Hi, i was ready up on dieting and found a thing about taking magnesium tablets to balence hormones and taking apple cider vinegar tables to help boost metabolism to help you loose weight naturaly, has anyone tried these? and do they really work?
I haven't heard anything about magnesium, but I do know that apple cider vinegar has incredible properties. I put it in my dogs' water bowl a couple of times a week to help with their coats and skin and have been reading more and more about it, and have started taking it myself. If you can stomach it, it's a lot cheaper just to buy the vinegar (I love vinegar.. lol... kind of odd) and put it in some water.
These are some of the things found in ACV; Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Chlorine, Sodium, Sulfur, Copper, Iron, Silicon, Fluorine.
Some of the vitamins and minerals; Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Provitamin beta-carotene, Vitamin P
And some of the awesome things it can do; well functioning metabolism; Reducing cholesterol (the dangerous LDL cholesterol type); Regulating the water content in the cells and body; Reducing water retention in the body; Reducing excess sodium from the body; Helps with regulating blood pressure; Assists in preventing circulatory problems; Helps with diminishing premature calcification of the arteries; Helps increase concentration and memory; Assists in blood circulation, body temperature as well as vitality and energy.
Sounds good to me! :)
apple cider is very cheap through puritans pride. I have taken it for about a year, I believe in it. I'm going to research the magnesium. I have pcos so I need my hormones balanced. And I think magnesium and potassium are supplemented together.
I had pcos (had hysterectomy 4 years ago) also and never tried magnesium. I wonder if it would help with hotflashes.
Apple cider, if opted, is to be taken in tablets, because it erodes your enamel.
Nothing other than calories in - calories out is going to make you lose weight. Don't buy into supplements and their claims.
For the helpful properties of vinegar, see this video from a trust worthy site:
I just saw on nutrition fact.org that vinegar pills are very bad, oops my mistake!
They recommend 2 teaspoon max per meal, that should not pose a threat to enamel if mixed with something else to reduce acidity.
I wouldnt use the vinegar dont think i could stomach the taste lol, i use tabblets, i dont think its a magic pill that will make me loose pounds, but iv read it can help boost motabilism which is what i need right now i lost 2 stone last year and 16 pound last month but weight loss just stopped, im still eating healthy and excercise every day but still nothing, even lowered my cals to see if that would help, well i will see what happens this month hopefully i start loseing again :)
