Reasons why you should consume Apple Cider Vinegar in a daily basis:
It Can Help to Regulate Blood Sugar:
Various studies support the therapeutic effects of drinking apple cider vinegar, particularly those who are at risk for type 2 diabetes. The authors of the study noted that ingesting an apple cider vinegar drink at meal time increased satiety and reduced postprandial glycemia(elevated glucose after eating), both metabolic effects that may benefit those who struggle with prediabetes as well as diabetes.They found that taking two tablespoons of ACV in water just before bed lowered blood sugar levels an average of 4 to 6 percent by morning.
It Can Help Lower Blood Pressure:
There is also scientific evidence that ACV may help lower blood pressure, which in turn, decreases the risk of heart disease. ACV contains potassium, which is known to help balance the body’s sodium levels and maintain optimal blood pressure. It also contains magnesium, which helps to relax blood vessels walls, and ultimately lower blood pressure.
