BIG Hydration Series - 9. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is one of the most versatile ingredients you can have in your kitchen pantry. It is a multi-purpose natural elixir that has a plethora of benefits when consumed internally, used topically, and even for other household purposes. But did you know that adding ACV to water can significantly impact your hydration?
ACV is rich in minerals that have important functions in our body like calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium. These form some of the main electrolytes that regulate many processes in our body. Adding ACV to water not only flushes your body with a deluge of electrolytes, it also ensures that your body retains this water for longer instead of just flushing it out of your system without getting advantage of the electrolytes.
These electrolytes not only regulate hydration levels of the body by boosting hydration and increasing the absorption of electrolytes, it also balances the pH level of the blood and maintains critical nerve and muscle functions. ACV in water makes for an intense potassium-rich alkalizing drink. This also enables it to lower blood pressure and improve digestion.
ACV has many other benefits for the body which can really impact your overall well-being when consumed regularly. One of its main benefits is that it contains beneficial enzymes and probiotics which can provide relief to poor gut health. It boosts the production of stomach acid to help alleviate the symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome, bloating, indigestion, gas, and diarrhea.
ACV boosts energy levels and helps detox your body. It breaks down the toxins that are present in your body while boosting your cardiovascular function and unclogging arteries. This helps reduce feelings of sluggishness. It also reduces sugar cravings and can give your metabolism a much needed boost which can aid weight loss. It is also effective as a remedy for colds and coughs. The high acidity of ACV can kill bacteria that cause these illnesses.
With all these benefits, it is easy to see why ACV can powerfully impact your well-being. A dash of ACV in a glass of water may be just the thing you need to help your body function optimally and give you the best health of your life.
