I’ve been drinking Apple Cider Vinegar daily in the morning after my ANIKA’S Detox Powder ( will be adding a new blog it soon) I whip up a little shot and down it goes. It’s not a magical weight loss elixir, but it does have tons of incredible uses and benefits.
If you’re on the coconut oil train, this is it’s sister cure all. They are often used together for even greater results! Apple Cider Vinegar can be used for a million different things, even cleaning your house and face. That’s right, face.
ACV is made from aged apples that are crushed and fermented. Make sure you get the organic, raw and un-filtered kind. These types have the most vitamins, minerals and healthy bacteria. (Mmmmm delicious!)
While it is pretty amazing, it’s still VINEGAR. It honestly tastes and smells TERRIBLE, but it’s TOTALLY worth it!
1. Detox Time
Apple Cider Vinegar helps your body reach a natural alkaline ph level. It’s full of vitamins and minerals which can cleanse your liver and intestines. One of the best parts about it is that it can aid in digestion, de-bloating and weight loss.
There was one diabetes study a while back that found participants who took two tablespoons of vinegar prior to two meals per day lost an average of two pounds over the four-week period. Of course every body is different, but with all of the additional benefits.. then why not.
I Like to use organic ACV to make this healthy shot each day, first thing in the morning.
- 2 Tbs ACV
- 1 Cup warm water
- Sprinkle of Turmeric
you just can’t handle this little elixir as is, try adding a bit of raw honey to the mix to cut the vinegar taste. You will literally feel your insides get warm as it gets to work.
2. Give Your Skin a Healthy Glow!
There are two awesome ways I LOVE to use it to help my skin stay free of pimples and acne. The first is simply by drinking the detox elixir above.
The second is using it as a toner on your skin. Because of all of the anti-bacterial benefits, ACV will actually help clean and heal the skins surface. I also will add it to my clay mask once a week for some amazing feeling skin. After, I usually use a small amount of coconut oil to really moisturize and continue the amazing skin transformation.
3. Ditch the Dandruff
You can use the vinegar as a rinse after shampooing your hair to help cleanse your roots and actually add shine, naturally.
4. Perk Up Those Pearly Whites
Just by rubbing a little on your teeth you can help remove stains from your teeth naturally. I like to dip my toothbrush in ACV and a little baking soda for even more whitening effect.
So if those reasons weren’t enough for you to want to run out and grab a bottle, here are a few more:
- Lowers Cholesterol
- Heals Sunburn
- All Purpose house cleaner
- Salad Dressing
- Natural Aftershave
- Air Freshener
- Reduce Heartburn
- Soothe Sunburn
- Cooking (anytime it calls for vinegar)
I still haven’t tried all of the amazing uses for Apple Cider Vinegar, but I definitely plan to.
Hope you liked this blog and try using this awesome ACV drink..
