Apple Cider Vinegar

Published by admin on 10-Apr-2018 14:00 (340 reads)


Everyone has heard of Apple Cider Vinegar, but not everyone knows why their is so much excitement about it, especially with people who like to take responsibility for their own health. It has been popular for centuries and is the 'go to' for many of us who are serious about natural ways of living without harsh chemicals.

Apple cider vinegar (or ACV) is made from apple cider that has fermented, which then creates health-promoting probiotics and enzymes, giving it significantly less sugar and fewer calories than apple cider or apple juice. It only takes one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, which is only about 3 to 5 calories containing minimal sugar, to take advantage of the health benefits of apple cider vinegar.

The best and only, ACV that is used for health, is raw,organic and unfiltered so that it still contains the "mother", which you will be able to see as a globular mass and will make the vinegar cloudy.

Apple Cider Vinegar is known and proven, for the following health benefits:-

Apple Cider Vinegar Regulates Blood Sugar Levels - To keep blood sugar levels stable, try diluting one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water and consume before meals. Its also a good idea, to moderate carbohydrate intake, increase your consumption of fiber and protein foods and
get in plenty of regular physical activity to drop blood sugar levels even more.

Apple Cider Vinegar Enhances Weight Loss - I have seen quite a lot of people use ACV as an aid to weight loss. Just 2 tablespoons of ACV per day will help, but remember that a healthy diet and regular exercise is also needed.

Apple Cider Vinegar Lowers Cholesterol
- Cholesterol is a fat like substance that can build up in the arteries, causing them to narrow and harden.

Apple Cider Vinegar can promote heart health by helping to keep cholesterol levels low. Studies have shown that supplementing rats with apple cider vinegar was able to reduce bad LDL cholesterol while also increasing beneficial HDL
cholesterol. A tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar in your diet each day, along with other healthy choices is all that is needed.

Apple Cider Vinegar Improves Skin Health - ACV doesn't just effect your internal health it can also improve your external health. ACV helps treat acne and can help reduce scarring. Make up a wash with ACV and water.

Apple Cider Vinegar Reduces Blood Pressure - ACV benefits your blood pressure levels, helping to keep your heart healthy and strong. A tablespoon or two in a large glass of water taken daily can help regulate your blood pressure. Other natural ways to lower blood pressure include increasing your intake of
magnesium and potassium, upping your fiber intake and swapping the salt and processed foods for whole foods.

Apple Cider Vinegar Relieves Symptoms of Acid Reflux - dilute one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water and drink just before eating. Also, remember to follow a diet rich in vegetables, healthy fats and fermented foods to rid you of symptoms even more.

Apple Cider Vinegar Boosts Gut Health - Organic raw ACV, can add a healthy dose of beneficial bacteria into your diet. This bacteria can enhance the health of your digestive system and deliver a host of added gut bacteria benefits like increased immunity and an improved ability to digest and absorb nutrients. Drink one to two tablespoons a day in a large glass of water, along
with other fermented foods for best results.

Apple Cider Vinegar Soothes Sunburn - 1 cup of ACV, 1/4 cup coconut oil and some lavender essential oil in a lukewarm bath can provide relief.

Apple Cider Vinegar treats Fungal infections
- Athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, or yeast infections can be easily treated with the help of ACV. Creating an antifungal spray is one of the most effective apple cider vinegar uses. For a finger nail fungul infection try soaking your finger in 1 teaspoon of ACV in a glass of water for several minutes a few times a day until it clears.

Apple Cider Vinegar can alleviate symptoms of Varicose Veins - Combine Witch Hazel and ACV and rub in a circular motion to help improve circulation.

Apple Cider Vinegar can remove Warts - Try soaking a cotton wool ball in ACV, cover with a bandage and leave overnight. Keep doing this and it will eventually fall off.

Apple Cider Vinegar kills Fleas - Equal parts water and ACV in a spray bottle and applied to your pets fur once a day will eventually kill the fleas.

Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural remedy for Seasonal Allergies - ACV promotes immunity and support to help drain your lymphatic system. Try drinking 2 tablespoons diluted in a large glass of water with some local raw honey next time your allergies are acting up.

Apple Cider Vinegar can be used as a Natural Deodorant - Because the armpits are a breeding spot for bacteria which can lead to body odor using the powerful antibacterial properties of ACV can help. Just apply direct to your underarms.

Apple Cider Vinegar can help keep your Hair Shiny - For dull or dry hair, give apple cider vinegar a try. Making an ACV hair rinse prevents dryness, makes it smell great and helps hair stay shiny and lustrous. Dilute 2 tablespoon of ACV in 2 cups of water and add a couple of drops of rosemary essential oil (you can put this mixture into a squeeze bottle if it is easier for you to apply). After shampooing and conditioning pour the mixture over your hair evenly and work into your scalp. Let it sit for a couple of minutes
and then rinse out well.

Apple Cider Vinegar Balances Your Bodies pH - Although acetic acid, the primary component in apple cider vinegar, is acidic, it has an alkalizing effect on the body. A few tablespoons of ACV per day can keep your pH levels balanced to help optimize health.

Apple Cider Vinegar makes a great Household Cleaner - Mix equal parts ACV with water to make an all-natural household cleaner. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, it’s perfect for killing off germs and keeping the house spotless. I like to add a few drops of essential oils as well.

Apple Cider Vinegar Whitens Teeth - Although overdoing this is not recommended because it could actually erode your tooth enamel used moderately it can work well. Try brushing your teeth a couple of times a week with ACV and rinse well.

Apple Cider Vinegar Relieves Cold Symptoms - Drink a large glass of water with a couple of tablespoons of ACV to relieve cold symptoms fast. The beneficial bacteria in ACV and give your immune system a quick boost.

Apple Cider Vinegar can Aid Detoxification - ACV can help balance your pH, encourage lymphatic drainage and enhance circulation, making it a great tool when it comes to detoxification. The typical dosage is one to two tablespoons ACV mixed with water a few times per day.


Although Apple Cider Vinegar is healthy and safe for most people, consuming large amounts can lead to some negative effects on health.

Apple Cider Vinegar side effects include erosion of tooth enamel, burning of the throat or skin and decreased levels of potassium.

Be sure to always dilute Apple Cider Vinegar in water instead of drinking it straight to prevent negative side effects. You should also start with a low dose and work your way up to assess your tolerance.

If you’re taking blood sugar medications, talk to your doctor before using Apple Cider Vinegar. Because apple cider vinegar may help reduce blood sugar levels, you may need to modify your dosage of diabetes medications to prevent hypoglycemia symptoms.

Finally, while there are a wide range of Apple Cider Vinegar uses, it shouldn’t be viewed as a quick fix or cure when it comes to your health. Instead, it should be paired with a nutritious diet and healthy lifestyle to really see results.

With the above in mind, it always a good idea to not consume on a daily basis indefinitely. 5 days a week will still give you all the benefits. Remember to include a healthy nutritious diet, lifestyle and exercise.
