Wellness enthusiasts are raving over the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar Shots. Yes and to our surprise, this little ingredient can actually do wonders to your health and fitness levels. Many health experts and nutritionists are getting it to their client’s aid and almost all of them report promising results. People use ACV shots daily a few times or weekly depending on their preferences and needs. This salad dressing ingredient is not just an acid base to olive oil, it has more power than we had imagined.
The fermented apple juice is a great remedy as it is full of fibre, minerals and vitamins, which are good for the digestive system, skin and hair. We say that an Apple (cider vinegar shot) a day, can keep the doctor away.
Here are some more reasons why you should be using this kitchen staple:
Consuming ACV can help detox your body as it helps in the bowel movement. Also, it is known for its purifying properties. Over the course of time, we abuse our system by unhealthy drinking and eating habits. With the help of ACV you expect to cleanse your colon, liver, skin and hair too. This in turn can curb problems like acidity, bad digestion, body odour among others.
Hair and Skin
For preparing a hair mask, you could mix ½ tablespoon of ACV to a cup of cold water and rinse your hair with it after shampoo. For a skin mask, dilute one part ACV with two parts water and apply it to your face overnight or early in the morning before applying moisturizer. Your skin’s pH level is restored with this multipurpose ingredient. It can also sooth a sunburnt skin, a cup of ACV to a bathtub with a 10 min soak can be good ointment.
Weight loss is yet another one of the reasons why many people are opting ACV. Firstly, it decreases your appetite and makes you crave less of those sugar-coated foods. Also, the metabolism is known to rev up if you consume it daily. A study published in 2009 in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry
“…subjects who consumed acetic acid for 12 weeks experienced significant declines in body weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference, and triglycerides. Triglycerides contribute to the bad cholesterol that we want to avoid.”
Covering the entire body in different ways possible, ACV can be added to the massage oil for cleansing the pores of the body. It can be used as an after shave as well. Helping with sleep patterns, it is also noted that it creates a healthy pattern. Fatigue, focus troubles and anxiety, bid farewell to all of these when you are on ACV.
Do we need to say more??
Note: It is important that you consume ACV in the current quantity and the right way. Start with mixing 1 teaspoon to 8 Oz. of water and you can take the concoction twice in a day. If you are looking for weight loss and ready to take the pungent taste on, you could double the quantity as well, i.e. 2 teaspoons to 16 Oz. of water.
