“One of Mother Nature’s Most Perfect Foods”

Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (Organic, Raw & With The ‘Mother’) a.k.a. “One of Mother Nature’s Most Perfect Foods”

One of the many components of our twice yearly 7-Day Healthy Re-Boot is incorporating apple cider vinegar into the daily diet.  This may catch you off guard at first, but once you find out the benefits it has on your system we don’t think you’ll hesitate to try it out yourself.

The Goal:

Dilute 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water each day. (Can add stevia or honey for preferred tonic)

The Purpose:

Apple cider vinegar helps break down the body’s fat, mucous and phlegm, helping improve the health and function of your liver, bladder and kidneys. It also helps thin the blood, which helps prevent high blood pressure. It promotes digestion, and the assimilation and elimination processes. It helps detoxify the body of harmful elements. It has been said that if you take a mixture of cider vinegar and water before a meal it will help prevent diarrhea or digestive upsets and aids in weight loss.

Additional Benefits & Uses:

  • Improves your skin and scalp health (helps treat acne without drying out your skin)
  • Good toner: put in a spray bottle with equal amounts ACV and water
  • Sunburns: Again, equal parts ACV and water to splash over skin. Or better yet, soak in a bath with 1-2 cups of ACV in the bath water. It is good to follow with aloe vera gel in the case of severe sunburn.
  • Bug bites: apply directly to the bite
  • Deodorant: A natural alternative to the commercial deodorants that contain aluminum, with no smell upon drying
  • Aids in joint pain and stiffness
  • Aids in heartburn and acid reflux
  • Aids in weight loss (helps to break down fats)
  • Anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal: naturally helps fight germs, viruses, bacteria and mold
  • Aids in mouth health: Gargling with ACV helps remove toxins which helps relieve sore throats and laryngitis and maintain healthy gums
  • Food poisoning relief
  • Alkalinizing: helps to maintain the proper body ph levels for a healthy alkaline state. (particularly important if you drink a lot of coffee or wine)
  • Non-toxic cleaning spray for fruits and vegetables
  • Can be used on your hair for improvement of dandruff and itchy scalp.
  • Full of potassium, a mineral that is often times lacking in adult diets. This mineral is key for growth, building muscles, transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity etc. It also helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses.
  • Rich in acetic acid, which is said to slow the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
  • A few lab studies have found that ACV may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth.

Why “With the Mother”?

The ‘mother’ is made up of strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules with living nutrients and bacteria.

The Tastier Way to Drink Adequate Water

hydrate

During this time of the year, the cooler weather causes us to not crave as much water as we do in the warmer months. We do, however, usually crave tasty warm drinks such as coffee and coffee mixtures. While they may be temporarily satisfying and give us a quick pick-me-up, they are also dehydrating. So, especially this time of year, we must be sure to hydrate with water! Staying adequately hydrated is one of the best solutions to eliminating mental fog, energy dips and helping with digestion and weight loss. Who doesn’t want that?

So exactly how much water should you drink? Aim to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day, and more if you exercise. Get bored with plain old water? Here are a couple great alternatives to make it more enjoyable and add additional benefits:

Add Lemon to your Water for a number of healthy benefits

Add a squirt of lemon for not only taste, but also for its antibacterial and antiviral properties, immune-boosting vitamins and minerals, digestive assistance and liver cleansing benefits.

Or, mix up our favorite water substitute “The iGnite Cranberry Cocktail,” found in New York Times Best Seller The Fat Flush Plan. It not only tastes great, but also helps eliminate water retention, cleanses accumulated wastes from the lymphatic system and helps to clean up cellulite.

Mix up the iGnite Cranberry Cocktail
CRANBERRY WATER RECIPE Makes 32 oz.

  • 4 oz Unsweetened 100% Cranberry Juice from Concentrate (found in the juice aisle in most grocery stores)
  • 28 oz Water
  • 1/3 Tsp of liquid Stevia
  • Squirt of lemon for added flavor

Those of us at iGnite swear by this cranberry water — always keep a jug of it in your ‘fridge and you will be amazed at how much more liquid you drink throughout the day.

Try it out & let us know what you think!
