The many health benefits of apple cider vinegar

2. Get rid of those pesky ailments

ACV can do wonders for your health — in both small and major ways. Reader’s Digest recommends mixing equal parts vinegar (get here) and water and gargling the mixture for a few seconds in order to get rid of a sore throat. A teaspoon of the product in a glass of water can also clear up your sinuses thanks to its potassium and acetic acid, so you can be free of that cold that just won’t go away. That method will also boost your energy, thanks to those same ingredients.

Surprisingly, apple cider vinegar can also get rid of hiccups: Teenage inventor Mallory Kievman rose to fame with Hiccupops, her patented lollipops made from apple cider vinegar and sugar. The taste of ACV essentially overwhelms the throat’s nerves into forgetting about hiccups.

3. Manage hunger

Dr. Mercola refers to ACV as being capable of “increasing satiety” — essentially, making you less hungry. According to Mercola’s blog, studies found people who had vinegar with their meal tended to eat less for the rest of the day. Reader’s Digest adds that ACV might help prevent calories from entering your bloodstream.

4. Improve your oral health

Gargling diluted ACV can help kill bacteria and give you better breath, Reader’s Digest reports. In addition, that process will aid with whitening your teeth and getting rid of stains — though it shouldn’t serve as a replacement for brushing your teeth.
