How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for Detox

1. Internal Use

ACV is very acidic so don’t drink it undiluted as it could harm your tooth enamel and your esophagus (although when we take ACV internally, it has an alkaline effect in our body). The fact that ACV alkalize the body could play a major role in its healing properties as mentioned previously.

Don’t use a lot of ACV – dilute 1 to 2 tablespoons in a large glass of water, and drink it along with your meals once or twice a day. Consuming ACV in (normal) food amounts is likely safe, but in some cases consuming a big amount of ACV is not recommended. Consuming large amount of ACV on a daily basis for a long-term might lead to problems such as low potassium levels and lower bone density. Also ACV may interact with certain medications, such as diuretics, medicines for diabetes and heart disease, so if you take medications and intend to use ACV on a daily basis for a long term, make sure to consult your doctor first.
