You’ll notice that it not only helps you get to mealtime more easily, but when mealtime does arrive you’ll be hungry for it and then digest it more easily.

If you have a wart you’ve been wanting to get rid of, you can try using ACV in order to treat it. It’s an easy enough process to use apple cider vinegar, and you may find that it’s a reliable and cost-effective way to go instead of having it professionally removed or using an over-the-counter wart removal product. You simply wash and dry the affected area, douse a cotton swab in ACV, apply to the wart and cover with a bandage to keep it in place. Let it work its magic while you sleep, and attend to it again in the morning. Repeat the process until it’s completely healed.

It does so by helping to reduce the amount of glucose in the body.

7. Helps the Sinuses

Apple cider vinegar has been shown to help treat a sinus infection, and if you use it at the first sign of sinus trouble, you may be able to avoid it altogether. The method to use this as sinus relief is to add it to your humidifier so you can breathe it in, or add hot water to it so that you can breathe in the steam. The goal is breathing it in through your nose, so if it’s already stuffed up you might be too late to help matters. It’s always recommended to check in with your doctor if your sinuses are creating a bigger problem for you.

8. Helps When You’re Tired

Taking apple cider vinegar can help boost your energy levels, and help when you’re starting to feel fatigued, or even exhausted after a workout. The reason why it helps with your energy levels can be attributed to its effect on your blood sugar, as well as the way it can boost your immune system. Drinking a shot of ACV as a pick-me-up may work for you, and would be a more healthy tactic than reaching for the afternoon cup of coffee or an energy drink.

9. Can Make Your Teeth Whiter

You can use ACV to whiten your teeth, but you’ll want to make sure to rinse really well after using it, as the acidic nature of apple cider vinegar can be counterproductive if left on too long. It’s most effective at treating stains on your teeth, so if you have an overall yellowing of your teeth this may not be the best way to go. You can use it directly just as if you were brushing your teeth with it. When you rinse, be sure to do so until as much of the acidic taste has left your mouth as possible.
