Wonders of Apple Cider Vinegar

Posted Apr 21 2010 10:24am 1 Comment

Apple Cider VinegarApple cider vinegar has been used for its powerful cleansing, healing and germ fighting abilities since the Ancient Greek civilization. An interesting fact about apple cider vinegar: it was actually discovered when a case of wine got too old and fermented into a vinegar product. Since then, people have been using apple cider vinegar as a food, supplement and medicine.

The positive benefits of apple cider vinegar continue to exist today as research has shown that it can support numerous health conditions including weight loss, cholesterol and blood pressure. In addition, apple cider vinegar may also help to treat allergies, sinus infections, sore throat, acid reflux, arthritis and eczema.

Weight loss is by far the most popular use. Continue use of apple cider vinegar may improve bowel irregularity, consequently removing toxins from the body at a faster rate, curbing appetite and speeding up the metabolism, thereby helping to burn off excess fat.

Apple cider vinegar is made from cider or by crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid. It is very high in fiber and, since fiber provides the body with indigestible bulk, supplements that are high in fiber make you feel fuller and therefore you will consume fewer calories.

A report in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that apple cider vinegar helps to control blood sugar and insulin levels following a carbohydrate-rich meal, and also it does indeed help to create a feeling of fullness. After ingestion of the recommended dosage followed by a carbohydrate-rich meal, the sense of fullness was more than doubled.

ACV has indeed many benefits. I've been reading a lot of articles about it and all I can say is it can be considered a wonder natural remedy. It can also be used to treat STDs like genital warts. Although some turn to cream treatments like Oxyfend because of the smell and slight smell, ACV has proven to be really effective.
