A Time-Tested Remedy: Braggs ACV
Apple Cider Vinegar has been prized for its health benefits for centuries.
Hippocrates, the venerable father of medicine, extolled its beneficial properties as an antiseptic and medicine. Now, people the world over are rediscovering its many uses.
Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is, far and away, the most popular brand. This is partly due to the fact that the Bragg company has been selling its products since the roaring 20’s, but there are other factors that make Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar so popular.
This vinegar is completely Kosher and organic, and is certified by the USDA and Oregon Tilth. It is unfiltered, unheated, and unpasteurized, so all of the beneficial elements remain intact. In addition, Bragg ACV contains the “mother of vinegar,” strands of protein enzymes which are known to be an integral part of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar’s many wellness benefits.
Why All the Fuss About Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar?
Medical studies have shown that the health benefits of consuming Apple Cider Vinegar aren’t just old wives tales.
For one thing, evidence indicates that consuming ACV can help the body regulate glucose levels. This is of great benefit not only to healthy individuals, but even more so to those with diabetes.
One study indicated that 2 tablespoons of ACV before a carb-rich breakfast reduced the rise in blood carbohydrate levels (of the participants who were given the vinegar) by 34%!
There is also strong evidence that ACV is efficacious in preventing fat build-up.
The mice who were given ACV in this study showed a 10% fat reduction when compared to the mice who were given the same fatty diet, unsupplemented by ACV.
If you’re tired of your pet mice being so portly and lethargic, look no further (or try it out on yourself).
Studies have also indicated that half an ounce of ACV per day may help lower Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels. LDL’s are widely known as the “bad cholesterol”: the type that loiters around the walls of your arteries trying to cause trouble. Think of ACV as good apples, clearing out the bad ones.
