Ingredient: Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar’s History:
Vinegar is one of the oldest fermentation. The oldest fermentation process of all is wine, from which the first vinegar was made.The name “cider” comes from the Phoenician “shekar” which means wine or strong drink.
From the Babylonians to the Aryans and Phoenicians, the soured apple wine recipe was passed to the Greeks and Romans and people started developing apple cider vinegar as a by-product to their soured apple wines (Rose, 2006).
Apple cider vinegar has only three calories per 15 grams and almost no carbohydrates. Like apple juice, it may contain pectin, B-vitamins (B1, B2, and B6, biotin, folic acid, niacin, pantothenic acid), and vitamin C.
Health Benefits of Apple cider:
1- Weight Loss:
Apple cider makes the body burn unwanted calories and boost the body’s metabolism to optimal levels. It supports appetite control and fat burning in the body. The main component of Apple cider is acetic acid, which can help in aiding metabolic syndrome by reducing obesity.
2- Reduces Cholesterol & Improves Heart Health:
It contains acetic acid, along with chlorogenic acid, which helps in reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol levels (so it protects the cardiovascular system).
Apple cider moderates alkaline levels. The pH level of this vinegar is similar to the pH level of the protective acid mantle of the skin, so this vinegar rinse can help restore the glow of the skin and restricts the dilation of the skin’s pores. This keeps your skin from becoming overly oily or dry and balances the production of sebum.
