While doing the research for my last blog, Awesome Apple Cider Vinegar, I had found a plethora of “magic powers” contained in this common kitchen staple…I shared ten amazing antidotes in my first post, and decided to continue with a Part II because Apple Cider Vinegar is truly awesome!
Prevent “restless leg” cramps at night
Nighttime leg cramping can be one of the most aggravating and painful episodes for sufferers—many times caused from overexertion or dehydration. Apple Cider Vinegar contains a hefty dose of potassium, which aids in cramping relief; mix one once of cider vinegar to a little warm water and a squeeze of honey to ease symptoms.
When bad breath isn’t your everyday “morning breath” and continues throughout the day, AND your doctor and dentist have ruled out a tooth problem, Apple Cider Vinegar may be the answer! Gargle and rinse your mouth with some cider vinegar, diluted with a little water if desired. The high acidity levels kill the bacteria in the mouth and throat and can eliminate the stink if your typical mouthwash isn’t doing the trick.
Teeth whitening naturally
Continuing with oral benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, it also helps eliminate stains on your teeth! Many products on the market are harsh on your tooth enamel, why not give some cider vinegar a try! Gargling and swishing eliminates stains and bacteria in your mouth when used regularly.
Bruise no more
Unsightly bruising of the skin are often caused by broken and inflamed arteries and veins. Apple Cider Vinegar has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, which when applied directly to the skin will initially change the color of the bruising, but will also help the area heal faster.
Improve blood sugar
Diabetics are extremely limited when it comes to acceptable food choices, making healthy eating difficult at times. Researchers have found that Apple Cider Vinegar prevents and slows down the body’s process of breaking down starches into sugar, which in turn helps positively affect and stabilize blood sugar levels!
Heart disease is the number one killer of American adults these days, therefore sending researchers and pharmaceutical companies into a tizzy in an attempt to find any mechanism to decrease fatality rates. Adding Apple Cider Vinegar daily into ones routine will help aid in lowering blood pressure, which is one of the leading stuggles of patients with cardiovascular issues.
Cancer is the number one killer worldwide, caused by many variables still unknown to scientists and researchers. Foods containing high levels of antioxidants are known to help prevent cancer from ever developing. Apple Cider Vinegar great amounts of polyphenols, also found in wine, which help prevent and reduce the risk, and fight free-radicals from forming in your body.
Soothe a painful sunburn
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, direct sun exposure can get the best of your skin quickly and result in a very painful burn. Apple Cider Vinegar’s anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties will astound you by how quickly and effectively they may extinguish that burn! Soak paper towels in cider vinegar and gently lay across burned areas; saturate cotton balls and carefully dab, dab, dab painful areas; or go ahead and take a relaxing and alleviating Apple Cider Vinegar bath…follow by applying some soothing aloe vera gel. You will wish you would have tried this remedy years ago!
