Apple Cider Vinegar is a strong anti bacterial natural health remedy. It is rich in many important minerals and elements like potassium, magnesium, chlorine, sulphur, iron, fluorine, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, copper, silicon.

Apple cider vinegar is made by crushing organically grown apples and squeezing out the juice. Sugar and yeast are added to the juice to begin the fermentation procedure, which converts sugars into alcohol. In the next fermentation procedure, the alcohol is turned by acetic acid-forming bacteria into vinegar. Thus, we get our apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is actually an old folk cure known to be helpful in curing a long list of health conditions. Some herbal practitioners claim that apple cider vinegar can treat arthritis, safeguard against osteoporosis, stabilise blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, cure infection, help with the digestion process, help in weight management, curb the ageing of the mind, and help in maintaining good memory.

No matter what the reason may be the bottom line is that it may assist you with healthy weight loss. Mix 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and sip it throughout the day.

2. Cure for Bad Breath:
Apple cider vinegar is acidic in nature, which makes it a very good remedy to get rid of bad breath (halitosis). Add 1/2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and gargle twice a day.

3. Cure for Body Odour:
Apple cider vinegar is helpful in regulating the PH level of the skin, which is helpful in getting rid of the bacteria responsible for body odour. To make sure your underarms are free from odour just wipe it with a cotton ball dipped in undiluted apple cider vinegar after taking your bath. To treat foot odour, add lukewarm water in a foot bath and add 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar, soak your feet in it for ten to fifteen minutes once every week.

4. To Treat Acne:
Apple cider vinegar is one of the best natural cures for acne. Apple cider vinegar kills the bacteria and helps in balancing the PH level of the skin thereby reducing acne or removing it altogether. This is also helpful in absorbing the excess oil from the skin, which is known to be the main cause of acne.

Mix water and apple cider vinegar in the ratio of 1:3 (one part apple cider vinegar and three parts water). Dip a cotton ball in this mix and apply it directly on the skin. Let it stay and absorb for ten minutes. After ten minutes rinse your face with water. Repeat this process two times or thrice in a day. To treat severe acne, increase the ratio of apple cider vinegar in the mix to 2:3. You can also apply this mix on your face at night and sleep without washing your face.
