Of all the hyped-up health trends out there, apple cider vinegar is no gimmick. I would know; I’ve tried them all (rollie eyes). Think of Apple cider vinegar as the all-in-one health booster, offering all sorts of benefits to keep you detoxified and glowing. I use it loyally everyday because the results are real. Curious yet? Here are 6 Reasons we love apple cider vinegar.
1. Gut cleanser
Got tummy troubles? The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar helps kill off the bad bacteria in your gut to promote good digestion. It basically acts as a natural antibiotic. You’ll have less bloat and less of that, you know, “air flow”.
Take a shot of apple cider vinegar every morning before breakfast to boost digestive system.
2. Facial toner
Forget about fancy skin brands. Apple cider vinegar acts as a natural toner, helping to keep your skin clear and clean— affordably! It contains lactic acid to safely exfoliate dead skin cells and help shrink pores, leaving your complexion fresh and polished.
3. Spot treatment
Pimples are a tough deal, especially the stubborn, deep ones. Well, apple cider vinegar has something for that too! Its natural antibacterial properties work to dry out and clean your pimple, allowing it to shrink.
Use a cotton ball to apply some to your pimple and let it heal overnight.
4. Scalp cleanser
A healthy scalp means healthy hair. We can use apple cider vinegar to exfoliate our hair follicles, clearing away dandruff so they can breathe. Overtime, as your hair follicles become stronger, your hair will grow shinier and sexier.
Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to half a cup of water and pour the mixture over your scalp and massage. Let it settle for an hour before shampooing.
5. Energy booster
Interestingly, apple cider vinegar act as a weight loss booster. It contains potassium and enzymes that help detox your body, making you feel less tired. So in the future, when you’re feeling sluggish, add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to water or a veggie smoothie to improve up your mood.
6. Scar lightener
The energy-boosting powers of apple cider vinegar also works for healing scars. Amazing, right? The natural acid works to naturally and safely lighten dark spots on your skin. It’s also anti-inflammatory which helps improve discoloration. No wonder we can't get enough!
