One of the very first things I do when I wake up is start my day with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in a few ounces of water. Why have I made this a daily habit for nearly 10 years now? Well the benefits are endless but the main reasons I start my day with it are because...
it boosts my digestion for the day ahead by increasing my gastric juices to help my body bread down food therefore, reducing bloat
It reduces acid reflux and heartburn
It gives my skin a nice glow as it fights against inflammation and wrinkles
It keeps my skin clear of acne
It stabilizes my blood sugar as it improves insulin sensitivity
It helps my body break down and metabolize fat
It improves the health of my hair
It balances my body’s PH
It helps protect me from viral infections such as the flu
Helps my liver detox and allows my lymphatic system to drain more easily
It helps lessen my allergy symptoms that can come on pretty strongly in the Spring
And the list goes on! I challenge you to wake up tomorrow morning and try one tablespoon of ACV in water and start experiencing the benefits yourself! Now, it is very important to make sure your apple cider vinegar contains the “mother” as this is unfiltered and containing enzymes and beneficial bacteria. If you aren't accustomed to it I will warn you that the taste is a bit strong and bitter at first if you aren’t used to it but feel free to add a few dashes of stevia or monk fruit to mask the taste. Within a few days, I can bet you will start to see what all the hype is about! Give it a try!
