Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink, Diet and side Effects
We Tried the Newest “Super” Drink to See What the Buzz Is About, Here’s What You Should Know
People are raving about the big health benefits that come with just a small daily dose of apple cider vinegar.
It seems like everyone’s on the hunt for the “next big thing” for better health. Coconut oil, chia seeds, and even bone broth have all enjoyed their time in the spotlight, and now there’s a new superfood—or rather, super drink—in town.
Many bold-faced names in the health world, from fitness expert Tosca Reno to detox pro Dr. Alejandro Junger, tout this natural home remedy as a wellness cure-all for a range of health issues, such as bloating, digestive distress, sore throats, and even acne. The best part? You likely have the miracle ingredient in your pantry.
“Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a wonderful fermented tonic with many health benefits,” says Tina Discepola, M.D., who practices functional medicine in New York. She drinks apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of water, chased by a half teaspoon of honey, and swears the concoction keeps her healthy: “I start every day with this slurry, and I know it has helped improve my digestion and boost my immune function over the past 10 years.”
While drinking vinegar (of all things!) may sound far-fetched, using ACV for medicinal purposes is not a new-fangled fad. As far back as 400 B.C., Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, treated his patients with ACV and praised it as a powerful cleansing and healing elixir.
There’s a lot of hearsay mixed with research-backed reviews of the actual science behind ACV’s health benefits, but here’s the top five proven reasons to add it to your daily routine:
1. Increase insulin sensitivity
This means that less insulin (a fat storage hormone) will be required by the body to digest carbohydrates, explains Chelsey Benzel, a holistic weight loss coach. “While the study was specific to diabetics, we can all benefit by keeping our insulin levels in check, as high insulin levels can lead to a host of health issues, like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, osteoporosis and even cancer.” Blood glucose levels, which are closely related to insulin sensitivity, have also been found to be lower due to vinegar consumption.
2. Balance the body’s pH
An alkaline pH can decrease risk of infection, increase energy, and prevent growth of unhealthy cells in our body (like cancer), Discepola says.
3. Soothe an upset stomach
The natural probiotic in ACV helps fight yeast (candida), so it helps with digestive disorders, as well as chronic sinus or bronchial infections, says Discepola.
4. Promote digestion
Altering thepH of your stomach will also make it easier to break down foods, which in turncan reduce acid reflux and bloating, says Benzel.
5. Help clear up your complexion… and more
Benzel, among other holistic health experts, say that it can help treat acne when ingested internally or applied to the face as a natural topical astringent. This home remedy can also be used to help alleviate muscle soreness, bad breath, and even banish warts.
So what can’t this super-elixir do? Unfortunately, it’s not a magic bullet to dropping those last ten pounds, despite the claims you’ll find online. Believing ACV to be a weight loss aid is false advertising, explains Discepola.”However, it does control the sugar released by the body after a meal, which in turn controls hunger. So long-term use may also help with breaking down fat in our digestive system.”
