerous health concerns listed above can be as simple as sneaking Apple Cider Vinegar into your daily diet through water, smoothies, salad dressings, or even a plain ol’ shot!
