26 Genius Ways to Use Apple Cider Vinegar
We’re all about a great multitasker (cough, coconut oil, cough), and apple cider vinegar is no exception. This salad dressing staple has been linked to a healthier complexion, can help keep your home squeaky clean, and could help with an upset stomach and bloating to list a few uses.
Here’s what it isn’t: a magical shortcut to dropping those unwanted five pounds. In certain circles it’s been touted as a weight loss aid—though that’s still debated in the medical community. While some research suggests it may help tip the scale in your favor by lowering your blood sugar, health experts advise against using it as a weight-loss tool. And a word of warning: drinking apple cider vinegar (especially straight) comes with its share of health risks, like throat irritation and supplement and drug interaction.
That said, there are healthy ways to incorporate ACV into your daily life, and there are plenty of benefits to be gained from getting on the cider bandwagon! This vinegar is chock-full of good-for-you-nutrients like iron, calcium, and potassium that may help keep the germs in our bodies under control. It can also add flavor to your dishes and freshness to all corners of your house.
