8 Things Not to Drink for Apple Cider Vinegar
I love apple cider vinegar. There’s so many healing medicinal properties that this can do do for our bodies. But there are several things that you never want to do while drinking applecider vinegar. And that’s what I’m going to talk about in this video. But let me first tell you the benefits what it can do for our bodies.
Apple cider vinegar helps boost acid production in our stomach. It’s been shown to support healthy cholesterol and triglycerides. It helps stabilize glucose to have healthy blood sugars. It’s been shown to reduce the amount of calories consumed, giving you satiety so you can lose weight. And it’s a great detoxifier for the liver and lymphatic system.
It helps improve assimilation of nutrients by slowing the gastric emptying into the small intestine. And it’s also been known to help support healthy blood pressure levels. And apple cider vinegar has acetic acid and it has a PH of two to three.
So when you’re taking apple cider vinegar, do not drink it straight up. Many people do. It can hurt the enamel on your teeth, affect the back of your throat, as well as the esophagus and the stomach. You want to drink it with one tablespoon to a glass of water, dilute it. And remember that less is usually more.
That means, don’t think that you have to drink lots of apple cider vinegar to get those results. If you’re taking too much too quick, you potentially can get an upset stomach or even heartburn. So start out with one teaspoon and gradually work your way up until you find your tolerable level. And one of the worst things to do after you drink applecider vinegar is brush your teeth.
The acetic acid that gets on your teeth can make the enamel more susceptible to become softened or weakened. And it’s best to wait about 20 to 30 minutes before brushing your teeth after you consume apple cider vinegar. And it’s best not to drink your applecider vinegar after the meal. If you are going to drink it after the meal, wait about 20 to 25 minutes.
It will delay digestion. It’s best to always take it before meals. Therefore it will aid in your digestion and help your digestive system. And it’s not a good idea to breathe it in or inhale it because of the acetic acid. The acetic acid can cause inflammation, irritation to the respiratory system, as well as the lungs. And it’s best not to drink your apple cider vinegar right before bed. The acetic acid.
Applecider vinegar can inflame and irritate your esophagus, so you may want to wait about 20 to 30 minutes before drinking it. And if you have ulcers or severe burning or erosion of the stomach, it’s best not to take applecider vinegar.
The high acidity can cause inflammation. And if you have H pylori, which we call Helicobacter pylori, that is the bacteria that causes ulcers, do not drink this until it’s treated. Speak to your doctor and be aware if you are diabetic and you are taking insulin stimulating medications, apple cider vinegar can drop your blood sugar levels much lower.
So make sure you’re monitoring it closely. And if you are taking diuretic medication because you’re retaining too much fluid, that is a possibility. You could be losing potassium, and drinking too much apple cider vinegar can cause more potassium loss. Make sure you dilute it. One tablespoon to a full glass of water before meals are best.
No more swigging. No more chugging out of the bottle. Not good for the teeth, the throat, the esophagus or the stomach. Make sure you are diluting it. I hope this video serves you well.
