• ACV helps your body detox and stimulate cardiovascular circulation. Because of its alkalizing effects, it breaks up mucous in the body, helps detoxify the liver, and creates an overall detoxification of the body.
• Sip on it for an energy boost! One of my favorite ways to consume ACV is to add 2 tablespoons to 10 ounces of boiling water. Add a teaspoon of honey or agave nectar and sip on it like tea. You’ll receive all the health benefits as well as a boost of energy!
• To boost your hair’s body and shine, mix 1/2 tablespoon with a cup of cold water and use it as a rinse after shampooing – it can be used several times a week for dramatic results. It also can help get rid of a flaky scalp.
