Since the beginning of recorded history, apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been used as an effective medicine to remedy a wide variety of ailments. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, for instance, was known to treat his patients with apple cider vinegar and honey for serious digestive conditions. Christopher Columbus would store barrels of apple cider vinegar aboard his vessels to guard his sailors from scurvy. Even the feared samurai warriors of Japan often relied upon apple cider vinegar to maintain their strength and stamina. Despite its considerable medicinal uses, however, apple cider vinegar -- which is made by fermenting the sugars from apples -- has more uses than most people realize. Its cosmetic benefits are especially impressive and give us even more reasons to stock our shelves with this gold-colored tonic.
Recipe: Take a 16-ounce empty bottle, add 2 tablespoons of ACV, juice of 2 lemons, 1 teaspoon ginger powder, 4 tablespoons of maple syrup, ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder and fill the rest of the bottle with filtered or distilled water. Shake the bottle vigorously to mix all ingredients and before each use. Keep refrigerated. Take 1 ounce every morning as a detoxifier or 1 tablespoon before meals for a digestive aid.
