Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is our new obsession. It’s effective for pretty much anything, your skin, your hair, your house, and even your pets can benefit from its qualities. Raw, organic, unfiltered, and unpasteurized, ACV is so much more than a salad dressing! Here are 10 reasons for you to drink ACV!
It’s made from apple juice and is fermented to hard apple cider. It’s then fermented a second time to become apple cider vinegar. By using ACV in lieu of other products, we instantly decrease the consumption of unnatural chemicals in our homes and daily lives.
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a rinse for your hair after shampooing, and it will boost your hair’s body and shine. Use it several times a week for dramatic results.
Dilute ACV with two parts water, and spread the concoction over your face with a cotton ball to replace your current toner. You can do this at night after washing, and in the morning before you apply your moisturizer. A dab of ACV can also be left on the skin overnight to fade age spots or acne scars.
Rub teeth directly with apple cider vinegar, and rinse with water.
Add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath, and soak for 10 minutes to eliminate discomfort from sunburn.
Fill a bottle with equal parts apple cider vinegar and water, and shake before applying to the face.
Rubbing apple cider vinegar on your hands and feet will give massage-like benefits and relief to tired hands and feet.
For daily weight management, add 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 16 ounces of water. This concoction can be sipped throughout the day. ACV will help you in losing weight.
The body constantly strives to achieve a state of equilibrium. Apple cider vinegar helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline pH level. Higher acid levels (lower pH level) lead to a lack of energy and higher incidences of infection. Hence, your desire to sip some a few times a day for a natural boost of energy.
As part of balancing the body’s pH, ACV creates an overall detoxification of the body. It can help stimulate cardiovascular circulation and help detoxify the liver.
