Do you believe in magic? I don’t. If you ask me, I’m all about science. Yet, science didn’t manage to reveal lots of secrets this beautiful world hides. You would think we know much about oceans, but the truth is a science still discovers new species in deep ocean depths.
But we won’t talk much about oceans here. We will talk about something that can be categorized as magic because science still didn’t discover all the benefits of it. And the best thing about it? It’s cheap and available to everyone.
Apple cider vinegar. When you search for the definition was it actually is, you get a shit load of unknown words, but I’ll tell you simply. Apple cider vinegar is the biggest gift nature could give to a human. If you ask me, or any other expert that has something to do with health, we will all say the same thing: You should drink it every single day.
What is Apple Cider Vinegar actually?
Apple cider vinegar is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice. It’s used for thousands of years through history for various reasons. It came somewhere from Babylon (I don’t know the facts, so I don’t want to give false information) and it was passed to ancient Greeks and Romans who made it a by-product of soured apple wine.
It has a very unique taste, which some people like, and some don’t. However, if you’re not sure, or you’re naturally picky, definitely get these apple cider vinegar gummies!
They are practically the same thing as ordinary apple cider vinegar, it just that Goli nutrition figured out that people will likely consume apple cider vinegar if it tastes amazing, which these gummies do!
Ancient people were using it to treat mushroom poisoning, toothache, and stomachaches. There is information that in the US Civil War and during World War I, it was used to treat wounds on the battlefield. Asian cultures, mostly Samurais were drinking it for strength and Romans were using it to save their health while conquering the Alps.
For thousands of years it was used for preserving food and today we even use it for cleaning products.
However, since we developed science we discovered that apple cider vinegar can make significant changes in individuals’ health. We will talk more about these benefits a bit later.
There’s still going on the discussion about what apple cider vinegar ACTUALLY is. Well, here’s a myth that will tell you what exactly apple cider vinegar is.
“Apple cider vinegar has a lot of nutrients”
Not true. It doesn’t have a lot of vitamin A, it doesn’t have a lot of vitamins C, it doesn’t have a lot of minerals. What it does have is something even more important.
In fact, the real reason why apple cider vinegar works for so many conditions is that it has acetic acid. And the reason WHY it works is that many people’s bodies are too alkaline. And I know that goes against many philosophies out there, but the truth is we don’t need our bodies to be alkaline!
A simple explanation about pH
So you probably heard a lot of information about “pH”, and I get it, it’s way complicated. So I spent about a week learning everything about it in order to make it as simple as possible, so everyone can understand it, and here it is.
pH is a simple scale that measures acidity from 0-14.
0 is super acidic, and 14 is super opposite – alkaline.
So we have to talk about pH factor here because many experts out there don’t know this, but your body should tend more to be acidic than alkaline. The majority of people are alkaline and that’s actually not good as most of them think it is. Also, your pH depends on the part of the body we are talking about. In this case, we will talk about blood pH which is the most accurate indicator of body pH.
Unfortunately, it’s very hard to determine the blood pH because as soon as your blood gets in contact with air, it oxidizes and it gets different pH.
The state of the body being too alkaline is called alkalosis, and symptoms are:
- Hand Tremor
- Muscle twitching (notice the muscle under the eye twitching)
- Nausea, vomiting
- Numbness or tingling in the face, hands, or feet
- Prolonged muscle spasms (tetany)
Can you resonate with any of those?
The worst thing you can do you have any of these symptoms is to drink alkaline water because it will make it worse.
Instead: You should drink apple cider vinegar. Why?
Because apple cider vinegar brings back the body to a more acidic state. It’s true that your blood should be slightly alkaline but it often becomes too alkaline.
And that’s why apple cider vinegar works so well in making changes. If you manage to change the pH of your body a slight bit with apple cider vinegar you can create huge effects, because pH is so important in transporting minerals, allowing enzymes to work, stimulating the thyroid, increasing metabolism, etc.
All health and weight loss benefits
There are certain types of foods that always give me heartburn. So if you are like no worries, it’s perfectly normal for our bodies to be intolerant to certain types of foods. But if that number of foods is like 10, or you randomly have heartburn, that that is a sign of alkalosis.
It’s a mistake drinking baking soda to kill heartburn. I know, it works like a charm, but it’s temporary, as soon as you eat again you will have heartburn again. Drinking baking soda to kill heartburn is just like sodas having zero calories. Just too good to be true!
Your stomach acid should have a pH 1-3, which is extremely acid. If that number goes up, your acid becomes too alkaline, causing your muscle on top of the stomach (valve) not to close properly, which results in acid going up. What you should do instead of drinking baking soda is drinking apple cider vinegar, because it will get your acid to the normal pH level and your valve will properly close.
You need your stomach acid to be pH 1-3 because only then it kills the bacteria you eat with food. On the other side, your pancreas is making sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to neutralize the acid in the digestive tract. That way it protects your digestion system from being burned up from the stomach acid. We were never meant to have sodium bicarbonate in our stomach!
After 7 days of drinking apple cider vinegar, you will get rid of the heartburn and GERD permanently.
When you have a normal pH level in your body, your cells are communicating fat better than when you are alkaline. Minerals are being transported properly, enzymes are working as they should be, the thyroid is being naturally stimulated to work, and your metabolic rate increases.
It suppresses appetite
So you have a hormone in your body called leptin.
Fat cells in your body use leptin to tell the brain that you are full.
Know that feeling when you ate something huge and still feel hungry? Well, that’s the sign that your body is leptin resistant.
So basically leptin is being produced in your fat cells. Overweight people have a lot of fat in their fat cells, which means they have a big amount of leptin in their body. Therefore, stored fat should be used as energy, but why do overweight people keep eating even though they are overweight?
Because the brain doesn’t “see” that leptin that needs to tell him “Hey, we are full, we have plenty of energy stored, we can start burning“. Why it doesn’t see the leptin? Because it adapted to the state of having too much leptin.
Since your brain can’t count on leptin, which is a master hormone of body weight, you need to use an alternative – apple cider vinegar.
By drinking ACV you bring your stomach pH back to normal, and that will cause closing the valve and signaling the brain that your stomach is closed for business.
When you start losing weight, you will also reduce your leptin level, which will result in getting back to normal – your brain will respond normally to leptin signals.
Reduces blood sugar
ACV is shown to be an amazing solution in increasing the efficiency of insulin and breaking down the sugar.
It can also prevent insulin resistance, which is a symptom of pre-diabetes.
There was a study that has shown that apple cider vinegar reduced blood sugar by 34% after eating 50 grams of white bread. Also, there were numerous studies that shown how beneficial ACV can be for diabetics.
If you’re currently taking blood-sugar-lowering medications, consult with your doctor about apple cider vinegar intake.
If not, start using it now!
About weight loss
Studies and personal experiences have shown all benefits of apple cider vinegar. But what is the thing when it comes to weight loss?
Myth: You just need to drink 2 tbsp with water a day and you will lose weight.
If you are not careful with your diet, if you have a high carb intake, if you goof around and are not being serious about it, you will not lose weight. Apple cider vinegar will help you preserve your health, but no, it will not burn fat for you.
There was a study that showed that people who drank 2 tbsp (30ml) of ACV per day and had a normal diet lost 3.7 pounds. In 3 months. So it works. But you can’t rely on it to be magic. It’s science.
However, if you are serious about it, and you actually follow your diet and workout, then apple cider vinegar will boost your result. So it pretty much goes like this:
ACV: “You won’t do anything about that belly fat? Fine, me neither. When you decide to get in shape, let me know, and I will help you like no one can!“
It’s a must ingredient in fat burning detox drink.
Apple cider vinegar is one of the healthiest remedies nature gave us. It’s not full of minerals or vitamins, it’s simple acetic acid. Apple cider vinegar will get your body out of alkalosis which will cause better mineral transportation, enzyme working, and communication with the brain. It keeps your heart safe, it helps your insulin to break down sugar, and it’s good for your overall health. It will help you lose weight if you start working to lose weight, but it will do nothing without you.
