Let’s face it, there’s always a new product or gadget that’s hot out of the oven ready to be devoured by the general public. Most are lame, useless and silly in my opinion and nothing gets under my skin more than false marketing tactics to entice us to buy their fake products which overpromise and underdeliver every time.
Nonetheless, we still buy, often with no reservation, especially when we see bright lights claiming “weight loss here!”
Who remembers THE SHAKE WEIGHT? Geez. We might as well give a handjob to someone in public and call it a day, it’s literally the same thing.
I actually wrote an article a few years back on all the random gadgets that are downright absurd and ridiculous. If you’re bored and are in need of some entertainment, feel free to check out the “hot pants to help warm your groin” HERE. I’m not lying.
Shake “HJ” weights and groin warmers set aside, what about some of the potential legit stuff?
Enter APPLE CIDER VINEGAR.
Do I think it has potential healing properties? Yes.
Do I think it tastes like ass? You bet. (Never tasted ass, but you get me, it’s not enjoyable to the palate, let’s just put it that way.)
I’m going to keep it simple and straightforward and give you a quick rundown of some highlights of the magic potion in a bottle.
Let’s first start, ‘WHAT ON EARTH IS THE MOTHER?”
Well, she’s not a pregnant woman in a bottle, I’ll tell you that much, so if you’re looking for that I suggest you go elsewhere.
The mother, believe or not, means that the ACV still contains the beneficial compounds including tons of probiotics! All those little strands you see? Yep, that means the enzymes and bacteria haven’t been removed and those cloudy strands is what’s referred to as the “mother” probiotics. BOOM! Interesting, right? It’s super important to remember, however, you pick a bottle that’s organic, unpasteurized and unfiltered. There are lots of crappy ones out there and when you go with the high-quality stuff, you know you’re reaping all the wonderful health and beauty benefits which I will be mentioning below.

Alright, so there’s supposed to be hundreds of benefits of ACV, but for time’s sake, I’m going to list 7. Why 7? I don’t know, today just feels like a 7 kind of day.
1. Let’s work on that pH balance.
Let’s be honest, ACV tastes awful and it’s super acidic, but it contains the good stuff called acetic acid, which is acidic in nature, but has a more alkaline effect on the rest of your body. Plus, it gives us a ton of energy.
2. Yeast? Only in my bread, please.
Itchy down there? Acne? Breakouts? Bloated? You might have some candida and yeast overgrowth. Other side effects can be low energy, bad breath, and digestive issues. ACV contains probiotics and a type of acid that promotes the growth of probiotics which help kill off candida. It’s important to remove sugar from your diet and consume 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar three times a day to help.
3. Weight loss and metabolism booster
A study published in the Journal of Diabetes Care found that consuming apple cider vinegar could promote weight loss. It’s said, ACV promotes fat loss because it helps reduce sugar cravings and improves our detoxification.
4. Let’s detoxify!
Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is known to be a liver and lymphatic tonic which can help detox our body. It also helps balance our body’s pH and increases cardiovascular awakening, bowel movements, and lymphatic drains.
5. Want some pearly whites?
Did you know that ACV is a natural teeth whitener? Let’s save on those $500 kiosk shops at the mall, shall we? All we need to do is take our finger and rub the ACV on our teeth for 1 minute, then rinse. The pH of apple cider vinegar can remove stains from your teeth, which helps naturally whiten.
6. Warts BE gone!
Putting apple cider vinegar topically on a wart overnight (make sure to put a bandage over that guy) and removing in the AM, we might start to see a little improvement. Be patient though, it’s different speeds for different breeds.
7. Say no to Seasonal Allergies
ACV helps break up mucous in our body and helps our immune system along with clearing our sinues. Triple bonus! Aim for 2 tablespoons in a large glass of water and down that sucker 3 times a day.
In a nutshell, do I encourage daily doses of ACV? I do, I really think it helps with cravings, energy levels, and skin.
Some people drink it in their water (1 TBSP) while others, including myself, have to hold their nose, chug a swig and call it a day.
Let me know if you have any other suggestions on how to drink it, I’m still trying to find alternative solutions to ingesting that stuff. 🙂
