The Ayurvedic uses of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar has a host of powerful uses and can be strongly aligned with the ancient principles of traditional Ayurvedic medicine. 


The naturally fermented drink is made from delicious cold-pressed apple juice, broken down by bacteria and yeast and converted into alcohol (cider). This is then further fermented into vinegar until no alcohol remains! 

The power of Apple Cider Vinegar and its range of beneficial qualities come from ‘The Mother’, a cloudy, natural enzyme, acid and friendly bacteria combination highly regarded for its health uses. 

While apple cider vinegar hasn’t always been used in traditional Ayurveda – it encompasses the characteristics of “Agni.” 

A person of Balanced Agni has the ability, not only to digest food effectively, but also mental and physical challenges… this is where our powerful Apple Cider Vinegar comes in! 

Here are some ways you can use Barnes Naturals Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to align with an Ayurvedic way of life: 

The key here is to start in small doses and see how your body reacts. Then you can up your intake based on your climate, diet and state of mental flow.


In warm water

The easiest way to take your daily dose of Apple Cider Vinegar is in a glass of warm water. If the taste is too strong for you, you can try a blend – such as our Apple Cider Vinegar with Manuka Honey (you can read about the history of Manuka Honey and Ayurvedic tradition here).


In skincare 

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a great way to bring natural ingredients back into your skincare regime. The acidic properties of ACV act as a gentle exfoliant – and the naturally occurring acetic acid, lactic, citric and malic acids work together to support and protect the skin from free radicals.


In your meals and sauces 

Apple Cider Vinegar is a delicious source of enzymes, friendly bacteria and natural acids, making it a great addition to your meals wherever possible. Mix it with fresh homemade salad dressings or dips to boost their flavour and increase your ACV intake.
