You’ve all used vinegar for cooking or had it in your dressing, but have you drank it in juice or used it to cure burns and itchy insects bites?
Of all the types of vinegar, distilled and apple cider vinegar are the most commonly used. But they don’t share the same benefits!
Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar:
- Burns fat
- Moderates insulin and sugar levels
- Boosts metabolism
- Destroys harmful bacteria in the digestive system
- Helps relieve chronic pain from migraines and arthritis due to the high amounts of malic acid, which helps relieve pain.
Benefits of distilled vinegar:
- Decreases congestion when poured into a pot of boiling water and inhaled using deep breaths.
- Relieves sore throat—Mix 2 tablespoons of honey and a teaspoon of vinegar into a cup of water. Gargle and drink.
- Prevents bacteria from entering when applied to minor cuts, rashes, burns and insect stings and bites.
- Reduces dandruff—Wash your hair with a cup of vinegar mixed into 2 cups of warm water.
- Kills germs—Vinegar not only kills germs in your body but in your house too. Wipe kitchen and bathroom surfaces, toys and doorknobs with vinegar!
Having vinegar as an ingredient in juices rather than high fructose corn syrup with lead you to a healthier way of living.
Vinegar Fruit Juice:
Serving size: 1 cup
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon lime juice (or drops of lime or lemon)
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of juice (dark fruit juice such as cranberry, pomegranate, and cherries work best, but you can also try apple cider)
1. Pour vinegar, honey and lime juice into cup and mix thoroughly.
2. Pour water and juice into cup and mix throughly. I used cranberry juice, and it was a delicious choice!
I also tried apple-vinegar juice for a lighter taste.
I dare you to experiment with different fruit juices and see which ones you like! Let me know which ones are your favorites!
