Tea: Apple Cider Vinegar

Posted by on July 20, 2010 at 7:17 am.

Although I’ve used apple cider vinegar for numerous years, it wasn’t until about seven years ago until I decided to do more reasearch on it’s numerous benefits. I first learned about apple cider vinegar when I was a child. My grandmother that used it religiously, she told me some of its benefits and encouraged me to try it out too.

Apple Cider Vinegar contains Vitamins C, E, and A. It also contains the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, and many other trace elements and nutrients. There have been numerous claims made about apple cider vinegar. I’ve listed a few below.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Improves skin tone
  • Improves circulation
  • Detoxifies and purifies the body
  • Fat burner
  • Natural household cleaner
  • Soothes mosquito bites

Sipping it straight from a cup is something most people won’t do, since it still has that strong vinegar tast. However you can mask the taste of Apple Cider Vinegar by including it in your teas and juices. I’ve included a simple recipe below for those who might be lookiing for natural ways to eliminate constipation.

Apple Cider Vinegar Tea

  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon black strap molasses or honey

Sip and enjoy!

    Heya Ali – YumVeggieBurger, thanks so much for stopping by! :)

    There are numerous benefits to Apple Cider Vinegar; I only listed a few of them. If the tea is still too sour, just add more sweetener. I used to drink it daily, I need to get back into that habit.

    Interestingly enough, some studies claim that consuming it regularly tends to prevent mosquitos from biting. Is that effective with everyone? I have no clue. I know, when I eased up on drinking it, if I hadn’t used one of my natural insect sprays; I would get bit. When the weather is nice, my daughter and I tend to play outdoor games in the evening times, so I try to make sure we are using a natural insect repellent.
