While there is not much scientific research to show detox diets remove toxins from the body, many people looking to lose weight like to kickstart their lifestyle change doing one.
Healthline suggests an apple cider vinegar detox, as it can have benefits internally and externally.
Its pros include giving the body a good dose of enzymes, increasing potassium intake, supporting a health immune system and adding good bacteria for the gut and immune function.
Apple cider vinegar’s most popular qualities include helping with weight control, soothing skin and helping to keep it healthy and healing and when used externally.
So those looking to take on an apple cider vinegar detox, how should you take it?
Healthline offers a basic ‘health drink’ recipe:
- One to two tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- Eight ounces of purified or distilled water
- One to two tablespoons of sweetener (organic honey, maple syrup, or four drops of Stevia)
With an apple cider vinegar detox, you consume this type of drink regularly for a set period of time – several days to a month or more.
Many people choose to consume it three times each day – when they wake up, mid-morning and again mid-afternoon.
Before undergoing the detox and drinking apple cider vinegar, it is recommended you dilute it with water.
Apple cider vinegar in its pure form is acidic and can erode tooth enamel or even born your mouth and throat.
One recommendation to consume it safely is to minimise tooth exposure to acetic acid.
To do this, you can try diluting the vinegar in water and then drinking it through a straw.
You can then rinse your mouth with water after taking it, and to prevent further enamel damage wait at least 30 minutes before brushing your teeth.
