 AppleCiderVinegar

 One extremely important component for overall health wellness, weight loss, and mental health, begins from the mechanics of what is going on inside your body. We are fortunate to have many options available that can help overall health & wellness. However, many products that claim to be good or helpful for your body are very misleading products that do little, to none of what they claim.  In fact, more times than not they do more harm than good. This is why the NUMBER ONE thing you can do for yourself is INSPECT WHAT YOU EXPECT to ensure the additions to your diet are truly beneficial for your INSIDES! 

At Beyond Weight-4-Life, our mission is to teach and guide you to EAT INTELLIGENTLY for YOUR lifelong health and wellness. Throughout your nutritional quest, one of the most influential additions to your diet is RAW APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Sadly, many individuals don’t know Raw Apple Cider Vinegar exists and what a tremendously positive impact this REAL FOOD “supplement” does for the inside of the body. No matter what your level of fitness or overall health goals are, this tangy little substance is a POWERHOUSE loaded with benefits for your body! 

5 REASONS TO IMPLEMENT RAW APPLE CIDER VINEGAR IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE

 

  • Stabilizes and balances your INNER body system 

Your body strives for balance. It wants to be in a state of alkaline equilibrium and works hard to achieve that. Drinking a shot of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline level.    

  • Aid in weight loss

Acetic Acid (a weight loss helper) is the main ingredient in Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. This     ingredient helps diminish accumulation of body fat and suppresses appetite.

  • Improves Stamina and Endurance

Since Raw Apple Cider Vinegar helps the body maintain and reach optimal alkaline PH levels, your insides are operating at their best. Although Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is very acidic outside the body, when consumed, your body recognizes it as a premier alkaline liquid. Therefore, your body is able to work far more efficiently. In turn, this allows you to perform at your best!

  • Improves Digestion

Drinking a few tablespoons of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar before each meal stimulates digestive juices. This allows better nutrient absorption during the digestion process. Your body can then metabolize and distribute all the nutrients accordingly using a lot less energy.

  • Regulates Blood Sugar 

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar slows down the breakdown of carbohydrates. Meaning, there is less of a spike in insulin. It creates an environment in your body that controls the release of all your nutrients at once.  

 

WHERE TO PURCHASE? WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?  AND HOW MUCH TO CONSUME

It is important when you purchase Raw Apple Cider Vinegar that it is “raw and unfiltered”. The bottle will state that exactly. Additionally, you will see some chunky, blob like pieces in the bottle that’s referred to as the “mother”. Don’t worry, that is where lots of the GOODNESS comes from! My personal favorite and Beyond Weight-4-Life approved is Bragg’s Raw-Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. You can purchase Raw Apple Cider Vinegar at Whole Foods in SLO, Lassen’s in Santa Maria and Albertsons in most cities, or order it online at Amazon. I order mine on Amazon, and it cost less there too!  Lastly, this is a VERY acidic liquid outside the body. You DO NOT want to sip it because of how harsh it can be on your tooth enamel and esophagus. It is best to start with 1 to 2 tablespoons, mixed with ¼ cup water and drink it all at once. Over time, once your body has adjusted you can increase the amount consumed. You will want to play with the amounts according to how your body feels. 

As you can see there are multiple reasons to include Raw Apple Cider Vinegar to your daily routine. A small amount per day is all it takes and you will immediately experience noticeable changes.  Many individuals have no idea how capable and fierce their bodies are designed to be.  Once you figure out what your body’s recipe for success is, you will unleash a part of your being that is more focused and capable than you every thought possible! Below are 3 recipe phases for adding a Raw Apple Cider Vinegar regimen to your day:

Beginner Shot Recipe:

2 tablespoons of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and ¼ cup water and 1 tsp warmed raw honey. Mix it all up and drink all at once. 

Intermediate Shot Recipe:

3 tablespoons Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and ¼ cup water. Mix it all up and drink all at once.

Advanced Shot Recipe:

¼ cup Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and ½ cup water. Mix it all up and drink all at once. 

Cheers to your Raw Apple Cider Vinegar quest!
