Benefits of apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is one of my top two natural remedies that I use every day along with my coconut oil obsession.  I recommend it to my friends and family and use it personally for several reasons including detoxification, improved digestion and for a quick burst of energy. Also, apple cider vinegar has many uses for personal care reasons like conditioning my hair, whitening my teeth and as a household cleaner.
  • One of my favorite apple cider vinegar uses is to soothe a sunburn. Living in Florida, I deal with this quite often. Put 1 cup of apple cider vinegar in a lukewarm bath along with 1/4 cup of coconut oil. 
  • Apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural teeth whitener. Take your finger and rub apple cider vinegar on your teeth for 1 minute.  Then rinse mouth out with water.  The pH of apple cider vinegar can remove stains from your teeth which helps naturally whiten.
  • Apple cider vinegar can be used as a natural hair conditioner and makes your hair shine naturally!  Take an old shampoo bottle or spray bottle and fill it will 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of water.  You can pour or spray this on your hair after shampooing three times per week for best results.
  • As you may already know, bad bacteria and yeast are a major cause of body odor.  The armpit can stay damp which also makes it a breading ground for bad bacteria. By simply dabbing some apple cider vinegar into your armpit you can kill yeast and neutralize odors, keeping you smelling fresh all day
  • Use it as a facial tonerThe pH of apple cider vinegar makes it an excellent remedy for skin issues. 
  • Acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar can not only detox your body from the inside out but it can speed up your metabolism, balance blood sugar, and improve diabetes. Put apple cider vinegar on salads or consume 1 tablespoon in water before meals.
