In the end, there are some recipes of apple cider vinegar which can also help you so make sure you read the whole article.

So let's begin...

What is apple cider vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar has come into major popularity in the last couple of years for good reason because there are many health benefits to apple cider vinegar.

The way you make it is you cut apples. You crushed them and mix them with yeast.

Yeast turns to sugar from apples into alcohol which is how you make cider. Then bacteria added that ferments.

The alcohol into acidic acid is the main portion of apple cider vinegar. It is the main active ingredient. Even though it only makes up about 5% of apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is a low-calorie drink. It has about 3 calories per tablespoon and no carbs. It is really high in amino acids and antioxidants which is great for gut health and overall health.

In general, It also works as an amazing disinfectant and anti-bacterial. It is awesome for killing bacteria on your skin for cleaning around your house too.

There are other several benefits that I'm are going over today and I will get a little bit more in-depth.

Let us jump over to the seven apple cider vinegar benefits.

A) Weight loss

Apple cider vinegar has been shown to be very helpful in weight loss from studies. You will consume fewer calories.

Science shows if you consume apple cider vinegar and the reason this is because apple cider vinegar makes your stomach feel fuller for longer periods of time.

What I recommend doing is put a tablespoon or half tablespoon in a pinnacle of water and drinking it right before you eat dinner.

Studies show that you will consume fewer calories. What I have also seen is that it will help decrease triglycerides.

It will decrease body fat percentage. It will also help decrease your belly fat.

B) Acne

Due to it's anti-bacterial and disinfecting properties, apple cider vinegar may kill acne-causing bacteria.

It has not been studied as far as apple cider vinegar goes. This has not been studied with acne but acidic acid has been studied and has been shown to be beneficial for acne which is awesome.

Apple cider vinegar can even help with scarring and discoloration as well. Because on the skin it can act as a chemical peel.

You do need to be careful if you are applying apple cider vinegar to your skin.

You do want to dilute it. I would start with half and half dilution with water. You do not want to apply it to any broken skin or open wound.

Because it does have the ability to burn your skin. However, it can be awesome for acne

C) Hair

Apple cider vinegar can help make your hair shine a little bit more.

It can help with your scalp care as well. When you mix this with water this is actually great for the outer layer of your hair and it hardens the outer layer and it flattens your cuticle.

This results in the shiny hair but it is also a gentle exfoliant. You could use it on your scalp to help with itchiness and you can use it on your scalp to help with dandruff too.

It is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It is a great overall thing for dandruff itchy scalp and just making your hair shine.

To make a conditioner solution mix 2 to 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with about 16 ounces of filtered water.

Then 2 to 3 drops of lavender oil and treat it like a conditioner.

You put it in your hair. Rub it in, exfoliate and then let it sit for about a minute or two then just wash it off like you would in a conditioner.

D) Face Wash

 Apple cider vinegar can help to decrease the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and even sunburns.

Now to make a homemade face wash with apple cider vinegar.

You can take a 1/4 cup of liquid castile soap. Mix that with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.

Just wash your face nightly as you normally would. This will really help to decrease all the oil and debris on your skin.

And it will help to decrease wrinkles, acne, and scarring.

E) Skin Toner

Skin toner is made to cleanse and tighten the skin that is exactly what apple cider vinegar does.

It helps tighten your skin cells and what that is going to do is act as a toner.

Essentially that is pretty much how it works to make this. You mix one part of apple cider vinegar with 2 parts of water.

Spray it on to organic cotton round and rub it on your skin wherever you would like.

It will help reduce wrinkles and pretty much discoloration like I talked about earlier 

F) Acid Reflux

Acid reflux occurs when the acid from your stomach flows backward into your esophagus and you get that sour taste in your mouth and burning sensation in your chest.

People have claimed that apple cider vinegar can help to alleviate acid reflux.

However, there have been no studies on this the acidity of the stomach apple cider vinegar is going to help with that.

It is going to balance your stomach's. It should help theoretically with that acid reflux that you have got going on to drink it.

Try adding one tablespoon and adding it to a cup of water.

I talked about this a little bit earlier. You can add a little bit of lemon or something like that to it as well cinnamon for taste. 

I will talk about recipes a little bit later on.

G) Heartburn

Heartburn is the same thing as indigestion. It is the same thing as acid reflux in a way and you can take apple cider vinegar.

But some people like to take apple cider vinegar too.

Apple cider vinegar supplements that can be easier if you don't like the taste of it.

Best ways to take apple cider vinegar

i) As Supplement

This really eliminates the taste of apple cider vinegar. You still get the benefits of it which are awesome.

I like Zhou's cider detox because apple cider vinegar is blended with other awesome antioxidants like organic cayenne pepper, turmeric, and ginger.

It can really help with digestion and overall detoxification and so number two way to take.

ii) As Drinking

It is drinking it for pleasure. Following the five recipes, I'm about ready to go over once you get all those or once you start drinking.

It the key thing I'm trying to get at is. If you do drink it drink organic from the mother.

I like organic from the mother Bragg's but you can find any organic from the mother at your grocery store.

The recipes that I'm going to talk about here in just a little bit.

iii) As Daily Shot 

It's like a drinking shot is what I am talking about. Some of them can actually taste really great.

I like what is called the twisted shot because they blend it with ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric, cayenne, and a little bit of honey sweetened it up a little bit.

You should try it out.
