How May Apple Cider Vinegar Support My Wellbeing?
If you’ve seen apple cider vinegar described in glossy magazines or talked about on television as ‘nature’s best-kept secret’, you can be forgiven in thinking that it is a recent innovation. In fact, drinking vinegar has been around for thousands of years, used in an attempt to cater for good health. It’s only relatively recently though that we’ve better come to understand their actual effects on our wellbeing. So let’s dive in.
How Apple Cider Vinegar Is Made.
Apple Cider Vinegar is created by the crushing of apples, which removes the juice. Yeast and bacteria are then added to the juice to start the fermentation process that sees the sugars of the solution turn into alcohol. Then a second fermentation process is started; with the alcohol being converted into vinegar. This occurs due to the presence of the acid-forming bacteria, known as ‘the mother of vinegar’.
So How May ACV Help A Person’s Wellbeing?
It May Rebalance The Body– Each day, whether through the foods and drink we consume or the environment we’re in, our bodies are exposed to toxins that may be of harm to our ongoing health, leaving the body unbalanced. The natural goodness contained within apple cider vinegar may help to bowel movement, eliminating these toxins, restoring its inner balance.
It May Support Digestion – The Mother of Vinegar doesn’t just help with the formation of ACV, it also contains a number of healthy enzymes which may help to normalise and maintain bowel movement and regularity, as well as promote intestinal activity. The Mother is often filtered from many vinegars to give the substance a more ‘appealing’ look – in order to experience as natural drinking vinegar as possible, it’s always best to look out for apple cider vinegar with the mother.
A Remedy Against Insects – Warm climates are always liable to attract insects looking for a food source (us), as such, insect bites are a fixture of the summer season. The pH balancing ability of ACV can help to soothe infected areas of the skin.
It May Improve The Condition of Hair – The natural pH levels of the scalp and the hair that grows from within it may be balanced by the acetic acid contained with ACV. With a balanced pH level, a person may be less likely to avoid hair dryness and eventual breakage. The acids and enzymes contained within apple cider vinegar and the mother may also act as a barrier against scalp conditions, such as itchiness.
It Works Well With Health-Giving Food – Eating great food will help to cater for a great body (and mind), but it often needs some protection itself before working its magic in the recipes we create. Cider vinegar has been used as a preservative and ingredient in food for thousands of years. Aside from the unique flavouring it can provide even the most well-known of taste experiences, its preservative quality helps to make food more acidic; treating any bacteria in food that may cause immediate spoilage.
