3. Use Apple Cider Vinegar To Help You Lose Weight
There have been studies done on the effects that apple cider vinegar can have on your waistline, and the results are promising.(3)
Drinking a glass of water with 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, 15 to 30 minutes before a meal can reduce hunger cravings, which lower your chances of overeating. It also helps digest protein and fats. And good digestion is always helpful.
Never Use Apple Cider Vinegar To Lighten Your Teeth!
This is a claim we found on numerous sites – that apple cider vinegar can lighten stained teeth and nails. While there were no scientific studies on this case, there was an article from a Dutch medical journal about how excessive apple cider vinegar consumption (a whole glass a day!) caused erosion of tooth enamel(4). So, don’t try this!
Other Medicinal Uses For Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has many scientifically proven health benefits, but they’re not all glamorous and don’t always have to do with shiny hair and teeth.
For example, apple cider vinegar can have an antidiabetic effect, and be used to manage cholesterol levels(5). It can also promote healthy gut bacteria, which is key to preventing a whole host of other diseases, including leaky gut syndrome(6).
While these health effects may not have an immediate impact on your outward appearance, they do have a long-term impact on your overall well being.
