Instead of wasting your money on those expensive detox drinks that you see at the store, you can actually whip up your own detox drink at home.
The best part about making your own detox drink is that you probably already have the ingredients that you need in the kitchen.
Apple Cider Vinegar has been seen as a health tonic and something that can help detoxify the body and help the body to release weight.
While these claims are not seen as absolute fact, many women swear by apple cider vinegar as part of their overall weight loss plan and studies have been done on the benefits.
How can Apple Cider Vinegar Help You to Release Weight and Detox?
- It can help control blood sugar.
- Drinking a bit of vinegar can help you feel full if you drink it before a meal, causing an appetite suppression affect.
- Vinegar has been shown to prevent fat from building up.
- Vinegar has also been shown to affect insulin secretion.
- Helps regulate the pH of your skin and can help with acne and warts.
- The pH affect is also what causes your body to detox and maintain a healthy alkaline pH level
Remember, this is not a quick fix
When using this drink, the dieter must not be under the illusion that they can eat anything and everything in sight, however the use of (ACV) vinegar along with a cautious diet and regular exercise will eventually award good results.
The use of the apple cider vinegar is centered on speeding up the metabolism and the additional benefit of lowering blood cholesterol.
It does contain a reasonable amount of pectin, which lowers cholesterol and may be the secret behind vinegar’s fat burning effects.
How to use it?
- Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 16 oz of water or drink it straight, as a shot (followed by a cup of water), before each meal (2 times per day) to see detoxing and weight loss benefit.
- You can also sip it over the course of the day. If you need to make it a little more drinkable, take 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 2 cups of water.
Boil the water, add the vinegar and honey to a mug, and pour the water into the mug.
- Raw, organic, unfiltered and unpasturized apple cider is what you want to use. I suggest the Braggs brand of apple cider vinegar but whichever you buy, make sure it includes “the mother” of vinegar which “occurs naturally as connected strand-like chains of protein enzyme molecules.
Word of Caution:
Apple cider vinegar can be very harsh on the teeth and throat, so you want to dilute it with water and start with 1-2 teaspoons to begin that’s ok too.
Use a straw to avoid contact with teeth. Brush your teeth 30 min or so later (not right after drinking).
