Why is apple cider vinegar so good for you?

1.) It can help cure tummy troubles:  If you have a bacterial infection, apple cider vinegar could help contain the problem, thanks to its antibiotic properties. Some folk remedy experts contend that apple cider vinegar contains pectin, which can help soothe intestinal spasms. Try mixing one or two tablespoons into water, or clear juice like apple juice.

2.) It soothes a sore throat: Mix 1/4 cup acv and 1/4 warm water and gargle every hour. Most germs can’t survive the acidic environment the vinegar creates.

3.) It prevents indigestion: If you know you are going to be indulging in a meal that will hurt you later add 1 tsp honey and 1 tsp acv to warm water and drink it 30 minutes before you are going to eat.

4.) It clears a stuffy nose: ACV contains potassium, which thins mucus; and the acetic acid in it prevents bacteria growth, which could contribute to nasal congestion. Mix a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink to help sinus drainage.

5.) It can help in weight loss: The acetic acid suppresses your appetite, increases your metabolism, and reduces water retention.

6.) It gets rid of dandruff: The acidity of apple cider vinegar changes the pH of your scalp, making it harder for yeast to grow. Mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water in a spray bottle, and spritz on your scalp. Wrap your head in a towel and let sit for 15 minutes to an hour, then wash your hair as usual. Do this twice a week for best results.

7.) It clears acne:  Apple cider vinegar makes a great natural toner that can leave skin looking healthier. Its antibacterial properties help keep acne under control, and the malic and lactic acids found in apple cider vinegar soften and exfoliate skin, reduce red spots, and balance the pH of your skin.

8.) It boosts energy: Exercise and sometimes extreme stress causes lactic acid to build up in the body, causing fatigue. Interestingly, the amino acids contained in apple cider vinegar act as an antidote. What’s more, apple cider vinegar contains potassium and enzymes that may relieve that tired feeling. Next time you’re beat, add a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar to a glass of chilled vegetable drink or to a glass of water.

9.) Helps alleviate leg cramps: Leg cramps can often be a sign that you’re low in potassium. Since apple cider vinegar is high in it, one home remedy suggests mixing 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon honey to a glass of warm water and drink to relieve nighttime leg cramps.

10.) Whitens teeth: Gargle with apple cider vinegar in the morning. The vinegar helps remove stains, whiten teeth, and kill bacteria in your mouth and gums. Brush as usual after you gargle.
