40 Uses of ACV
Natural Cures

1. Soothes A Sore Throat

Vinegar is naturally antibacterial, so it can help kill any harmful bacteria that may be causing you discomfort in your throat.

Combined with honey, a powerful antiviral and anti-inflammatory, ACV works better than most cough syrups.

To use, combine 1 tsp ACV, 1 tsp cayenne pepper and 3 tsp raw honey in a glass of warm water. Cayenne pepper will help relieve any lingering pain.

2. Eases Gas and Constipation

Vinegar has a similar acidity to hydrochloric acid, the acid produced in your stomach that helps break down food.

Simply dilute a tablespoon of ACV into warm tea and drink before a heavy meal.

3. Relieves Heartburn

Heartburn can be caused by your body producing too little stomach acid. In fact, naturopaths often suggest taking a tablespoon of ACV with a bit of honey if you feel any symptoms coming on.

4. Soothes Sunburn

For quick relief, pour a lukewarm bath and add a cup or two of ACV into the water. Soak for ten minutes. This will help restore your skin’s ph making your skin feel cool and soothed.

5. Relieves Burns

Similarly to how ACV eases pain in sunburns, it can also help with first degree burns. Simply apply a little ACV onto a burn to quickly relieve pain. However, do not use it on open wounds or 2nd or 3rd degree burns.

6. Heals Bruises

To help diminish the appearance of bruises, warm up a cup of ACV and mix in a teaspoon of sea salt. Apply to the bruise as a hot compress every day until the bruise subsides.

7. Treats Fungal Infection

Use AVC for topical infections such as ringworms or athlete’s foot. Simply use a cotton pad to apply ACV directly to affected area or soak in a solution made of 1 part ACV 5 parts water for 30 minutes daily.

To treat toe fungus, you’ll need to follow a more extensive regime.

8. Soothe Sore Muscles

After a hard at work or at the gym, take a tablespoon of ACV with water or apply it topically onto the affected area. For generalized pain, add a cup or two of ACV to a hot bath and soak for 10-20 minutes.

9. Relieve a Stubborn Itch

Some itches never seem to quit. Instead of reaching for your polysporin, saturate a q-tip in ACV and apply directly to the itch. It might sting a little, but the itch will quickly subside.

10. Combat Insulin Sensitivity

ACV helps to control glucose metabolism and stabilize blood sugar. Use it in warm water before and after meals to help keep you diabetes in check.

11. Clears Sinuses

Another cold remedy! Drinking a tablespoon of ACV diluted in a warm glass of water will help break up mucus and relieve stuffiness.

12. Circulates Lymph

Naturopaths suggest ½ tablespoon of ACV in lemon water to help circulate lymph and blood.

13. Boosts Energy

Simply add a little to your morning tea or water for a quick boost.

14. Heals an Upset Stomach

An upset stomach can have many different causes and can be hard to treat. However, ACV is one of the best all-around remedies to ease nausea and stomach pain.

Combine 2 teaspoons of ACV, 1 tablespoon on freshly grated ginger and a one tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon into a paste.

Stir it into 8 ounces sparkling water and top it off with a little raw honey to improve the taste.
