If you can’t handle swirling ACV in your mouth, you can also take some ACV on your finger and rub it on your teeth for a minute and rinse with water.

It is important to know that not all apple cider vinegar is created the same. When Apple Cider Vinegar is made, using the slow fermentation process, there is buildup of yeast and bacteria called the mother. The mother is known to contain most of the beneficial ingredients : enzymes and proteins including probiotics. ACV containing the mother has a slightly cloudy consistency, and may create strands or sediment in the finished products. It is important that you look for organic, unfiltered, and unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar to reap its many health and beauty benefits.
