Most of us have heard of the term superfood, but what about superfluid? Okay, we haven’t heard of that either, but we have heard of all the amazing reasons to use Apple Cider Vinegar. We’re also heard that even those who don’t usually turn to natural remedies are noticing the incredible benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, too. So what else you can use Apple Cider Vinegar for besides healthy hair? We think a list of what you CAN’T use it for is probably shorter, but read on to find out about six awesome things you can do with Apple Cider Vinegar, and why the next big superfood might not even be a food at all.
Apple Cider Vinegar is a power tool when used as an all-purpose cleaner! This non-toxic solution is a natural disinfectant. It can be used for almost any kind of cleaning, from wiping down walls to wiping out unpleasant refrigerator smells. Lots of Apple Cider Vinegar fans already swear by using it as their laundry detergent, too.
Okay, we know what you’re thinking. Is the alternative to smelling like body odor going to make me smell like salad dressing? Believe it or not, the answer is no. Apple Cider Vinegar absorbs body odor without synthetic fragrance. It’s scent disappears as it dries. If you’ve run out of your usual PRIMAL PIT PASTE, apply some Apple Cider Vinegar on your underarms for all day freshness.
Sore Throat Remedy
We’ve heard some people use whiskey, but we wouldn’t recommend it ourselves. The answer is actually in your cupboard. Apple Cider Vinegar’s antibacterial properties help fight infection and boost the body’s immune system. Adding a few teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to 8 oz. of warm water can put you just a few sips away from sore throat relief.
Beauty and Skincare
Who says looking good should be complicated? Apple Cider Vinegar could be your skin’s drink of choice! Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural astringent. It fights acne and breakouts by removing dirt, oil and makeup. It also dissolves dead skin cells and is known to be a chemical-free wart remover.
Apple Cider Vinegar works as a skin-care essential with its ability to fade bruises, too. Just like Aloe Vera, ACV is also a sunburn soother. Apple Cider Vinegar is a great natural teeth whitener, too! After you’re done putting it on basically every inch of your skin, why not try applying some to your teeth?
A non-caffeinated energy boost? It might sound crazy, but over half of adults drink coffee. This same percentage of people also say they don’t get enough sleep. If you’re looking for a better alternative, you’ve found it! Apple Cider Vinegar doesn’t just boost immunity, it also has the ability to aid in digestion and pump up the body’s metabolism. Those who incorporate drinking ACV into their day know it’s a great natural energy booster.
Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in vitamins, enzymes and minerals. That makes it great for detoxing. ACV works to restore pH levels and remove toxic waste. That’s another reason why it’s one of our favorite clarifiers for hair. You can use Apple Cider Vinegar to help detox your body by ingesting it, but make sure to dilute it first. Remember to always use the organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized kind like Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar, too. Try making a detox drink by mixing it with hot lemon water or green tea.
