The Ultimate Guide to Drink Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a common cooking ingredient that some people say has helped them lose weight, boost their immune system, and regulate their blood sugar. Include a little apple cider vinegar in your diet every day to cleanse and detoxify your body from the inside. Whether you drink it or incorporate it into your food, start your detox program today!

Drink untreated apple cider vinegar

Get pure, unfiltered apple cider vinegar.

Check out your grocery store for an apple cider vinegar with a solid substance that settles to the bottom of the bottle. This is the so-called “mother of vinegar” that contains good enzymes and probiotic cultures. You shouldn’t buy pasteurized vinegar that doesn’t have the same good qualities as unfiltered vinegar. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the supermarket, order your apple cider vinegar online.

Dilute the vinegar with about 250 ml of water.

Apple cider vinegar is extremely acidic and could damage your teeth and mucous membranes if you drink it straight. Shake the bottle well and measure 1-2 tablespoons to stir into a glass of water. You can drink your vinegar in hot or cold water. Try mixing the apple cider vinegar with other liquids, such as fruit juice, tea, or apple cider, to change the flavor.

Drink the mixture about 20 minutes before meals to curb your appetite and control your blood sugar.

Before a meal, apple cider vinegar can stimulate your digestive tract and regulate your blood sugar while eating. Just make sure to dilute it so it’s not so acidic. Before starting an apple cider vinegar cycle, talk to a doctor if you’re on insulin or diuretic medications. Apple cider vinegar may weaken its effects.

Tip: Drink your apple cider vinegar mixture through a straw if you have sensitive teeth or weak enamel. The acid in vinegar could damage tooth enamel over time.

Follow your vinegar cleanse for about two to four weeks.

To reap the lasting benefits of apple cider vinegar, consume it twice daily. Distribute this intake evenly throughout the day and always drink the solution on an empty stomach. You can do this for up to four weeks; then you should reduce the intake to one or two tablespoons only in the morning. You can use apple cider vinegar consistently or do a vinegar cleanse three to four times a year.

Mask the taste of apple cider vinegar

Mix in 1-2 teaspoons of sugar or sweetener to help neutralize the acidity of the vinegar.

Stir your favorite sweetener into the apple cider vinegar drink to make it taste better. Make sure the sugar dissolves completely. Replace the sugar with about 20 grams of honey if you want it to be naturally sweet.

Add cinnamon and cayenne pepper for added nutritional value.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or cayenne pepper into your drink to add more antioxidants. Cinnamon and pepper add flavor to your drink and help your body burn more calories. Stir in the spices until well distributed. Add a cinnamon stick to the glass to further enhance the flavor.

The drink will be more acidic if you mix in two tablespoons of lemon juice.

You can either squeeze fresh lemons or use ready-made lemon juice. Adjust the amount to suit your personal taste. Warming up your drink and adding a tablespoon of honey will even help with a sore throat.

Mix apple cider vinegar into your salad dressing.

In a bowl, combine 3 tablespoons olive oil, 75 ml apple cider vinegar, 1 clove of minced garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir the dressing until well combined. Then you pour about a third of it over your salad and put the rest in the fridge. You can also just mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into your favorite ready-made dressing.

Marinate meat and vegetables in apple cider vinegar.

Mix 2 parts oil with 1 part apple cider vinegar and place the mixture in a sealable plastic bag. Add spices like cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic powder. When the marinade is well mixed, add your meat or vegetables and let them soak up the flavor for 3 or 4 hours before cooking. Experiment with different flavors. If you like your marinade a little saltier, you can add a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce.

Add apple cider vinegar to soups and stews.

Soups and thick stews taste very intense and are good at hiding the acidity of the vinegar. Add a tablespoon to your soup bowl and stir well. After you have spooned out the soup ingredients, drink the broth so that you can also drink the apple cider vinegar. You can mix apple cider vinegar into ready-made and homemade soups.

Final Words

There is no scientific evidence of whether apple cider vinegar benefits your health. Apple cider vinegar may interfere with insulin, or diuretics work if you have diabetes. Talk to a doctor before beginning your detox program. Because it is very acidic, apple cider vinegar can damage tooth enamel. Always dilute it well before drinking.
