Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is commonly used in salad dressings and as a secret ingredient to liven up other dishes. Even just a spoonful of ACV added to a cake recipe can make it come out fluffier and lighter every time! ACV certainly comes in handy in the kitchen, but it can also help you out in just about every other aspect of your life.
From helping lower blood sugar levels to using it as a natural house cleaner, here are some of the most surprising uses for apple cider vinegar!
21.Helps Ease Cold Symptoms
Apple cider vinegar just might be your saving grace the next time you have a cold. Sooth your sore throat by gargling a diluted solution of ACV and dissolved table salt. This will kill bacteria and help you feel better faster.
You can unclog a stuffy nose by sitting in front of a bowl of hot, steamy water that has ACV in it. The scent and steam will clear up blocked nasal passages caused by a cold, allergies, or sinus infections.
20.Works As A Natural House Cleaner
Apple cider vinegar works well as a natural alternative to the every-day bathroom and kitchen cleaners made with harsh chemicals. Its active cleaning agent is acetic acid, which is safe for most surfaces and kills bacteria on a cellular level.
As well as removing dirt and grime, ACV can effectively kill mold and E. coli when combined with table salt or hydrogen peroxide. Just be sure mix in a gallon of water for every cup of ACV that you use.
19.Lowers Blood Sugar Levels
Apple cider vinegar has scientifically proven in a small study to aid patients with type 2 diabetes and those with high blood sugar. ACV works to improve’s the body’s insulin sensitivity to meals that are high in refined carbs and sugars.
Just a couple spoonfuls of ACV before bedtime can work wonders for you by morning. Just be sure to check with your doctor if incorporating apple cider vinegar in place of blood-sugar-lowering medications will be safe for you.
