Each morning I wake up, I grab a banana and take a shot of apple cider vinegar. It gives me a rush, and immediately wakens me for the day ahead of me. I have read and heard from dietitians that a shot of apple cider vinegar each day is great for your body. While the acidity and the taste is tough to get used to, even after cutting it with water, the effect of the vinegar on my body and mental state is quite profound. I decided to read up on the health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar. Some of the things apple cider vinegar can do is help bad breath, body odor, stimulate weight loss, clear up acne, boost immune system, improve stamina, and help control blood sugar levels for diabetics. Cayenne pepper is the best thing I've found for curing sore throats, however apple cider vinegar works too.
I have made the mistake of taking some apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach, or taking too large of a shot, and this makes me stomach hurt for a while or gives me a queasy feeling. However, with a little food in your system and with the vinegar diluted with water or another type of juice the effects are great. Some days I just do not feel the need for a boost and I may skip it, or take it later in the day when I would like a pick me up. The vinegar also seems to keep me up at night if I take it too late at night.
After figuring out when to take the shot of vinegar each day, and when to avoid it, I have found it a great addition to my daily routine. I feel more alert, thinking more clearly, and in a better mood in general. While the stress of working still gets to me during the day, I feel more energetic and ready to tackle more tasks, or go to the gym later in the day when I do have my shot of apple cider vinegar. The vinegar itself is better the more natural or organic it is (which means the more expensive it is) but is very affordable. Since you are only taking one shot each day at the most.
I recommend everyone give it a try for two weeks, once you find a place for it in your dietary schedule, I am willing to bet you see some very positive results.
