For a long time, Apple Cider Vinegar has been considered a remedy for many ills. Proponents use it to treat all sorts of things, from skin disorders to problems with digestion. I decided to do a bit of research on this popular home remedy, and here are the top benefits I found:
1. Better Skin
You can use apple cider vinegar diluted with water as a toner for your skin. People with rosacea and acne have reported good results using ACV in this manner.
2. Healthier Heart
Some studies have shown that ingesting ACV can lower your blood pressure and have other beneficial effects on your heart health.
3. Removes Bad Breath
ACV has also been shown to help people with bad breath.
4. Better Digestion
ACV is highly fermented and can kill off many of the bad bacteria residing in your gut, leading to better overall digestion. I you use ACV for this purpose, take 1 tablespoon before each meal.
5. Energy Boost
Although evidence on this is a bit scant, many people have reported having more energy once they started taking apple cider vinegar. If you’ve been feeling tired, you may want to give ACV a try.
So how can you benefit from ACV? There are actually ACV supplements you can purchase, but in my opinion, the best way to go is to simply drink some of it in the morning and evening. A typical dose people use is 1 tablespoon twice a day. Do not drink ACV undiluted as it will be too strong and may damage your stomach. Instead, dilute it in some water or juice.
Should you decide you’d rather take the supplement, I recommend shopping at a well-known online vitamin store like Lucky Vitamin. You should also do a search for coupons to see if you can get any special deals.
Another article I posted recently is about e-cigarettes, which you may want to consider if you are a smoker and want a healthier alternative.
