Apple cider vinegar, or ACV, is a vinegar that is made from cider or apple must. It’s been around since the dawn of time and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. It can be used for salad dressings, as a food preservative, in sauces and chutneys and even as an appetite suppressant. It also has a plethora of other uses and benefits and today we’re going to discuss what some of those are.

What ACV Should I Get?

Before we take a look at the amazing health benefits of apple cider vinegar, let’s see what type of ACV you should get. As a general rule, apple cider vinegar is quite affordable and widely available. This is why, we recommend you invest just a little bit of time into finding a really good one. Our advice is not to buy the first one you find, and try, at least, to find one that is a bit more special. For example, we recommend getting an organic, raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar. This type of vinegar has mother in it, which are beneficial bacteria; it’s what makes your ACV magic. Try the Bragg brand of apple cider vinegar; Heinz also do great vinegars!

·         Cleansing the Liver

Why use expensive pills when you can do a liver cleanse with something as harmless and inexpensive as apple cider vinegar. The liver’s primary job is to cleanse your whole body, get rid of toxins and waste products that your blood wants to get rid of.

Mix one or two tablespoons of AV with 8 oz. of pure water (you can add honey to make it more palatable) and drink the mixture on an empty stomach. We recommend you do this for 10 days, during which you should give up fatty foods, fried foods and sugar. We guarantee that you will feel great!
