Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the best food products to have handy in your pantry at all times, and included in your diet in as many ways as you can think to incorporate it. Among its many gifts is being a good daily jumpstart to accompany your efforts to lose weight.
Let’s be clear here, though, right from the start.
First, we’re talking about Raw Apple Cider Vinegar – not pasteurized, or distilled white, or balsamic, or any other variety. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is the murky looking kind, with a film or even some floaty things at the bottom of the bottle. Therein, however, is the secret – all the valuable pro-biotics that aid digestion and otherwise help with body functions are in that residue, which is the natural by-product of fermentation. (You can search in this blog – abundantrawlife.com – for other articles about fermentation, a very health-producing process for vegetables). Raw Apple Cider vinegar can usually be found in grocery stores, but if you don’t find it quickly, your local health food store will certainly have it. It is also available on line.
Second, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar will be helpful in weight loss, but not if your diet remains sugar and junk-food laden, and includes processed foods. However, adding it in with an otherwise healthy diet, some moderate exercise, and adequate rest will help you with a gradual reduction in weight, which is the best way to do it. Your body will adapt readily to a new, healthier regime, and the weight will stay off.
So, why Raw Apple Cider Vinegar? It is full of organic acids and enzymes, which increase metabolism. It is also rich in enzymes, minerals, vitamins, pectin, and amino acids. Its potassium can help lower blood pressure by removing salt from the body, and its natural antiseptic and antibiotic compounds can keep you from becoming ill. Also, its acetic acid releases iron from the food you eat, sending more oxygen to body tissues, including muscles.
All of these compounds found in this wonderful natural food work together to bring you the following benefits. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
– Encourages the body to burn fat, rather than store it.
– Aids proper digestion, which can help removes stored waste in the intestines.
– Helps to suppress the appetite.
– Flushes toxins in the body.
– Lowers cholesterol levels.
– Reduces excess water in the body so you don’t feel so bloated.
– Helps to increase energy and build muscle.
