5 Easy Apple Cider Vinegar Dressings

Apple cider vinegar can do it all. It is a pH balancer, a stomach healer, a weight loss booster, a natural cleaner, and an absolute must-have kitchen item. Bragg makes one of the best and most popular varieties of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It is always good to have in the house as an herbal remedy or a flavor agent.

 

Here are some of the uses for apple cider vinegar. You can add 1 cup of it to a warm bath with Epsom salts and a few drops of lavender essential oil to help detox impurities from your skin. You can make an all-natural pre-workout drink with apple cider vinegar because it helps to give you a natural energy boost. It can even be used as a natural teeth whitener by gargling with a little bit every morning.
