Poor blood circulation can be the result of a variety of factors and can lead to a number of unpleasant health conditions. This problem should not go untreated, and it only takes one simple step to begin seeing an improvement in your symptoms. By incorporating apple cider vinegar or vinegar supplements into your diet, you will drastically increase blood flow and begin to rid your body of the stresses caused by poor circulation.
The most common cause of poor circulation is Raynaud’s disease. This illness is characterized by restriction in the blood vessels that limits the flow of blood throughout the body. This blockage can be caused by other factors, as well. You may have plaque buildup in your veins and artery walls that limits blood flow. And poor diet is not the only element that can cause this condition. If you had a stroke, for example, you may be susceptible to poor circulation as well. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, can also influence your body’s circulation.
Adding apple cider vinegar to your daily diet is a great way to improve circulation problems. Although regular vinegar has some of the same, beneficial enzymes, the concentration of these enzymes is greater in apple cider vinegar because this form of vinegar is the result of two fermentation cycles of pure apple juice. The powerful enzymes in apple cider vinegar break down bad cholesterol to keep it from clogging your arteries, and the vinegar’s high potassium content pulls excess sodium from the body. To get the maximum benefits of vinegar for poor circulation, mix 2 to 3 tsp. of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz. of water before every meal.
Although the liquid form is said to work best, you can also take apple cider vinegar supplements. These supplements typically come in a pill or capsule form. When using apple cider vinegar for health benefits, it is often recommended that you take the supplement before a meal with a full glass or water or juice. Each bottle of supplements will include specific dosage information, so be sure to follow the recommendation.
In addition to adding apple cider vinegar to your daily diet, consider revising your nutritional intake by minimizing sugar and caffeine. Increasing the amount of exercise you get will also aid the benefits of the apple cider vinegar for producing an increase in circulation.
