Magic Poison - Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar

Every modern girl searches for DIY or at home remedies that can give them similar results as the expensive stuff. You don't grow that bank account by spending more than you should on pricey beauty products! So in the search for a fix-all product that can be found in your pantry, we stumbled upon the amazing, almost magical, apple cider vinegar (ACV). 

Now we don't pretend to be the first people to report the benefits of apple cider vinegar. However, there are some true statements, and some less true. So here it is! The real benefits of apple cider vinegar - The "Magic Poison". 

First off, drinking the vinegar is the best way to get the most accurate results. And be careful when ingesting! In large doses, acetic acid (in apple cider vinegar) is a poison. 1 to 2 tablespoons added to one glass of water is all it takes. Drink right before eating. 

On to the benefits:

1) Increases the benefits of vitamins in your food

By adding the acid in ACV to your diet, absorption of nutrients as well as B6, folate, calcium, and iron is increased. Be able to reap the full benefits of that delicious smoothie or salad!!

2) Feeling Puffy?? ACV reduces bloating!

Vinegar increases the acidity in the stomach, which allows it to digest the food you've eaten and helps propel it into the small intestine

 3) Endurance - ACV helps your muscles produce more energy 

Drink diluted vinegar before you carb-load the night before competing. Acetic acid can help the muscles turn carbs into energy! Extra fuel for that extra mile!

4) Stay fuller longer

Researchers found that people who consumed vinegar before eating a breakfast of white bread felt more satisfied 90 minutes after eating compared to people who only ate the bread.

5) It deodorizes smelly feet...

This one will come in handy when your man comes back from the gym. Use a paper towel dipped in diluted vinegar. The antibacterial properties of vinegar will kill the stink.
