Is apple cider vinegar an effective cold remedy?
Apple cider vinegar may help treat colds because of its antimicrobial properties. It is popular as a home remedy, but more research is necessary to confirm its effectiveness against colds.
Apple cider vinegar has a long history of use. Hippocrates mixed it with honey to treat disease, and soldiers used it to disinfect their wounds during the American Civil War.
Apple cider vinegar derives from apple cider that manufacturers ferment in order to remove the alcohol.
Many people believe that it contains a range of compounds that may benefit a person’s health.
Read on to find out how effective apple cider vinegar is for colds, how to use it, and its possible side effects.
Research has shown that apple cider vinegar has antimicrobial properties and can kill bacteria, yeasts, and fungal infections. However, one study found that apple cider vinegar was not effective against influenza and may not have any effect against viruses, which are the cause of the common cold.
Even though there is no scientific proof that apple cider vinegar is an effective treatment for colds, its antimicrobial qualities may help to ease cold symptoms in some people.
If a person has a cold and prefers to use a natural remedy rather than medication, they could try using apple cider vinegar to see if it eases their symptoms.
Apple cider vinegar has antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. Many of its health benefits are due to its polyphenolic compounds. These are active chemicals in plants, including fruits and vegetables.
Other types of fruit vinegar, such as grape vinegar, also contain polyphenolic compounds. However, white vinegar does not.
Polyphenolic compounds act as antioxidants and prevent the formation of free radicals, which can damage tissue.
Research suggests polyphenols can have positive effects on certain types of cancer, coronary heart disease, and various inflammatory disorders.
Certain types of apple cider vinegar include the “mother,” which is a colony of beneficial probiotic bacteria. These can help support the gut and immune system.
