4 Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Though apple cider vinegar (ACV) makes for great sour pickles, tangy salad dressings, and even marinades, ACV has some impressive health properties too.

When you look at the research, you might wonder what ACV can’t do. The list of benefits is long, so we’ve highlighted a few:

1. Supports metabolism and weight loss

A tablespoon of ACV per day (about 1,000 mg) in a glass of water, food, or in supplement/gummy form, up to two times per day may support your metabolism, helping it burn fat a little faster.

This study even showed it may help reduce your risk of diabetes. But keep in mind: ACV isn’t a magic bullet! You’ll have to pair your daily dosage of ACV with all the other basics necessary for weight loss, like a clean diet and regular exercise.

Dr. Tobias Health Tip: One Dr. Tobias Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy is the equivalent of two liquid tablespoons of traditional ACV.

2. Aids digestion

If you’re a fan of probiotics, you might be a fan of apple cider vinegar. It’s great for digestion in similar ways…and ACV made with The Mother also contains beneficial bacteria with probiotic properties!

All types of apple cider vinegar contain acetic acid. These alter your digestive enzymes in a good way. It helps you process difficult-to-digest foods like fats, sugars, and the like, while boosting the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Dr. Tobias Health Tip: Dr. Tobias Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies are made with The Mother for the added health benefits.

3. Can help lower blood sugar levels

Unfiltered apple cider vinegar with The Mother can help lower blood sugar levels. By its very nature, vinegar can regulate healthy blood sugar levels in the body, which is great for those with Type Two Diabetes.

It’s important to note the most effective and healthiest way to regulate blood sugar levels is to avoid refined carbs and sugar, but apple cider vinegar may also have a beneficial effect.

4. Supports detox and fights free radicals

Free radicals are pushed away since apple cider vinegar actually harvests them and keeps oxidation stress and damage from taking out important tissues and cell membranes. Unruly free radicals can land you all sorts of problems like arthritis, immune diseases, and even emphysema. ACV helps keep the correct amount of these free radicals to allow health to come to you and stay.

There’s much more to apple cider vinegar than these few benefits. For the wellness enthusiast, ACV is a dream come true: a 100% natural, nutrient-rich health tonic, helping you feel good from the inside out!

Jump Start Spring With These 5 Cleanses

Spring has officially sprung! As we all spend more time indoors, we’re sure everyone is taking the time to thoroughly clean and organize their homes. But what about taking the time to cleanse our bodies? 

If winter has left you feeling sluggish, bloated, foggy, or maybe just tired, we recommend a cleanse to give your body the ultimate refresh from the inside out.

Here are 5 cleanses that will leave you feeling reset and refreshed:

1. Colon 14 Day Cleanse

As an Amazon Best Seller with over 26,000 reviews, the Colon 14 Day Cleanse tops our list for spring cleanses.

By aiding digestion and clearing waste, our 14-day cleanse gives your digestive system the ultimate reboot. It supports healthy energy levels, toxin removal and even weight loss. This formula includes the finest herbs, fibers and probiotics to help free the intestinal tract of excess waste, supporting healthy bowel movements and alleviating bloating.

Dr Tobias Health Tip: You’ll be taking more trips to the washroom so now’s the perfect time to do it while we’re all at home! Make sure to read our 6 tips for an effective colon cleanse blog post before getting started.

2. Liver 21 Day Cleanse

The liver’s job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. It helps fight infections and removes natural waste products and other harmful substances, like alcohol and toxins, from your bloodstream.

Our Liver 21 Day Cleanse is a unique formula designed to cleanse and repair this vital organ. It’s made up of natural ingredients like artichoke, dandelion, milk thistle and proteolytic enzymes for a gentle yet effective cleanse.

The main ingredient, Solarplast (chloroplast extract from spinach leaf), provides high concentrations of energy molecules harnessing the power of plants’ chloroplast to help cleanse and repair the liver.

Dr Tobias Health Tip: Liver detoxing doesn’t have to involve an extreme diet or juice cleanse. A gentler approach can be taken by including more whole foods into your diet which have been known to benefit the liver. We’ve compiled a list of our top 6 liver detoxifying foods.

3. Candida Support

Candida is the most common cause of fungal infections in humans. Candida overgrowth can result in increased fungal infections, chronic fatigue, skin issues like eczema, and even mood changes.

We designed Candida Support to help detox, cleanse, and balance proper candida levels in the body for optimal health and energy levels. It’s a powerful blend of herbs & enzymes (like oregano leaf, aloe vera and reishi mushroom) that work together to fight candida overgrowth.

By supporting intestinal flora, you can ensure not only a healthier digestive system but a stronger immune system as well.

4. Kidney Support

Our kidneys play a vital role in removing waste and excess fluids from our bodies. Dr Tobias Kidney Support provides your kidney and bladder with the support they both need to work at optimal levels. It’s made up of natural ingredients including cranberry extract, astragalus root, and a variety of herbs to support the body’s natural detoxification process.

5. Lung Health

Healthy lungs play a large role in overall health and well-being. Did you know we take more than 6 million breaths a year? The main role of your lungs is to take oxygen from the environment and transfer it to the bloodstream.

Dr Tobias Lung Health, our advanced respiratory support formula, has 10 active ingredients that work to cleanse and detox your lungs. Vitamins C & K-1, butternut extract, quercetin, and more work together to help cleanse your bronchial system and keep you breathing comfortably all year round. 

Supporting your Cleanse

Make the most of your spring cleanse by supporting it with a healthy diet filled with whole foods high in dietary fiber like fruits, vegetables and legumes. Aim for 8 hours of sleep every night so your body can rest and regenerate healthy new cells. Incorporate some daily exercise to sweat out any lingering toxins and further support digestion. And drink as much water as you can! Water is a cleanser’s best friend. Keep your water bottle close and stay hydrated!

6 Tips for an Effective Colon Cleanse

Digestive health plays an integral role in our overall health and wellness. The colon (also known as the large intestine) is one of the most important organs in the digestive tract. A healthy and well-functioning colon contributes significantly to overall digestive health.

At times, the colon can get backed up with waste and excess matter. This can leave us feeling sluggish, and we may experience irregular bowel movements. Colon cleansing is a popular remedy used to flush out backed up waste and toxins.

If you’re reading this, you’ve either started, or are contemplating starting our Colon 14 Day Cleanse. Our Colon 14 Day Cleanse uses an advanced cleansing formula to help your digestive system get a fresh, healthy new start. To make sure you get the most out of it, here are our top tips:

1. Drink LOTS of Water

During the cleanse, we recommend you drink at least 85 oz of water a day.

Water moistens stools and adds “bulk”, which helps it pass through the colon. A person who’s dehydrated will have fewer bowel movements as their body is trying to retain water.

Dr Tobias Health Tip: Regularly drinking 70-100 oz of water a day can naturally and lightly cleanse the colon.

2. Eat Fiber-rich Foods

While cleansing, incorporate more fiber-rich foods to your diet. Fiber can be found in whole, plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, and more.

Fiber can help “bulk” up excess matter in the colon. It’s great for regulating constipation and overactive bowels. Fiber is also a natural prebiotic source, making it great for gut bacteria.

3. Incorporate Daily Movement

Simply getting up and moving can help with bowel movements. Try incorporating 15-30 minutes of light exercise a day, like walking or doing yoga to benefit both your body and digestive system.

4. Get Quality Sleep

Digestive health experts believe sleep quality is connected to various digestive issues like bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Research even suggests that sleep disruptions can trigger flare-ups of inflammatory bowel disease.

During the cleanse, try to establish a bedtime routine with a consistent sleep schedule. Aim for at least 7 hours of restful, high-quality sleep. When done regularly, this type of sleep can even reduce stress levels.

Dr Tobias Health Tip: Keep your bedroom dark, cool, and free of digital screens to increase sleep quality.

5. Follow our Suggested Use Guidelines

It’s important to follow our suggested use guidelines. Start with 1 capsule at bedtime with 8 oz of water for the first 4 days. For the remainder of the cleanse, increase the dosage to 2 capsules.

6. Listen to Your Body

Everyone will react differently to a colon cleanse. It’s important to listen to your body throughout the process. If you find the cleanse too intense, reduce your capsule consumption, but do not exceed the recommended dosage.

Don’t forget! Our customer service team is always here to help if you have any questions along the way.
