Kardashians..!!! Half of the world at least knows who they are… If you don’t belong to that half, let me introduce them to you. There is this English reality show called “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”. It’s like being with them 24 X 7. Listening to ‘everything’ they talk. What do they talk??? Everything…!!! You can imagine everything a ‘modern’ family would discuss. In one sentence – you can keep your brain at rest while watching this show. Absolutely no brain required to watch this show. You know what’s the surprising part of this whole family drama is, they have earned a lot more than you must be thinking by this show. Its already 10 seasons old and all have earned millions.
Even though I am not a huge fan of theirs, I love their wardrobe and the way they experiment with their looks…
Couple of years ago all these 5 sisters have launched their personal mobile apps.. Where each one of them post their beauty, fitness secrets and details of their wardrobe. You must have read about Kylie cosmetics on my blog before. Kylie is the youngest daughter of this Kardashian family.
In one of those beauty apps of theirs, I came across this beauty drink called – apple cider vinegar (Courtesy- Instagram). Kourtney Kardashian swears that she starts her day by drinking apple cider vinegar. After making my home work about this, I have started drinking this every morning. Since I know most of the things about it now, thought of sharing it with you guys.
What is Apple Cider Vinegar???
Apple cider vinegar, also known as cider vinegar /ACV, is a type of vinegar made from cider or apple.
How does it looks and tastes like???
It has pale to medium amber color and sour in taste. IMPORTANT thing is, its highly concentrated. It’s pungent, can even irritate your eyes. So, ALWAYS dilute before you consume.
I bought mine from Amazon. Here is the link.
Yeaahhhh…!!!! I know, I know,we all wanna eat our favorite food and never wanna look fat. How about doing these little things to shoot that nasty fat ???
Studies have proven that the acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar helps in slowing down fat accumulation. Also, its proved that on consuming this our stomach feels full thus we end up eating less. There you go, you have started with your weight loss journey already…!!!
A research was conducted where 1st specimen was not allowed to have Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) in his diet, whereas the other one was allowed to. At the end of the study it was found that the one who was consuming ACV had drop in cholesterol level.
So, ACV has potassium content along with acetic acid in it. So, while the acid bind to the task of removing toxins, potassium helps in breaking up mucus and clearing lymph nodes. Thus helps in detoxification.
As mentioned in previous point, ACV helps in clearing lymph nodes by breaking mucus. In addition to that, it also helps in clearing sinus. Also, ACV helps in preventing any sinus infection, all thanks to its antibacterial properties.
So, if you have any sinus issues, do include ACV in your diet.
Cure for Sore Throat
Since ACV has antibacterial properties, gargling ACV helps in healing sored throat.
ACV helps in keeping health of stomach in a good condition. Also, aids in digestion.
Replace your energy drink with ACV. Why??? The potassium content in ACV helps in boosting the energy and making you feel good and energetic.
Controls Diabetes and lessen heartburn
Let me not go to medical terms here. But in simple sentence – apple cider vinegar lowers blood sugar level. Thus it does reduces risks of diabetes and heartburns. I didn’t ‘prove’ that, studies did. haha
Who doesn’t like those white pearly smile??? Brushing teeth with diluted ACV helps in whitening teeth naturally. Killing the bacteria is the bonus.
For Shiny Hair
Rinse your hair with a little quantity of ACV post shower. This will make your hair shiny and bouncy.
Itchy/ sunburn skin
Applying diluted ACV on sunburnt or itchy skin can heal it.
It’s a good Toner or cleanser
As it’s antibacterial, you can use diluted ACV on your face to get the most of the benefits. Along with cleaning the facial pores, ACV also helps in preventing the bacterial infections/ pimples/ breakouts. #happyyy
Summer is just around the corner. Uff that stinking smell of sweat. Yikes. This is due to odour causing bacteria. Applying diluted ACV on armpits can stop the bacteria from producing that nasty odour.
Bad Breath Go Away
Bad breath can be really embarrassing. Gargling mouth with ACV(Diluted of course) can keep bad breath away.
Ewww. Just soak feet in a tub full of warm water. Don’t forget to add few drops of apple cider vinegar to kill the bacteria and making feet smell fresh.
So, my dear, are you convinced enough why you should start using apple cider vinegar in your diet???
You can drink diluted ACV directly or you can use it in your juices or salads. Cooking is not really my thing so I cant really help you out with how and where to mix this this drink with. #sorry But don’t forget to use DILUTED apple cider vinegar ONLY.
Take care reader…!!!
