BENEFITS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
As a result of being "called out" or "called to the carpet" for being delinquent on blogging by 1 1/4 years, I've been EXTRINSICALLY motivated to start again, health blogging that is. With that said, in the words of Budweiser, "Edwin, this one's for you, Hun!"
Although I thought I'd posted a review on the benefits of ACV (apple cider vinegar) I can't locate it and have been inspired to repost because even though I may have touched in the skin regimine benefits of using it topically, I may have skipped the INTERNAL BENEFITS, especially when it comes to lowering BLOOD PRESSURE.
HOW TO USE:
1-Choose a raw apple cider vinegar that is cold-pressed, fermented, unpasteurized and made from organic apples. This will ensure it has the highest possible mineral content. Raw ACV is high in potassium, an electrolyte your body uses to conduct electricity through your body. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, low levels of potassium are linked with high blood pressure, but only if you are slightly potassium deficient. Talk to your doctor before adding any potassium supplement to treat high blood pressure.
Combine two tablespoons. of ACV with eight ounces of filtered water and drink three times daily. If the taste of ACV is too strong, you may add fresh lemon juice. If you prefer a warm drink, you can add ACV to hot water to make a tea. You may add a natural sweetener, such as honey, agave or stevia -- but make note of the extra calories, and avoid adding honey or agave if you have diabetes.
3-Add raw apple cider vinegar to condiments such as salad dressing and mustard to get more ACV into your daily diet. Try to take ACV before each meal, so that it aids in digestion, as well as lowers blood pressure.
