How Apple Cider Vinegar Works for Sinuses:
Apple cider vinegar works by binding to pathogens and helping your body get rid of them more effectively. The cider contains minerals, vitamins, malic acids and antioxidants that can target blockages.
When orally taken, it breaks up mucus, and clears airways, while its anti-bacterial properties help wipe out the infection. Also, rich nutrients in the cider boost the body’s immune system, therefore, consuming 1-2 tablespoons daily is recommended.
Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar:
Chief medical officer of US-based Epitomedical, Constantine George said Apple cider vinegar contains “B vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin B1, B2, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, and calcium”.
He added: “From that perspective, these can help boost one’s immune system, and also, therefore, can help prevent or fight off sinus infections.”
“Imagine when you have an infection, allergies, runny nose, coughing, congestion, most of the time when you go to the doctor’s office, they’ll tell you to take antihistamines like Zyrtec, Allegra, and Claritin to kind of help decongest you.”
Despite not personally prescribing the cider to his patients, the doctor said: “It is about 50/50 [effectiveness] with the limited number of patients we do have who have tried it. It is a newer thing that’s out there, and you are going to hear more about it as the years go on.”
But, other doctors, have said that taking simple multivitamin tablets can be more effective.
