Apple cider vinegar is an important part of a natural and healthy diet, because it has a high content of potassium which is necessary for growth, development and maintenance of body tissue. Potassium is required for soft tissues in the same way that the calcium is needed for hard tissues.
Lack of potassium can cause numerous problems, including the most serious disease of the joints. You can easily see that your body lacks potassium. First of all, there’s the fact that you have lost your liveliness and you have a feeling of deep discouragement. You have become lethargic and lazy, because you feel spiritual and physical fatigue and it is all because of the weakness in the muscles. In the morning you find very difficult to stand up and you simply feel exhausted. You have become more sensitive to cold; you have problems with constipation; you have lost your appetite and you feel nausea and want to vomit; you have problems with your teeth; skin will itch you and pimples are starting to appear; cuts do not heal fast as they should; at night you feel your leg muscles twitch; and you are becoming subjected to blisters; you have restless sleep at night. All these symptoms can occasionally occur and it is difficult to discover that you are just missing potassium!
With age, the amount of potassium which is necessary for organism is increased. The fastest will be if you intake potassium in the morning on an empty stomach and in the evening, before going to bed. Make yourself a drink of half a pint of water and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. To this mixture you can also add a teaspoon of honey, especially in the morning.
