Today, let’s explore 10 ways a swig of apple cider vinegar before bed will help you.
1. Weight Loss
Apple cider vinegar was is found to reduce appetite. It does this thanks to an ingredient called pectin that makes your brain feel more satisfied. So if you get like me around bedtime (really hungry), it can be a real savior!
The sour taste of apple cider vinegar overstimulates the nerves in your throat that cause hiccups. This causes the nerves to “forget” about the need to hiccup.
3. Sore Throat Treatment
The bacteria responsible for sore throat can’t thrive in the acidic environment apple cider vinegar creates. Additionally, the vinegar contains natural anti-bacterial properties.
An hour before bed, swallow one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Half an hour later, swallow another teaspoon, and then another right before you hop in bed.
4. Stuffy Nose Relief
Allergies have you up late? Reach for a bottle of apple cider vinegar! It contains the vitamins B1, B2, A and E, as well as potassium and magnesium. These work together to thin mucus and clear your sinuses.
Mix one teaspoon of ACV with a glass of water and drink it before bed to get some fast relief.
5. Acid Re-flux Treatment
Apple cider vinegar restores your stomach’s acidity, reducing the need for this sloshing. Mix one tablespoon with a large glass of water and drink an hour or so before bed.
6. Reduced Nighttime Leg Cramps
Apple cider vinegar contains a healthy helping of potassium that will restore your body’s balance. Mix 2 tablespoons of ACV with a glass of warm water and drink it before bed each night to reduce cramps.
7. Lowered Blood-Sugar
Apple cider vinegar works to lower blood-sugar by increasing insulin sensitivity. Take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar straight before bed each night if high blood-sugar levels are a problem for you. If you are on diabetes medication, consult with your doctor before using this remedy.
8. Bad Breath Treatment
If you find yourself waking up with a nasty taste and odor in your mouth, an abundance of bacteria in your mouth is probably to blame. Apple cider vinegar will kill this bacteria and keep your mouth fresh during the night. Take one tablespoon of ACV before bed.
