Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar while on HCG
Seeing the scale stall, or climb up before going back down is a normal occurrence on any HCG weight loss journey, but there are a few things that can help it go a little smoother. One of these is consuming raw, organic Apple Cider Vinegar daily. The nutrients, enzymes and organic acids in ACV are said to help with a variety of conditions including arthritis, high blood pressure, skin problems, chronic fatigue, and can also help maintain a normal body weight by flushing out toxins in the body and promoting healthy digestion and elimination. The potassium in the ACV will also help neutralize the sodium levels in the body which can help flush out retained water.
ACV can help boost your metabolism and will ease water retention in your system, which may get the scale moving again, however, you don’t want to use just any kind of ACV. Look for an organic apple cider vinegar that still has the enzymes in it. This is where the healing properties are – it can show up inside the bottle as little globs floating around. Shake it up before each use.
Don’t drink it by the gallon. There can be negative side effects to consuming too much ACV, including damage to the enamel of the teeth and some gastro-intestinal irritation. 2 tbsp mixed with 8 ounces of water daily
