How can apple cider vinegar infused with medicinal herbs improve your health?

Apple cider vinegar has many nutritive benefits on its own – it helps lower blood sugar levels, aids in reducing cholesterol, improves digestion, adds good gut microbes & much more. However, this miracle drink can be given even more power if it is infused with medicinal herbs.

In a fast-paced world where we get most of our groceries from the supermarket, we all have a tendency to focus on our intake of macronutrients (the carbohydrates, proteins and fats) and ignore the power of micronutrients. That is a dangerous game to play since these vitamins and minerals are crucial to the healthy functioning of our bodies, as well as balanced mental health.

 

Why are micronutrients important?

Micronutrients, which include vitamins and minerals, are necessary for our bodies to function properly. Vitamins are essential for energy production, immune function & blood clotting while minerals play an important role in growth, bone health & fluid balance. These are functions that can’t be satisfied just by the consumption of enough calories and macronutrients.

The health effects and symptoms of long-term deficiencies vary depending on the particular nutrient. However, some deficiencies are more common than others. In Australia deficiencies of vitamin A, B12, D, iron and calcium are common.

Why aren’t we getting enough vitamins and minerals?

While the medical consensus is that adults can get all that they need while eating a balanced diet, the reality is that most people struggle with maintaining this healthy lifestyle in today’s fast-paced day and age. However, that is not the only issue which may be preventing you from getting all the necessary micronutrients.

Conditions such as leaky gut syndrome & the presence of the MTHFR gene can make the absorption of micronutrients more challenging.
