This miracle drink Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is what got my blood sugar levels back to normal several years back. My doctor was shocked and wondered how I managed to bring it back to normal. So were my family and friends! Well, I must confess I also changed my lifestyle, watched what I ate, exercised and drank this super health tonic. I am back to normal and still continue with it.
I see so many suffering from various ailments, hence I could not resist but share my experience. One tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar in luke warm water on an empty stomach is a sure shot detox and healant. It can help stimulate cardiovascular circulation and help detoxify the liver.
For weight loss ACV will certainly aid it. For daily weight management, add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 16 ounces of water. This concoction can be sipped throughout the day. Data shows that a daily sustained intake of acetic acid, main ingredient in ACV has proven good results. In a 2009 study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry, it was found that subjects that consumed acetic acid for 12 weeks experienced significant declines in body weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference and triglycerides. Triglycerides contribute to the bad cholesterol that we want to avoid.
If you are immunities are weak, sip some a few times a day for a natural boost of energy. It works like magic.
ACV can balance your entire body’s internal system. The body constantly strives to achieve a state of equilibrium. ACV helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline pH level. Research shows that higher acid levels (lower pH level) leads to a lack of energy and higher incidences of infection.
As for your lymphatic system.....This miracle vinegar helps to break up mucous throughout the body and cleanse the lymph nodes. Believe it or not, research suggests that apple cider vinegar can help with allergies because of its ability to reduce mucous and sinus congestion. When reducing the effects of allergies, it can also help stave off sinus infections and their related symptoms, such as sore throats and headaches.
ACV can help reduce heartburn: Though it might seem like an oxymoron to treat stomach acid with an acid-containing vinegar, there is research suggesting that apple cider vinegar works by correcting low acid, hence reducing heartburn. Natural remedy experts say you should begin to feel relief very shortly after taking a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar followed by a glass of water. Note that apple cider vinegar will not give relief if you have an ulcer.
For foodies like me who love cooking ...add a tablespoon of ACV into your dals, curries,if you are cooking chicken, mutton, it will aid in cooking the meat faster bring out all the nourishment from the bones which otherwise remains locked in.
Over the years now, I have been recommending this to people coming in my path with various ailments. For them it is a MUST have. In India you can get some good brands at organic outlets. The organic brands best recommended are Bragg. Last option resort to Heinz, it not organic, not so effective but to start with its ok.

But here in London, I find a brand called Ostlers ‘Cloudy Cider Vinegar’ which is raw, unpasteurised containing ‘The Mother’ which is full of good living bacteria and active enzymes. It has a far soothing effect, rather smooth when compared to the one’s that I have been buying in India!
However, I've since discovered so many other useful ways to incorporate apple cider vinegar (ACV) in my lifestyle. It's effective for pretty much anything—good for your skin, your hair, the best chemical free spray for your house, and useful to remove fleas from your pets who can benefit from its nourishing properties.
And whilst researching, I find this article in Huffington Post that sings AVC's praises and endorses all that i shared above... http://huff.to/169qTkJ
