    most of the time I took it after meal because it help food to digest really fast. But can’t use it as a supplement for meal because it can make you go more hungry and doing that can make you loss shape and more weight that is required . No doubt about all it health benefits and I encourage everyone to try it out

      Hello! Thanks for visiting my website and leaving a comment! Interesting thought. I never noticed apple cider vinegar was making me more hungry but it kind of makes sense because it helps with digestion. But in my case, I did lose weight not from eating less but from balanced micronutrients from a keto diet and of course I’ll give a credit to apple cider vinegar.

    Who knew there were so many ways to use apple cider vinegar? I’m particularly interested in using it for whitening my teeth and helping lose weight. If it works then it’s much healthier than using teeth whitening chemicals, weight loss drugs, and other man made things. Although I have to say I’m a bit skeptical of these natural remedies, a lot of them don’t seem to live up to the hype. It sounds interesting to hear that these plain ol’ everyday ingredients can do so many things, but at the same time I tend to believe it’s a lot of placebo.

    • Stephanie Kern

      Hi, Son. Thank you for reading my article and leaving a comment. When you first try using apple cider vinegar to whiten your teeth, you might feel weird from high acidity in it. But, eventually you will get used it (trust me!). However, as you mentioned, it is a natural remedy so don’t expect an immediate result and always be consistent!

    Good Morning Stephanie,

    Your 15 tips on how to use Apple Cider Vinegar in your life are really good. I also use it every day and therefore always have a bottle in the house. 

    One should take care to only buy the one which has Mother as it contains good bacteria and enzymes. The filtered variety does not have these health benefits.

    Regards, Taetske

      Hello, Taetske,

      Thanks a lot for leaving a comment! I’m glad you are a fan of apple cider vinegar and I agree that the one with The Mother is the must!

    I have been hearing about the weight loss abilities of Apple cider vinegar but I never heard of its antihistamine property or it’s anti-allergen properties and these are two things that I have been struggling with. I’m quite elated to have come across your article. I have had to pop several antihistamine medications since 2015 because of my allergies and my body keeps getting used to each brand to the point where it doesn’t work for me anymore. Do you think I might experience the same with the Apple cider vinegar? I don’t mind loading up on it if it is provide a much needed non-chemical relief to these allergic reactions.

    • Stephanie Kern

      Hi, Vapz. Thank you for your comments! I’m sorry to hear that your allergies are not getting better. Apple cider vinegar does not contain antihistamine property but it provides antihistamine like effect and helps clearing your sinus. Since apple cider vinegar is a natural remedy, it might not as strong as prescribed mediation but I hope you will give it a try!

  • Amanda

    I knew apple cider vinegar had a lot of benefits but there are a lot that you’ve listed I was unaware of like helping whiten your teeth and preventing bad breath.  Had I never tried apple cider vinegar for heart burn relief I would of never believed it worked, but it does.

    I’m definitely  going to have to try the mixture for my scalp and for clearing my sinuses.  Many many reasons to stock up on apple cider vinegar.  Mother Braggs is my choice as well and recommended by many Doctors.
