POWER INGREDIENT: APPLE CIDER VINEGARNovember 18, 2014 1:54 pm
Apple cider vinegar (or ACV) is all the rage these days, and understandably so. The healthy bacteria that grow in ACV during the fermentation process is super beneficial for the immune system, helping to balance pH levels and reduce internal inflammation, among other things.
Truth be told, our bodies are temples, and what better way to treat them as such than by incorporating this au-naturel remedy into our daily routines? That’s why I want to share with you some simple every day uses for this wonderful liquid remedy that we know as raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
Bragg, Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey Drink, $2.29
Morning tonic: It feels so good to start the day energized and upbeat! An apple cider vinegar cocktail will do just that by getting the digestive juices flowing and providing the body with an all-natural energy boost.
Hair rinse: Using a solution that contains ACV can balance out pH levels and wash away build up and dry skin from the scalp, leaving hair silkier, stronger, and more manageable from root to tip.
Toner: Apple cider vinegar is full of antibacterial properties that help to naturally detoxify the skin, digging deep into pores to draw out oil, dirt, dead skin cells and makeup residue.
Baking: I absolutely love to bake, and ACV (an acid) mixed with baking soda (a base) provides a healthy, gluten-free, vegan alternative for leavening baked goods. The combo won’t leave behind an overpowering scent of vinegar either – it cooks out when you put your batter into a heated oven.
