Here is a review of just some of the benefits of ACV and why you should begin stocking up bottles of it in your pantry.

How Does A.C.V. Relieve Arthritis Pain?


  • 1. Eases indigestion
  • They say an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. For indigestion, a tablespoon of ACV diluted into warm tea could be a great help before you have a heavy meal.

  • 2. Clears sinuses
  • If you regularly suffer from runny nose and tearing eyes, this might be the only solution. Drink a warm glass of water with a tablespoon of diluted ACV for a quick relief. The properties in ACV are known to break up mucus and clear your nose.

  • 3. Treats upset stomach
  • No matter what the cause of your stomach ache is, ACV is the way to go. All you have to do is mix 2 teaspoons of this wonder vinegar to a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger and a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon into a paste. Mix the paste with sparkling water and you’re on your way to better health. Can’t stand the taste? Add a little honey.

  • 4. Detoxifies liver
  • As with indigestion, ACV’s liver benefits as an act of prevention. To clean your liver and somehow lessen your risk of any related disease, mix 1-2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of hot water. Do this first thing in the morning for best results.

  • 5. Replenishes energy
  • They say an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. For indigestion, a tablespoon of ACV diluted into warm tea could be a great help before you have a heavy meal.

  • 6. Relieves itch
  • Relieve stubborn itches with ACV. Dip a q-top in ACV and apply it directly to the affected area. It might be a little painful, but it promises quick results. Yes, even quicker than your polysporin.

  • 7. Heals fungal infection
  • Like itch, fungal infection can be such a pain. Get relief from ACV. Use a cotton pad to apply ACV to the affected area. You can also try to soak it in a solution of 1 part ACV and 5 parts water. For best results, do it every day for 30 minutes.

  • 8. Treats heartburn
  • Some cases of heartburn are caused by the body producing too little stomach acid. To combat this, you can take a tablespoon of ACV with a little honey when you feel it coming. It will relieve the pain before it becomes too painful.

  • 9. Boosts energy
  • Monday blues? Whatever the day is, a little ACV on your morning tea or water can do wonders to your energy and your mood as well.

  • 10. Heals yeast infection
  • Yeast infection is believed to occur when women take antibiotics, like a side effect. To cure this, mix 1 ½ cups of ACV to your warm bath, and soak into it for 20 minutes.


Many people who have started putting ACV in their daily routine have also seen the side effect of decreasing inflammation, reducing yeast, and cleaning the liver, to be weight loss.
