I speak on behalf of most people when I say that Apple cider vinegar is a food the majority have had in their household at some point in their lives.
Although most people have become acquainted with apple cider vinegar and its sharp and penetrating odor, it is the few that know the unknown properties of this highly underrated food.
A Hidden Treasure
Apple cider vinegar, apple juice is fermented to cider, after which it is acidified to vinegar and is most often used as an ingredient in a variety of dressings for different colorful salads. In addition to being a sour rescue for an otherwise boring pile of rodent green, apple vinegar has a number of positive and health-promoting qualities that could benefit many people. It does not taste good, but after reading this presentation, it will taste a bit better as you are now aware of the benefits that vinegar brings.
Here is a top 7 over a number of benefits of apple cider vinegar. I have attached links to my sources at the bottom of the page.
1. Apple cider vinegar lowers your blood sugar
It is scientifically proven that Apple cider vinegar can lower blood sugar by up to 33% when consumed.
It is a good news for all but especially people with type 2 diabetes.
When we eat, it breaks down after a while, and then gets into our bloodstream in the form of glucose. When the concentration of glucose rises in the blood, our pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin. The purpose of the insulin is to tell our cells that there is nutrition in the blood and that they should absorb it so that energy can get into our cells and the glucose can get away from the bloodstream.
People suffering from type 2 diabetes have a low insulin sensitivity, and some are insulin resistant. This means that the body must separate a much larger amount of insulin before the cells understand that they should take the food. Therefore, it takes longer for Type 2 diabetics to get nutrition into the cells, and therefore they often have a very high blood sugar compared to non-diabetics.
By consuming apple cider vinegar, there is an immediate improvement in blood glucose levels, which may fall by up to 33%. This happens because apple cider vinegar enters and increases insulin sensitivity, thus ensuring that the body is producing a smaller amount of insulin to nourish the cells. There are people who have managed to get rid of their pre-diabetes.
2. Better absorption of nutrients
In continuation of paragraph 1, point 2 will be added. I have just explained how apple cider vinegar improves insulin sensitivity. By improving insulin sensitivity, the uptake of nutrients improves. Insulin just acted as a spokesman for the cells who told them that now they just have to get started and absorb some of the glucose that is in the blood. It provides an obstacle-free and improved nutrient uptake.
3. Weight loss
There are studies that show that if you eat apple cider vinegar just before or in conjunction with a meal, most people will feel more saturated and for a long time. There are studies showing that people who drink apple cider vinegar eat 200-275 kcal fewer a day. The 1400-1925 kcal in one week. So there’s something to spare on that front.
In addition, there are other studies that show that by drinking apple cider vinegar, you reduce the amount of abdorminal fat, that is, fat on your stomach. So it’s just getting started drinking the dirt!
4. Improve skin
Apple cider vinegar contains a lot of good things. They include a variety of antioxidants. Antioxidants enter and prevent oxidation by capturing and harmless free radicals, which are the cause of oxidation. What oxidation may sound a bit difficult, so that everyone can join me, I just get an example of oxidation that everyone knows about.
We’ve all tried to take the first bite of an apple, lay it on the table after which we can watch some TV, read in a book or some third. When our attention comes back to the apple, we can see that where we have bitten the apple has become brown. The brown color is the result of an oxidation. This process is constantly in our body and, in order to keep the oxidation down, our body needs antioxidants. The more antioxidants the less oxidation.
By consuming apple cider vinegar, you reduce this oxidation, and our skin really likes it. So if you want to look and feel young and beautiful then eat / drink antioxidants.
5. Can kill cancer cells and diminish tumors
There are studies showing that Apple cider vinegar can have an effect on cancer cells and tumors. In some cases the vinegar may enter and kill the cancer cells and diminish a tumor. Here it is said that apple cider vinegar is not a medicine in itself, and of course, should not be in place of medical treatment. However, it does not hurt to make it a habit and you want to thank yourself later in life.
6. Can improve digestion
Apple cider vinegar has a good effect on digestion. This is because apple cider vinegar, besides containing antioxidants, also contains bacterial killers. In the intestines it seems like a probiotic bacterium. It may sound a bit dangerous, but it is not. If you’ve ever been drinking a Cultura drink yoghurt, you’ve got a lot of probiotic bacteria. The majority of the bacteria we have in the body are found in the intestines. Here there are both good and bad bacteria. Probiotic bacteria have the ability to help reduce the number of bad bacteria and improve digestion.
To achieve an effect, it is recommended to drink 1-2 teaspoons. Apple-edible leaf in a glass of water 2-3 times a day.
It is also recommended that the apple vinegar is organic and unfiltered. If you can not find one at your local supermarket, seek help at the nearest health store. There they can certainly help you. The price is between 25-40 kr.
At home we use Voelkel, which is both organic and unfiltered.
I hope my speech has given an understanding of why Apple Cider vinegar is a bit of an unknown superhero, which has a lot of health benefits. Also more than I have written here. It’s just getting started drinking it and experiencing the benefits of your own body.
