The Chiropractors at AICA College Park provide patients with services that go beyond treating physical pain.
Our mission is to offer each and every patient specific Chiropractic treatment solutions that provide immediate pain relief and support their overall health.
Since we are discussing cold and flu prevention this month, we decided to offer some information that speaks to dietary health.
When it comes to avoiding a cold or getting sick with the flu, just a spoon full of organic apple cider vinegar is enough to provide a significant boost to your immune system.
Apple Vinegar and Cold Prevention
Organic apple cider vinegar contains incredible nutrients and vitamins that provide a significant boost to your immune system.
Created from fermented apples, medical research shows that apple cider vinegar is useful for maintaining insulin and glucose spikes for type 2 diabetics, while also supporting weight management.
Apple cider vinegar is also great for soothing a sore throat and other common cold and flu symptoms like excessive coughing or nasal congestion.
Like anything else, the type of apple cider vinegar you consume matters as far as how effective it will be for supporting a healthy immune system.
The next time you’re at the grocery store, make sure to only purchase apple vinegar that’s labeled “raw, organic.”
Unlike other types of vinegar that are refined and have a clear consistency, raw vinegar appears as murky brown with sediment settled at the bottom of the jar.
Although this appearance may not look tasty, raw apple cider vinegar is the only type you should purchase.
How To Consume Apple Cider Vinegar to Maximize Health Benefits
There are some ways that you can consume apple cider vinegar each day.
One way is to ingest small doses of 1 to 2 teaspoons firs thing in the morning. Others prefer to add a spoonful of vinegar to a glass of water to dilute the harsh, bitter taste.
Regardless of how you choose to consume apple cider vinegar, it’s important to be mindful of how much you take in each day. Apple cider vinegar is extremely acidic and can deteriorate your tooth enamel if taken too often.
As long as you can ingest a healthy amount each day, you should expect to experience:
- A boost in potassium, which supports your ability to transfer nerve impulses and build healthy muscles.
- Improvements when it comes to your ability to digest starch and manage healthy glucose levels (excellent for type 2 diabetics).
- Lower cholesterol
- Reduced blood pressure
- pH level balance
- Less fungal infections
- Less digestive issues
- Reduced soar throat
