IMG_5707

I may be over exaggerating when I say that Apple Cider Vinegar is the most amazing thing ever, but I’m really not.

I mean, I am writing a whole post about it!

Seriously though, it’s literally everything in my home. It’s the main ingredient in my Pink Detox Drink, it’s Bentley’s ear medicine, my energy booster, and favorite cleaning supply, hair mask. You guy’s get the picture.

But what exactly is it??

It’s vinegar made through a long & slow fermentation process that leaves it rich in bioactive components like that give it potent antioxidant, antimicrobial, and many other beneficial properties.

And the “mother”??

The “Mother” is a cobweb-like amino acid-based substance found in unprocessed, unfiltered vinegar, indicates your vinegar is of the best quality. Aka – getting all of the good stuff.

In French, the word “vinegar” actually means “sour wine” which is exactly what it tastes like!

But why should you incorporate it into your daily life???

It contains amino acids, antioxidants, it can help kill bacteria in your body,and  it’s proven to lower your blood sugar (great for people with Type 2 Diabetes). It’s also great for your skin, hair, helps to level out your body’s PH levels (Hello hangover cure) as well as creating an overall detoxification of the body.

Here are the ways I use it on the reg

  1. Energy. Whenever I need a boost of energy, I will dilute it with water and take a shot of it.
  2. Cleaning Bentley’s ears. I use this method when he has an ear infection.
  3. To give my hair some shine. In an old shampoo bottle, put apple cider vinegar in it & dilute it with water. Pour in your hair after shampoo and let it sit for a while before conditioning.
  4. To cure my hangover. Apple cider vinegar detoxify’s your liver as well as alkalizing your bodies system. So this is always my go to along with like a gallon of water -ha.
  5. When I am sick or my allergies are acting up, ACV is my life savior. It’s proven to help break up mucous throughout the body and is also great for sore throats! 
  6. To Promote a healthy gut. It’s great for people with tummy issues.
  7. For everyday health! I do this with my skinny detox drinkThat way, I get all of it’s daily benefits everyday!
