Loving your Gut with Apple Cider Vinegar
We’ve all heard the buzz word of “Apple Cider Vinegar” thrown around the health and wellness world. We assume it’s good for us but is it just another fad? Well I’m here to tell you it ain’t!
This amazing elixir should be a part of your daily routine for optimal health. Why? Well let’s go through that now.
Before we get down to the nitty gritty let’s make one thing clear – you MUST have Apple Cider Vinegar with THE MOTHER (so important), this is a complex structure of beneficial acids & beneficial gut bacteria which will have your tummy loving you till the end of time.
Top 5 Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
- Balances your body PH Levels – ACV is the only vinegar that is NOT acid forming – once digested it is alkaline forming in the body. Balancing your bodies PH levels reduces the risk of illnesses, infections and canradically increase your energy.
- Reduce those sugar cravings – ACV helps stabilise your blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity – what does that mean for you? No reaching for the sugary and starchy carbs for your 4pm pick up!
- Digestive Aid – As ACV is acidic in nature it can be extremely helpful as a digestive aid. When taken before meals it can help to avoid those sometimes embarrassing ‘digestive disturbances’ (bloating, gas, reflux etc.)
- Normalise intestinal bacteria – ACV contains beneficial acids which is important for the balance of your intestinal flora. The acids in ACV such as acetic and malic acid are thought to have antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties meaning those ‘nasties’ in your stomach don’t stand a chance!
- Strengthen your immune system –As previously mentioned, around 80% of your immune tissue is located within your digestive system. The gut is usually the starting point for illness to start. If you’re nourishing your gut with the amazing health benefits of ACV- guess what? Your immune system will notably improve!
Ok! So we’ve heard all of the good things but you’re still thinking – “I’ve tried it… BUT THE TASTE! YUCK”! (I agree – it’s not the tastiest thing out there.)
The good news is – Bioglan have now created Apple Cider Vinegar in capsule form (and YES they contain the mother).
I take 1 tablet 3 times daily before every meal and my tummy and overall health has never been better.
Happy ACV trying people!
