Apple Cider Vinegar has a pungent smell that many people cannot stomach but what most people don’t know is that apple cider vinegar is an all natural healer. The list of benefits is lengthy but today we will discuss a mere 5 that could possibly change your life.
We all get the occasional stomach ache every now and then. The first sign of relief that we run to comes in a clear bottle with a white top. Yes, you guessed it Pepto-Bismol. Well, what if I told you that Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) could do the job just as good. The pectin also forms a protective coat for soothing the colon lining and intestinal spasms. The next time you’re experiencing a stomach ache try mixing two tablespoons of ACV into water or apple juice.
ACV can help kill Candida in the body and also helps kill yeast and fungus on the skin and nails. For foot or tow fungus, soak feet in 1 cup of ACV and water or apply directly to the affected area. If you have sensitive skin make sure to dilute the ACV before application. There is a firm belief that ACV helps in loosing weight by speeding up metabolism. Mix 2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water and sip throughout the day or drink this mixture before every meal.
Dandruff can be a mean, nasty thing. Sufferers of dandruff seek relief and often times end up receiving a prescription for a medicated shampoo but no fear ACV is here. Acetic acid, the main ingredient in ACV helps balance hair’s pH level, stimulate the scalp to promote hair growth, and cures dandruff. Not to mention it strengthens the hair shaft and promotes healthy, shiny hair.
ACV can be used as an acne treatment. Hundreds of sufferers of acne claim that ACV did the trick. ACV kills bacteria and balances skin’s pH level. It also absorbs excessive oil from the skin. To treat acne apply the solution directly to your skin using a cotton pad and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Afterwards rinse your face clean or for a deeper acne treatment leave it on overnight and rinse off in the morning.
All in all, these 5 basic remedies using ACV don’t do it any justice. ACV is an all natural healer that can be used in far more than 5 ways, far more than 20 ways. It’s all a matter of doing some light research.
