I also heard it was good for your skin (Ever since I gave birth my skin has been a mess). I'm pretty sure it's hormonal because it seems to be cyclical (worse at certain times of the month than at other times) however, I still do have breakouts at all times. I got a clarsonic brush, changed my skin care regimen (from the $5 drug store stuff to the $50 dept store stuff (I may switch back)), I use bare minerals foundation and nothing. I will say I love the clarsonic brush and my skin looks and feels smoother but I have breakouts none the less.
Well apparently there are so many more benefits to drinking ACV:
- Its cleansing properties are known to aid digestion by stimulating the flow of enzymes and saliva in the mouth
- Relieve muscle pain
- balance PH levels
- Help lower cholesterol (the reason my husband began drinking it)
- Aid in weight loss
- Fight allergies
- Increase stamina (source)
I think it has definitely helped with digestion for me, especially the heart burn part. I don't know about the other stuff, but it hasn't hurt! My husband has been drinking it every morning for a year, because he has/had high cholesterol. His cholesterol levels are normal now, which he partly attributes to the ACV, but he also works out more, and has modified his diet (a bit). I do actually "like" drinking it now. The first few days I thought it was gross. Also, you have to drink the non-filtered organic kind with the "mother" that's the cloudy stuff. Supposedly it contains all sorts of beneficial enzymes.
So there you have it, a little background on a supposedly miracle working drink!
I tried it, I like it. Will you?
