A Remedy for Lice:
You would read that this vinegar can help to get rid of these critters. But studies proved vice versa. Apple cider has no anti-lice properties in it. Hygiene and anti-lice shampoos are your best bet for this case.
Apple cider vinegar can also help in teeth whitening but it can also erode away the tooth enamel. If you drink or eat food containing vinegar wait to brush your teeth for 30-40 minutes. This will ensure that you don’t remove the softened enamel with harsh brushing and toothpaste. Consult a dentist if you need teeth whitening services.
A lot more is also famous about this vinegar like it is healthy for the gut and lowers blood pressure. But more research and evidence is needed to confirm this. So, before you believe in anything on the internet do your part of research and confirm it from a health professional as well.
