Somehow I've been dealing with awful stomach acid lately.. and I want to get rid of it without taking one of those Rennie tablets or other kind of chemical medicine..
Instead, I went to one of my favourite stores The Super Food Centre in Amsterdam and asked the guy beghind the counter what would be good for me to add to my diet to get rid of my stomach acid the natural way.
He directly pointed his finger to this Gorgeous bottle of Raw - Unfiltered Apple Cider! A spoon a day on an empthy stomach mixed with some water would kill the Acid! I've been drinking this now since the weekend and my nauseous and tummy aches are gone!! After doing some research (this sounds as if I'm a pro..lol) I found out that Apple Cider Vinegar is effective for pretty much anything to maintain your gorgeous looks! Your skin, your hair, your house, and even your pets can benefit from its qualities. Raw, organic unfiltered and unpasteurized, apple cider vinegar is so much more than a salad dressing! I just had to share this with you!
Trust me. You'll be amazed what it's all good for! What are you waiting for.. scroll down!
It can make your hair shine.
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a rinse for your hair after shampooing, and will boost your hair's body and shine. I recommend recycling an old shampoo bottle, then filling it with 1/2 a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a cup of cold water. Pour the solution through your hair after shampooing several times a week for dramatic results.
Natural apple cider vinegar regulates the pH of your skin.
Dilute ACV with two parts water, and spread the concoction over your face with a cotton ball to replace your current toner. You can do this at night after washing, and in the morning before you apply your moisturizer. A dab of apple cider vinegar can also be left on the skin overnight to fade age spots or acne scars.
It's also a recommended agent for warts. For warts, soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, then fasten the cotton ball over the wart with a Band-Aid overnight. The skin may swell some as it reacts with the solution. However, the wart will fall off. Once it falls off, the treatment should be continued for a few more days, to make sure the wart doesn't return.
It can remove stains from teeth.
Rub teeth directly with apple cider vinegar, and rinse with water.
It can soothe sunburnt skin.
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath, and soak for 10 minutes to eliminate discomfort from sunburn.
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural aftershave.
Fill a bottle with equal parts apple cider vinegar and water, and shake before applying to the face.
Apple cider vinegar can aid in weight loss.
For daily weight management, add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 16 ounces of water. This concoction can be sipped throughout the day. Data shows some limited, yet significant, weight loss benefits from sustained daily intake of acetic acid (which is a main ingredient in apple cider vinegar).
In a 2009 study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry, it was found that subjects that consumed acetic acid for 12 weeks experienced significant declines in body weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference and triglycerides. Triglycerides contribute to the bad cholesterol that we want to avoid.
Apple cider vinegar will balance your entire inner body system.
The body constantly strives to achieve a state of equilibrium. Apple cider vinegar helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline pH level. Research shows that higher acid levels (lower pH level) leads to a lack of energy and higher incidences of infection. Hence, my desire to sip some a few times a day for a natural boost of energy.
It can help you detox.
As part of balancing the body's pH, apple cider vinegar creates an overall detoxification of the body. Research shows that it can help stimulate cardiovascular circulation and help detoxify the liver.
It can help your body get rid of candida.
This vinegar is rich in natural enzymes that can help rid your body of candida yeasts that are attributed to thrush in humans. Candida also is blamed for creating symptoms of fatigue, poor memory, sugar craving and yeast infections.
SO yeah.. although my stomach acid is gone now.. I will keep on drinking this.. Oh minor detail.. it taste like old milk and looks like dark pee.. haha..so close your eyes and clam your nose..and BAM.. drink it! Make sure you don't eat after drinking it. Wait for at least 20 minutes!
Have a great day!
