A bit of ACV (20 grams) can help with blood sugar control after meals, says University of Chicago Medical Center’s Edwin McDonald IV, M.D.

“It won’t cure diabetes, but it may moderately lower blood glucose levels," he says.

Avoid it if you have kidney disease, and check with your doctor to see if it will interfere with any of your meds.

2. Lose weight.

Participants in a clinical trial who ate a diet that was 250 calories less than their daily estimated requirements and drank two tablespoons of ACV with lunch and dinner lost an average of 8.8 pounds over 12 weeks.

“A healthy scalp is key to preventing hair loss,” says NYC dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D. ACV “will help keep your scalp protected by wording off bacteria and keeping a balanced pH level.”

Mix 3 to 4 tablespoons and a cup of water and a spray bottle, apply it to the scalp and massage in, letting it sit 10 to 15 minutes before shampooing, then rinse well.
