If you are anything like me, you like to look for a natural alternative for your health ailments instead of running immediately out to the drug store. So naturally, after much research (and before you jump in the car and race to your nearest pharacist) I think it is important for you to know exactly what apple cider vinegar can do for you…your health, your hair and your home.
How To Consume Apple Cider Vinegar
First of all, make sure not to consume too much as too much of anything is not a good thing and could do more harm than good. That being said, most pleople prefer to dilute 1-2 teaspoons to 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in water per day. No more then 2 tablespoons (30 ml) per day. And as always, it would be smart to check with your doctor to make sure apple cider vinegar is safe for you.
