I love ACV. Ive been drinking it straight for about 6 months now.
I do a shot every morning followed by 12oz of water.
I feel like it flushes my system of toxins and gives me a slight energy boost to start my day. It also has a lot of well known properties for keeping the body in tip top shape and I will take any edge I can get as long as its natural...So then began my ACV fixation!
I first started to use it a couple years ago whenever I would get sick since its effective in killing off certain types of bacteria, I actually ordered it in a shot at juice places (they mix it with other good for you bacteria killers) and boom! If I got sick I would get my "shots" and get better within a couple days. I then started to really see the magic of natural homeopathic remedies and health. It became a fascination of mine to learn more about natural remedies and who the body worked.
So a few awesome things about ACV:
-You can use it as a cleanser for surfaces in your home
-You can use it as a face mask when mixed with mud or clay (meant for the face) and it detoxifies and gets rid of acne causing bacteria
-You can drink straight to help manage weight loss (though slight in weight loss it still helps)
-You can drink it when your sick to help make you feel better (still consult with doctors if sick this is not a health claim)
-naturally detoxifies the body
-Some studies have shown that ACV can help with the prevention and reducing cancer cells from forming (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15630260/)
-"Apple cider vinegar may also contain the antioxidant chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to protect LDL cholesterol particles from becoming oxidized, a crucial step in the heart disease process" as a source says
And it can slightly boost energy levels!
