Apple cider vinegar is truly a wonder ingredient. You’re here to learn how to detox your body with apple cider vinegar, and you’ll lear all about that! However, Apple cider vinegar has so many more health benefits beyond eliminating toxins for your body and cleansing your digestive track.
This article will mostly focus on how to detox your body with apple cider vinegar. You’ll also get four really cool apple cider vinegar drink recipes. They’re super easy to make and taste really delicious like chicken.
But first, why apple cider vinegar?
Besides helping you detox your system, apple cider vinegar has an enormous amount of other health benefits. I’ll list some of them below.
Benefits of apple cider vinegar:
Whether you’re detoxing or not, apple cider vinegar is really healthy for you and it should be something you consider taking anyway – even when you’re not trying to detox your system.
There are a few ways to detox yourself with apple cider vinegar, but know that you don’t need to get fancy with this stuff. You can easily spoon feed yourself apple cider and to get that bad boy in your system. That is of course, if you can stomach the taste!
How much apple cider vinegar should you take to detox your system? It’s hard to say because everyone is different. But, as a general guideline, you can drink roughly 2-6 teaspoon worth of apple cider vinegar to get the benefits of detoxing your system. Combining this with cutting out the crap foods, you’ll be on your way to cleaning out your system.
Apple cider is “vinegar”, and some people don’t like the taste of vinegar, especially when you are spoon feeding it directly into your mouth. Some people can handle spoon feeding and some can’t. Remember, it’s very acidic and you may or may not have trouble digesting it. Everyone is different so you’ll have to experiment. But take a shot of it and you’ll know haha!
What I recommend is this:
dilute it in a glass of water and/or add a flavour to it to make the taste more bearable. Raw honey is a great way to sweeten apple cider while keeping things real healthy. As well, you can also add cinnamon, or raw agave nectar to make apple cider taste better. You can add these ingredients mixed with water, and that’s as complicated as your recipe needs to be.
Or… you can make some drinks out of apple cider vinegar. Because why not!
Below, I’ll share some apple cider vinegar recipes. Because spoon feeding is boring! And everyone loves a good drink recipe 🙂
Apple cider vinegar drinks aren’t anything fancy. They’re straight forward drinks with simple recipe ingredients. Which I think is a good thing because you’re trying to detox your system, not have a party.
Here are four apple cider vinegar recipe ideas.
Drink 1 or 2 a day during your detox for best results.
Mix it in a cup and drink that! Just make sure there are no honey chunks floating around. Feel free to make it cold with ice or use sparkling water.
This drink is more of a cocktail variety, so it’s best served chilled in my opinion!
Mix this baby and you’ve got yourself an apple cider vinegar caesar….. sort of!
Another way to get more apple cider in your body is to cook with it. I prefer not to cook too intensely or at a high heat with vinegar, rather I like to drizzle it on my foods. I don’t get too crazy with my cooking, however, apple cider vinegar in my salads are the bombs!
I use a lot of balsamic vinegar in my salads anyways, so I scale back a little bit of the balsamic and add a bit of the apple cider, and viola, it tastes the same I can’t tell the difference really. Salad dressing is an excellent place to add vinegar to so I recommend checking out salad dressing recipes and try adding some vinegar to it. You’d be surprised that vinegar works with a lot of dressings.
Check this out. It’s a big list of vinaigrette dressing recipes for salads. It’s all you’ll ever need to make amazing salads. Just add a bit of apple cider to the dressing and you’re golden.
“Processed” is an ugly word. In a nutshell, anything processed has been changed, and it’s not healthy. You want raw apple cider vinegar because it’s 100% natural in its original form – and that is exactly what you need to detox your system. You need the real shit.
Don’t buy the cheap apple cider vinegar that costs $1.59 at the grocery store. That stuff is junk. Completely processed and I don’t know if it will even help you at all.
Spend the money and buy the real stuff. It’s not even that expensive anyways and we’re talking about your health so money is almost irrelevant 😛
So where the heck do you get the good stuff?
You can head to your local whole foods store or organic health store and find them there. I find the product varies a lot and sometimes they don’t even have good stuff. Any good apple cider vinegar will make sure you know it’s damn good all over the bottle. Look for anything that says “raw” or “100% natural”.
I like buying a lot of my stuff online because the selection is AMAZING. You can buy the best apple cider vinegar online and get it cheaper than at your local store too.
The rage online is Bragg’s organic raw apple cider vinegar. You can see their product here.
I don’t think there is really a set amount of days or weeks an apple cider vinegar detox should last. First of all, apple cider vinegar is healthy for you, so you should be trying to incorporate it into your diet anyways (so long as it doesn’t have negative side effects).
Apple cider vinegar cleanses your digestive system and helps eliminate toxins from your body. This process of excreting the crap out of your body can take a long time, and apple cider vinegar itself may not be the only thing you should be using to detox yourself.
Having said that, I browsed around the internet and forums to see how others have detoxed themselves. It sounds like a lot of people spend roughly 1-3 weeks specifically on detoxing with apple cider vinegar. So that should give you a ballpark of how long you can expect to spend during your apple cider detox.
I personally have not encounter any side effects of apple cider vinegar. From what I’ve seen online, most people don’t have any problems either. However, I don’t think there’s any foods out there that everyone is 100% good with.
Consuming too much apple cider vinegar seems to be the biggest problem people have with it, and the cause of most apple cider vinegar side effects.
The following are some side effects of consuming apple cider vinegar:
damage the enamel of your teeth – vinegar is acidic, which is not good for your teeth, or if you have sensitive teeth, you may feel pain if you ingest a concentrated amount of ACV.
Overall though, ACV is mostly a very safe ingredient to ingest.
ACV overall is safe to ingest and in my opinion, it’s about as safe as any other acidic food item you eat on a regular basis. However, to be safe, take the following precasting when ingesting ACV, especially in the beginning when you’re new to it.
Well, there u have it!
