If you ever wonder what else can you use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for, aside from salad dressing and pickles, here are some other health benefits that come from this fermented, concentrated apple juice.
For me, ACV has been my number one go-to when I burn my hands or fingers with hot pans or the hot oven door in the kitchen. It can be used in a situation like this to prevent blistering. I have used it many times and it really worked!
I've also read about ACV and insomnia. One recipe I've found has you mix 2 teaspoons of ACV with warm lemon water and honey before you go to sleep at night, allowing you to sleep, well, like a really good baby. I personally have not tried this yet, so I guess I have my 3 year old son to thank for keeping me busy during the day, leaving no possibility of insomnia at night. So if you decided to try it for this reason, please tell us if it worked for you.
Other health benefits of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar in daily basis:
-prevents flu and stomach illness
-dissolve kidney stones
-helps reduce/prevent acne

So the next time you open your kitchen cabinet and find Apple Cider Vinegar there, mix it with your favorite drink, and enjoy the health benefits from it!
