One of the most versatile household ingredients, apple cider vinegar, is abundant in health benefits. For one thing, it boosts your metabolism while reducing blood sugar levels. By regulating your blood sugar, ACV actually lowers insulin secretion in your body.
When it comes to weight loss, this common kitchen ingredient is extremely beneficial as it contains acids and catalysts which not only promote fat-burning, but also suppress appetite, all of which leads to weight loss.
According to Catherine Champagne, a scientist at Louisiana State University Pennington Biomedical Research Center, only a small reduction in body weight can considerably improve your health on many levels – it improves your heart rate, reduces bad cholesterol, and keeps your glucose levels balanced. Plus, the risk of many serious diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer decreases by large.
The amazing health benefits of ACV were known since ancient times. In fact, it was in the scripts of the ancient Babylonians of 5,000 years ago that the health benefits of apple cider vinegar were first mentioned.
THE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DIET
The best thing about this drink is that it’s extremely beneficial, as well as easy to make. Simply, add 1-3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of lukewarm water. You can also add a teaspoon of honey. For optimal weight loss results, drink this twice a day, before breakfast and before dinner.
Also, be sure to use organic, unpasteurized and unfiltered ACV, which is easily distinguishable by the grainy substance at the bottom of the bottle. In fact, this grainy substance is called the ″mother″ and it packs all the essential nutrients.
Taking this easily prepared home remedy will curb your unhealthy food cravings while stimulating the fat-burning process.
There are other ways how you can incorporate ACV in your diet. For example, you can add vinegar in your coffee, tea or soft drinks, but be aware that such mixtures can be far more acidic and your stomach may not be able to this. Alternatively, add a few tablespoons of ACV in a bottle of water and take this everywhere you go. This is extremely convenient and beneficial at the same time, as you will be able to drink this fat-burning recipe throughout the day.
NOTE: Be cautious not to consume undiluted ACV because it’s highly acidic. The strong acids can actually damage you tooth enamel as well as your stomach lining.
WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS
It only takes a couple of weeks to see the first results. In fact, this
recipe acts slowly, but effectively. During the treatment, you will
experience other health benefits apart from weight loss. For one thing,
your immune system will be strengthened, your digestion improved and you
won’t have the rebound effect most diets give.
