Why does apple cider vinegar help?

It has been found that apple cider vinegar has many health benefits. It has some amazing properties that aid in maintaining good health.

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which has this amazing property to provide oxygen to the muscle cells.

This oxygen makes the muscles strong as it reaches them and also relieves the stress.

Apple cider vinegar helps to raise the Ph level of the body which thereby helps to reduce acidosis which causes major pain in the body.

Patients who have severe pain due to fibromyalgia are recommended to intake apple cider vinegar for some relief in pain.

Apple cider vinegar is known for its amazing health properties but you should be careful when buying the right kind of apple cider vinegar because the apple cider vinegar that is available in the supermarkets might not be genuine and might be fake as well.

They may be refined, distilled and filtered which may make them useless to use for the purpose of treating fibromyalgia.

The best type of apple cider vinegar is one which is raw, cold pressed and organic apple cider vinegar which is not pasteurized.

The apple cider vinegar which is the true one contains enzymes and gut-friendly bacteria that help in the healing process.

It is best when you purchase apple cider vinegar from an authentic store and which is the genuine one. Only then will it help you to treat fibromyalgia.

The ideal and recommended dosage of apple cider vinegar is one to two tablespoons every day.

You should, however, not start its dosage without first asking your doctor. Initially, your doctor might prescribe you to start from a teaspoon.

If it sets you and helps you, then your doctor will recommend you increase its intake from one teaspoon to 2 tablespoons.

Apple cider vinegar- a miracle in your pantry which you never knew!

Above you read a lot of benefits that apple cider vinegar contains especially for those people who have this illness known as fibromyalgia.

Apple cider vinegar is considered as one of the best ways in order to minimize the pain one gets from fibromyalgia.

Although, there is no definite cure for fibromyalgia and most doctors ask the patients to take in medicines especially for severe cases but even then, it is always recommended to take the help of something which is natural, toxin-free and inexpensive.

However, you should not hope that apple cider vinegar will start to work and show its miracles from day one.

It takes time for heavy medicines to act upon in reducing the pains associated with fibromyalgia, then apple cider vinegar is only a natural agent.

However, the properties of apple cider vinegar and the personal experiences of patients with fibromyalgia share good reviews about using apple cider vinegar.

One who starts the dosage of apple cider vinegar should first consult his doctor whether he should start it or not.

If the doctor allows then only should the patient start its dosage. It must also be noted that those patients who have severe pains associated with fibromyalgia must not only rely upon apple cider vinegar.

Some cases of fibromyalgia are so severe that they need medical assistance.

In that case, apple cider vinegar will not work but even then, this vinegar can be used by those who are in the early stages of fibromyalgia and who knows the wonders this vinegar can do!

  • I agree. I try to be religious about taking it, even having it right there next to my kettle, but the taste is so strong. I’m going to go back to it now. p.s. I have actually found something that really did help with the pain and it is Wild Oregenoa Oil. It must have 80% + carvacrol . I had originally bought a cheaper brand and it was not nearly as effective as the more expensive one (sadly)
    I have 5 drops a day and it really has helped with the pain. If you go down this path, please make sure you dilute it as it is super strong.
