Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) – who would have ever guessed that this natural and fermented liquid could be useful for a myriad of health issues?

Over the years, as I have learned more about this natural health aid, I have been amazed at some of the conditions it can be beneficial for. In fact, it is often touted as Mother Nature’s perfect food and is wonderful in helping to maintain the body’s vital acid-alkine balance.

Now, the type of Apple Cider Vinegar that I am referring to is the raw, organic, unpasteurized version that still has the “mother” floating in it, such as  Bragg Organic  Apple Cider Vinegar.

Only raw organic apple cider vinegar has the actual “mother of vinegar” that makes this vinegar so beneficial to our health. The “mother” is made up living nutrients and bacteria that you can actually see as they settle in the bottom of the bottle like sediment. The “mother” is believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

 

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

What is in ACV to support it’s reputation for health benefits?

Nutrients Available in ACV:
  • Malic Acid – helps in fighting fungal and bacterial infections
  • Beta-Carotene-helps in countering damage caused by free-radicals
  • Calcium – helps create strong bones and teeth.
  • Potassium – helps to prevent brittle teeth and nails, hair loss and sinusitis.
  • Pectin – the fiber that helps to regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
  • Acetic Acid – helps to slow down the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
  • Ash – gives ACV its alkaline property which aids your body in maintaining proper pH levels for a healthy alkaline state.

How to Add ACV into your Diet:
  1. Use it in your Salad Dressings
  2. Add a splash to your sauces once they are done cooking (will brighten the flavors)
  3. Add a splash to your soups once they are done cooking (will brighten the flavors)
  4. Add it to Roasted Vegetables right before eating
  5. Use it in your Meat Marinades
  6. Make a sipping drink from it (Recipe Below)

 


APPLE CIDER VINEGAR SIPPING DRINK:Ingredients:

  • 2 – 3 teaspoons Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 16 ounces Filtered and Purified Water
  • Raw Local Honey (to suit your taste)
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (optional, but a nice flavor enhancer and stirring medium to keep the “mother” suspended)

Directions:

1.  Mix ingredients together in a glass container and sip throughout the day. It is preferable to sip throughout the day, rather than drinking all at once, to help maintain a balanced alkalized state in your body. Always stir before drinking as the “mother” will settle.

Note: You can just barely warm this concoction on the stove if you would like to sip it warm, but do NOT allow to boil or even simmer. The point is to keep the Apple Cider Vinegar in the raw state.
