Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar, or ACV as it’s fondly known as, is a wonder food with numerous benefits. It is derived from apples, sugar and yeast. Apples are crushed, the juice squeezed out and fermented using bacteria and yeast.

For Skin

ACV has been hailed by many as the reason for their glowing skin. When applied on the skin it acts as a toner. The skin is firmed up leaving you looking youthful. To use it, dilute ACV in water in a 1:2 ratio. Cleanse your face then dab on the ACV using a cotton pad. Follow through with a moisturiser.

For Hair

Our scalp is naturally acidic, with a pH of 4.5- 5. Shampoos are usually alkaline. To restore your scalp to the natural pH, use apple cider vinegar as a final rinse. Dilute it in water in a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water then rinse your hair. For added benefits leave the ACV water in your hair.

For The Gut

One of the most popular uses of ACV is soothing the tummy. It kills bacteria that cause upset stomach. It also alleviates intestinal spasms. 2 tbsp of ACV in 500ml of water should do the trick. For days when you happen/ plan to over-indulge, combine 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water. For optimum results drink this 30 minutes before meals.

Candida Treatment

ACV contains natural enzymes that help the body fight off yeast responsible for candida infections (thrush).


If you’ve been out in the sun too long, ACV comes to the rescue. Add 1 cup to your bath, and soak for 10 minutes. Your skin should feel soothed afterwards.Common Diet Myths

Consuming apple cider vinegar can aid in weight loss. Dilute 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 500ml of water and sip this drink as you go about the day. However, the weight loss from this isn’t drastic. You still need to do your exercise and watch your diet.
