Detoxing Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! It's a new year which means it's time for EVERYONE to start their 2 month "weight loss journey". Gyms are packed solid, spinach and kale are sold out of every grocery store, and Instagram models are having sales on Fitness Tea. Since everyone wants the secret to quick weight loss, here it is: WORK OUT AND EAT HEALTHY FOR MORE THAN A WEEK!!!

I'm sure you know that though, after all...you read my post about losing weight and you're aware that consistency is key. However, let's be realistic: the holidays are over and I'm sure more than a few of us may or may not have packed on 1, 2, or 5 pounds over the course of the past 3 months. Don't be ashamed, it happens to the best of us! Now, it's time to get back on track! Let's detox!

Sure, there are a plethora of detox Pins on Pinterest, detox tea sales on Instagram, and Facebook pages from fitness gurus that promise THIS package you pay $19.99 for will help you lose the weight. However, there's one ingredient that has been proven effective time and time again for weight loss: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar! Most people don't realize the many health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV as it's often called:

  • The acetic acid in ACV helps lower cholesterol and help kill certain bacteria in your body.
  • ACV helps to lower blood sugar and is a great aid for those who suffer from Type 2 Diabetes. 
  • The amino acids in ACV help to counter fatigue that some may experience from stress.
  • Daily consumption of ACV can help aid in weight loss over a period of time. 

One thing to be sure of is that your ACV is pure, organic, unfiltered and still has it's "mother" in it. Mother is what is left over after the fermentation of the vinegar which is why it's so effective and beneficial to your body. It's best to dilute ACV because the high acid content may cause esophageal issues (detox recipe below). The best ACV that is most popular is Bragg's Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. It can be found in just about any grocery store right next to the white vinegar. So what are you waiting for? Get started on your daily detox! Your body will thank you! 

ACV Daily Detox Drink
  • 8 ounces of water 
  • 2 tbsp of ACV 
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • A pinch or two of cayenne pepper
*Warning: The taste is not that great, but after a while you'll get used to it! Remember, this is something that will help you in the long run. However, it is NOT a miracle drink. It will not magically make you lose weight. As always, you have to incorporate a healthy lifestyle such as diet and exercise. Also, talk to a physician before doing any detox.  


  1. This may have to be something that I give a shot. I have apple cider vinegar (and all the other ingredients) in my house, so I'll report back if it happens.
