We often think of apple cider vinegar as a cooking ingredient (and it is), but it can also be used as a remedy for other things. Digestive relief, sunburn treatment and teeth whitening are just a few of the incredible health benefits of this “magic liquid.”
The organic and fermented apple juice (or double fermented hard apple cider) is left raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized to keep the “mother,” cloudy strings of beneficial enzymes, pectin, and trace minerals, intact. When used internally, externally, or for household cleaning purposes, apple cider vinegar should be shaken vigorously to dispense the “mother” throughout the bottle.
Here are 30 popular ways you can use this safe and beneficial health product…
1. Digestive Soother
It’s safe to assume that the most popular use for apple cider vinegar is digestive. “The prebiotics in ACV are incredibly beneficial to healthy microorganisms that monitor your digestive system. Drinking it can also help regulate the amount of acid in your stomach, which leads to easier digestion,” writes Reader’s Digest.
Personally, I use it as a morning tincture, dissolving a tablespoon into a glass of water to detoxify the digestive system and eliminate toxins from the organs. You can also add a touch of honey if the vinegar is too pungent on its own.
