Apple Cider Vinegar Pros and Cons

Introduction

Apple cider vinegar(ACV) is made from fermented apple juice. Since added yeast in apples eats the sugar, it is virtually low in carbs.
ACV is widely used in salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, food preservatives, cooking, and traditional medicine. There have been claims of impressive health benefits. However, there is little credible evidence to support those claims.

Knowing the right reasons and uses of apple cider vinegar can be tricky as well as a balancing act. Therefore, understanding the cons and pros of ACV is crucial. The following discussion will help you decide whether ACV should be in your health regimen or not.

Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar

A few studies suggest some health benefits of using ACV in animals, especially metabolic health advantages.
Improve Digestion

ACV speeds up digestion by activating certain enzymes. A fair amount of these enzymes remain dormant in the stomach, pancreas, and other parts of our body. The body needs some catalysts to activate them. The acid in the stomach acts as an activator and helps break down the protein that eventually expedites digestion. The acetic acid in the vinegar lowers the pathogen growth in the body and prevents small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. If the body lacks a strong ph level, the acid offsets the shortcomings by creating a conducive condition.

Plant-eating animals (herbivores) don’t need plenty of acids. However, we humans are omnivores and eat everything, so do the meat-eating animals (carnivores) who need a substantial amount of acids to break down proteins. The acetic acid in vinegar has a ph level of around 3.5, which is five thousand times more acidic than water. We humans need a ph level of somewhere between 2 or 3 to break down the protein. That ph level is fifty thousand times more acidic than water and is about ten times more acidic than apple cider vinegar. Most people are unable to produce enough hydrochloric acid for various reasons. Therefore, apple cider vinegar can make up for it and help improve overall digestion.

Weight Loss

Some animal studies imply that the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar may stimulate weight loss in many ways. Apple cider vinegar makes glucose more sensitive and lowers insulin resistance. The body produces less insulin as a result and promotes weight loss.

Other Benefits

If the ph level in our body is low and more alkaline, it reduces our ability to absorb as many minerals as our body needs. Some vitamins like vitamin K, C, and B12 need this acid for the body to assimilate. Apart from that, apple cider vinegar reduces acid reflux. Decreases gas and bloating. ACV increases bile secretion that is more congested. Animal studies indicate that vinegar may bring down blood pressure by hindering the enzyme responsible for narrowing blood vessels.

Possible Side effects of Apple Cider Vinegar

Some studies reveal that apple cider vinegar has some downsides, especially when high consumption is involved (over 15-30 ml).
Erosion Of Tooth Enamel

Highly acidic meals and drinks such as fruit juice and soda can cause dental enamel to erode, increasing the danger of tooth corrosion. The highly acidic nature of vinegar, when taken excessively, can cause similar damage. Consuming large amounts of pure apple cider vinegar can harm your teeth if you drink it regularly.

Reduced Potassium Levels

According to the Mayo Clinic, drinking considerable doses of apple cider vinegar may result in low potassium levels, which can entail frailty and exhaustion, constipation, muscle cramps. Apart from that, irregular heart rhythm is also typical.

Drug Interactions

Since large consumption of apple cider vinegar lowers potassium levels, which leads to increased side effects of specific medicines, for-instance diuretics, insulin, and digoxin. However, you may avoid those complications by taking standard doses of 30 ml of vinegar. Individuals who take insulin and drink vinegar may experience alarmingly low blood sugar or potassium levels in the bloodstream.

Safety Guidelines

When it comes to drinking vinegar, the most necessary things to consider are the quantity and the consumption method. First and foremost, use an unpasteurized version of vinegar that is raw, organic, unfiltered, and mother. This version of vinegar contains certain enzymes that are beneficial to us. 

Start with a tiny portion and slowly increase up to a maximum of 2 tablespoons (30 mL) per day and weaken it by adding water. Sip the vinegar using a straw to avoid direct contact with the teeth. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water after each consumption. Stop taking vinegar if you have a stomach ulcer because your ulcer may further worsen if you continue taking vinegar. Please consult your physician if you have pre-existing medical conditions.

Summary

While apple cider vinegar can offer several health advantages, monitoring the amount of consumption and careful intake method is the key. Consume moderately (30 mL) and stay safe.

Insulin Resistance? Take charge before it is too late

Insulin Resistance? Take charge before it is too late

Introduction

A looming danger is ticking inside you like a timebomb without your conscious awareness and laying its foundation only to wreak havoc decades later when it is too late. The threat is Insulin Resistance, which is largely responsible for many complications like type 2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. About 24% of US grown-ups aged 20 years or 1 in 3 Americans have this condition – otherwise known as metabolic syndrome. However, there is medical and anecdotal evidence that a ketogenic diet can significantly improve or even reverse Insulin Resistance and related medical complications.

What is Insulin Resistance?

Insulin resistance occurs when cells of our muscles, fat, and liver fail to react properly to insulin and can’t utilize glucose from our blood. Insulin is a hormone produced by our pancreas. The main purpose of insulin is to facilitate body cells to absorb glucose and use it as fuel or stored as body fat. When our body can’t utilize the insulin properly, our pancreas makes more insulin as a result. Blood sugar levels soar gradually. If left untreated, the condition may lead to type 2 diabetes.

Risk factors

There are many contributing factors including the following:

  • Obesity is a major contributing factor, primarily concentrated fat along the stomach.
  • The sedentary lifestyle is closely related to obesity. Obesity is predominant among people with inactive lifestyles. There is ample data that shows obesity heightens the risk of high blood sugar, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia.
  • High-Carbohydrate consumption in our diet has detrimental metabolic impacts on us. 
  • Smoking is a significant risk factor for diabetes, essentially due to reduced insulin flow that in turn elevates insulin resistance.
  • Some medicines like steroids, antipsychotics, and HIV prescriptions make the matter worse.

Treat Insulin Resistance with the Ketogenic Diet

Study shows that ketogenic diet may considerably improve insulin sensitivity. When we embark on a ketogenic diet, our body learns to use an alternate source of energy and which is fat instead of carbohydrates.

The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that forces the body to burn fats, rather than carbohydrates, as an alternate source of fuel. Our body turns into a metabolic state called “ketosis” when carbohydrate is in short supply in our diet. In this state, our liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies (energy molecules) that supply adequate energy for the brain. Weight loss, enhanced vitality, and energy are the outcome of the low-carb diet.

The low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet with a reasonable saturated fat creates a conducive environment for the body to reduce insulin resistance. This type of diet regimen forces the body to use fat as energy thereby preventing sugar from entering our bloodstream and therefore, the body doesn’t need to make or use insulin. It likely even to reverse insulin resistance by strictly adhering to the ketogenic diet.

keto flu signs

Keto Flu Treatment

Keto Flu Treatment

Introduction: when people embark on a Ketogenic diet, some of them, if not all, experience keto flu signs
or flu-like symptoms while beginning the diet. These flu-like symptoms are generally known as Keto Flu. The abrupt reduction of carbohydrates in the diet triggers this condition.

What Is the Keto Flu?

Our body turns into a metabolic state called “ketosis” when carbohydrate is in short supply in our diet. In this state, our liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies (energy molecules) that supply adequate energy for the brain. Reducing carb intake drives our body to burn ketones for energy instead of glucose. This switching results in temporary imbalances in energy sources, insulin, and minerals in the body. This “withdrawal” from carbs manifests as flu-like symptoms.

Symptoms

The keto flu persists about one week, and symptoms usually begin within the first day or two of carbohydrate restriction. In some cases, the keto flu can last up to a month, but that is an exception. While many people make the transition to a ketogenic diet without any adverse consequences, others may experience one or more of the following indications:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Weakness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dizziness
  • Poor concentration
  • Stomach pain
  • Muscle soreness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sugar cravings

What are the keto flu signs and how to manage keto flu Symptoms?

Avoid Dehydration

When we consume carbohydrates, our body deposits the excess as glycogen in the liver, which binds to water in the body. Eating a low-carb diet causes glycogen levels to drop sharply and water is excreted from the body as a result. Rapidly shedding stored water increases the risk of dehydration.

Consume plenty of water to keep dehydration at bay and mitigate keto flu signs. Drink a glass of water with half a teaspoon of salt mixed into it. Take once or twice a day if needed.

Avoid Exhausting Exercise

Avoid strenuous exercise when you experience keto-flu symptoms. Walking, stretching, or doing gentle yoga or light activity is a good idea and may even help you feel better. 

Replace Electrolytes

Substituting dietary electrolytes may help lessen keto-flu symptoms. Including a multivitamin and a few vitamin supplements is a good idea. Due to an inadequate intake of magnesium in our diet and as most people are low in vitamin D, a good multivitamin and vitamin D supplements will usually provide our body with the vitamins and minerals we need. Apart from that, fish oil or krill oil capsules can be added to offset the omega-3 deficiency in our blood. Apart from that, salting food to enhance taste and including potassium-rich, keto-friendly meals like green leafy vegetables and avocados are a great way to assure you are keeping a healthy equilibrium of electrolytes.

Consume More Fat

Adequate intake of healthy fats and calories is vital to combat keto flu symptoms. Boosting fat consumption can further speed up the transition of burning fat rather than glucose for fuel.

Conclusion

The best way to fight the keto flu is staying hydrated, substituting electrolytes, taking plenty of rest, evading difficult exercises, consuming sufficient fat and cutting out carbs gradually over time.

Keto Diet Plan

Keto Diet Plan

Keto Diet Plan: If you are sincerely contemplating to embark on a Ketogenic Diet to lose weight or to harness the health benefits associated with the KETO diet, this blog is the answer. If none of the words make any sense to you and care to know more about the Ketogenic Diet and the health benefits it has to offer, read my previous blog – Reverse chronic ailments with the Ketogenic Diet.

I will strive to make this – Keto Diet Plan – as precise and short as possible. However, before diving into the diet plan, let us make a clear distinction – what is allowed and what is not.

Advertisement

Meal Plan

The Ketogenic diet consists of low carb, high-fat, and moderate protein. Therefore, recommended healthy ratios looks like as follows:

  • 70 percent of fats
  • 15 percent of proteins
  • 15 percent of green veggie carbs

Make sure every meal combines:

  1. Necessary fats (about 2 to 3 tablespoons of good fats per meal for women, about 3 to 4 tablespoons per meal for men)
  2. Necessary proteins (3 to 4 ounces of protein for women per meal, 3 to 6 ounces of protein for men per meal)
  3. Necessary green veggie carbs (about 2 to 6 cups of salad and 1 to 2 cups of cooked veggies per day)

I have laid out the following multiple meal-plans. Pick one that suits you best.

Breakfast: (Choose one)

  • Bullet coffee or tea mixed with cream/butter and olive /coconut oil without sugar.
  • 2 to 3 hard-boiled eggs with 2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter. 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • Scrambled eggs with cheese, capsicum, cabbage, and mushroom.
  • Vegetable pakora with cabbage, cauliflower, and spinach fried in coconut/olive oil or butter. Two slices of mozzarella cheese.
  • Omelet with 2-3 eggs and cheese. 1 large cucumber or 1/2 avocado (peeled and sliced).

Lunch: (Choose one)

  • Boiled chicken and vegetable salad stir-fried in olive oil/butter/ghee.
  • Chicken salad with onion, garlic, cabbage, cucumber, capsicum, yogurt, lettuce, almond, peanut, and cheese. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Cauliflower rice pulao with egg/paneer/chicken/fish/prawns.
  • Chicken kabab with a salad including tomatoes, cucumber, green chili, and onion.
  • 2-3 almond flour/keto atta roti/paratha(s) with fried eggs in ghee/butter. 1 large cucumber or 1/2 avocado (peeled and sliced).
  • Chicken mushroom soup with mixed vegetables.

Dinner: (Choose one)

  • Steamed vegetables including chicken with 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil.
  • Hard-boiled eggs with chicken kebab.
  • Chicken Barbecue with spinach and cheese.
  • Egg omelet with lots of cheese.
  • Chicken pizza with almond flour/keto atta including cheese, capsicum, mushroom, and onion.
  • Chicken salad with onion, garlic, cabbage, cucumber, capsicum, yogurt, lettuce, almond, peanut, and cheese. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil.

Snacks: (Choose one)

Snacks such as a handful of almond or peanuts, 2-3 slices of cheese are all healthy alternatives for midmorning or midafternoon. Snacks are usually not needed once you are in the Keto Diet and may slow down your weight loss. However, you may consider the following:

  • Black tea / lemon tea / peach tea (without sugar)
  • Black coffee (without milk & sugar)
  • Green tea (without sugar)
  • Vegitable pakora

Suppliments:

Including a multivitamin and a few vitamin supplements is a good idea. Due to an inadequate intake of magnesium in our diet and as most people are low in vitamin D, a good multivitamin and vitamin D supplements will usually provide our body with the vitamins and minerals we need. Apart from that, fish oil or krill oil capsules can be added to offset omega-3 deficiency in our blood.

Keto Diet Benefits

Keto Diet Benefits

Keto Diet Benefits: Today, I am going to discuss Ketogenic Diet and how it may reverse chronic ailments that plague humans for decades. Some of them have reached epidemic proportions. I have put some important links at the bottom to help you expand on the ideas.

What is a Ketogenic or Keto Diet?

Essentially, our body runs on two distinct types of fuel. One is sugar from carbohydrates found in foods we consume, foods like bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes fall into this category. The other type of fuel is fat, meals high in fat include eggs, meat, avocados, butter, ghee, olive oil, nuts, etc. Some people may supper from temporary keto flu during the early stage. However, keto flu remedy to combat the flu-like symptoms.

The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that forces the body to burn fats, rather than carbohydrate, as an alternate source of fuel. Our body turns into a metabolic state called “ketosis” when carbohydrate is in short supply in our diet. In this state, our liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies (energy molecules) that supply adequate energy for the brain.

The ketogenic diet helps you burn fat more effectively. If you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, typically within 3 to 4 days, you will start to break down protein and fat for energy, which in turn make you lose weight. In “ketosis” state, your body becomes an efficient fat burning machine, burns fat 24/7 hours a day and even while you are asleep. You feel more energetic and your brain functions at its peak, lowers your blood sugar, as a result. The Keto diet becomes more effective when you follow it alongside fasting at a given interval. The longer the fasting, the better.

Is the Keto diet a new idea?

Not really, it has a link with our very evolution. Our Stone Age ancestors had a predominantly hunter/gatherer type of lifestyle. There is archeological and anecdotal proof that the majority of our ancestors were surviving on a diet consisting mostly of animal fat, meat, and an occasional green, leafy vegetable. They did not eat refined carbohydrates and sugar as we do today. Though we have evolved into our modern evolutionary form, we still carry our early ancestors’ genes. The fact leads us to the presumption that our body may not be adaptive to the processed carbohydrate and sugary foods. There is a striking similarity between the Keto diet and that of our early ancestors.

What are the benefits of a Ketogenic diet?

Apart from weight loss, enhanced vitality, and energy, there is a whole host of other benefits associated with the Ketogenic diet. That includes even the possibility of reversing many chronic ailments that cripple our lives in many ways. There is enough medical evidence to suggest that, following illnesses can be reversed with the Ketogenic diet.

Type 2 Diabetes

This type of diabetes is characterized as a chronic and progressive condition resulting from the inadequate production of natural insulin, causing high blood sugar in the bloodstream. Type 2 diabetes is by far more prevalent, accounting for 90 percent of all diabetes cases worldwide.

When you are on a Keto diet, you have high levels of acidic molecules called ketones in your blood and tissue. In ketosis, ketones work as fuel alternatives to glucose and can help if you are a diabetic patient and unable to utilize glucose effectively. The Ketogenic Diet helps keep your blood sugar lower and more predictable than other diets.

Cancer

Insulin is a hormone that your body utilizes or stores sugar as fuel. With Ketogenic diets you can burn this fuel quickly, so, you don’t need to store it. As a result, your body makes and needs less insulin. Lower insulin level protects you against some kinds of cancer or even slow down the growth of cancer cells.

Heart Disease

The ketogenic diets, in fact, raise “good” cholesterol and lower “bad” cholesterol. Therefore, you are less likely to develop high blood pressure, hardened arteries, heart failure, and other heart-related conditions.

Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD)

Growing evidence suggests that Ketogenic Diet actually can reverse CKD to a significant degree, especially Diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease). Several studies, some in rodents and some in humans, clearly show that CKD can absolutely be reversed with Keto diet. It is very much likely that CKD stage 3 or 4 can be reversed back to stage 2 with a proper regimen of Ketogenic Diet. This is a big deal for patients with moderately impaired kidneys.
