One of my favorite things to have on hand is apple cider vinegar. I love that it is so useful and multipurpose. Today I want to share with you 4 uses for apple cider vinegar, and why you should always have a bottle in your cupboard! 今天分享苹果醋的4个用途。
Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the juice from crushed apples. It is rich in minerals and friendly bacteria (also known as the “mother”), so long as you choose a raw, unpasteurized brand. I like Bragg’s. 苹果醋，顾名思义就是由榨取的苹果汁发酵而成，富含矿物质和有益菌。选购时，记得选购未经巴氏高温除菌消毒过的。
Apple cider vinegar is great to stimulate gastric juices. In fact, the acidic nature of apple cider vinegar mimics stomach acid and in turn aids digestion. That’s why many people find relief from taking apple cider vinegar for heartburn — often the issue is not too much stomach acid, but too little.
Just like lemon and water, a spoonful of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water is excellent as an alkalizing tonic. Despite its acidity, apple cider vinegar actually becomes alkaline internally after it has been metabolized.
1tsp in a little water before a meal is all you need to stimulate digestion.
1.Salad Dressings 沙拉酱
Apple cider vinegar is a delicious addition to all kinds of salads, dressings and marinades. One of my favourite salad dressing combinations is olive oil, apple cider vinegar, tahini and basil. 我平时搭配的最多的是苹果醋、橄榄油、芝麻酱和罗勒叶。
2.For Healthy, Silky Hair 护发
Apple cider vinegar can be used as hair conditioner and it works marvelously. It leaves your hair feeling soft and clean, and is great for detangling. Apple cider vinegar is also useful for dandruff. 苹果醋有护发效果，让头发柔顺，还能去屑。
I add equal parts apple cider vinegar to water in a glass jar, pour it on wet hair in the shower, and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. Best part is it’s inexpensive, too.
If you’re looking for super soft skin, try adding 1 cup of apple cider vinegar in your bath. Fun fact: the inside of our body loves a more alkaline environment, but the outside of our body – like our hair and skin – prefers more acidity. The pH of apple cider vinegar helps to balance us both internally and externally. Apple cider vinegar can also be used topically for a variety of skin ailments including insect bites, warts, and sunburn. Apply directly to skin, or dilute in a little water.
There are dozens of uses for apple cider vinegar. It is an inexpensive, highly versatile addition to anyone’s lifestyle. What have you used it for? Leave me a comment below!
