With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing, many people are a bit more health-conscious than they were before, which is one of the few good things that has come from the whole situation! One of the most popular household health-boosters during this time has been apple cider vinegar, which is correlated with certain antibacterial and healing effects. Want to know five different ways to make a healthy apple cider vinegar tonic? Read on below!
Eastern healing tonic
Apple cider vinegar has been used as a healing remedy for centuries, and this recipe combines it with tulsi, an herb widely used in the Ayurvedic healing tradition in India. Fill a mason jar three-quarters of the way with sliced tulsi and ginger root, and then fill the jar with apple cider vinegar. Let the mixture soak for a week or two, then open it and sift out the ginger and tulsi with a cheesecloth.
This tonic can then be mixed with salad dressing, beans, or even sparkling water. It can improve your gut health and your body’s response to physical stress.
Here’s a simple apple cider tonic for your skin that you apply directly to the skin instead of drinking. First, boil one cup of water and let a dandelion tea bag steep in it for about 10 minutes. Mix in a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons of Manuka honey. Once the mixture has cooled, apply it to your face with a cotton ball, leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off. This approach can promote a youthful complexion and prevent acne.
Weight loss tonic
One of the most popular ways of using apple cider vinegar can be to help with weight loss. Apple cider vinegar is very acidic and can help you stay full longer when eating and have less of an appetite in general. Stir a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon of maple syrup, and a tablespoon of grated ginger into a cup of brewed green tea. Add lemon juice to taste, and you have a healthy potential weight loss supplement that goes down easy.
Immune system booster tonic
Apple cider vinegar can have a powerful effect on the immune system, which is something we’re all looking for with everything going on in the world. For a potentially immune-boosting tonic, mix 12 ounces of apple cider vinegar with a quarter cup of raw honey, half a lemon, three-quarter ounces of fresh rosemary, a tablespoon of turmeric, and two teaspoons of red chili or cayenne pepper. Shake the mixture together and refrigerate it, and take a tablespoon daily.
Vegan immune system booster tonic
Many of these apple cider vinegar tonic recipes involve honey, but if you prefer to leave it out you can make a great vegan tonic for your immune system as well. Mix one cup of warm water, one tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, half a tablespoon of maple syrup, and half a teaspoon of ground ginger. Blend the mixture and drink in the morning to potentially fight off more pathogens.
