What are the benefits of apple cider vinegar?

One of the first things to keep in mind while using apple cider vinegar is if you are using the right kind of vinegar in the first place. What you typically get in the market is a processed variety which is sparkling white and pretty to look at, but leached of most of its nutrient value.

Apple cider vinegar should ideally be used in its organic and unfiltered form. This will be a liquid with a brownish tint in which you may find a cobweb like substance floating around. Try and verify if you are getting the right kind of vinegar before making a purchase.

Apple cider vinegar has been used for thousands of years to heal a wide variety of ailments. It is said to have application in all of the following:

  1. Joint pains
  2. Fungal and bacterial infections
  3. Potassium deficiency
  4. Obesity
  5. Maintaining a youthful appearance
  6. Constipation
  7. High Cholesterol
  8. high blood pressure

It is very rich in vitamins and minerals containing beta carotene, potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, pectin, sulphur, iron and fluorine.

Pectin is said to help in the reduction of bad cholesterol and it also helps regulate blood pressure. Potassium deficiency can result in hair loss, weak and brittle finger nails and teeth and sinusitis all of which may be relieved by taking apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar also helps in the absorption of calcium leading to stronger bones.

Apple cider vinegar is said to dissolve uric acid accumulated in joints thus giving relief in joint pain. It also apparently helps in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic rate. If you can get over its somewhat astringent taste, apple cider vinegar is a good addition to your arsenal of nutrients to help fight disease.
