We are all aware about the numerous health benefits of apple cider vinegar, but there are some uses which can be surprising. The video below will show you 20 different and unusual uses for the ingredient which will surprise you.
Foot and toenail fungus is a painful condition that can cause rashes and burns on the feet and in the area between the toes. It can occur under the nail beds and result in constant pain. Thankfully, soaking your feet in ACV for 10-30 minutes daily can relieve the condition and reduce the pain significantly.
An upset stomach can be soothed by drinking a small amount of ACV mixed with apple or other fruit juice. This drink is especially effective if the cause of the pain is a bacterial infection as apple cider vinegar destroys bacteria easily. To make your hair shiny, add half a teaspoon of ACV in a cup of cold water and wash your hair with the solution, then repeat the process 2-3 times a week.
Due to the powerful anti-inflammatory properties, apple cider vinegar can also treat sunburns. Add a cup of it to a cool bath and soak yourself to relieve the pain and improve the condition of your skin. A teaspoon of ACV can also stop hiccups effectively, while a mixture of equal parts ACV and water is a great solution to disinfect your home.
ACV can also help you lose weight as the acids it contains naturally suppress appetite. Heartburn can be relieved by drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of ACV, and 2 teaspoons of ACV and a teaspoon of honey mixed into a glass of warm water can help you get rid of leg cramps.
