Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a product of apple juice fermentation. Sounds like nothing extraordinary, but indeed its benefits are measureless. A.C.V. (Apple Cider Vinegar) health giving properties were well known long before our time. Hippocrates prescribed it as antiseptic. Greeks and Romans drank it as beverage. Columbus took it on his sails. Samurais drank it for strength as did Babylonians and Caesar's troops.

In modern times many authors have claimed to use A.C.V. for various purposes. Some have written testimonials on how they lowered cholesterol, normalized weight and increased energy in their patients and them-selves. If you as a reader find any of this interesting, feel free to do further research. I will only talk about my experience, with A.C.V. and how I think it can benefit an athlete.

Before I begin I would like to point out that the substance that is discussed here is not something you can find on a shelf of a regular supermarket. Most vinegar sold in chain stores is too diluted to have many health promoting qualities. What you want is the vinegar which is organic, raw and undiluted. This kind of apple cider vinegar is usually found in health food stores. A right type of Apple cider vinegar will contain many vitamins, organic acids, minerals, pectin, and enzymes.

Here is what this amazing substance can do for an athlete.

Taken internally:

It replaces the minerals lost through sweat and used up for metabolic functions. Muscular contraction and relaxation cycle requires basic four minerals (Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, and Calcium) all of which are found in ACV. ACV also helps in elimination of lactic acid, thus speeding up recovery.

Applied externally:

It hinders the swelling associated with strains, sprains, bruises and sore muscles.

Start with a few drops per cup of water. Depending on your individual sensitivity and tolerance, build up to a tea spoon of A.C.V. per cup of water. Many people like the taste of this beverage. If you don't, try adding a tea spoon of honey to the drink, as recommended by the famous Bragg family. In case you are allergic to the bee products try using dehydrated, raw, organic sugar cane in place of honey. You may be pleasantly surprised with the effect of this beverage on your athletic performance.

Warning- If you suspect that you have yeast or fungus infestation, avoid using this drink until the problem clears.

To use ACV externally, simply drench a cloth in the vinegar and apply to the target area. Cover with plastic wrap or a dry cloth. I have heard and personally known several cases where a potentially dangerous edema was greatly minimized by apple cider vinegar application. This substance may not be able to magically reverse the damage, but it can significantly slow down the swelling and speed up the recovery.

As always remember to see a health care provider as soon as possible.

As the old English saying goes - "To eat an apple before going to bed, will make a doctor beg for his bread"

Try this for a few weeks as a supplementation to your ElasticSteel program, and you may be marveled by the results.

Best Wishes,
