I Loved Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for My Liver Until I

Is ACV Safe for People With Liver Damage or Hepatitis C?

18. Whiten Teeth - Make those teeth sparkle after swishing around some apple cider vinegar diluted with two parts water. Then brush as usual. The bacteria fighting power of ACV is an added bonus too.

17. Fade Bruises - Coming from a long line of klutzes, this was a use of apple cider vinegar I was happy about. After a bump or the appearance of a bruise dab on some apple cider vinegar. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and will help to ease the discoloration.

3. Odor Neutralizer - Is your home filled with an unpleasant odor that just won't go away? Place some apple cider vinegar in a dish and leave near the offensive odor to help get rid of it quicker.

25. Salads - I think this one goes without saying, but it certainly needed to make the list. I almost never buy salad dressings. Whisk together some apple cider vinegar and olive oil and your favorite additions (garlic, mustard, citrus, honey, etc) for a delicious drizzle over your organic greens. It's even great in recipes.

Final Word: What to Know Before Drinking ACV.

21. Juice - Consuming organic raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar can assist in many of the health benefits I listed above. Try adding it to juices or smoothies if the taste is too pungent for you on its own.

According to the CDC, about 2.4 million Americans, or roughly 1 percent of the population, had hepatitis C between 2013 and 2016. Given the possible benefits of apple cider vinegar for liver health, the million-dollar question is: Is it safe or recommended for people living with this disease?
