This liquid isn’t just any kind of liquid. Water is life but if you buy a bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar, you will never regret you did. It is fabulous liquid. It can do everything, from ensuring that your cholesterol is on the right level to polishing your floor. Here some reasons you should grab a bottle now!

1.Works magic with your hair

Ladies, your hair is your crowning glory…yes it is and apple cider vinegar works magic with it. At apple cider vinegar’s Mida’s touch, your hair turns gold. Most women Myjoyonline.com spoke to swore (yeah literally) that it works wonders for their hair, leaving it silky and shinny. Mix a tablespoon full of vinegar with same amount of water and apply in your hair…leave to soak for between 10 and 20 minutes before rinsing.

2. Aids digestion

A tablespoon full of apple cider vinegar taken with water before each meal improves digestion and is known to be very beneficial to people with stomach issues like bloating and indigestion. It is also a better option for salad dressings.

3. Fights diabetes

Numerous studies have established that apple cider vinegar or vinegar in a whole may help to lower glucose levels, making it a beneficial treatment for people with type 2 diabetes. A 2007 study from Arizona State University in the US found that taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar along with 30g of cheese before bed led to a 4-6 percent decrease in fasting blood sugar levels.

4. Reduces unnecessary appetite and cravings

A 2005 Swedish study found that people felt fuller and more satisfied for longer after eating bread with white vinegar, as opposed to eating bread on its own. The magic ingredient in all vinegars that can suppress appetite is believed to be acetic acid, which helps to reduce the glycemic index of foods, slowing the rate at which sugars are released into the bloodstream and lessening appetite.

5. Lowers cholesterol levels

A 2012 study published in Life Science Journal revealed that consumption of apple cider vinegar over an eight-week period can significantly reduce harmful blood lipids that contribute to high cholesterol and triglyceride levels in people who suffer from hyperlipidemia (too many fats in the blood). 

6. Polishes wood

Another known use for this marvelous liquid is polishing wood. A concoction of half a cup of any vegetable oil with half a cup of apple cider vinegar is said to create a furniture polish that will clean and treat wooden furniture and surfaces, and remove water stains.

7. Works as an all-purpose cleaner

Ditch the chemical, commercial sprays for something you don’t mind spraying around your loved ones. This concoction is said to gently clean and disinfect household surfaces: one part vinegar to two parts water, plus a few drops of tea tree oil for its antibacterial qualities.

And oh don’t worry, there’s apple cider vinegar in every well-stocked shop in Ghana. I’m sure even if you go to Makola, you’ll get more than you can ever need. Get in touch…faustine.akwa@myjoyonline.com.
