We all know the various medical advantages of apple cider vinegar but here are some step-by-step tips and incredible new ways to use it in your everyday life. Whether it’s for losing weight, immunity building, or simply preventing disease, it works like magic.
Here are 17 reasons you need to get a jug of ACV in your home today!
1. Speeds up Metabolism & Aids Weight Loss
Apple juice vinegar can kick your digestion system into overdrive! A successful fat terminator, it prevents you from overindulging, helps you realize when you are full, accelerates the body’s metabolic rate, and helps to alkalize your body. For results, you should put one to two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it before every meal.
2. Eradicates Dandruff
Have a dry scalp? Let apple cider vinegar help! Add apple cider vinegar to water in equal parts, and then wash your scalp in it for two hours. This will clean your scalp and free it of dandruff. You can do this several times each week for serious dandruff
3. Whitens Teeth
Say goodbye to stained yellow teeth! For intense stains, rub apple cider vinegar specifically onto your teeth, and after that flush your mouth out with water. For a simpler treatment (which is kinder to your enamel), make your own whitening mouthwash by blending one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with some water. Simple!
4. Makes Your Hair Shinier
To get rid of the buildup that dulls your hair, wash it with a normal cleanser, and flush it with apple cider vinegar before conditioning.
5. Clears up Skin
I love what apple cider vinegar can do for my skin! To get rid of blemishes or unwanted spots apply a washcloth absorbed in diluted apple cider vinegar to your face. This will restore your skin to a normal pH level, and make your face feel smoother and less oily (actually decreasing fine lines). If you have any particularly annoying spots i.e. age spots or pimples, a touch of apple cider vinegar will certainly help.
6. Detox The Home
A basic bottle of apple cider vinegar added to 3.5 liters of warm water makes for a great anti-bacterial cleaner on most surfaces, including wooden floors and tiles. Simple!
7. Heals a Sore Throat
If you include two tablespoons of apple fruit juice vinegar to half a mug of water, you can swish around in your mouth if you get a sore throat.
8. Treats Insects Bites
If you have suffered an insect bite, a spot of apple cider vinegar and water (a 50:50 mixture) can be applied to the bite to ease the agony and aid healing.
9. Soothes Sunburn
As we anticipate spring, apple cider vinegar is amazing at helping lessen the aggravation of sunburn – cooling the skin and the burning sensation. Stir up a solution of 25% ACV and 75% water, and apply to the sunburn with a washcloth. Alternatively you can add some apple cider vinegar to your bath.
10. Gets Rid of Warts
Drench a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and tape it to your wart overnight, keeping it there for as long as it takes.
