How Apple Cider Vinegar Keeps Arteries Clean & Lowers Blood Pressure
Now, apple cider vinegar is used by many, many millions of people worldwide for many reasons. Some people supplement with it, put it in their smoothies, put it on their salads, as well as other foods. But apple cider vinegar can do many, many great things for our body. But the big question today is how can apple cider vinegar help lower your blood pressure, help your arteries and cardiovascular system?
Well, apple cider vinegar is a result of a multistep process exposing crushed apples to yeast, which ferments sugar, turning them into alcohol. And the result in alcohol, with the addition of bacteria, converts into acetic acid, the primary active ingredient in apple cider vinegar, which is known to drive most of its health benefits.
And I would always recommend organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar because it contains the mother, which contains enzymes, gut friendly bacteria and strands of protein that create that murky appearance of apple cider vinegar.
And so that you can understand what the mother is. It’s those little strands in there. It’s kind of ugly when you look at it, but has so many health benefits. And that apple cider vinegar helps detox and cleanse your body. It’s those harmful toxins that lead to many serious conditions. And our liver is our largest filtration system.
And having a toxic liver affects all other organs within our system. It affects glucose, cholesterol, bilirubin hormones. It helps metabolize fats, proteins and carbohydrates, as well as produces bioproduction and excretion.
An apple cider vinegar will affect your gut and your digestion. The prebiotics help feed your probiotics in your gut. Those probiotics have a direct relationship with your brain. The way you think, the way you feel, your fogginess, your sharpness, it has a direct effect with your immune system on how strong your body will be. An apple cider vinegar can help acid reflux.
It helps break down the food in the gastrointestinal tract so it can get into the small intestine. And many people think that when they get this gerd or acid reflux, it’s always from too much acid. That’s not the truth. It’s not enough acid. And the acetic acid and apple cider vinegar helps better digestion. It helps tighten up the lower esophagyl sphincter.
That’s where the esophagus meets the stomach, so it can stay nice and tight. That pressure gradient with low acid will cause more reflux. To make its way up into the esophagus, apple cider vinegar slows down the rate at which the body turns carbohydrates into sugars.
It also reduces the rate at which food leaves the stomach and enters the lower digestive tract, meaning that you’ll feel fuller, longer you’ll have more satiety, you won’t overeat or crave those sugars. And researchers found that participants who took apple cider vinegar not only lost weight more than those who took a placebo, but also had lower triglycerides and total cholesterol.
So here’s the bottom line. Apple cider vinegar slows digestion, giving you more satiety. It will keep you from overeating. And this will help you lose weight. And by losing that extra weight, your blood pressure will definitely improve and come down.
It helps regulate blood sugars, keeping it from spiking, taking stress off the pancreas, making you more insulin sensitive and decreasing insulin resistance. So this helps lower triglycerides as well as LDLs, your low dense lipopor protein.
That is what causes plaquing in the intima of the arteries of the vessels that go to the heart. And if you can keep normal glucose levels in your blood and prevent it from spiking and elevating, this will help prevent plaqueing as well, because excessive glucose turns into fat, and that causes more cytokines to occur within your body, causing more inflammation, and it becomes a whole vicious cycle.
So you never want to drink your apple cider vinegar straight up, because the acetic acid, it can do damage to your teeth, your enamel, your throat, your esophagus, as well as your stomach. It’s always good to dilute it one tablespoon to a full glass of water.
It’s best to do it on an empty stomach before you eat. You can do it several times a day if you like. And if you’re taking different kinds of medications or have any other kind of specific medical condition, I always recommend to speak to your doctor first.
So there we have it. Apple cider vinegar. Yes, indirectly. It can definitely help your blood pressure, help you lose weight, as well as help your arteries. I hope you found this video helpful.
