ACV may not solve all of your health problems, but it is more beneficial than you think“–Paul Ebeling

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) might be a liquid but it is a superfood. The vinegar is commonly used in salad dressings and as a secret ingredient to liven up other dishes but there are so many more ways it can be used.

There are some studies that have found apple cider vinegar useful to those who are trying to lose weight. A tablespoon of ACV taken before a meal can make you feel fuller and end up eating a bit less than you normally would.

In addition to lowering blood sugar levels, ACV may be effective for people who are at risk of developing diabetes. This is why ACV could make a great supplement to your current diet and exercise routine.

Apple cider vinegar has scientifically proven in a small study to aid patients with type 2 diabetes and those with high blood sugar. ACV works to improves the body’s insulin sensitivity to meals that are high in refined carbs and sugars.

The Big Q: Could apple cider vinegar reduce the risk of developing heart disease?

The Big A: It’s possible. Animal studies have shown that ACV reduces blood triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure, which might be promising for future cases with humans.

Apple cider vinegar is often used in organic gardens as a natural weed killer. The acetic acid is strong enough to kill weeds on contact, making them wither up within a matter of days.

Some people use apple cider vinegar to detoxify and cleanse their lymph nodes. The acids in raw, unfiltered ACV bind to toxins in the body, helping it get rid of them faster. It also helps break up mucus and flushes out the lymph nodes for better circulation.

People have used apple cider vinegar as a natural pest control alternative. Bugs are deterred by the taste and smell of ACV. Spraying ant and other bug infested areas with ACV will keep them away. You can also set out a small dish of ACV where gnats and flies tend to linger.

ACV can help with heartburn symptoms, but its benefits to the digestive system go beyond that. Proper stomach acid levels are vital for both nutrient absorption and for proper digestion.

ACV can help improves your digestive health by upping healthy stomach acid production. Just drink one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed in 1 glass (8 oz) of water once a day, preferably before a meal and you should notice digestive benefits within days.
