A boon for the skin, digestive system, hair, stuffy nose, joint pains, disinfectants, your pets, or the products in your garden. This liquid can easily be described as golden syrup. A little sour in taste, Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has countless benefits.
Who would have thought that chopping an apple and squeezing out the juices would make life so much easier? ACV is produced by bacteria and yeast is added to liquids to start the alcoholic fermentation process, and sugar is converted to alcohol.
Any alcoholic drink, whether made from apples, grapes, or dates, will naturally turn to vinegar once it’s exposed to air. Bacteria, which are always in the air, convert the alcohol in apple cider to acetic acid, which gives vinegar a pungent sour taste. In the second fermentation process, the alcohol is converted into vinegar by acetic acid-producing bacteria.
Start your day with a spoonful of ACV in a glass of warm water to detoxify your body and it will give all the doctors a good run for their money as it controls blood pressure, balances blood sugar, regulates pH, promotes good gut bacteria, and even fights cancer. Including ACV in your daily routine will change your life in all manners for the good.
Swap it with your household products as a non-toxic alternative that can replace your detergents, termite killers, odor neutralizers. Cleaning tip: Mix 1/2 cup of ACV with 1 cup water. You can use this concoction to clean microwaves, bathroom tiles, and windows.
This mixture also works as a disinfectant. ACV is not a registered disinfectant and does not kill dangerous bacteria like staphylococcus. Hydrogen peroxide has antimicrobial ingredients and can be an effective household cleaner.
As mentioned above, apple cider vinegar improves your health in many ways, including treating hiccups and colds. Some people have turned to apple cider vinegar to help with health problems such as diabetes, heart problems, cancer, high cholesterol, and weight problems. ACV can also relieve sinuses. You have to mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water and drink it three times a day to help fight allergies.
Organic ACV can help enhance the taste of your favorite recipes like soups, salads, sauces, and works excellently with balsamic vinegar. One thing for certain, a good vinegar barbecue sauce should give foods a tangy flavor. If you like that rich flavor then these are the sauces for you.
ACV has the added advantage of shiny, flake-free hair, facial toner/cleanser.
Beauty tip: Mix two tablespoons ACV with one cup of water, and use to drench your hair after washing. Rinse thoroughly, and follow with a soft conditioner. The acetic acid in ACV will remove residue from product buildup and help you get shiny, lustrous locks.
In addition to all of the above professionals, ACV acts as an excellent bad breath remover, whitens teeth, and fades bruises. Throughout history, ACV has been used to clean and disinfect military wounds, thereby accelerating wound healing. Apple cider vinegar was used for this during much of the American Civil War and up to World War I.
Although ACV is recommended and most likely safe, in some cases it may not be safe to use multiple ACVs. Consuming 8 ounces of apple cider vinegar per day can lead to low potassium levels in the long run, which in turn leads to bone weakness (osteoporosis). Additionally, we do not have sufficient evidence to demonstrate the safety of using ACV in pregnant and breastfeeding women. Therefore, they should stay in a safe place and not use it.
Clearly, ACV has more advantages than disadvantages but still commercialization in terms of ACV is still finding roots in this modern era. Acceptance from the people towards ACV is challenging due to its taste and smell. Beside that ACV is the best homemade remedy for all your problems.
