Things to consider before buying Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

If you wanted to get full benefits of ACV then always use raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar.

Make sure that over the bottle of ACV, 'With Mother' has been written. Now, why I am focusing more on 'With Mother' is because it contains raw enzymes which are living bacteria growing into the vinegar and producing a chain of it. These living bacteria are known as probiotics which are so much beneficial for our body and helps in repairing & healing it.

You will be able to see small particles floating into ACV liquid bottle when it is raw, unfiltered and with Mother.

- If you are having very sensitive skin then do not leave it over your face for longer duration. Better to use it as Cleanser

- If your body is new to ACV and you are using it for the first time then better start with lesser quantity. Do not use it in excess or on daily basis. Just make your body comfortable with it and start using it with a gap of 2 days. After that, you can increase the usage

- As we are using raw and unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar so, make sure that you gently shake the bottle before taking a part of it. In this way, you will also get the 'Mother' which got settled down in the bottom of the bottle
