Apple Cider Vinegar

Many people claim apple cider vinegar to be the "Wonder Drug". Unlike other vinegars apple cider vinegar, due to it's natural processing, contains more enzymes and minerals than any other vinegar. It is rich in antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, beta carotene, three different forms of Vitamin B, bioflavonoids, ect....and many minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, sulfur, iron, ect. 
All these ingredients help in fighting bacteria and reducing inflammation which is why it is claimed to be one of the best natural ACNE cures!!!
It is also claimed to be helpful with constipation, headaches, arthritis, weak bones, indigestion, high cholesterol, diarrhea..cha cha cha, eczema, sore eyes, chronic fatigue, mild food poisoning, hair loss, high blood pressure, obesity, along with many more...as you can see this is why it is also none as the 'Wonder Drug'

Note: It must be the REAL apple cider vinegar, which of course is RAW , UNFILTERED and ORGANIC in order for it to be beneficial. It's not clear! It is a brownish color and you will see like some gunk floating in it, this is none as 'mother' and means it's of good quality with all the nutrients and health giving properties intact.

I have and use Braggs

Note: With The "Mother"

Different ways of consumption:
As a health tonic (drink) - Take 2 tablespoons of ACV to one cup water and drink. If your not a fan of vinegar then chug quickly LOL! You can add a little honey to it if you like, raw organic honey is best! 
They say it is best to do this first thing in the morning. Doing it first thing in the morning helps eliminate constipation, which is the cause of many diseases.
For acne, they recommend doing it first thing in the morning and right before bed and that you should see a difference in your skin in about 3 weeks with improved skin texture and leaving you radiant and glowing.
You can also use the ACV on salads as a dressing or as a base for a marinade for meats with an assortment of spices. 

For acne it can also be used as a face toner and spot treatment for pimples.
Face toner: Get an empty bottle (I used a travel size bottle I had laying around) and take one part ACV to 3 parts water. Apply this to acne to prone areas with a cotton ball, up to twice a day. Followed by a moisturizer as the ACV will dry up your face.
I just made a bottle of it yesterday but haven't tried it yet, I will let you know my thoughts on it, I'm hoping I doesn't make my face smell like vinegar, that wouldn't be cool ; /

As a spot treatment just take the toner mix and put on the tip of a cotton swab and dab on pimple, up to twice a day!

ACV is also known for getting rid of warts including difficult plantar warts on the bottom of the foot. Soak a piece of cotton with ACV and put on wart covering with a bandaid every night until gone. Time varies from person to person.

Braggs also makes these drinks with their ACV and I think they are great!

My favorite is the Apple Cinnamon, taste like your drinking an apple pie! ; )~

OK well just wanted to share, I'm gonna start doing the tonic every morning and before bed. I have been doing it most mornings since I got back from Spain but realized a few days ago I was only doing 2 teaspoons or less not 2 tablespoons like it says so...
Also do the toner every so often as long as it doesn't make me reek of vinegar, I guess if it did doing it at night would be the best option...
We'll see.....

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:
