You’ve probably read a lot about the endless benefits that apple cider vinegar offers. However, you’ve surely haven’t read all of them. Today, we will explore ten ways how a sip of apple cider vinegar before bed will help you.
1. WEIGHT LOSS
Studies have shown that lack of sleep is closely linked to obesity. The heavier a person is, the more it tends to report problems with sleep. ACV prevents accumulation of fat. Apple cider vinegar has been found to reduce appetite. It does so thanks to an ingredient called pectin that makes your brain feel more satisfied. So if you’re like me around bedtime (hungry), this can be a real savior! Instead of reaching for those cookies or that chocolate bar, mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water and drink instead.
2. HICCUPS WILL BE GONE!
The bitter taste of apple cider vinegar excessively stimulates nerves in the throat that cause hiccups. This causes the nerves to “forget” the need to hiccup. Just take a teaspoon of organic ACV and swallow.
3. TREATMENT OF SORE THROAT
The bacteria responsible for sore throat can not thrive in the acidic environment created by apple cider vinegar. In addition, vinegar contains natural antibacterial properties. An hour before bedtime, swallow a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Half an hour later, swallow another teaspoon, then another just before jumping into bed.
4. RELIEF STUFFY NOSE
Allergies? Get a bottle of apple cider vinegar! It contains vitamins B1, B2, A and E, as well as potassium and magnesium. These work together to thin mucus and clear the sinuses. Mix one teaspoon of ACV with a glass of water and drink before going to bed to get some quick relief.
5. TREATMENT OF ACID REFLUX
Apple cider vinegar restores the acidity of the stomach. Mix one tablespoon with a glass of water and drink an hour or so before bedtime.
6. REDUCTION OF NOCTURNAL LEG CRAMPS
Sharp pain in the legs makes you stay up all night? This pain most likely it caused by a lack of potassium. Lucky for you, apple cider vinegar contains a healthy ration of potassium that will restore the balance of your body. Mix 2 tablespoons of ACV with a glass of warm water and drink before bedtime each night to reduce cramping.
7. THE DECREASE IN BLOOD SUGAR
The second most common cause of insomnia is a high level of blood sugar. Apple cider vinegar works to reduce blood sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity. Take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar straight before bed every night if high level of blood sugar is a problem for you. If you are on medication for diabetes, check with your doctor before using this remedy.
8. BAD BREATH
If you find yourself waking up with a bad taste and odor in the mouth, a lot of bacteria in the mouth is probably the culprit. Apple cider vinegar will kill the bacteria and keep the mouth fresh overnight. Take a tablespoon of ACV before bed.
9. REDUCTION OF STOMACHACHE
Have you ever tried to sleep with an upset stomach? Next to impossible, right? Not with apple cider vinegar! Mix 1 cup of warm water with a teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar. Drink before bedtime and it will help with cramps and discomfort with gases.
10. PREVENTION OF INDIGESTION
Indigestion and insomnia are very good friends. ACV works by combating nausea and bloating and acid reflux mentioned above. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of warm water. Drink 30 minutes before bedtime.
