I get excited about superfoods or super nutrient dense or healing foods. Ya, it all makes sense when you know how much of a health nut I am.
Today I want to honour one of the most healing foods that just may already be in your kitchen cupboard. If you haven’t heard of Apple Cider Vinegar, the time has arrived.
Apple cider Vinegar is reported by many people to heal maladies such as Eczema, joint pain like Arthritis, poor digestion that results in bloating, constipation and obesity and it also encourages fat loss in conjunction with a whole food clean eating plan.
One of my clients came back to me after I gave her a apple cider vinegar protocol and not only lost 30 pounds in 8 weeks, but also reported she completely healed her ulcer! The pain disappeared and her digestion had never been as good.
Now that is the power of natural healing!
It also is one of the best things to ingest when you want to detoxify and cleanse out your body. You can receive my free Detox and Cleanse 101 primer here. Taken first thing in the morning, will jumpstart your detoxification system and rev up your metabolism getting it in gear for the rest of your demanding day.
3 things that are very important when buying your Apple Cider Vinegar:
1) Buy only in a glass bottle. Plastics contain chemicals that may leech out into the vinegar, and will thus negate any of the detox affects you will benefit from.
2) Buy only RAW apple cider Vinegar. The label should read raw or unpasteurized, meaning it wasn’t boiled to death which kills the natural live enzymatic activity of this amazing miracle food.
3) Buy only ORGANIC. Regular apples are one of the most “dirty” foods in the produce else. They are sprayed, sprayed and resprayed numerous times during the growth season. Staying organic keeps the detox affect at it’s most potent.
Here are the key reasons to be reaching for the bottle…
Helps you lose weight. Apple cider vinegar is great at helping the body utilize fat and it detoxifies the digestive system making you better at assimilating your food overall.
Increase your Metabolism leading to better energy levels. Work out with sustained energy and still have more than enough energy to get through the rest of your day.
Regulates the insulin or sugar levels in your body and may help diabetics get healthier.
Heals inflammation thereby helping those with auto immune diseases such as Arthritis, Lupus, and Chron’s and Colitis conditions.
Boosts the Immune/Lymph system
Detoxifies and cleanses your body from toxic build up coming from your food, non organic products, air you breath and clothing you wear. Toxins are lurking everywhere. Receive my free Detox and Cleanse Primer here
Lowers blood pressure. Some animal studies have reported a significant drop in blood pressure when taken on a regular basis. Those with heart disease would greatly benefit with apple cider on their team.
And so much more! You can put a tablespoon in your hair after you shampoo it as a balancing rinse and will make your hair shine.
You can use it topically on itchy skin, mosquito bites and to heal acne and acne scarring.
I love putting a tablespoon in half a litre of ice water and a few drops of Stevia, and drinking it during and after my hard workouts. It really helps quench the thirst and helps with electrolyte balance.
I could go on, but there are more missions we must conquer today 😉
