2 Minute Detox Drink Helps You Burn Fat, Boosts Metabolism, Lowers Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure
Allow me to introduce yourself to the oldest and best kept secret for fat burning, boosting your metabolism and increasing your overall energy levels…
It has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, surviving the many diet and nutrition fads that have come and gone, especially in modern time…
The Babylonians first converted wine into vinegar in 5000 BCE using date palms, grapes, and figs, and believed vinegar had exceptional healing properties. Hippocrates is said to have used vinegar as an antibiotic. Samurai warriors supposedly used a vinegar tonic for strength and power.
Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar has a profound ability to improve blood sugar regulation and speed up weight loss.
Apple cider vinegar is a powerful detoxifying and purifying agent. It breaks down mucous within the body and in doing so, it improves the health and function of the vital organs of the body, such as the kidneys, bladder and liver.
How does Apple Cider Vinegar work for weight loss and boosting metabolism?
- ACV makes you eat less by producing a feeling of satiety sooner
A 2005 study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition proved that subjects who ate bread with vinegar felt significantly fuller than their counterparts who were fed only bread. The more acetic acid (the primary constituent of vinegar) the participants ingested, the fuller they were.
- ACV boosts your metabolism and makes you burn fat faster
It contains a lot of organic acids and enzymes that speed up your metabolism and increase the rate at which body fat is burnt.
A Japanese study published in 2009, observing the effects of acetic acid on rats that were fed a diet high in fats, concluded that the consumption of acetic acid suppressed fat accumulation.
In another Japanese study participants who drank more ACV than their counterparts during a 12 week period had lower BMI, waist circumference and visceral fat than the control group who drank none!
- ACV ignites and fuels the fat burning process
Apple cider vinegar can improve the body’s utilization of iron, a nutrient that acts like fire-starter for fuel. Iron is a key component in substances that carry oxygen to the cells and hold it there. Acids (like the acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar) help release iron in the food you eat and make it more available to be a building block for oxygen-carrying hemoglobin and oxygen-attracting myoglobin. Oxygen is as essential for burning energy in the body as it is for a fire to burn in a fireplace.
- ACV stops your cravings for the foods that are making you gain weight
Apples are a great source of potassium, and likewise, apple cider vinegar, taken on a regular basis, will contribute the potassium you need to help balance the sodium in your diet. In fact, try replacing salt in your diet with apple cider vinegar. Use it to top foods you might be tempted to salt, such as vegetables or protein foods.
Salt is often present in the foods you eat as a flavor enhancer for fat. So besides increasing the amount of water weight you carry, salt can tempt you to eat more of those fatty foods—French fries, pastries, high-fat meats or meat substitutes, etc.—than you might consume otherwise.
You won’t fall prey as easily to the tandem diet busters: salt and fat.
- ACV helps you regain control of the hormones that store belly fat and slow down metabolism
When you’re overweight or skinny fat (normal weight but you have too much fat mass), insulin becomes imbalanced and your cells become numb to the hormone.
As a result, you experience blood sugar highs and lows, and you store fat because your glucose regulator is broken. Your insulin hormone isn’t working and your weight loss is off track.
It also helps with the digestion of protein, the building blocks for growth hormone. When you process less protein your growth hormone levels decrease, which slows down your metabolism while you’re at rest.
Science has now proven that the main cause of weight gain and metabolic slow down are these 7 fat storing hormones.

Apple Cider Vinegar
While kings and queens would bask in the beneficial effects of cinnamon, the common folk resorted to apple cider vinegar to heal their everyday ailments.
A recent study found that consuming two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before a high carb meal significantly reduces blood glucose levels in people with insulin resistance. In fact, apple cider vinegar might work as well as prescription drugs at fixing your blood sugar regulation. Keep in mind that if your metabolism is broken, your hormones are misfiring, and insulin is the most likely to be a problem.
It has also been known to lower blood pressure when consumed on a daily basis. Modern medicine studies have confirmed that the acetic acid obtained from fermenting crushed apples together with vinegar confer anti-hypertensive effects on the human and animal bodies.
Another study available in the Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry Journal revealed that hypersensitive rats showed a significant decrease in blood pressure due almost entirely to the acetic acid or vinegar present in the administered formula.
