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。

Digestion 助消化
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.

苹果醋可以有效刺激胃液分泌。由于苹果醋营造的酸性环境与胃液相似,可以有助食物的消化。许多人在感到胃部不适,特别是产生胃灼热症状时,经常会用苹果醋来暂时缓解——通常,这一症状发生的原因并非胃酸过多,恰恰是因为胃酸分泌不足导致。

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.

如同早上起床喝一杯柠檬水,在水里加一勺苹果醋有同样效果。虽然柠檬汁和苹果醋都酸性的,但它们一经消化,则会转变为碱性,从而综合胃酸。

1tsp in a little water before a meal is all you need to stimulate digestion.

餐前一小杯苹果醋对促进消化很有帮助。

1.Salad Dressings 沙拉

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.

我用等量的苹果醋和清水混合装在玻璃瓶中,淋在洗完的头发上,另它在发丝间停留一会后再冲洗掉。

3.Skin 护肤

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.

泡澡时,在水中加入1杯苹果醋,能让皮肤更光滑。有意思的是:我们的身体的内环境偏爱碱性,而身体的外部如皮肤、头发则偏爱弱酸性环境。苹果醋对解决局部皮肤问题都有帮助,例如,昆虫叮咬,疣和晒伤。可直接或加入少许水稀释后使用。

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!
