Apple Cider Vinegar as Natural Detoxifier

Updated: Jan 29

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can support your body during detoxification and weight loss and therefore is the perfect natural detoxifier. But did you know that apple cider vinegar has many more benefits? You can read more about it below.

What is apple cider vinegar?

  • Apple cider vinegar is created by adding bacteria and yeast to freshly squeezed apple juice. This causes it to ferment and the sugars are converted into alcohol. By fermenting a second time, the resulting alcohol is converted into vinegar. So the alcohol has completely disappeared.

  • Apple cider vinegar is packed with nutrients, such as vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, C and E) and minerals (iron, calcium, potassium (potassium), phosphorus and magnesium).

  • Apple cider vinegar is very versatile. You can add it to a glass of water, but you can also use it in a dressing or use it as a marinade. Never drink unmixed apple cider vinegar as this can irritate and damage your esophagus. It is best to drink the apple cider vinegar mixture through a straw to protect your tooth enamel.

  • Opt for the apple cider vinegar which is of an organic and unpasteurized nature with 'the Mother'. This still contains the beneficial bacteria with countless health benefits. You can also buy these on my page: https://www.amazon.fr/shop/green_yourself

The health benefits of a natural detox:

  • CLEANS THE LIVER: With a detox cure, the toxins are removed from the body, namely the liver is cleansed. The toxins stored in tissues and cells affect the immune system, our mood, metabolism and our ability to fight disease.

  • INCREASES ENERGY AND MENTAL ALERTNESS: A life without toxin overload reduces fatigue and mood swings. It also increases your energy level so that you are more alert and fitter. Ingredients such as lemon, rosemary and mint will rejuvenate the body and can improve mental alertness. Furthermore, these powerful foods also help with hydration after exercise or a busy day.

  • SUPPORTS DIGESTION: The digestive system gets a chance to rest because the body does not receive heavy meals.

  • REDUCES INFLAMMATIONS: A number of ingredients reduce inflammation and swelling in the body. Watermelon, cucumber, strawberries and ginger are among these beneficial ingredients and they also ease digestion.

  • PROMOTES HEALTHY SKIN: By removing toxins, you get a more beautiful skin. Daily exposure to toxins and chemicals clogs your skin. This causes wrinkles, dryness and other signs. You will improve this through a detox and will minimize signs of aging making you look younger.
