Taking a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar every day is said  to cure everything from gout to allergies and more. It’s said that it is  important that the apple cider vinegar you take be organic and have the stringy-looking ball of  matter that either floats at the top or settles at the bottom of a bottle of the  vinegar and is the source of its sour, fermented taste.

Here are some of the best documented and strongest health benefits of apple  cider vinegar.

1. It Helps Ease Stomach Cramps and Diarrhea

This is a proven apple  cider vinegar cure. The probiotics in the vinegar help ease diarrhea and the  pectins from the apples in the vinegar ease stomach cramps. Mix a tablespoon or two in water or your favorite juice to get the best results.

2. It Prevents Indigestion

Another proven health benefit is its ability  to stop indigestion before it starts. Simply mix 1 teaspoon of honey and 1  teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water and sip it slowly a half hour before you eat something you know will cause you indigestion. You’ll be surprised that you feel  fine after eating!

3. It Helps Ease Nighttime Leg Cramps

This old folk remedy has a long  history of proof to its effectiveness. Simply mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with honey to taste before going to bed and drink it slowly. Those  nighttime cramps shouldn’t bother you anymore. Do this every night before bed  for continuing results.

4. It Drains Your Sinuses

Do you have a stuffy nose due to allergies or  some other reason? Fix it with a teaspoon of straight apple cider vinegar in a cup of water. The harshness of drinking the vinegar without any flavoring  will help drain your sinuses and clear your nose.

5. It Helps Energize You

Apple cider vinegar is excellent for beating  exhaustion. The amino acids1013176_large it contains counteract the buildup of lactic acid  you can get after exercising or other intense physical activity. It’s also full  of electrolytes that help eliminate that tired feeling. Electrolytes are the  same thing that are in sugary sports drinks. A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in chilled water has the same energizing effect without the sugar and artificial  colors and flavors.

Apple cider vinegar is also good for treating  heartburn, easing the pain of arthritis, whitening teeth, and so much more.

Here are some additional helpful hints:

  • Acne treatment: 1 part apple cider vinegar and 4 parts water in a solution dabbed on acne can help to treat your skin.
  • Allergy relief: 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water can help with allergies.
  • Bug bite help: a little straight or partially water-diluted vinegar can take the itch out of bug bites.
  • Dandruff treatment: straight apple cider vinegar (or a 1/2 vinegar/ 1/2 water solution) poured on your scalp and massaged in for a few minutes can help with dandruff and other irritated scalp conditions.
  • Detox bath: a cup or two of vinegar in a warm to hot bath is a fabulous detox.
  • Diuretic: drinking a spoonful  of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water can help with bloating, as it is a natural, gentle diuretic.
