Because Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is one of my favorite things, I am going to give you some great ways to use it! Always choose raw, unfiltered, organic, with the Mother, Bragg’s brand is my favorite.
WARNING: always dilute it (it can be harmful to the enamel of your teeth), do not use if you have stomach ulcers.
1) Becoming more Alkaline (balancing body pH) & aids in weight loss
Though vinegar is acidic, when taken internally, it has an ALKALINE effect on the body, this means that it moves you to a
slightly alkaline pH, which is a Healthy Body. Acidic bodies are SICK bodies. It also helps you to shed extra weight when
you’re decreasing your sugar intake & getting rid of processed foods/drinks.
Mix 2 teaspoons of ACV in 16 oz. filtered water, drink it 2-3 times per day.
2) Acid Reflux / Heartburn
2 teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz. filtered water, drink before each meal.
3) Fight Candida (yeast/fungus in the body)
ACV and fungus DO NOT GET ALONG…this is great news if you are suffering with a yeast overgrowth!
Add 1 tablespoon of ACV to 8 oz. filtered water before meals.
4) Relief for Sunburns or Bug Bites
For sunburns, apply ACV and water (1:3 mix) with a cotton cloth or washcloth directly to the skin to cool
and relieve pain. You can also soak in a bath of warm water with 1 cup ACV. For bug bites, apply a 50/50
mixture directly to the bite, or soak the area in the same ratio of vinegar/water.
5) Helps Leg Cramps
Low potassium levels and electrolyte imbalances can cause leg cramps, so Mix 2 teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz.
warm filtered water and drink before bed.
