Apple Cider Vinegar

What if I told you there is a miracle food that has been around for thousands of years that can ease the pain of your arthritis and make your skin glow? What if I told you that food was Apple Cider Vinegar?

My dad told about a relative of a coworker who was crippled by arthritis until she started drinking “shots” of vinegar each day. Her arthritis was no longer an issue for her and her skin was like a newborns. I had to look this up!

From my research I have learned that it is recommended to mix 2 Tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar into a glass of water and drink once or twice a day.

Here are some benefits listed on the blog, Eating Bird Food.

  • Rich in potassium, a mineral that is often times lacking in adult diets. This mineral is key for growth, building muscles, transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity etc. It also helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses.
  • Rich in acetic acid. This acid is said to slow the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
  • It can help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
  • It can help clear up skin conditions and blemishes.
  • Apple Cidar Vineger helps with weight loss by breaking down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them.

Also on Eating Bird Food, she has a daily Apple Cider Vinegar recipe that isn’t too bad. I just tried it this morning.

Daily Apple Pie Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons all natural apple juice
  • 6 ounces of cold water
  • 4 drops of vanilla liquid stevia (I used actual vanilla extract)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1-2 cubes of ice (optional)

One more thing to note, if you try this, it has to be the raw, unfiltered version not the kind most of us probably have in our cupboards.

So, what do you think? Are you going to try this?

    I love Eating Bird Food’s blog, but this was a new post to me! I have heard of the wonders of apple cider vinegar as a beauty product (instead of shampoo) and I am interested to try some of these tips for better nutrition.

    I also tried taking 1 shot of apple cider vinegar per day during my arthritis days. I had arthritis for several years and I’ve tried different types of medication too. I didn’t want to be dependent on painkillers and anti inflammatory gels forever. I wanted to have a normal life. I just can’t afford to have an injured knee for the rest of my life reason why I never stopped looking for better solutions. Ever since I finished my stem cell therapy with my orthopedic surgeon, Dr Grossman, I never had serious problem with my knee again. I guess that treatment worked for me (fingers crossed). I hope you get better too.
