 By Martha Anderson

You either love apple cider vinegar or you hate it but either way you can’t deny its health benefits. Apple Cider Vinegar is a fermented product made from crushed and aged apples. The healthiest versions of ACV are those that contain “the mother” which is a colony of beneficial bacteria with many health benefits.

ACV is naturally high in phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, calcium and others. It has been known to help with weight loss and hair issues.

When using apple cider vinegar it’s important that you find and buy organic, unpasteurized vinegar with “the Mother”. This is easily found at  most grocery stores.

ACV has a wide variety of uses and when it comes to natural remedies you can’t beat the low price for its healing properties! ACV is anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial. Below is a list of 6 Healing Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar. Buy some today. 

Stops Itching

A dab of apple cider vinegar applied with a cotton ball is commonly recommended to make a pesky mosquito bite stop itching. It will sting a bit, but it will help quell the prickly tickle.

Kills Foot Fungus

ACV is a great antifungal agent and is often useful against yeast and fungus on the skin and nails. If you have toe fungus, soak the feet in 1 cup of ACV in water or apply directly to the affected area. For skin fungus or yeast, apply a 25/75 mixture of ACV and water. You many experience a gentle burn which means it’s working deep to rid the fungus. ACV is powerful and will help clear up even the worst cases of fungus.

Lowers Blood Sugar Levels

ACV is an old folk remedy used for years by diabetics to help lower their glucose levels. Several studies have shown its positive effect on blood glucose levels; a 2007 study of participants with type-2 diabetes found that two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed lowered glucose in the morning by 4 to 6 percent.

Dandruff Treatment

Apple Cider Vinegar can be very effective against dandruff. Mix with equal parts water and apply to scalp with spray bottle or cloth. Leave on for 1-2 hours with a shower cap and rinse. This can be done 1-2 times a week for best results.

Natural Treatment for Acid Reflux and Heartburn

Move over “Tums” and make room for Apple Cider Vinagar. When it comes to heartburn, indegestion and acid reflux ACV is the king. ACV mimics the acidic environment of the stomach and helps food to break down. People who use it finds that it reduced symptoms of reflux or heartburn since these conditions are caused by too little stomach acid, rather than too much. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 4 ounces water will normally do the trick.

Helps Kill Candida (yeast) in the Body

If you suffer from yeast overgrowth in the body ACV might help. Research has shown that the acid and enzymes in Apple Cider Vinegar help kill excess yeast in the body. People suffering with severe yeast problems, the symptoms may get worse initially when they begin taking ACV. This is caused by the die off of the yeast, called a Herxheimer reaction, when the body can’t remove the toxins from the yeast fast enough. It is actually a good sign, though an uncomfortable one. If you suspect you have yeast overgrowth, consider taking 1 tsp- 1 TBSP of ACV in water before each meal or twice a day, preferably on an empty stomach.
