Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has many all-natural uses, going from a salad dressing to personal care and household cleaning. Lately there has been a lot of fuss around the healing powers of apple cider vinegar and enthusiasts suggest to take a tablespoon or two a day to cure everything including gout, diabetes, allergies, and cancer.

Although a lot of those claims are overstated or unfounded, there are many uses that are proven and have been used for ages.

Always opt for organic, unfiltered, and unprocessed apple cider vinegar and not the clear stuff you find in most stores. If you try to look through the vinegar you should see a cobweb-like substance, which is the good stuff, floating in it. Apple cider vinegar is made through a fermentation process, which destroys most of the healthy nutrients of the apples. So filtering it out will even remove more nutrients. Actually, this can be said for all foods, the more theyre processed, the less nutritious.
