Why Kourtney Kardashian Drinks Apple Cider Vinegar?
Health & Beauty / /
Kourtney Kardashian has recently shared her meal plan on her website, which includes a pretty interesting habit: She drinks apple cider vinegar twice a day.
As Women’s Health Magazine reports, As soon as Kourtney wakes up she takes collagen supplements on an empty stomach and around 20 minutes after that, she drinks a mixture of water with one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar. “Both of these habits have a ton of health benefits that affect everything from your skin to the way your body processes nutrients,” Kourtney wrote. Before having her dinner she also has another tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
Many people have been swearing by apple cider vinegar considering it a natural weight-loss aid, laxative and appetite suppressant. However, don't take it for granted. Experts warn that there isn't sufficient research to support those claims. The research on the link between weight loss and apple cider vinegar is not clear enough— many of the existing studies were either too small to be conclusive or were only done on animals.
We wouldn’t judge her routine, criticizing it as unnecessary and worthless."Some people find, though, that having a daily ritual like drinking ACV can get them into a can-do mindset around lifestyle changes, and that mindset can support weight loss efforts," Cording says. You just have to have on mind that taking any additional health or nutrition supplement should be taken with a dose of skepticism.
In any case if you choose to keep up with Kourtney's regimen, make sure you dilute the apple cider vinegar it with water. "A teaspoon in eight ounces of water is a safe amount to enjoy without potentially damaging your esophagus," says Cording.
Among the other food supplements that can be found on Kourtney's plate are oatmeal, avocado pudding, salad with chicken or salmon, and soup or turkey chili, as Women’s Health Magazine reports. But even the "healthiest Kardashian" now and then strays from her healthy eating routine. "You have to live your life!" she says.
