What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple Cider Vinegar, [ACV], is an age-old remedy used for a variety of health benefits.

The Warriors are one of the best teams in NBA history, and you can put their championship run up against any team in NBA history for the best playoff performance ever. But there's also a legitimate question of what this means for the sport. If the best or second-best player of all time stands no chance against this team, what does it mean for the sport's competitiveness? It hasn't been a problem so far, thanks to an extremely wild offseason, but the question remains: what happens to a competitive sports league when it's not truly competitive at the highest level?

What studies have found true is that consuming ACV before large meals, [1 tbsp in a cup of water], does seem to help with appetite control and curbing cravings. Researchers in Japan also found that daily consumption of ACL helped prevent weight gain. So if you’re currently trying to maintain your weight loss, this might be the magic tip you’re looking for!
2. Blood Sugar Levels, Insulin Sensitivity & Type II Diabetes
Apple Cider Vinegar contains acetic acid, which has been proven to balance blood sugar levels when it’s consumed before meals. Studies have shown that by drinking ACV in a cup of water before eating, pre-diabetic individuals have been able to lower their post-meal blood sugar levels to that of a normal adult, and those living with Type II Diabetes improved their blood sugar levels by an average of 25%.
3. Blood Pressure, Cholesterol & Heart Disease
The research proving this effect was done on rats, but a study of a large group of women who increased their consumption of ACL in an oil and vinegar salad dressing did find that their risk of heart disease decreased. Could it have been because their consumption of leafy greens likely increased with their consumption of salads? Maybe. It also could have been a combination of both! Takeaway: eat your greens, and top them with ACV in your dressing for an added healthy kick!
