Top Tips From Our Members

  • Cinnamon:
    Many of our members like to add a dash of cinnamon. While this is mainly for flavor,  the research data does suggest that cinnamon may have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Some researchers sees cinnamon as a promising alternative source of natural antimicrobial [1].
  • Ginger Juice:
    Adding ginger juice to the recipe is another popular add-on many of our members like to do. The popular honey-lemon-ginger combination tastes very good to most people. Besides the taste, another reason you may want to add ginger juice do the drink, is that ginger juice is a well known home remedy for parasites in humans. Ginger demonstrated significant antimicrobial and antibacterial  activity against different pathogens in multiple studies [2].
  • Cayenne pepper:
    Some of our members like to add a dash of ground cayenne pepper. Either in order to add a nice kick to the drink, or as a healthier alternative to the master cleanse lemonade recipe. We get many questions on this topic, and we tested it extensively. A lot of people like the cayenne kick flavor. Quite a few people, however, experience stomach pain after they add cayenne pepper to the drink. For this reason, if you want to try the cayenne pepper option, start with just a dash to see if you can tolerate the cayenne on an empty stomach. Another much safer option, is to add the cayenne to the salad dressing version (see below).

Summary Of Evidence

Below you will find a summary of the scientific evidence for each of the ingredients in the apple cider vinegar parasite cleanse recipes:

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Get Rid Of Intestinal Parasites?

Does apple cider vinegar get rid of intestinal parasites?

Vinegar has a long history of traditional use as a medicine to fight parasitic infections in humans. Historical records report that Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used apple cider vinegar with honey to treat infections.

Modern science was able to validate this use and the antiparasitic and antimicrobial properties of vinegar [3].

Specifically to apple cider vinegar, one study evaluated its antibacterial and antifungal activity against E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Candida albicans. According to the study [4]:

Apple cider vinegar demonstrated multiple antimicrobial potential with clinical therapeutic implications. ACV was able to destroy the structural proteins and metabolic enzymes of the pathogens tested.

Another study that tested the antifungal activity of apple cider vinegar against candida, a well known fungal parasite in humans, also found it effective [5].

The use of honey as a traditional remedy for microbial infections dates back to ancient times. This use is also validated by modern science.

With thousands of years of traditional use as food and medicine, olive oil is well known for its remarkable nutritional value and health benefits[9].

Parasite cleansing wise, the research data does suggest that olive oil have natural antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties. In multiple studies, olive oil demonstrated antimicrobial activity against different types of bacteria, viruses, and other human infections. The researchers believe that different constituents of olive can slow down the growth of various types of bacteria and fungi [10].

Garlic : Nature’s Natural Antibiotic

Garlic apple cider vinegar parasite cleanse

Garlic is another famous natural ingredient you see in many parasite cleanse protocols. Allicin, the active component of garlic, demonstrated strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties in multiple studies [11,12].

The research data also suggests that fresh raw garlic is more potent than cooked or boiled garlic [13], and is higher in bioactive components [14].

Allicin becomes available when you cut, crush or chew the garlic, but is highly unstable, and may change quickly [15]. For this reason, we recommend to consume the garlic shortly after you crush it.
