Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has many all-natural uses, going from a salad dressing to personal care and household cleaning. Lately there has been a lot of fuss around the healing powers of apple cider vinegar and enthusiasts suggest to take a tablespoon or two a day to cure everything including gout, diabetes, allergies, and cancer. Using ACV is also one of the 70 habits featured in the e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.

Although a lot of those claims are overstated or unfounded, there are many uses that are proven and have been used for ages.

However, to get the best results, you must choose the right apple cider vinegar from the market. Always opt for organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and unprocessed apple cider vinegar and not the clear stuff you find in most stores. If you try to look through the vinegar you should see a cobweb-like substance, which is the good stuff, floating in it.

1. Provide Better Nutrient Absorption

ACV is high in acetic acid. Like many other acids, acetic acid can increases your body’s ability to absorb essential minerals from the food you eat. So drinking water with ACV before meals can definitely help you to get more out of the foods you eat.

2. Improve Digestion

Some people swear by taking a few tablespoons a day to improve digestion, but long-term excessive use could cause low potassium levels and lower bone density. I don’t use apple cider vinegar on a daily basis, but it definitely helps me to cure bloating, acid reflux/heartburn, diarrhea, or stomach cramps.

ACV improves bowel movement and prevents indigestion when taken before a heavy meal. So instead of using it every day, use this mixture whenever you need it. Squeeze a whole lemon in 6 ounces of water and add 1 tablespoon of ACV (for children use half). Drink this remedy 3 times a day until symptoms disappear.

The fantastic cleansing properties of ACV help body detoxifying process, as it helps the body remove toxic waste more efficiently before it has time to do damage and it also helps to detoxify the liver. If you are interested in detoxifying your body, you can find more useful information in the e-book The Detox Guide. This guide will teach you how to use detox to cleanse and energize your body naturally and safely. You can also find detox drinks with ACV in the article How to make ACV detox drinks.

3. Ease Muscles Cramps

The same remedy as described above can be used to ease muscle cramps. If leg cramps during the night are holding you back to have a peaceful night’s rest, take one tablespoon ACV with honey to taste just before turning in. You could use the lemon water as well, but it is better to not drink a glass of water before going to bed or your sleep maybe be interrupted to go to the bathroom.

4. Kill Fungus

Whether you are struggling with a candida overgrowth or foot or skin fungus, ACV may save your day. Add 1 tablespoon ACV to a glass of water and drink before each meal. At first your candida may seem to worsen, caused by the die off of the yeast.

To get rid of skin or toe fungus soak feet in ACV or apply on the affected area. It will give a burning sensation, so if you have a sensitive skin it is best to dilute the ACV with water. You can also find other natural treatments for toenail fungus in the article 3 Simple and Effective Natural Cures for Toenail Fungus.

5. ACV Rinse For Healthy And Shiny Hair

ACV can be used as a rinse after shampooing. It will give your hair more body and a healthy, shiny look. It works well to balance the pH of your hair and scalp, it removes product build-up, and can help to fight dandruff, hair loss, and an itchy scalp. Just fill an empty shampoo bottle with ½ tablespoon ACV and one cup of cold water and use this to rinse your hair. Use this a few times a week and be amazed by the result. You may also be interested to read the article about the best natural treatments for dull hair. ACV is also good for the skin – read the article why you should wash your face with ACV.

6. Whiten Your Teeth

ACV can help you to remove stains from your teeth and give them their white look back. Rub your teeth with pure ACV and rinse thoroughly afterwards. Please note – excess acidity could erode the tooth enamel, so don’t repeat this treatments more than once to twice a week. Find here more natural methods for teeth whitening.

7. Green Cleaning

Mix ½ cup ACV with ½ cup water to clean microwaves, bathroom and kitchen surfaces, sinks, windows, and mirrors. To make things easy, add the mixture in a spray bottle and you’re ready to go.

For the tougher stains use undiluted ACV. To clean your toilet, pour undiluted ACV in your toilet and let sit overnight. ACV can be used in your dishwasher instead of your normal dish detergent, just mix ½ cup ACV with 1 cup of water.

You could save your orange or lemon peels and add them to a mason jar with ACV for 10 days, shake it up every day and use diluted or undiluted. The orange or lemon peel will release it oils to give it an extra fresh scent and antimicrobial properties.

8. Clear A Slow Drain or Remove Bad Odor

Pour ¼ cup baking soda into the drain and add ½ to 1 cup apple cider vinegar. When the fizzing stops, rinse with hot water.

9. Unclog Your Shower Head

Soak your shower head overnight (or approx. 12 hours) in undiluted ACV. If it is not possible to remove your shower head, fill a bag with acv and rubber band it around your shower head.

10. All-natural Flea repellent For Your Pets

Mix one part vinegar with one part water and add to a spraying bottle. Saturate the coat of your pet with this mixture once a day, for a few days to a week and all fleas should be gone.

Although some people swear by using up to 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar on a daily basis, I would not recommend to use it that much as it may cause low potassium levels and lowers bone density. Apple cider vinegar may interact with diuretics, laxatives, and medicines for diabetes and heart disease, so if you’re planning to use it on a daily basis make sure to consult your doctor to avoid interactions with the medicines you’re taking.

    • Jenny says:

      Yes you can. Start with a small amount of ACV such as 1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water. If it is too strong for your skin, add more water. If it doesn’t seem strong enough and you aren’t noticing any benefits, add more apple cider vinegar. You can also customize the cleanser by adding other ingredients like witch hazel, green tea, aloe vera gel, etc.

      • Marcy says:

  6. Vitaliy says:

    How can you use acv to get rid of acne?

    • Jenny says:

      ACV toner is very good for skin, and is also very effective in treating skin problems like acne, pimples and other skin-related ailments. It has the ability to restore the balance of the skin pH. Start with a small amount of ACV such as 1 part ACV to 4 parts water. If it is too strong for your skin, add more water. If it doesn’t seem strong enough and you aren’t noticing any benefits, add more apple cider vinegar. You can also customize the cleanser by adding other ingredients like witch hazel, green tea, aloe vera gel, etc. Always use it on a small part of skin, and see how it reacts. Also drinking ACV is beneficial for skin problems as it helps to reduce or eliminate toxins in your body that may cause acne. Mix 1 cup of water and 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar and drink. You can add 1 tsp. of honey to improve the taste or you can add ACV to juice or green tea instead of water.

  7. Brandy says:

    Acv in regards to helping asthma? Husband has it bad and anything to help him.

    Thanks!

  8. Can i use acv to eliminates wrinkles?if yes how?

    • Jenny says:

      ACV toner can help reduce or minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It tightens, brightens and freshens the skin. Start with a small amount of ACV such as 1 part apple cider vinegar to 4 parts water. If it is too strong for your skin, add more water. If it doesn’t seem strong enough and you aren’t noticing any benefits, add more apple cider vinegar. You can also customize the toner by adding other ingredients like witch hazel, green tea, aloe vera gel, etc. Rub it on freshly clean face and use it as an astringent every night (dab it on your face with a cotton ball before you put your moisturizer on). There will be a slight smell, but it will dissipate quickly.”

  9. joy says:

    Was in a car accident months ago and had some head trauma. Doctor still has limits in me. How can I use a acv to loss weight. Really really want to lose 30 pounds and always hungry at night. What are you suggestions. Thanks

    • Jenny says:

      The recommendation is to mix 1 to 2 teaspoons ACV in a glass of water and drink before meals 3 times a day, but see also my reply to Liam who asked me if it really helps to lose weight – it’s not a magic solution.

  10. Angie says:

    How do I use this to help with allergies? Will Acv also help with redness in cheeks and face?

    • Jenny says:

      Some ACV users claim the vinegar dramatically reduces allergy symptoms from pets, food, and other environmental sources.The theory is ACV’s ability to reduce mucous production and cleanse the lymphatic system which makes it useful for allergies. Mix a teaspoon or two of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar into a glass of water and drink this three times a day. Add a teaspoon of honey if you don’t like the taste. As for redness in cheeks and face – results may vary between different people, but I think it’s still worth trying.

  11. liam says:

    where can i buy acv from? does it really help lose weight?

    • Jenny says:

      There are not many studies done on ACV and weight loss in humans. There are claims that ACV accelerates weight loss because it helps control blood sugar levels, suppress appetite and because it can boost metabolism, however more research is needed. Take into consideration that no food can rapidly cause weight loss unless you make changes to your nutrition and lifestyle. You can buy ACV in supermarkets and in most grocery shops.

  12. Helene says:

    Hey I saw it said something about warts. What kind of mixture would I use? And how do I apply it for a 9 year old boy??

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Helene, wikiHow website mentions ACV – http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Warts. It is said there to take a cotton ball (only enough to cover the wart) and soak it in the vinegar. Secure with a band aid overnight (keep in mind that this might be very painful). Change the cotton pad daily and keep it on every night if you can. After one week, the body of the wart will start to peel off and you can gently scrape it away to reveal healthy flesh beneath. Let the area heal once this is done. Now I don’t know how effective it is, but maybe worth a try. You may also want to see this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxxVhuM9Eu0

      • Stephanie says:

        ACV works beautifully to treat warts! Our youngest had a persistent bout of warts on her knees many years ago & nothing but the ACV worked. We saturated the cotton ball, put it in place, covered w/a band-aid. Within a few days it fell off. Fortunately, she has not been bothered since! 🙂

    • shelly says:

      i get a wart on my finger and usually what i just do is dab a little on it at night and cover with a band aid but if it’s a younger kid i would try and do it during the day and see if it’s stinging him cause it may hurt

  13. Susan Bush says:

    Is it true that ACV kills cancer cells. .I’ve been told. .that it makes the body ph balance alkaline so it kills cancer cells..just was wondering. .

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Susan, I had a look at webMD website and this is what they say: “A few laboratory studies have found that vinegar may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth. Observational studies of people have been confusing. One found that eating vinegar was associated with a decreased risk of esophageal cancer. Another associated it with an increased risk of bladder cancer” (http://www.webmd.com/diet/apple-cider-vinegar?page=2).

      • debbie amaral says:

        Please don’t tell people that vinegar cures or stops cancer, It does not. Cancer is a killer and if people read this and take acv instead of going to the doctors, you are helping them die.

        • Jenny says:

          Hi Debbie, have you fully read what I’ve written? Please read it again and see that I don’t tell people that ACV kills cancer. I think I was very clear in what I’ve written.

  14. Carla says:

    Help I am trying to lose weight and not having much success at it so can you tell me would acv help me ? And if so how much do I take per day ? And how is it measured ? And does it also work on cellulite ?

    • Jenny says:

      As for weight loss – the recommendation is to mix 1 to 2 teaspoons ACV in a glass of water and drink before meals 3 times a day, but see also my reply to Liam who asked me if it really helps to lose weight – it’s not a magic solution.
      As for cellulite – I’ve seen references in the web re making a body wrap to improve cellulite: mix ACV and water in equal parts, and then rub it on the area. Afterward, wrap the areas in plastic wrap and a warm towel for 1 hour (some places recommend more than that), then rinse. Some websites recommend taking apple cider vinegar orally to remove toxins with in turns help to improve cellulite. You can also have a look at my article in this subject: “The Best Ways to Reduce Cellulite Naturally” – http://www.healthyandnaturalworld.com/reduce-cellulite-naturally/

  20. Henry Guzman Villalobos says:

  26. Gene says:

    Jenny i am in my late seventies and in good shape I have Diviticulites and a lot of stomach prob. Will apple vinegar help or cure Gene

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Gene, I’m not familiar with this condition and couldn’t find a good information in the web about ACV and Diviticulites so I really don’t know.

      • Rebecca says:

        The correct spelling of that condition is DIVERTICULITIS. Does that help you in finding out more about it? 🙂

        • Jenny says:

          Thanks Rebecca – Google automatically corrects it to the right name, but I couldn’t find a trusted source that talks about the link between ACV and diverticulitis. WikiAnswers website mentions that on the one hand ACV can cause diverticulitis because of the acid content, but on the other hand there are times where it can help it if it balances the PH in the person’s body.

  27. Tanya Beakes says:

    Hi there. My mom has a Hiatus Hernia so she experiences a lot of GI discomfort. Would ACV be good for this?

    • Jenny says:

      ACV considers to help digestion. It is claimed it can help with common indigestion and gastrointestinal discomfort caused by certain foods and it is said to clear up chronic acid reflux when taken with each meal. This is strange because ACV is so acidic, but there are several theories about how ACV works, and one of them is that ACV aids digestion by helping break down fats, but regardless of how exactly it works, many people have reported about the effectiveness of ACV. It is recommended to mix one or two teaspoons of ACV with a glass of water and drink before meals or when heartburn strikes. I guess your mum should give it a try.

      • Barb says:

        I have used ACV for indigestion and acid reflux issues. It has really helped me. I take 1-2 Tbsp before bed or anytime I am having problems. I have just taken it straight which sometimes is hard to swallow. I think I will try it in a cup of water next time.

      • Orpha says:

        The way ACV works on acid reflux and/or heartburn is: The acid pumps in our stomachs produce the acid our bodies need to digest the foods we eat. When our bodies are low on acid, then these pumps kick in and put out more acid. Under normal conditions these pumps turn off when the body senses there is enough acid. What most people do is reach for the antacids! What THAT does is tell the body it needs more acid because the antacids go against the bodys’ natural way of working and healing, so the pumps keep producing more and more acid and the cycle continues because the body keeps trying to get the right amount of acid it needs to function properly. This then causes too much acid being produced all the time. NOW…Using ACV, which IS an acid, actually adds more acid which tells the body there is enough acid and the pumps then shut off. When these pumps are never allowed to shut off and they continually produce acid, then the stomach lining becomes weakened and that is when bacteria starts to break down the protective lining of the stomach and other things now happen like ulcers, acid reflux, etc., etc. Without going into a lot of detail, this is the process and cycle my husband became entangled in and it eventually killed him. Our bodies know what to do. Unfortunately we can’t seem to get out of our own way to let it do just that. The biggest thing we can do to help it is eat good ORGANIC foods and stay away from the GMO stuff (which, by the way, is not food). ACV is a good way to help the body balance and alkalize itself. So, instead of fighting the heartburn with unnatural things like antacids, help it and yourself by using ACV. It does work. Once it gets under control and the body is left to “do its thing”, you will probably have very few bouts of the dis-comfort. To your health and hopes this helped.

    Thanks for this article. My wife and I have been using ACV as an ingredient for mop sauces when we barbecue. Gonna try it for high blood pressure, my diabetes and digestion as well.

  34. walter says:

    Can u take this purely?

    • Jenny says:

      I’ve seen references of people who consume a teaspoon or two of undiluted ACV but it is very acidic and can cause a burning sensation in your mouth and throat. Also there is evidence that vinegar, like lemon juice, can erode the enamel from teeth, so it’s still a good idea to dilute it.

    Will ACV help for DVT?

  41. Brenda says:

    Hi Jenny. I’m just a little confused, in the beginning of the article it states: Apple cider vinegar is made through a fermentation process, which destroys most of the healthy nutrients of the apples.
    If that is true, then how is ACV so healthy for us? Especially if most of the nutrients are destroyed? I used this in the past and would like to try it again.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Brenda, I understand the confusion and I think the words indeed need rephrase. What Amy, the guest blogger who wrote this article, meant to say is that all the processed, filtered, non-organic and pasteurized ACV loses its nutritional value, and this is the kind of ACV found in most stores and the one you should avoid. She emphasized the importance of using the “good” ACV which is organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized and unprocessed. This version maintains what is called the “mother” that contains a lot of nutritional health value, hence the ACV is not clear but cloudy. I will change the wordings as I think it is indeed confusing. So thank you for pointing it out.

      • Brenda says:

        Hi Jenny, thank you for your reply. Thanks for clarifying that for me 🙂 I love these articles. I’ve learned so much.

  44. Therese Morris says:

    Hi Jenny – My friends and I give 1/3 cup of ACV to our horses (1,200 lbs) in their grain everyday. This does wonders to keep the flys from biting. Do you think we are doing more harm than good in the long run to their bones and potassium?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Therese, I don’t have any knowledge about horses and I don’t really know what considers to be a good quantity for horses. I have seen several references in the web about using ACV in horses feed, but the quantities vary, so I think the best idea would be to consult with a vet about the right amount.

  45. Jennifer says:

    Most of my adult life I have suffered with indigestion & heartburn, have taken Prilosec for quite sometime but in the last few years I seem to have more burping and bloating. I’m disabled so I can’t really walk it away. I have just taken the ACV with honey to taste and water. Is it normal to have huge belches,,,,my goodness and does it take a while for the uncomfortable feeling to stop. Thanks so much for your help,,,,Jen

    • Jenny says:

      See if that feeling repeats or perhaps it was just one time. Maybe try a smaller amount of ACV in the water and not every day and see how it goes.

  46. Libby says:

    I have been using ACV for acne on my face and neck; I noticed it has lighten dark spots from sun damage on my face plus my skin fills so soft. I use it twice a day on my face.

  48. Barb says:

    How do I use ACV to regulate ph balance?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Barb, you can read about the effects of ACV on pH levels here – http://healing.answers.com/diet/can-apple-cider-vinegar-balance-your-bodys-ph. Mix 2 tablespoons of raw organic ACV and honey (for taste) in a glass of clean water and drink. Take into consideration that as mentioned in the article, although some people use ACV on a daily basis, it is not recommended to use it that much as it may cause low potassium levels and lowers bone density. ACV may interact with diuretics, laxatives, and medicines for diabetes and heart disease, so if you’re planning to use it on a daily basis make sure to consult your doctor to avoid interactions with the medicines you’re taking.

  49. jean says:

    Hi jenny! just wanna know if the ACV can also lighten my skin if i use it to my body. bcoz i red that it can use as a face toner. how about if use into my body?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Jean, if it’s good for the facial skin which is more delicate, it should be fine for the body as well.

      • princess says:

        Hi jenny, pls I ve scalp follulities which is very painful and has caused enlargement of lymph nodes on two sides of my neck, pls wat herbal remedy should I use

        • Jenny says:

          You might have what is called “folliculitis” which is caused by an infection of the hair follicles by bacteria, viruses or fungi. The most common cause of folliculitis is Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. I’ve read in Mayo Clinic website that mild cases of folliculitis often clear up without any treatment, but if the infection is more serious (like what you have), you need to see your doctor or a dermatologist as you may need antibiotics or antifungal medications to help control the problem.

    • Jenny says:

      Generally speaking Bragg is a good brand, but I don’t know if you can get it in India. You will need to do your own research as it is different in every country. You can get raw ACV in supermarkets or health food stores.

    Can you use any kind of Acv or does it have to be organic Bragg Acv?

    • Jenny says:

      You can use any brand which is raw organic and unprocessed (Bragg is just one of them). This type of ACV contains all the enzymes and nutrients that your body needs and gives you the most health benefits, unlike the refined stuff which is sold in most supermarkets.

    I’M 44 YRS OLD BUT EVERSINCE I’M HAVING A PROBLEMS WITH ACNE.FILLED WITH BLOOD .THEY CALLED IT CYSTIC ACNE.I TRIED TO USED ACV WITH 1TBS. WITH ONE GLASS OD WATER.ITS THAT VORRECT AND TRIED TO DRINK TOO AT NIGHT.THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Marjorie, I have several articles about treating acne, however I don’t think they are suitable for cystic acne which is a more serious and severe type of acne. Cystic acne can affect large area of the skin, last for a long time and leave permanent scars. In this case I would seek advice from a dermatologist. You can try and drink diluted ACV for internal cleansing. I don’t know if it helps in your case, but you can give it a try (it also has many other health benefits). Mix 1-2 tablespoons of raw, organic unfiltered and unprocessed ACV in a glass of water. Don’t use the refined ACV that is sold in many stores as it doesn’t contain the enzymes and nutrients your body needs.

    you forgot about using acv to combat cellulitis – works wonders. soak a cloth diaper in acv, wrap around affected area, secure with cling wrap. change the poultice every few hours, for a few days. also, rest as much as possible. avoid use of antibiotics and recurrent infections.

    Can acv cure varicose veins??

    • Jenny Hills says:

      A recent study published on 2016 (see the study HERE) suggested that the external application of apple vinegar on varicosity patients increased the positive effects of conservative treatment. The patients in the study group were suggested to apply ACV to the area of the leg with varicosity alongside the treatment suggested by the doctor. The patients in the control group received no intervention during the study. After 3 months, the external application of ACV was found to increase the effect of conservative treatment and decrease symptoms without causing any side effects. Please pay attention that the ACV treatment in the study was in conjunction with conventional treatment and not as a stand alone treatment.
