Apple cider vinegar has been a wonderful addition to my holistic medicine cabinet. It is a true multitasking product that when consumed raw and organic has numerous benefits for maintaining proper pH levels in the body to clearing skin. I love Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar as seen above.
I have been including ACV as part of my morning routine for a while now with my lemon water. I mix in one tablespoon ACV, half of a lemon and about 1/2 a cup of water so it goes down easier (I don’t recommend drinking it straight as it is very potent and can harm tooth enamel as well as burn going down). This drink helps to give my metabolism a jump start first thing in the morning as well as detox my body by helping to remove toxins.
Apple cider vinegar is rich in potassium which helps to prevent brittle teeth and hair loss as well soothe the pain of leg cramps (ever heard of trying to eat a banana when you get leg cramps, ACV works great too).
Apple cider vinegar can relieve stomach pains by balancing the acid in the stomach and when taken consistently can help ward off sickness due to the concentrated mix of vitamins and minerals. When used in the morning to gargle it can help to freshen breath and whiten teeth. It can also improve energy levels and get rid of bloat when consumed daily.
These are just a few of the many benefits that apple cider vinegar can provide. Other uses include helping to relieve sunburn, getting rid of warts, a hair rinse and all-purpose cleaner.
