What if I told you there was a drink that could help you lose weight, increase testosterone, AND fix erectile dysfunction? With Apple Cider Vinegar, erectile dysfunction can be a thing of the past for you.
This vinegar is distilled straight from apples (as the name describes), and has countless proven health benefits.
I’ve personally consumed ACV for years and can attest to its greatness, but are there any studies that agree?
The Science Behind Apple Cider Vinegar
The good news is yes, there is scientific evidence that shows the benefits of apple cider vinegar. Unfortunately, like many “hippie” solutions, the science is kind of short, and we have to rely on anecdotal evidence too.
Despite this, the studies on ACV are promising.
There are a few rat studies that undoubtedly prove that ACV can lower blood sugar AND lower cholesterol.
So, without the doctor talk, what does that mean for us?
Blood sugar and cholesterol are two markers that if too high can absolutely wreck your health.
Back to the discussion, how does blood sugar and cholesterol wreck your boner?
Blood sugar makes you FAT and cholesterol destroys your CIRCULATION.
Circulation, clearly, being the #1 factor that determines the quality of your erection. Erections need blood, and your body needs to send blood there to get things kicking.
Good news – ACV can clean out your arteries, improve circulation, and give you your boner back.
Additionally, ACV helps you lose weight.
When you eat carbs, your blood sugar spikes. When your blood sugar spikes, your body starts storing fat all around your body.
Being overweight, believe it or not, is terrible for erectile health (crazy, I know). The main reason why is because increased body fat lowers testosterone levels.
Yes, it’s a wicked cycle. You get fat, and your testosterone drops. You need testosterone to build muscle, but you don’t have as much anymore, so you stay fat.
How does ACV help with all this? ACV helps control blood sugar, so you’ll gain less fat, and become a lean, mean, sex machine.
Personal Experience with Apple Cider Vinegar
Personally, I’ve used ACV consistently over the past 10 years, but not for blood sugar.
I take it because it breaks down mucus, clears out my sinuses, and helps prevent heartburn.
For most of my life, I’ve had terrible congestion, allergies, sinus infections, you name it. Taking ACV regularly DEFINITELY helps me avoid sickness.
Also, I get heartburn a few times a week, especially when I eat crappy foods. ACV for sure helps break down pizza and hamburgers so that I can digest them better.
Where To Buy Apple Cider Vinegar
Based on the health claims listed above, you might think ACV has to come with a prescription.
Surprise – ACV can be found right in your grocery store! It’s most often found in the “condiments” aisle, right next to the ketchup, in between all the other white vinegars.
MAKE SURE you buy organic, un-filtered Apple Cider Vinegar. To check if it’s unfiltered, you’ll want to see the clump of mass on the bottom (also known as ‘The Mother’). This culture is what contains all the good apple chemicals that’ll improve your health.
I prefer Bragg’s, which is the most popular ACV brand. It’s available in most grocery stores. If not, go to Whole Foods, Sprouts, or Fresh Market.
How To Drink Apple Cider Vinegar
Now, I bet you’re thinking, “okay Mike, you’ve convinced me to drink ACV. But….this stuff is nasty!!”
Don’t worry about it, we’ll get you fixed up right. Just like drinking alcohol, you have to start off easy and gradually up your dosage.
You don’t start drinking by chugging whiskey out of the bottle…you start with beer, and move up from there. Same thing with ACV.
Start at Level 1 and move up the ranks.
Level 1: Heat up some water in the microwave, but not boiling. Add a spoonful of raw organic honey, and then a spoonful of ACV. Mix it up, and drink. The honey will neutralize the bad vinegar taste.
Level 2: Same as level 1, but remove the honey. Just warm water and vinegar.
Level 3: Take a spoonful of vinegar and swallow it, then chase it with water.
Level 4: Take a full shot of ACV and don’t chase it. This is what I do.
I’m not lying. I’ve been on the vinegar wagon so long, that I can rip shots of it with no chaser.
You don’t have to drink it like that, but it’s definitely more manly.
No matter what method you use to consume vinegar, just make sure that you’re consuming it regularly. There’s no difference in effectiveness if you mix it with honey, water, juice, food, whatever.
As far as dosage goes, I recommend…1 to 2 spoonfuls after every meal.
Drinking it on an empty stomach, or before meals, can cause a burning sensation going down, and possibly an upset stomach. Don’t do that.
Drinking it after every meal is a good habit to get into. Although three times a day seems like a lot, it’s okay if you miss a meal or two because you’re eating out. Just make sure you consume it at least once a day, and ideally three times a day.
Everyone should be drinking Apple Cider Vinegar. It’s cheap, has no side effects, and if you can handle the taste, it’s pretty simple to take.
However, ACV doesn’t work for everyone. It’s possible you can drink a gallon of ACV a day (please don’t) and still have erectile dysfunction.
