Apple cider vinegar and spirulina both offer amazing health benefits. But did you know that ACV can also be used to help you around the house? It will not only help your digestive system, but will help make your bathrooms and kitchen sparkle! Spirulina was used by Ancient Aztecs because they knew of the amazing nutrients it provided.
ACV and spirulina are staples that should be in every household.
What Apple Cider Vinegar Can Do
For your bathtub and tiles, mix up a 1:1 ratio of vinegar and water in a spray bottle to give tough mildew stains the boot. You can add a few drops of essential oil such as lavender or eucalyptus as well. It will turn your bathroom into a spa!
For shower curtains, add one cup of vinegar to your washer and throw the curtain in. Add some baking soda to the wash for an even more enhanced clean.
Clean sticky scissors
Kids use scissors and glue for their school project again? Use the vinegar straight up and wipe down the scissors. This saves you using water and risk them rusting out.
Remove ink stains from floors and walls
Apply the vinegar full strength onto a cloth and wipe until the stains are gone.
Mix ½ cup baking soda with 1 cup vinegar and pore down your clogged drain. This will work every time and is much safer than the chemical-laden brands you get from the store.
What Spirulina Can Do
While you’re admiring the transformation to your home you can whip up a spirulina shake and watch how your health is transformed as well. Here are just a few health benefits you’ll gain. If you don’t know already, spirulina is an algae that forms on lakes’ surfaces. Sounds pretty appetizing, right? Don’t worry, these come in pill form, and they can also be made into delicious smoothies when mixed with vegetables and fruit. Here are just a few of the nutrients in this amazing food.
Spirulina packs a protein punch at 60%. That’s more than most meats at 15-35% and much more than beans at 6-11%. A diet that’s high in protein will give you a muscled, healthy body, even if you’re not looking to lose weight.
It has a very high concentration of iron, making it ideal for pregnant women and those with anemia, and doesn’t come with the unpleasant side effect of constipation, as many store-brands do.
Essential fatty acids
It contains a high amount of Omega-3’s, but is also rich in Omega-6’s and 9’s. There are many health benefits to having a diet rich in these EFA’s, including healthy skin, hair and nails.
Spirulina also contains a plethora of vitamins, including A, C, D, E, B1, B2, and B12.
How to take it
Spirulina comes in both powder form and pill form. You can take the pills with food, or mix up a smoothie and have it as a snack/breakfast, or whenever you need a pick-me-up. It is available both online and in most health food stores.
So, join the Spirulina club and you too can discover the amazing health benefits this has to offer. You will have so much energy you’ll be cleaning your house in half the time with the ACV you’ve discovered!
