One of the most versatile household ingredients, apple cider vinegar, is abundant in health benefits.
For one thing, it boosts your metabolism while reducing blood sugar levels.
By regulating your blood sugar, ACV actually lowers insulin secretion in your body.
When it comes to weight loss, this common kitchen ingredient is extremely beneficial as it contains acids and catalysts which not only promote fat-burning, but also suppress appetite, all of which leads to weight loss.
The health benefits of apple cider vinegar were first mentioned by the ancient Babylonians over 5.000 years ago. Just a small decrease in body weight can significantly improve your overall health and lower the risk of diabetes, heart attack, and even cancer.
Furthermore, losing weight will improve your heart rate, lower LDL levels, and regulate glucose levels, according to Catherine Champagne, a scientist at Louisiana State University Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
Apple cider vinegar has other numerous health benefits as well.

Also, you can add vinegar in your coffee, tea or soft drinks. However, you should know that vinegar mixed with coffee, tea or soft drinks will be significantly more acidic and make sure your stomach can handle the vinegar`s acidity. Another way is to add a few tablespoons of ACV in a bottle of water and bring the bottle everywhere with you. In this way you will be able to drink the beverage throughout the day.
Note: you should not consume pure ACV since it is very acidic and can damage you teeth enamel and your stomach lining.
