A purifier, a detoxifier, arthritis relief, and help for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) are just some of the many health benefits of apple cider vinegar.
As a purifier, it breaks down fatty mucus and phlegm deposits in the body.
As a detoxifier, it breaks down, neutralizes and eliminates toxins in the body which therefore promotes good digestion. Apple cider vinegar also helps oxygen flow through the blood properly which prevents clogged arteries and blood vessels.
Potassium, an essential mineral, is abundant in apple cider vinegar. Deficiencies of potassium can lead to many complaints such as tooth decay, water eyes, and sinus trouble, splitting of fingernails and over abundance of mucus.
Potassium is so important in cell growth and to soft tissues much like calcium is for healthy bones and teeth.
Tests have shown where apple cider vinegar has been given to animals which proved to enhance their appearance and stamina. In humans, a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with water can possibly help children with slow development to grow. Also, the potassium can help calm excitability and nervousness in children.
Now let’s look at some Apple Cider Vinegar home remedies for some common ailments:
- Cough- Warm 2 teaspoons of the vinegar with 2 teaspoons of honey in a cup of water and drink 3 times a day, especially a bedtime.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome- 2 teaspoons of the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey mixed with a glass of water can be effective treatment. Take before meals to help with digestion. It neutralizes harmful foods that cause the problems.
