I want to give you a warning. It is dangerous not to use apple cider vinegar every day! Those who still do not use it are missing out on all its virtues. And I don’t mean using it only as a flavoring for our salads, no, I mean using it intelligently as a true natural remedy to heal our body. The problem is that to use it in this way you have to know its secrets, doses, what time of day is best, whether it is best to take it on an empty stomach at night, what foods it is best to mix it with. How can you control your sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides? Or how to use it to help you lose weight and control high blood pressure?
Hello everyone, I am Dr. Veller and today I want to reveal all this to you, but also tell you what care you should take, what are its risks and contraindications. As I always tell you, I want to teach you to bring quality of life, longevity and well-being in each of your dishes. Because food is true natural medicine. So how much is recommended and how best to use it?
Types of Apple Cider Vinegar
First, you who are looking at me, check what kind of apple cider vinegar you have in your kitchen, because there are two different kinds. Is this clear and transparent? Or is it this one with that cloudier appearance, with that substance or particles inside that when you shake it they remain floating in the vinegar? Pay attention because this is important. Most of the vinegars that you are going to buy in the market are clear, transparent, because they are filtered and pasteurized. There is nothing wrong with this, but there is another very special type called raw organic vinegar that is not filtered and contains this substance called mother. It’s like a sediment that gives it that look. This substance is very peculiar, it contains very healthy proteins and bacteria. That is why many experts consider this vinegar better, since it can act as a probiotic, that is, it would have additional benefits when consuming it. You would be contributing good bacteria to your intestine, improving your flora. These bacteria are like a protective shield for your body, they reduce chronic inflammation and are capable of improving many symptoms of fatigue and chronic fatigue, mood swings, chronic pain in muscles, joints. And they even have a protective effect on your heart, circulation and brain. The studies showing this are still in the early stages, but it is very encouraging. Now, if you can’t get the raw organic vinegar in your town, don’t worry. In any case, you will have many of the benefits that I am going to tell you about with common vinegar.
And how much should you consume? Well, the recommended dose is 30 milliliters per day. More than this, some adverse effects could appear. Each tablespoon of soup has between ten and 15 milliliters. That is, you can use 2 to 3 tablespoons per day depending on the size of your spoon.
Ways to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Health Benefits
Let’s see now the best ways to use it to help you lose weight, control diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol problems, among many others. There are two main ways to give it medicinal use. The first is to take it. For this you are going to dilute a tablespoon in 250 milliliters of water and so you can drink it with a straw or bombilla. Although for many this is not pleasant because they do not like the taste. And I am going to tell you at what time of day it is better to take it. The second way is with meals. You must mix in each of your dishes. And I don’t just mean mixing with the salad to give it flavor. You can use it in your rice, stews, meat and even bread if you like. The message here should be clear, do not use it only with your vegetables.
In this way you will be able to give it its medicinal effect. Now, how is it better to consume it? Fasting in the morning, with meals or at night? Well, this depends on the effect you want it to have on your body. Consider consuming a glass of water with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in the morning before breakfast tricks your brain. That is, it produces a communication between your stomach and your brain to make you feel satiety, a feeling of a full stomach. This makes you feel less hungry, helps you consume fewer calories throughout the day. So, if you are one of those people who is looking to avoid snacking, cravings, is reducing sugar consumption or simply wants to extend the fasting time, this is one of the best ways. On the other hand, consuming it during meals mixing the vinegar directly on your plate can also make you feel full faster and make you eat less. This has other benefits that I will tell you about right away. Another way is to consume it at night, either with meals or a glass before bed. If you have prediabetes or diabetes, this helps control spikes in high blood sugar the next morning when you wake up.
Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Let me now tell you three shocking benefits of apple cider vinegar and other secrets on how to use it. And since we’re talking about insulin resistance and type two diabetes, I’ll tell you that apple cider vinegar has many studies that support its effects. It has been shown in several investigations that it is capable of reducing the spikes in high blood sugar that occur after eating. Specifically, it is capable of reducing these high blood sugar spikes after eating by up to 30%, especially if you add apple cider vinegar to carbohydrate-rich meals. For example, you can add 10 to 15 milliliters of apple cider vinegar or a tablespoon to rice, sweet potatoes, stews, or any type of pasta to beans. This is also very helpful in people with prediabetes before it develops into diabetes. And what happens is that when you consume apple cider vinegar, carbohydrates are absorbed less and more slowly in your intestine. In addition, the components of vinegar act directly on your muscles and your liver, increasing the effect of insulin. In other words, it makes your pancreas have to work less. And as if that were not enough, if you consume apple cider vinegar at night, either during or after dinner, it will help you reduce blood sugar levels the next day, that is, when you wake up.
All these and also other effects and secrets we explain in more detail in our book. Second benefit and this is very controversial. Does vinegar really help to lose weight? Of course. And for various reasons. In addition to the effects on metabolism that I have just mentioned, the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar acts on your brain causing that effect called anorexigenic. It makes you feel fuller throughout the day and decreases our hunger. For this effect, add a tablespoon of soup two or three times to your meals. Now, how much weight can you lose using apple cider vinegar? Well, studies showed that overweight or obese people who consumed 2 to 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar every day lost 5 to 8 pounds after four to five months. This may seem like a modest reduction, but remember that apple cider vinegar is not the only thing you have to use to improve your metabolism and lose weight. It is simply one more weapon in the arsenal to improve your health. What I advise you is to add the consumption of vinegar to your other anti-inflammatory foods and physical exercise. In this way, the impact you will have on visceral fat, which is so dangerous, will be much greater. And in addition, it will also have effects to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.
Third benefit. Using vinegar helps lower high blood pressure and this is very encouraging. Experiments showed that acetic acid is capable of lowering a hormone in our blood called renin, which increases blood pressure. So, consuming it every day makes controlling your high blood pressure easier, especially if you add other healthy habits to this.
And I already tell you about the risks and care you should have. But why does apple cider vinegar have so many virtues? Well, the secret is in how you prepare it. To make apple cider vinegar, the pieces of this fruit are first exposed to fungi that will ferment their sugar and transform it into alcohol. Then some bacteria are added that will ferment and transform this alcohol into acetic acid, its main active component and that brings most of the benefits that I told you about. In addition, in apple cider vinegar there are some substances called flavonoids that are natural anti-inflammatories of plants.
Risks and Side Effects
Let’s now see the care, risks and side effects. This is very important, you should never take it pure because it is very acidic, always dilute it as I showed you or mix it with your food to avoid damaging your teeth, mouth, pharynx, esophagus and stomach. And if you like to drink it, always do it with a light bulb or a straw to avoid damaging your tooth enamel and after swallowing it, rinse your mouth. You have to pay attention because in some people vinegar can worsen the symptoms of gastritis. Although using it mixed with meals 2 to 3 tablespoons per day, this negative effect is very unlikely to occur. But if you are a person who already has a more sensitive stomach, an ulcer, chronic gastritis or any other gastrointestinal problem, we always recommend you consult your doctor first. An important effect to keep in mind is that vinegar slows the emptying of your stomach, that is, it makes food stay there longer, which can be good for people who are looking to lose weight or eat less. On the other hand, if you are a person who suffers from gastroparesis, a condition in which the stomach is already working more slowly or you have a tendency to retain food in your stomach. This occurs mainly in patients with more advanced diabetes, sequelae of some neurological diseases or in people who have gastric reflux. This can be very annoying, worsening abdominal swelling, causing pain, nausea, heartburn. Also be careful people who use insulin or remedies to lower blood sugar, since vinegar can enhance its effects.
And finally, a question that I always get asked: is apple cider vinegar better than other vinegars? Well, most of the effects that I mentioned to you were seen through the action of acetic acid, which is also present in other vinegars. In addition, the studies were always done modifying people’s habits, adding healthy habits. So the key is that you use the vinegar that you have available, but always accompany this with other healthy modifications to your lifestyle. Responding to you, it has not been possible to demonstrate until now that one vinegar is really better than the other, so here it will depend on the taste of each one.
