Friday Favorites: Metabolism Booster!

As we all know, metabolism begins to slow down as we age. In addition, not all of us were born with a super fast metabolism (my fiance is an exception…and I am extremely jealous!). Along with eating a well balanced diet, there are several things we can do to help “speed up” our metabolism.  My favorite supplement to use to help this process along is Apple Cider Vinegar!  There are too many health benefits to apple cider vinegar (also known as ACV) to list them all, but here are a few!

  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Detoxes the body
  • Increases potassium, which supports good heart function
  • Aides in digestion
  • Clears sinuses
  • Balances blood sugar
  • Boosts energy
  • Burns fat

ACV

You want to get organic, undistilled, raw apple cider vinegar with what is called the “mother”.  The “mother” is a milky substance found at the bottom of the bottle.  This undistilled variety has all  the nutrients our bodies need.

My favorite kind to use is Bragg Organic ACV. So how do you use it? Take your ACV drink with meals 3 times a day. Mix 1-2 tsps AVC in 6-8 oz of water. You can also add a tiny bit of maple syrup or raw honey if you can’t deal with the bitter taste. Another great option is to add it to your morning shake or smoothie! 🙂

Go grab your bottle and kick start your metabolism today!
