How Does Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Relieve Arthritis Pain?
1. ACV is full of specific enzymes and acids that stimulate digestion so your body can absorb the essential minerals and nutrients required for healthy joints.
2. When your body is depleted in minerals, it can aggravate your joint pain, ACV is high in calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorous, all the necessary minerals for optimal joint health.
3. The levels of magnesium in ACV are necessary in order for your bones to absorb the calcium that is needed for bone strength.
4. ACV is rich in antioxidants, which prevent free radical damage that leads to degenerative tissue damage.
5. ACV can help relieve your pain and stiffness by dissolving the built-up acid crystals in your joints.
6. ACV contains pectin, acetic acid, and mallic acid, which help absorb toxins and flush them out of your body, thereby reducing any metabolic waste stored in your connective tissues.
7. ACV helps alkalinize your body, which helps alleviate inflammation.
