Apple Cider Vinegar for Constipation

Apple cider vinegar (also known as ACV) is a type of vinegar, packed with medicinal properties. ACV that has been used for centuries to cure various health and physiological problems.

Of course her at the Colon Care Clinic, we are mostly interested in exploring how ACV can help with constipation. We define constipation as being unable to empty bowel less than three times in a week. If you or a loved one is suffering constipation, read on.

How Apple Cider Vinegar Helps To Treat Constipation

  • ACV acts as a natural laxative which helps to induce bowel movements.

  • It contains pectin which is a water soluble fiber that helps to move solids in the gut by normalising the acid levels and increase the absorption of fiber intake.

  • The malic acid found in ACV helps to ease build up in the stomach

  • These naturally occurring and beneficial by-products of sauerkraut help boost the immune system, which leads to decreased health problems.
  • The fermentation of cabbage produces a substance called isothiocynates, which prevents cancer growth, particularly in the breast, colon, lung and liver.
