Why Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar has been used in cooking and as a medicine for centuries. It is made from fermenting sugar from apples, which then turns them into acetic acid. It is this acetic acid which is thought to be responsible for many of apple cider vinegar health benefits.
Acetic acid can kill harmful bacteria and as a result, people have been using vinegar to clean their homes and disinfect injuries for centuries. In fact, Hipprocrates, the ancient Greek physician regarded as the father of modern medicine, used the liquid to clean wounds more than 2,000 years ago.
What are the health benefits of apple cider vinegar?
As well as acetic acid, apple cider vinegar also contains a small amount of potassium and a number of amino acids and antioxidants.
Amongst the most important apple cider vinegar benefits is that it is thought to help diabetes sufferers manage the disease as it improves insulin sensitivity and can help lower blood sugar responses after meals. It can also help people lose weight as the consumption of apple cider vinegar makes you feel full meaning that you are likely to eat fewer calories throughout the rest of the day.
Another plus for this particular vinegar is that it can help with skin conditions like dry skin and eczema as it rebalances the natural pH of the skin. Some beauty therapists even recommend apple cider vinegar as a face wash or toner as its antibacterial properties are thought to kill bacteria and prevent spots.
