Hi guys this is John & Glenn for ACVHUB.com and today we are going to talk about apple cider vinegar and specifically its uses for acid reflux,
Apple cider vinegar is just fermented apple cider, it comes from apples. It takes a fermentation process involving yeast and bacteria to produce the ACV, so it does have probiotics and yeast inside of it. One of the more popular brands is called Braggs they make a great tasting raw unfiltered ACV. They recommend you get it containing a thing called ‘the mother’ this is simply a naturally occurring protein string of enzymes.
The thought with acid reflux or gurd is that the person suffering it must have too much stomach acid but this is not the case. More often than not people suffering from acid reflux actually need increased levels of acid to help better digest their food. This is known as gut dysbiosis. Gut dysbiosis means that your gut bacteria are out of balance and that you don’t have enough good bacteria.
Apple cider vinegar is a great source of these acids that your body needs in order to properly break down the food that you eat.
What a lot of people do it mix it with a glass of water and drink that down a couple of times a day, using this method you avoid having to drink the apple cider vinegar neat which can leave a burning sensation. Another great way to include apple cider vinegar into your diet is to make a salad dressing using it. Simply mix some balsamic and some apple cider vinegar together with some olive oil for a great tasting dressing that hold multiple health benefits.
