Zesty, nat­u­ral good­ness

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - YOUR HEALTH -

AP­PLE cider vine­gar’s acetic acid switches on key genes that lead to the man­u­fac­ture of fatty acid ox­i­da­tion en­zymes.

These pow­er­ful en­zymes act as cat­a­lysts and are shown to boost me­tab­o­lism, block the body’s stor­age of in­com­ing di­etary fat as well as break down and dis­solve ex­ist­ing body fat.

To take ad­van­tage of its fat loss ben­e­fits, drink ap­ple cider vine­gar three times daily. Mix two ta­ble­spoons of ap­ple cider vine­gar with one to two ta­ble­spoons of raw honey in a glass of wa­ter.

Ap­ple cider vine­gar can also pro­mote younger- look­ing skin be­sides mak­ing your hair shine and treat­ing dan­druff.

Hair is on the mildly acidic side of the pH scale and has an ideal pH of 4.5 to 5.5. Rins­ing with ap­ple cider vine­gar will help bal­ance the pH of your hair and re­move the buildup that can re­sult from the use of styling prod­ucts and cheap sham­poos.

Rins­ing will also close the nu­mer­ous cu­ti­cle scales that cover and pro­tect the sur­face of each hair shaft. This gives it a smoother sur­face to re­flect more light, leav­ing your hair shinier, smoother and eas­ier to man­age.

Bragg Live Food Prod­ucts has been around for more than 100 years and has been a health food in­dus­try leader for gen­er­a­tions.

In the early 1900s, Dr Paul C. Bragg was the first ad­vo­cate to pro­mote the health ben­e­fits of ap­ple cider vine­gar and in­tro­duced Bragg Or­ganic Ap­ple Cider Vine­gar.

The best type of ap­ple cider vine­gar to use is one made from or­gan­i­cally grown whole ap­ples with no chem­i­cals or preser­va­tives added, that is un­pas­teurised and con­tains the mother of vine­gar ( nat­u­ral gelati­nous sub­stance formed dur­ing the fer­men­ta­tion step).

Cer­ti­fied or­ganic Bragg Or­ganic Ap­ple Cider Vine­gar is un­fil­tered, un­heated, un­pas­teurised, made from the finest fresh crushed or­gan­i­cally grown ap­ples, and al­lowed to ma­ture in wooden bar­rels, which boost its nat­u­ral fer­men­ta­tion qual­i­ties. Bragg Or­ganic Ap­ple Cider Vine­gar is rich in en­zymes and potas­sium. It is brown­ish in colour and if held to light, you will see for­ma­tions of tiny stran­d­like sub­stances, which is the mother of vine­gar.

It oc­curs nat­u­rally as con­nected pro­tein mol­e­cules and is the most nu­tri­tious part of the ap­ple cider vine­gar and is ben­e­fi­cial to digest. As it ages, more of it will ap­pear at the bot­tom of the bot­tle.

Ap­ple cider vine­gar with no ar­ti­fi­cial colour­ing, flavour­ing or preser­va­tives can of­fer you zesty nat­u­ral good­ness.
