2 Drinking Vinegar Mocktail Recipes
When it is all party party party, and you feel left out because you don’t have a fancy glass with a fancy drink…We have a solution for you with 2 Drinking Vinegar Mocktail recipes!
Drinking Vinegar’s are the hot new health trend for 2018 according to Natural Grocers Healthy Trend List that came out December 2017. They have an amazing light sweet taste and come in flavors like Honey, Apple Cinnamon, Concord Grape/Acia, Ginger Spice, Limeade and Pomegranate/Goji Berry. Bragg, the makers of my favorite apple cider vinegar, is really bringing these flavors to life with real food ingredients that are served in glass bottles. You know I am a BIG fan!
But why in the world would someone drink vinegar? Sounds awful if you think too much about it. Here are some good reasons…
- According to Dr. Jon Clinthorne, the director of scientific affairs for Natural Grocers. The America Diabetes Association published a study in the Diabetes Care journal demonstrated that consuming vinegar at bedtime can support healthy blood sugar levels when you wake up. (1) Great evening time drink!
- As we age, our bodies become less efficient at absorbing calcium from food. Calcium supplements are often left only partially absorbed. Vinegar assists with the absorption process by mixing calcium and magnesium to form a highly absorbable calcium compound. (2)
- Being rich in natural minerals, vitamins and enzymes make apple cider vinegar a great addition to any detox. The unique acids in apple cider vinegar can bind to toxins and help the body eliminate them more effectively. (3)
- Apple cider vinegar can also help to stimulate circulation and aid detoxification in the liver. (3)
- In ancient cultures, ACV was often used to purify the blood. Another way apple cider vinegar aids detoxification is by breaking up mucus throughout the body and cleansing the lymph nodes to allow for better lymph circulation. A healthy lymphatic system can remove toxins from the cells in the body while improving immune system response. (3)
- Aiding digestion is possibly one of apple cider vinegar’s biggest claims to fame. It can help with common indigestion and gastrointestinal discomfort caused by certain foods and it is said to clear up chronic acid reflux when taken religiously with each meal. (3)
- Apple cider vinegar devotees claim that this miracle elixir is one of the main reasons they are able to ward off common illnesses. This can most likely be chalked up to ACV’s unique blend of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It also possesses antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. (3)
