Do you know of a borderline magical concoction that not only fights lethal diseases such as diabetes and cancer, but also lowers cholesterol and reduces belly fat? To most this sounds like a miracle drug. A distant fantasy in a land of everlasting rainbows and unicorns. However – as you will soon get to know – this “Miracle Drug” has been sneakily hiding right under the tip of your nose for decades!
What am I talking about? Apple Cider Vinegar of course! Shocked? Well don’t be, I’ll explain it all to you in this very article! Firstly, how is it made? Well, it’s basically made like an apple wine. But hold your horses there cowgirl! I know (from personal experience of course) that drinking wine every single day ain’t really the epitome of health for a human being. Thankfully the alcohol has been broken down even further into acetic acid, which happens to be the main component in apple cider vinegar.
Now you might be thinking to yourself: “apple cider vinegar??? Really? I used to have that on my salad everyday but didn’t notice any of these remarkable health benefits!” But oh you see, there are rumors circulating the world of natural health remedies that the vinegar must contain the *mother* in order to fulfill its superfood prophecy. It kinda makes sense though; “with mother” basically means organic and unfiltered. Hey, at least it sound healthy (to my ears at least).
Bonus fact of the day: “vinegar” actually means “sour wine” in french!
So what does this “fake wine” do for you? Well for one it can help reduce your blood sugar levels and increase your insulin sensitivity. What does this actually mean? Your chance of getting diabetes will (probably) be lower! Another great benefit: it helps you lose weight. Yes you read that right, apple cider vinegar has been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss. There’s just one party-pooper here: aid. As much as I would love it if it did, the vinegar won’t magically shed off those love handles and turn you into a greek goddess. You need to do the hard work yourself. But as the reviews on this vinegar (which also contains the mother) says, many people have experienced VERY pleasant results from incorporating ACV in their diet!
Lastly some studies have shown that consuming ACV can slow down the growth of cancer cells and even shrink tumors! It probably won’t cure you of cancer if you happen to be suffering from that horrible disease, but it definitely won’t hurt if you do.
So there you have it. Who knew that apples really do keep the doctor away!
