10 Benefits of Using Apple Cider Vinegar

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV is made by fermenting freshly crushed apple juice with raw sugar and water. The whole fermentation process for making this kind of vinegar usually takes 3 to 6 weeks.

The most popular Apple Cider Vinegar product brand that is being sold in any health food stores or SM Malls is this Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar that was named after its original maker Paul C. Bragg and his daughter Dr. Patricia Bragg.  This apple cider vinegar is certified as organic which means that all the ingredients used to make the product are all natural in nature.  It is made with raw ingredients and it is unfiltered with 'the mother' - which means that it contains all the natural goodness for your health benefits.

Top 10 Benefits of Using Apple Cider Vinegar


1.  Apple Cider Vinegar promotes balanced ph levels to the digestive system.


Every morning as soon as you wake up and before doing anything else, go to the kitchen and then add 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of warm water.  Drink it fast. Gulp it in 3 seconds.  It is not like a morning coffee or tea that needs to be sipped and savored.

Think positive and just do it.  Do not worry about having a stomach ache from drinking apple cider vinegar as it will not make your tummy twist and turn from acidity and it will not give you any heartburn so early in the morning.  Do not think about the smell as that is how vinegar is suppose to smell like.  It is just normal and ordinary vinegar made out of apples, raw sugar, and water.  

In about 15 - 30 minutes, you will be surprised that the apple cider vinegar mixture you just drank will start taking effect.  It helps balance the acidity levels inside your tummy which will allow you to have an easy and smooth flow of bowel movement.  It helps promote digestion and aids in regulating a normal metabolism process so you can get rid of that bloating, gassy feeling, and constipation.

Drink this apple cider vinegar mixture daily and make it as part of your routine if you are wanting to start a healthy lifestyle and a lighter feeling before starting your day.

2.  Apple Cider Vinegar helps control and regulate your weight.


This is the very reason why I started buying this Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar.  It is organic and very affordable product that has a lot of beneficial uses for having a healthy body.  It is also very practical to just go ahead and buy it if you do not have the time to make your own DIY homemade apple cider vinegar that takes time and effort to make.  It is also better than buying expensive slimming teas that gives you diarrhea or slimming pills that are not really a natural way of losing weight.

add 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of warm water then I drink this mixture every morning before I do anything else like doing my daily exercises, running on the treadmill, going to the gym, or going out to the park for an early jogging or walk.

If you drink this mixture, you can drink water but do not eat anything else yet for at least an hour or after you are done with your daily exercise routine.  Drinking this apple cider vinegar mixture before doing your exercises will give you that boost in energy and allows you to burn excess fats to the max.  You will know that the mixture you drank is already working when you realize that you are already sweating more than you actually do on your regular exercise routine but still have the energy to keep on going without feeling tired or hungry.

Apple cider vinegar suppresses appetite and reduces water retention in the body.  You will feel more refreshed, rejuvenated, and more active without feeling hunger pains.  If you are sweating more than normal,  then it means that you are burning more fats, calories, and excreting more salt and water out of your system so make sure to carry water to drink that will to keep you hydrated while exercising.

3.  Apple Cider Vinegar helps control oily skin, pimples, eczema, and acne problems.


Whenever you wake up in the morning, or afternoon, or evening - go straight to the kitchen then add 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of warm water then drink this mixture quickly without blinking and breathing it in.  It only takes 3 to 4 big gulps to get it all down in your system.  No big deal.

Allow this apple cider vinegar mixture to work inside your system for at least 30 minutes to an hour so resist yourself from eating anything during this time. The mixture slowly cleanses the insides of your digestive tract system so it helps you get rid of unwanted wastes and body toxins easily through a proper and smooth metabolism and bowel movement.

Before, I would buy these very expensive anti-acne creams like Proactive Solutions, Maxi Peel Exfoliant cream, Clean & Clear astringents, and Ponds acne clear and skin toner.  It made my face dry and dull looking while the pimples just keep on coming back.  Use apple cider vinegar as a natural and affordable way to get rid of oily skin, embarrassing pimples, and unwanted acne on your body.

You can also use apple cider vinegar as a skin toner to be applied directly on your face or any part of your body.  Simply do this by diluting an equal amount of ACV with water like 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with 1 tablespoon of water.  Wash your face using a facial cleanser, pat wet face dry with a clean towel, then use a cotton ball or cotton round pads to absorb the mixture then simply rub it gently on your face, neck, back area, and where ever the affected area is located.  Allow the mixture to dry before applying your moisturizer, sunscreen, or make-up.  You do not need to rinse the mixture off your face and do not worry about the vinegar smell as it will dissipate when it dries off.

4.  Apple Cider Vinegar helps you achieve a youthful and glowing skin.


If you got the time and you are planning on having a peaceful, relaxing, bubble bath at night then simply add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar to your tub of running warm water and your favorite bubble bath soap.  Soak in the bath tub for as long as you need.  

The warm water will soothe and relax your aching muscles, the sweet scent of the bubble bath soap will calm for nerves and senses, while the apple cider vinegar will soothe the skin and get rid of unwanted skin impurities, dead skin cells, and harmful body toxins.

After you are done rinsing yourself, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated while your skin will be feeling cleaner, softer, smoother, more radiant, and glowing.  

Make this as a weekly beauty routine to help you keep your skin hydrated, fairer, and glowing at all times.

5.  Apple Cider Vinegar helps get rid of warts and skin tags.


I do not like the sight of my facial warts every time I look at myself in the mirror.  The warts are just so visible that instead of focusing at my entire facial appearance, my eyes are focused on those tiny little specks of imperfections located at both sides of my cheeks.

I also got these skin tags on my neck that are really annoying me every time I try to pull my hair up into a ponytail.  My eyes just start focusing on these little imperfections.  Also, I get really conscious when my husband kisses me on my neck so I decided to get rid of my skin imperfections using apple cider vinegar as it is the most affordable alternative to buying warts removal creams and skin tag removal treatments.

 I used a cotton swab to soak just the right amount of organic apple cider vinegar then I apply it directly on the warts and skin tags.  Allow the vinegar to be absorbed and soaked up by placing a black duct tape over it.  The wart of skin tag will eventually fall out depending on how well you did to soak and cover it.

6.  Apple Cider Vinegar helps get rid of itchy athlete's foot and stinky feet odor.


Find a palanggana or a deep basin that is large enough for you to soak your feet.  Add hot or warm water to fill the basin while making sure it does not overflow when you put your feet inside.  Also make sure you put hot water temperature that you can tolerate and not steaming water than can burn or harm your feet.  The water has to be right temperature to help kill the fungus, not lukewarm water.

Add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar to the hot water adjusted to the temperature that you can tolerate and then soak your feet in the mixture for at least 30 minutes or until the water turns cold under your feet.  Dry your feet with a clean towel that is specifically set aside to be used for your feet only.   

Do this feet soaking routine for a week or until your feet are healed and odor-free.  It is also advisable that you throw all your old socks that you used when you got athlete's foot and then buy new pairs of socks to prevent it from coming back.

7.  Apple cider vinegar whitens teeth and helps get rid of bad breath.



Apple cider vinegar helps to clean impurities on the tooth and the natural acidity helps to kill bacteria causing bad breath, gingivitis, and tooth decay.

Mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon baking soda with 1 cup of water.  Gargle with this mixture and swish it back and forth and sideways inside your mouth for at least 3 to 5 minutes.  Do this daily before you brush and floss your teeth.

8.  Apple cider vinegar promotes hair growth and shine.


Mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water then place mixture inside a hair spray bottle for easy application.  Spray the mixture directly on scalp then massage gently for 5-10 minutes. Do this hair treatment routine on a daily basis.

Apple cider vinegar strengthens each hair strands and protects each hair follicle so your hair will grow stronger and thicker with a shiny luster.  It can also make your hair soft, smooth, and dandruff-free.

9. Apple cider vinegar helps to lower blood sugar levels.


Add 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of warm water then drink this mixture every morning before you do anything else.

Apple cider vinegar balances the ph levels of the digestive tract system as well as cleanses your small and large intestines making it possible for you to excrete harmful wastes and body toxins.

You will know that the mixture is doing its job when you have a nice, smooth, and easy bowel movement.

Once your body is able to clean out all these harmful wastes that are blocking the food nutrients from being absorbed by the body properly, your blood sugar level should start going back to its normal level.

Make sure that you avoid eating starchy food, processed food, and sweet treats and desserts like cakes, candies, ice cream, etc.  Eat lots of vegetables and legumes but eat fruits in moderation as these contain natural sugars as well.

10. Apple cider vinegar is a good cleaning agent.


Mix ½ cup of apple cider vinegar with 1 cup water then place mixture inside a hair spray bottle for easy application. 

Use it to clean mirrors and to make windows sparkling clean and shining.

Spray the mixture on carpets and rugs to get rid of nasty smells and odors made by pets.

Use it to clean your microwave and remove stains on the kitchen stove.
