There is no doubt you would be the most concerned for and caring about your newborn baby! And amongst the many questions in your mind, one would be if castor oil is safe for your baby. So, is it okay if you feed your baby with castor oil? How healthy is it for your baby?

Castor oil helps induce pregnancy, and many pregnant women have tried this cure. However, some suffered adverse effects including contractions and diarrhea. There isn’t much scientific data to back this claim and thus the efficacy of castor oil remains under question (1).

Coming to the point, how safe is castor oil for your baby? Read this post and get an answer to your questions!

Firstly, let’s get to know of a couple of facts about castor oil:

1. Castor Oil Helps Clear Bowels:

One of the traditional uses of castor oil is as a laxative. It’s one of the gentlest aperients known to man. Thus, infants with chronic constipation can be given daily doses of castor oil, reducing the dosage at each instance. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid, which binds with a prostaglandin receptor EP3. The combination causes contractions in the intestines. It is thus an effective laxative. (2)

2. Castor Oil Is Not Healthy For Babies:

In India and some other countries, newborns are administered castor oil for the first 2-3 days of their life. But contrary to popular belief, this practice can have adverse effects. In some cases, it can lead to paralytic ileus, a painful condition that causes obstruction in the intestines. Bronchial diseases like aspiration pneumonia, an infection of the lungs, have also been attributed to this practice. Some cases of hyperalbuminia, a medical condition where blood serum levels are quite low, have also been recorded. The long-term effects of daily doses of diluted castor oil cannot be ignored.

Thus, even though castor oil might be a strong laxative that promotes healthy bowel movements, there remains little evidence to suggest it is important for a healthy baby. Castor oil is thus unfit for babies, and oral administration of castor oil must be avoided.

What Role Does Castor Oil Play In A Healthy Baby?

Castor oil can help moisturize a baby’s dry skin. It has been known to cure discoloration, remove scars and naturally moisturize the skin. The ricinoleic acid, combined with trace amounts of omega-3 fatty acids help lock moisture in the skin. A castor oil rubdown will leave the baby’s skin soft and smooth.

Castor oil also helps thicken hair, moisturizes the scalp and promotes the growth of hair. It can also help relieve colic pains in infants (3).

The Hot Castor Oil Massage:

Castor oil packs can be used to eliminate colic pain in babies. Warm up some castor oil in a pan. Do a two finger test to check the temperature of the oil. Make sure it is hot but not hot enough to burn the baby’s skin. Rub the hot castor oil evenly over the baby’s belly. The castor oil massage helps the infant get relief from colic and release intestinal gas. This is because of castor oil’s unique purgative properties.

Although castor oil is not harmless when administered orally, most of the benefits of using castor oil predominantly feature topical application. The safest way to use castor oil on babies is to use it on clean, dry and undamaged skin. Remember to not diagnose or treat your infant by yourself. Take your adorable kid to the doctor (3).

FDA classified castor oil as “generally recognized as safe and effective”. However, there haven’t been many studies that have successfully analyzed its mechanism. Researchers are divided on how it exactly functions.

Are you worried that your regular cooking oil is not as healthy as it claims to be? Looking for a better alternative? Then look nowhere but inside your own home – because it is the humble and yet wonderful coconut oil we are talking about!

Want to know more about this oil and how well it can benefit you in your cooking? Then give this post a read!

Nutrients In Coconut Oil:

Extra virgin coconut oil is extracted from fresh matured coconuts. As per USDA National Nutrient Database, one tablespoon of coconut oil contains the following:

  • 117 calories
  • 0 grams of protein
  • 13.6 grams of fat (11.8 saturated, 0.8 monounsaturated and 0.2 polyunsaturated)
  • 0 grams of carbohydrate

It contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT), lauric acid that is rich in anti-oxidants and is also found in breast milk. It helps the body in absorbing other minerals and nutrients. Another important benefit is that it contains zero cholesterol. The presence of MCTs also makes the oil resistant to high heat and the oil does not break down and doesn’t release toxins when used for frying and cooking.

Choosing The Right Oil:

Coconut oil is available in two forms in supermarkets:

  • Extra virgin coconut oil
  • Refined coconut oil

Extra virgin coconut oil is extracted from matured coconuts and is absolutely pure and fresh. Refined coconut oil, on the other hand, is the coconut oil that has undergone refining, bleaching, deodorizing. Experts recommend using the former for internal uses like cooking and the latter for external application on the body. So pick your oil as per usage.

Health Benefits:

Coconut oil has several health benefits for the skin, hair and other organs of the body. Use it regularly to reap all the benefits and stay healthy and fit.

1. Quick Energy Source:

The medium chain fatty acids of coconut oil do not need to be broken down in the small intestine. They get absorbed intact and go straight to the liver from the digestive tract where they are in turn used as an instant source of energy. Some get turned into ketone, which has a healing effect on brain disorders.

2. Reduces Hunger:

The ketone bodies produced by consuming coconut oil reduce appetite. This leads to a decrease in food consumption and is extremely helpful for those wanting to lose weight.

3. Fights Diabetes:

Regular use of coconut oil is known to improve glucose tolerance and reduce body fat accumulation. Definitely good news for those suffering from diabetes!

4. Healthy Heart:

Saturated fats present in coconut oil help raise HDL (which is the good cholesterol) and reduce LDL (bad cholesterol). Coconut oil also helps in reducing triglyceride levels. By working on all components required for a healthy heart, coconut oil helps reduce cardiovascular diseases.

5. Builds Immunity:

An important health benefit of coconut oil is its ability to stave off infections caused by bacteria, virus and fungi and help build immunity. This is due to the presence of lauric acid (the same component found in breast milk). Also, when digested, coconut oil forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin. Both monolaurin and lauric acid protect the body from any microbial infections.

6. Anti-Ageing:

Coconut oil is packed with anti-oxidants that help keep away fine lines and wrinkles thereby helping you fight any signs of ageing.

7. High Smoking Point:

A high smoking point means that the oil can withstand high temperatures while cooking without losing its health benefits or turning rancid.

8. Long Shelf Life:

Coconut oil has a long shelf life and can be stored for a long time without going bad.

9. Soft Skin And Hair:

A soft and moisturised skin and glossy strong hair is what you get with regular consumption of coconut oil. The vitamin E present in the oil moisturises and softens your skin and prevents ageing. Coconut oil is known to stimulate hair growth too.

10. Dense:

Coconut oil is denser as compared to other oils. Therefore, less oil is consumed while cooking, thereby limiting your oil consumption and preventing food from being too oily.

Potential Risks:

Some health professionals still argue against the use of coconut oil as it has saturated fats that they feel may be harmful in the long run. Other oils like soybean, flaxseed, corn, safflower, extra-virgin olive oil and canola have lesser saturated fat content. Besides, coconut oil does not contain any vitamins or minerals. Critics also point out that not enough studies have been conducted to firmly establish the health benefits of coconut oil.

Uses In Cooking:

Besides substituting coconut oil with your regular oil for cooking, you can use it in other interesting ways as well.

  1. It can be used in the place of butter in baking recipes. It will also impart a slight “coconutty” flavour to your baked dishes.
  2. You can also drizzle some coconut oil over popcorns for more flavour or stir it in your hot cocoa and soups.
  3. Coconut oil can also be added to your favourite smoothies to make them healthier and tastier.
  4. It is an excellent plant based replacement for vegans.
  5. You can use it to make scrambled eggs.
  6. Use it the way you like, for sautéing, stir-frying or deep frying.
  7. Spread over toast, pancakes, muffins or waffles instead of butter/syrups.
  8. What’s more, food cooked with coconut oil tastes awesome, and it goes with all kinds of cuisines

The Wonder Oil:

With its several health benefits and broad based usage, coconut oil can certainly be termed as the oil with maximum benefits. Use it regularly and in innovative ways to reap all of its benefits. It is easily available in all supermarkets and can be brought off the shelf. Read the label carefully if you are looking for extra-virgin coconut oil as some of them tend to be mixed with refined coconut oils. Do not wait any longer to buy and use this wonder oil and give your family the gift of a healthy body and mind!

15 Amazing Benefits of Anaerobic Exercises To Stay Fit http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/benefits-of-anaerobic-exercises/ http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/benefits-of-anaerobic-exercises/#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:06:49 +0000 http://www.stylecraze.com/?p=270171 Do you want to stay energetic and enthusiastic all day?

Do you want to stay energetic and enthusiastic all day? Are you very much interested in building lean muscle mass and staying fit and robust even when you touch your forties? Then you should start performing anaerobic exercises each day!

These high-intensity workouts can give you amazing results and make you one of the best looking personalities in your area! Want to know more about them? Then this post is a must-read for you!

1. Creates Energy:

When you perform an anaerobic exercise, your body creates energy in two different ways. The first way is an ATP/CP system in which your body is forced to create energy when you perform the intense exercise for a brief period. This exercise can either be lifting heavy weights or sprinting 100 meters. The second way is glycolysis in which the body creates energy using blood sugar. The burning sensation you feel during intense exercise is a result of energy creation through the process of glycolysis, where the muscles are repeatedly used for performing exercises such as lifting weights several times.

2. Prevents Health Problems:

Anaerobic exercise prevents you from several health problems such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, low back pain and arthritis. On the contrary, if you are suffering from any of these ailments, anaerobic exercise can alleviate the condition. Strength training also makes your immunity system strong. 

3. Increases Bone Density And Strength:

Osteoporosis is a serious bone disease that is caused due to fragile and weak bones. Merely taking calcium supplements and increasing your dairy consumption is not enough to improve the health of your bones. It is necessary to challenge your bones by carrying out a weight bearing exercise so that they do not become brittle or soft. Anaerobic exercise increases the bone density and strength of your bones and protects you from harmful bone diseases.

4. Maintains And Builds Lean Muscle Mass:

You start losing lean muscle mass from your mid or late twenties. This leads to decreased functional fitness, strength loss and slower metabolism. You lose lean muscle mass not because of aging, but more because of a sedentary lifestyle. Strength training gives a workout to your muscles and helps you to retain and build lean muscle mass and remain functionally fit and strong.

5. Induces Fast Metabolism:

One of the major causes of weight gain is slower metabolism. Anaerobic exercise boosts your metabolism as it contributes to the building of lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle mass you have, the faster is your metabolism.

6. Improves Body Shape And Appearance:

Strength training is the best type of exercise if you want to reshape your body and improve its appearance. It gives you a toned, strong and athletic body.

7. Hardens Your Joints:

Fitness experts say that to protect your joints you need to build muscles. For example, when you perform squats, it helps to harden your knee joints. This happens because bigger muscles and ligaments start building up when you perform this exercise. You can harden your joints by performing anaerobic exercise and can protect your body from potential injuries. 

8. Improves Performance In Sports:

You need strength and stamina to improve yourself in sports. For example, if you are a tennis player who wants to improve your service or ground strokes, you need to work on your muscles and improve their strength. Regular training in anaerobic exercise improves your muscle strength, and you can see improvement in the way you serve or hit the backhand.

9. You Feel Young:

After you touch 40, your body starts losing around six pounds of muscles every ten years. You can reverse this process by maintaining your lean muscle mass in your early twenties. Strength training helps you to build the muscles back and also increases your energy levels so that you feel young and vibrant even in your forties.

10. Controls Blood Sugar:

The sugar you consume primarily hits the muscles in your body. However, in people who perform anaerobic exercise and lead an active lifestyle, this sugar does not reach the muscles as it is burned immediately or stored as fuel. In case you lead a sedentary life, the sugar gets converted into fat. Moreover, the performance of blood sugar that regulates insulin drops in the case of inactive people. Whereas for those regularly performing anaerobic exercises, it steadily rises. This helps to keep your blood sugar levels in control.

11. Improves Your Posture:

Bent-over or slouch-shouldered look appears aged and unimpressive. Anaerobic exercise helps you to retain muscle mass and look young by improving your posture and poise. It improves the way you carry yourself, thereby improving your confidence levels.

12. Get A Hold On Your Life:

Anaerobic exercise makes you feel strong and happy, bouncing with lots of energy. You can perform all the daily tasks easily and sail through the day without feeling tired and lethargic. This improves your work performance, making you more dedicated and disciplined thereby improving your success ratio.

13. Relieves Post-Exercise Soreness:

Usually, after you perform anaerobic exercise, you feel numbness and soreness in your muscles. But as it becomes a regular routine the soreness reduces to a minimum and you start enjoying the exercise routine. This happens because as you practice anaerobic exercise regularly, your tolerance level towards the by-products such as lactic acid increases. Your ability to eliminate toxic by-products from the body also increases, thereby reducing all the symptoms of soreness. 

14. Increases VO2 Max:

VO2 Max is the highest oxygen amount your body consumes during any form of exercise. When anaerobic exercise is regularly performed, VO2 Max number is automatically elevated. This happens because during this exercise your body makes available more amount of oxygen that improves your stamina when you perform quick burst activities without letting you feel tired or down.

15. Improves Aerobic Performance:

Regular practice of anaerobic exercise also improves your stamina to perform aerobic exercises. You can easily walk or jog for long distances without feeling tired as strength training causes micro-tears. The healing and repairing process makes your muscles larger, toned and stronger thereby increasing your performance level.

Thus, there are so many health improving reasons which make anaerobic exercise absolutely important. Do you know of any other benefits of anaerobic exercises? Share with us in the comments section below!

Do you badly want to lose weight but feel lazy or lack the time to hit the gym? Have you been wondering if there is any simple trick that can aid weight loss without costing much? Well, looks like finally there is an answer to your issues!

It is the very common hot water which you use every day at your home. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Read on to know how hot water can aid you in weight loss!

Hot Water – Health Benefits:

1. A Natural Hydrating Agent (1):

One of the most natural ways to keep your body hydrated is to consume sufficient water in any form, cold or hot. Each cell in our body needs water to absorb nutrients and eject waste products. One must drink at least eight glasses of water in a day to keep them hydrated. Hydration helps the kidneys expel waste products and toxins from the body and provides an appropriate platform to carry out all the biochemical and metabolic processes within our bodies.

Water is very important for survival. Doctors, dieticians and health experts recommend drinking at least 7-8 glasses of water every day. While some people prefer cold water, there are many dieticians who advise drinking hot or warm water. It is believed that hot or warm water is good for the body as it has many health benefits.

2. A Natural Cleanser And Purifier (2):

Drinking hot water helps in cleansing the body effectively. One can easily treat the problem of poor digestion by having a glass of hot water twice a day. Drinking a glass of hot water early in the morning helps in flushing out toxins from the body and cleanses the system. Drinking a glass of hot water every morning on an empty stomach aids proper bowel movements and cures constipation. Hot or warm water eases in breaking down food particles and passes them out quickly through the intestines.

3. A Natural Way To Lose Weight:

Hot water breaks down fat deposits from the body and helps in weight loss. A well-hydrated body helps in the rapid working of the muscles and organs. This enhances the metabolic activity, thus letting the calories burn faster. A normal human being, on a regular basis, must consume hot water 15 minutes before any meal to help curb appetite. Thus, one can avoid overeating and the calorie intake also reduces by almost 13%. Experts believe that consuming warm water just before breakfast furthers our chances of eating few calories per day. Drinking warm water in the morning also curtails cravings, hydrates our body and leaves our stomach feeling full as compared to cold water. If you drink hot water before meals, you will feel full sooner and therefore end up eating less.

Most of us make a common mistake by getting confused between thirst and hunger. This confusion leads to an inappropriate diet. More often than not we end up eating something when actually we are thirsty. During such confusion, it is recommended to drink a glass of warm water. If the thirst subsides, consider yourself a winner as you have successfully avoided unnecessary calories! It is therefore advisable to keep a bottle of warm water always with you to avoid such confusion. Ayurveda and ancient healing therapy also recommend drinking warm water in the morning on an empty stomach. According to ayurvedic treatments, adding lime and honey to warm water helps improve digestion and promotes healthy and glowing skin. So you can enjoy multiple benefits of warm water.

The purpose to have warm or hot water is to get our body easily adapted to our body temperature, thus increasing the metabolism and inducing weight loss. For this reason, it is recommended to consume warm water throughout the day to burn calories and thereby help ourselves lose weight.

In case you happen to be a person who tends to consume warm water with additional flavours, then you should remember one thing. Drinking a hot cup of tea or coffee is not a substitute to drinking warm water. Weight loss is possible only if we have plain warm water without any artificial flavours. Sodas, coffees and tea will no doubt keep you hydrated but they are not ideal in helping you lose weight.

Hot Water – Flavouring (3):

Drinking plain warm water day in and out could be boring, we agree. After all, how much warm water can one consume? Your taste buds may not like the plain hot water, encouraging you to add flavourings, caffeine or sugar. Here are some ways to naturally flavour your warm water so that it doesn’t appear boring and tastes good without harming your body.

You can add a few drops of lemon in warm water to make it taste good. Lemon grass is another fine way to add flavour to your glass of warm water. Ayurveda believes in adding honey and lime in warm water. This not only aids in digestion, but also increases the flavour. You can also try adding some herbs such as mint leaves, ginger or tulsi leaves. Adding a few pieces of freshly cut fruits also enhances the flavour. Those of you interested in herbal tea can consume it without adding sugar.

So, the next time when you feel lazy to hit the gym, you can simply heat up some plain drinking water and consume it as often as you can. Drinking hot water is one of the most inexpensive ways to actually realize your dream of losing weight. Not only this, regular consumption of hot water has many other health benefits as well! Remember that the remedies for most of the world’s dreaded ailments reside right within our homes. All we got to do is realise their presence and take good advantage of them!

Have you heard of oil pulling before? Ever tried it out? Oil pulling is nothing but gargling with oil. And guess what? It is a fantastic home remedy! At times, it is better than the medicines we use that contain harmful chemicals.

If you are tired of having medicines that have so many side-effects, and want a better alternative for detoxifying your body, then oil pulling is what you must look at!

The Origin Of Oil Pulling:

Have you ever heard of oil pulling? People who practice oil pulling claim that it can improve oral health and provide relief from many conditions such as asthma, headaches, diabetes, acne and many other diseases. The term oil-pulling was conceptualized in the early 1990s by Tummala Koteswara Rao in Bangalore, South India. Thereafter widespread promotion of Ayurvedic practice lead to the popularity of the practice of oil pulling. Even after so many years the accurate method of action of oil pulling therapy is still not clear.

Benefits Of Oil Pulling – A Brief:

This simple therapy has been known to cure many health conditions.

The basic principle is to detoxify the body from harmful toxins by spitting out through the oil.

Once the body gets rid of impurities and toxic substances, it automatically responds in a healthy manner. Those who popularized this therapy claim that oil pulling can treat various diseases such as migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterial thrombosis, and chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis, and related illnesses. It also treats neuro-physiological paralysis, eczema, gastroenteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and women’s hormonal disorders.

The Mechanism:

Oil pulling is something similar to gargling except that it is done with oil. In Ayurveda, gargling is usually done to treat imbalances of various dosahas. Oil pulling helps in removing toxic substances from the body. Given below is a step by step process that will guide you through this method. Read on and enjoy the benefits.

Step One:

Oil pulling is usually done in the morning on an empty stomach. It is not recommended to do oil pulling at any other time of the day.

  1. The first thing you need to do is choose the kind of oil that you want to use for this therapy.
  2. Remember that you should only use vegetable oil such as sesame oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil; you may also opt for olive oil or soya oil if you want.
  3. When you get up in the morning on an empty stomach, pour just one tablespoon of the oil that you have chosen into your mouth.
  4. If you are doing this for the first time, extra precautions must be adopted.
  5. Don’t pour more than what is recommended as you may tend to swallow and then puke everything out causing discomfort.
  6. If you are making children practice this therapy, you have to be more careful. You will need to give them just half a tablespoon of oil.

Step Two:

  1. Once the required amount of oil has been poured into the mouth, you need to swish this oil all around your mouth. Make sure you don’t swallow it.
  2. You are sure to have used mouth-wash once or twice. The mechanism is similar.
  3. Let the oil move around your mouth evenly.
  4. Remember not to take your head back as you usually do in gargling. Keep the oil inside the mouth for some time.
  5. Very soon, you will notice that the oil tends to become sloppy as it starts getting mixed with your saliva.
  6. Keep swishing till you are comfortable.

Step Three:

  1. You need to keep this oil inside the mouth for about twenty minutes. In the beginning, it might be very uncomfortable to keep it so long.
  2. The moment you feel like swallowing or your jaw muscles become tired you can spit out the entire liquid from your mouth and take another sip.
  3. Don’t put too much pressure on your jaw muscles while swishing the oil all around.
  4. Frankly speaking, there’s no correct procedure of swishing, it all depends on how much comfortable you are with the oil in your mouth. Perform it naturally and gently. Be relaxed and don’t be too vigorous.

Step Four:

The specified time for oil swishing inside the mouth is twenty minutes. By this time the oil transforms from being viscous to being thinner with a milky consistency. The kind of oil that you are using plays an important role. If you are using thick, viscous oil, it will take more time. However, thinner oil takes lesser time to become sloppy. Keep checking the oil that you want to spit out. If it has turned white, it indicates that the process is going to end.

Step Five:

  1. Once you are satisfied with swishing, you can spit out the oil from your mouth.
  2. Next step is to rinse the mouth with warm saline water.
  3. Add a pinch of table salt in a cup of warm water and take a sip. Rinse your mouth two-three times.
  4. Many don’t rinse their mouths with water, but it is recommended because it helps in removing bacteria and rinses away all the toxins that have been inside the mouth.
  5. Initially, you will find this entire process very lengthy and grubby. But don’t worry; with regular practice you will soon get familiar and start liking it.

Caution:

Oil pulling can be done every morning. It is an excellent way of detoxifying your mouth from harmful bacteria that later create nuisance in the body. By chance if you skip this in the morning, please don’t try it at any other time of the day. Oil pulling should always be done on an empty stomach. It is absolutely fine if you miss it at times.

There are generally no harmful reactions of oil pulling. It can be done with no contradictions to any medicines that you have been consuming. However, if you find any aggravation to a medical condition after performing this therapy, do discontinue.

If you are into the stage of pregnancy, then you would be confused about a number of foods. And one of them would be apple cider vinegar. Are you wondering if ACV is good for you during pregnancy? Are you hesitant to consume it because you are worried if it would have an effect on you and most importantly, your baby? If yes, then you should immediately read this post and get everything clear.

So, is apple cider vinegar healthy for you during pregnancy? Read to know!

Apple Cider Vinegar – A Brief:

Apple cider vinegar has played a major role since ancient days in maintaining the health of people.It has been used for so many years to treat skin diseases and osteoarthritis.Moreover, because of its multiple benefits, it is recommended for pregnant women and it is advised that during pregnancy a woman should consume apple cider vinegar on a daily basis for having a healthy baby.

Pasteurization Eliminates Harmful Bacteria:

Apple cider vinegar is obtained by crushing apples and then fermenting them. The alcohol obtained in this process turns into acetic acid. After aeration, this product is ready for sale. In many cases, the final product is pasteurized. Pasteurization removes the harmful bacteria like E. Cole (1).  It is better to consume pasteurized vinegar in pregnancy for safety purposes, though unpasteurized vinegar is also available for sale in markets.

Unpasteurized Products Should Be Avoided:

The harmful bacteria present in unpasteurized vinegar can cause side effects to the mother and child. Food-borne ailments can sometimes lead to serious health hazards to the mother like childbirth complications or miscarriages. The baby can experience serious health problems after birth as well. It can sometimes lower the impact of prescribed medicines. Hence, it is better to discuss with your doctor prior to consuming unpasteurized apple cider vinegar.

Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar offers several benefits if consumed during pregnancy. Following are some of those!

1. Relief From Morning Sickness:

It gives you relief from morning sickness that usually every woman has to face in her first trimester (2).

2. Good Beverage During Pregnancy:

It serves as a good beverage, especially during the craving period as it helps in neutralizing the glucose levels in the blood.

3. Prevents UTI:

Urinary Tract Infection is very common during pregnancy. Apple cider vinegar is packed with enzymes and many useful minerals that restrict the growth of bacteria causing UTI. Health experts advise taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day for treating UTI.

4. Reduces Heartburn Symptoms:

Women often feel heartburn during the 1st or the 2nd trimester. This is because the growing baby exerts pressure on the digestive tract of the mother. Apple cider vinegar neutralizes the acidic food providing a soothing relief. One tablespoon of it mixed in a cup of water, if consumed at the time of heartburn, can make you feel comfortable.

5. Safer For Clearing Nostrils During Pregnancy:

Sinus or blocked nostrils are again common during pregnancy, which can hamper the sleep of pregnant women. One teaspoon of apple cider vinegar when mixed in a warm glass of water makes an effective medicine for sinus.

6. Restricts Acne Problem:

It is used to treat acne or other skin problems often caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy.

7. Reduces Swelling:

During pregnancy, hands and feet get swollen most of the times. If you rub apple cider vinegar on them, it can reduce the swelling.

8. Regulates Circulation:

Pregnant women often face problems related to varicose veins. ACV makes the circulation easy and reduces the swelling of the veins. Mix it with your regular prescribed lotion and apply regularly to improve the condition.

Apple cider vinegar should be used only after consulting the caregiver, especially if you are allergic to beverages and drinks. Do you know of any other ways apple cider vinegar can benefit pregnant women? Share with us in the comments section!
