I have added bragg apple cider vinegar to my daily routine because it is really effective in helping to make my body digest proteins better while on my high fat low carb diet. But I also found that it helps my body absorb some of the minerals that I have been taking to help with my Charlie Horse leg cramps.
There are lots of claims that drinking apple cider vinegar will help with reducing blood sugar, slow digestion, help with weight loss, Help with sinus problems and help reduce acid reflux. Many people swear by it although there isn’t really any proof that it helps with these issues.
But I started using acv as a way of making my body more alkaline so it could better absorb minerals better and this would reduce my leg cramps and pain that were waking me up in the early mornings. I love the stuff!
So the biggest benefit of drinking apple cider vinegar for me, was NO More Leg pain!
Not only have my leg cramps gone away but the apple cider vinegar has a difference in how I feel and my skin even looks healthier.
But there can be some apple cider vinegar side effects however most of them are temporary.
Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Side effects
- Because of the acid in apple cider vinegar, it could cause your teeth to become discolored or sensitive. However, you should not have this problem if you never drink it straight. I have heard of people downing a teaspoon of this stuff and it gives me goose bumps just thinking of it. Yuch! No. What you want to do is simply add 1 to 2 teaspoons to a full 8 ounce glass of water. I also recommend drinking your vinegar water with a straw. This will also help to protect your teeth.
- Some people state that they have stomach problems the first few days of trying apple cider vinegar. This typically is only temporary because your body is going through a sort of cleans. Fortunately I didn’t experience this.
- Others also experience a headache in the beginning as their body is adjusting. Again, this should only be temporary.
I only use Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar because it is pure and unpasteurized. There are other brands that are similar just make sure it says “with the ‘mother'” on the jar.
Simply mix 1 to 2 tsps of Bragg Organic Vinegar to a 8 oz glass of purified or filtered water. I like to add lots of ice and a bit of cranberry juice as well. Most times I add a slice or two of lemon and sometimes I add a little bit of cinnamon.
What about you? Do you drink Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar? If so, have you had any positive results or (hopefully not) any side effects? I’d love to hear from you.
