All You Need To Know About Apple cider vinegar

Updated on October 25, 2015

Versatile Apple Cider Vinegar

When I first wrote about benefits of apple cider vinegar for weight loss, there was little interest in this age-old natural treatment.

It's been a few years since I started writing about apple cider vinegar, and I have seen interest in ACV growing during these years. Also, thanks to Hollywood celebrities like Scarlett Johanson and Megan Fox's endorsements, apple cider vinegar came back to limelight.

In response to my articles, I receive many queries about apple cider vinegar and its benefits, uses, cures and how to use apple cider vinegar.

With these growing queries, I wrote more articles about apple cider vinegar, each focusing on various aspects of apple cider vinegar - uses, benefits, side-effects, best vinegar to buy, how to drink apple cider vinegar and so on.

This article is like an index of all those articles - pulling together all the advice and information in one place.

  • Here, you will find most of your questions answered:
  • What is apple cider vinegar?
  • Why is cider vinegar so popular for weight loss?
  • How do I use ACV for healthy skin and shiny hair?
  • Are there any side-effects of using apple cider vinegar?

I hope that this article serves as a reference article and binds other articles in a structure that's easy to follow.

Why you should keep cider vinegar at home

Those who are new to apple cider vinegar, I wrote a hub that lists all the uses of apple cider vinegar, from weight loss to diabetes, and even for skincare.

This article may show you some of the benefits of apple cider vinegar which you may not have thought otherwise. It is a versatile product to have in the kitchen.

Apple cider vinegar for weight loss

The most queries I got for apple cider vinegar were about detox, weight loss, and burning belly fat. Which is why I wrote a few different articles, exploring various aspects of apple cider vinegar for burning fat.

Better hair with apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is acidic and it helps in re-balancing the pH factor.

Apple cider vinegar also removes nasty chemicals and dandruff built-up from the scalp, thus creating the right environment for healthy hair growth.

The following two articles show how to use cider vinegar for hair growth, as well as for adding shine to your hair by using cider vinegar as hair conditioner.

It also shows how to make ACV hair rinse.

Cider vinegar for glowing skin

Apple cider vinegar can be added to bathwater, as well as used as a toner on skin. It can help in restoring the protective layer on our skin.

The following articles show how to make cider vinegar toner, how to use it on skin, how often to apply, and precautions to take while using cider vinegar for acne, warts, pimples and overall skincare.

Not All Vinegars Are Created Equal

That's right. White vinegar found in the kitchen is not the same as apple cider vinegar.

Not all apple cider vinegar brands in the market are same.

So which one should you use? These two articles explore two options - either to make ACV at home, or to buy from the market.

These articles explain the ways to make apple cider vinegar at home, and if you choose to buy one from the market, which is the best brand to buy.

      Hi Mizjo, thanks for your comment. I have been using ACV for my hair, and I haven't noticed any 'darkening' effect on my hair, but again I only have a few, stray grey hair, so the effect may not be noticeable. In my reading, I haven't come across any such benefit of ACV.

      Hello there, very good article. I've known for years that ACV was great for fungal growth (cured my friend's oral thrush) and adding some shine to your hair. Never thought about its hair restoring properties, though. I'll be trying it next for that, as I am losing hair at an alarming rate since I reached 'a certain age'.

      PS: In my stand against ageism, I have allowed my hair to keep its natural salt and pepper-ness. Does ACV darken hair? Because I wouldn't mind that.
