Apple cider vinegar is rich in potassium and helps to re-establish a healthy inner ecosystem, your key to strength and immunity.
A healthy inner ecosystem is made up of the friendly microflora (good bacteria and yeast) that act as your internal health team of sorts. They aid your digestion and help you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Unfortunately, most Americans today have an imbalanced inner ecosystem.
In fact, biologists at RiceUniversityfound that 70% of Americans are affected by candida, a systemic fungal infection that occurs when your inner ecosystem is out of balance.
This inner ecosystem imbalance could be present at birth or occur from poor diet and lifestyle habits setting the stage for pathogens that overpower healthy microflora.
For healing and detoxification, apple cider vinegar is a great addition to your Body Ecology lifestyle.
In addition to nourishing your inner ecosystem, apple cider vinegar can:
Restore your body’s natural pH balance – Your blood is supposed to be slightly alkaline, but just as poor diet and lifestyle habits harm your inner ecosystem, they also harm the pH balance of your blood. As your blood becomes acidic, the stage is set for illness. Apple cider vinegar helps restore your body’s pH.
Aid digestion – Apple cider vinegar helps stimulate your stomach acid, aiding the digestion of protein and fats. Good digestion is essential for staying healthy and naturally slim.
Promote the growth of healthy microflora – apple cider vinegar is a prebiotic, which feeds probiotics (the healthy microflora in your inner ecosystem). For more, read:
