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?
