apple cider vinegar
I tried apple cider vinegar for a while as a digestive aid and for fat reduction. Didn't stay with it very long, but my impression is that it does
generate results, but requires fantastically larger quantiies than is usually recommended. I noticed no difference whatsoever taking one tablespoon
per day, nor taking one tablespoon before meals. One tablespoon after
every meal was noticeable, but not hugely so. When I started pouring it
by the coffee cup and drinking after meals, I felt tangible and positive differences. But at that rate I ran out of vinegar rather quickly and lost
interest in buying a new bottle every week.
All in all, yes I would recommend it, but you may need to experiment some to find a quantity that's proper for your body, and see how you react to
it. I think the reasoning behind the vinegar is mostly just about it being a friendly acid. It artificially speeds up metabolism by breaking down
everything that you eat, causing it to pass through your body more quickly so you have less time to absorb it. I'm guessing it probably also tends to
kill off a lot of the bacteria that inhabit your intestines, which means less bacterial waste passing through your system, and less gas so less
Probably worth mentioning that drinking that much acid might be problematic for some people, so all due caution is advised. Personally I had no
problems, and found it to be a positive experience.
It may also be worth mentioning that I drink nothing but water, generally eat healthy, and avoid flouride, corn syrup, MSG, BHT, don't
smoke, rarely drink...I'm generally pretty particular about what I put in my body. So if there are any detoxification
benefits to apple cider
vinegar, I would not be a likely candidate to experience detoxification side effects. It's possible that drinking the stuff in the quantities that I
did might leech all sorts of nasty stuff out of your body at an unhealthy rate for someone in need of detox. I never really looked into that part of
it. Once again...all due diligence and caution is left to the reader.
