10 Reasons Apple Cider Vinegar Is the Remedy For Everything But Death



Raw, organic, unpasteurized and unfiltered ACV is one of the most amazing things you can find! Below, you have a list of 38 proven benefits and uses of apple cider vinegar you have probably been unaware of:

FOR HEALTH

1. Has Cancer Fighting Properties

The worst thing about cancer is that its symptoms don’t manifest until it reaches a stage where there is little that can be done to cure it.  Cancer is the 4th cause of death in the USA and in 2014, there were more than 1.6 million Americans which were tested positive for cancer. Sadly, there were over ½ million deaths!  I

It has been scientifically shown that apple cider vinegar can shrink and even destroy some types of cancer cells. According to a study conducted in China, the consumption of vegetables and vinegar reduces the risk of oesophageal cancer. However, a Serbian study has shown that the consumption of vinegar increases bladder cancer 4.4 times.

Taking into consideration these results, it can be noted that vinegar has anti-tumor properties but its effect is not the same in every type of cancer.

2. Candida

Candida is a type of parasitic bacteria which causes yeast overgrowth, leading to poor digestion, canker sores, yeast infections, and low energy.  Candida overgrowth is typical a result  of poor diet which is high in carbohydrates and refined sugar as well as overuse of antibiotics or birth control.

When treating candida, apple cider vinegar and lemon water are one of your best allies.  ACV promotes better digestion and balance in acidity/alkalinity, which in turn allows the healthy bacteria to thrive in the gut as they used to.

3. It is Rich in Acetic Acid

According to a Japanese study, acetic acid found in ACV helps may help regulate fat accumulation and blood pressure.  Acetic acid is not vinegar, but bacteria found in vinegar which is a byproduct of the fermentation.

During fermentation, acetic acid bacteria grow inside the vinegar and it turns into a nontoxic slime as the process goes along.

Some manufacturers remove this slime, known as the “mother” through a filtration process. However, you should opt for raw, unfiltered variety which contains the mother, as it is the one that gives ACV its specific flavor.  Wine vinegar contains about 5-6 percent of acetic acid while distilled vinegar contains 4-7 percent.

4. Disinfectant and Bacteria Killer

Even Hippocrates, the father of medicine, has used vinegar to treat wounds. These days, modern medicine confirms its ability to kill certain types of bacteria, such as S. auerus and E. coli. Even though it is less effective than Clorox, it is chemical-free and it is safe to use for washing produce.

5. Lowers Bad Cholesterol and Prevents Cardiovascular Diseases

Once the arteries become clogged by bad cholesterol, there is a big risk of cardiac arrest.  ACV contains chlorogenic acids which lower bad cholesterol, which in turn prevents its accumulation and crystallization in the bloodstream. However, it is important to mention that the research was only done to rats, meaning that it may not affect humans the same way. A study conducted on 70,000 women showed that an increased intake of vinegar and oil salad dressing lowered the risk of ischemic heart disease.

6. Detoxifying

Taking preventive measures and consuming protective foods into our diets is of utmost importance, given the fact that we are constantly surrounded by toxins.  The good news is that ACV contains unique acids which attach to toxins and flush them from the body easily. To release toxins, you can either consume ACV or add it into your bath along with some Epsom salts.

7. Helps in Losing Weight

A Japanese study found that acetic acid could prevent accumulation of body fat.  One test was done on mice and the rest on people.

The one done on mice involved feeding them a high-fat diet. One group was given acetic acid and one wasn’t.  At the end of the study, the one given acetic acid developed up to 10 percent less body fat than the ones that weren’t given acetic acid.

The test done on people involved 175 obese people who were divided into two groups. They were fed similar diet but one of them had vinegar and the other had plain water.  The results of the study showed that the group given vinegar lost 1-2 pounds.

8. It Can Help Type-2 Diabetics Improve Insulin Sensitivity

In a 2004 study done by the American Diabetes Association, three groups of people were given a solution of 40 grams of water, 20 grams of ACV, and a teaspoon of saccharine.  Two minutes after, they were given a meal which included orange juice, butter, and white bagel.

This study involved 29 participants with type 2 diabetes as well as non-diabetic people who are insulin resistant or insulin sensitive.  At the end of the study, it has been found that ACV increased insulin in type 2 diabetics by 19 percent and in insulin-resistant individuals by 34 percent.  Moreover, the type 2 diabetics improved their blood glucose levels by 25 percent.

9. Prevents the onset of Diabetes by lowering Postprandial Glycemia

Postprandial glycemica is a condition referring to increased blood sugar levels after a meal, which is a huge factor why pre-diabetes develops into type 2 diabetes. Pre-diabetes is the condition in which the increased blood sugar levels are not as high as in type 2 diabetes, but if left untreated, it can lead to diabetes over time.  The consumption of vinegar juice (20 grams of ACV, 49 grams of water and 1 teaspoon of saccharine) resulted in 35 percent decrease, according to a study.

10. Prevents Muscle Fatigue after Exercising

Mineral and electrolyte depletion are often manifested by muscle fatigue. Taking a tablespoon of diluted apple cider vinegar before a workout ensures that your body has enough electrolyte stores. When the pH of our bodies is balanced, it is easier for them to eliminate excess lactic acid and oxygenate the bodies during working out..
