Well, I am pretty sure by now you heard about the new fat burning detox drink that everyone is talking about and if you don’t know what I am talking about I am going to tell you. Now read up, you get it, read up, like listen up, funny right. Ok, enough joking around. I‘m talking about the Apple Cider Detox drink also known as the ACV Detox drink. Now before I began with telling you how to make the drink I am first going to talk to you about some of the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar all though there are a lot of benefits of drinking it. I am going to share a few…
I started drinking Apple Cider Vinegar Detox drink because I was looking for a way to naturally detox. As I was researching on different ways to naturally detox, I found out that not only does ACV helps to detox the body, it helps with burning belly fat, bloating, digestion and helps with weight loss along with some other things. I was sold after that, I couldn’t wait to get to the store
I found out the most famous brand of ACV used is Bragg raw, unfiltered, and organic with the mother. However, any brand of ACV is good in my opinion as long as it is raw, organic,
unfiltered and with the mother. Just in case you’re thinking I have some Apple Cider Vinegar in my cabinet I can use, well you better check to see if it has what I listed because if it does not or if it is clear where you can see right through it. It is not the right type of ACV you need. To be sure you have the correct one the ACV should look cloudy like some dirty water. I am sorry it’s the best way I can describe it.
You’re probably wondering why it has to be a specific type. Well, here is why all ACV is made with 100% all natural apples and water. The difference is pasteurized and the Mother. The raw, organic, unfiltered, with the mother is unpasteurized and unfiltered the mother is formed naturally during the fermentation process. Fermentation just means that the sugar or some use honey is beginning to turn into alcohol, then to an acetic acid bacteria (these are the good guys). While the clear ACV is pasteurized, filtered and without the Mother which is why it is clear and not cloudy.
ACV raw, unfiltered, organic with the mother has a lot of benefits that most of us are unaware of. For that reason. I am going to list 7 benefits that Dr. Oz claims and add three more. In the end I will share with you the ACV detox drink, I got from JJ Smith that I use 3 times a day before meals and sometimes after if I forget to drink it first. This drink has helped me get rid of some of my belly fat, bloating and helped with my digestion and to lose weight along with eating healthier and drinking my green smoothies but I will talk about green smoothies another time.
Having dandruff is bad, it’s embarrassing and a nuisance. Dandruff likes to show up all on the shoulder area of your clothes and if you have on dark color clothes you can forget it everyone is going to see it if you happen to scratch your head. Well Dr. Oz says, “Just mix equal parts (about 1/4 cup each) apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray onto your hair after shampoo, let sit for 15 minutes and rinse. Use twice per week, and you should be flake free in no time.”
ACV can be used to soothe your sore throat if you don’t have money to purchase cough syrup or you just don’t want to keep taking cough syrup. Just “Mix one teaspoon apple cider vinegar, one teaspoon cayenne pepper and three teaspoons clover honey in a glass of warm water for an easy elixir. All three ingredients will work together to help you heal: Apple cider vinegar and honey have antibacterial properties, and the capsaicin in hot peppers helps alleviate pain. If that sore throat is due to allergies, apple cider vinegar packs an extra punch, since it also breaks up mucous and sinus congestion.”
We all know how bad and embarrassing foot odor can be and I am not talking about sweaty feet. I am talking about that foot odor you can smell even when you have your shoes on, the kind when you need to keep your shoe in the window sill or outside on the back porch to air out kind of funk. Well, here is a solution to the odor problem. You’re going to need baby wipes (I would suggest the unscented, but you don’t have to any kind will do) Apple Cider Vinegar and Ziploc bag. “Pour one-cup apple cider vinegar over baby wipes. (Thick single-use size paper towels will also work.) Soak the wipes overnight in the fridge, then store in a zip-lock bag to use as needed. The acids in the apple cider vinegar will alter the pH level of your skin, which fights off bacteria that cause smelly feet. In a pinch, these wipes also make great all-natural underarm deodorizers. Don’t be thrown off by the vinegar smell – it will dissipate once it dries.”
ACV is good if you have a problem with constipation going to the bathroom it will help you go. It will reduce gas “dilute a tablespoon of enzyme-rich apple cider vinegar with a cup of water or tea, and drink before a meal. This will also combat constipation, since the vinegar stimulates digestive juices that help your body break down food.” It can also help with heartburn “take a dose as soon as you feel heartburn symptoms coming on for a quick fix. Some theories suggest that heartburn occurs because of low stomach acid levels; so vinegar brings that level up. If you hate the taste of this mixture, try adding a dollop of honey.”
ACV is good for your face if you have problems with acne. It can be used as an astringent for your face. “Apply a washcloth soaked in diluted apple cider vinegar to your face. Afterward, the protective acidic layer will make your skin feel smoother, absorb excess oil and reduce fine lines. This works by restoring the proper pH levels to your skin, and beta-carotene helps to counter future skin damage. Plus, a dab of diluted apple cider vinegar left overnight on age spots, pimples or acne scars will help reduce their appearance.”
After you had a wonderful day out in the sun and you noticed you’ve gotten sunburned. Then ACV is your go to treatment. “Try adding a cupful or two to your bath to neutralize the burn. After soaking for 10 minutes, the apple cider vinegar will have helped restore your skin’s pH levels and your skin will feel cool and soothed.”
Yellow teeth are a no, no. It is not attractive when you have yellow teeth. So if you want to whiten your teeth and get rid of those nasty stubborn stain. “Rub apple cider vinegar directly on your teeth, then rinse with water. Be careful not to do this too often, as it can break down tooth enamel. For a less abrasive whitening mouthwash, mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water, then swish around in your mouth.”
I am going to add two more benefits to drinking apple cider vinegar and I am going to share with you the way I do it every day and it’s absolutely working. However, this is not an overnight improvement you will see results over time.
Benefit #8 Helps to Burns Belly Fat, with Weight Loss and Detoxing your body
ACV can be used to burn belly fat, it will boost your metabolism and helps with weight loss since it contains pectin that will help suppress your appetite. Which will cause you to eat less, therefore you consume fewer calories and in return lose weight. However, it is not a result that will happen right away. It will take time and you will see a difference over time. It also helps with detoxifying your body to get rid of all the toxins that is stored in your body. So if you have a habit of eating a lot of junk food and other unhealthy foods, drinking apple cider vinegar will help get rid of those toxins if you drink it after each meal.

Benefit #9 and Diabetes
For those who suffer from diabetes, it helps with lowering blood sugar and insulin levels. According to WebMD article Carol Johnston, PhD states, “that the vinegar blocks some of the digestion of starch. “It doesn’t block the starch 100%, but it definitely prevents at least some of that starch from being digested and raising your blood sugar.” However, not everyone is certain about the effects of drinking apple cider vinegar to help lower blood sugar levels. Web MD also interviewed Michael Dansinger, MD and he states, “I’m concerned that drinking vinegar, even diluted in water, increases acid in your system, which puts a strain on your kidneys and bones.” ACV is not I repeat is not to be used in place of medication. It only helps with lowering blood sugar levels, it does not cure diabetes. Michael Dansinger, MD also states “If you have gastro paresis, a common problem with diabetes that slows stomach emptying, be careful. Early research shows apple cider vinegar may make this problem worse.”
Benefit #10 it gets rid of Candida
ACV is rich in enzymes that can help rid your body of Candida which is a form of thrush in the human body that leads to yeast infections, fungus of the skin, and nails, Autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, lupus, psoriasis, scleroderma, or multiple sclerosis as well as brain fogs, poor memory, lack of focus and more.

- Then stir it up and drink.
I am going to let you know it does not taste good, matter fact it taste awful. However, after you drink it a couple of times you begin to get used to the taste. Also if you really just can’t take the taste JJ smith says, “add a capful of no sugar added juice to it for taste or Stevia” but I do not add any type of sugar or sweetener because in my opinion it defeats the purpose of losing weight.
SN: You can also add about ¼ Tsp. of Cinnamon or Turmeric to this detox drink for anti-inflammatory boost.
Do not drink ACV without water. Drinking it straight will damage the tooth enamel and burn your esophagus. Drink with a straw to avoid damage. Rinse mouth with plain water after drinking just as an extra precaution.
