- decrease cholesterol

According to WebMD, the ancient Greeks even treated wounds with apple cider vinegar. In recent years, apple cider vinegar has been used as a way to lose weight, improve heart health and even treat eczema and dandruff. While research hasn't yet backed up most of these claims, some studies have found that the acetic acid in it may help with a variety of conditions, such as:
- Drinking vinegar might help fight obesity, according to Japanese scientists.
- Vinegar may improve blood sugar and insulin levels, according to a study of a group with type 2 diabetes.
Vinegar contains polyphenols, which may help stop cell damage that can lead to other diseases, such as cancer. Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains an element called mother, a cloudy substance made up of proteins, enzymes and good bacteria.
Perhaps the best way to incorporate apple cider vinegar into your diet is to use it in your cooking. You can easily add it to foods like marinades, sauces and salad dressings. You can even drink it, but because of its strong taste and smell, that's not so easy.
Every morning before I eat my breakfast, I mix up this healthy drink. Apple cider vinegar is not easy to get down, but this recipe might help!
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (organic, unfiltered with the mother)
- juice of half a lemon
- squirt of agave syrup or honey
- sprinkle of cayenne pepper
- warm water (not hot!)
Combine all ingredients in a glass. Drink through a straw to avoid damaging the enamel on your teeth. For maximum benefits, wait 15 minutes before eating anything.
