Apple cider vinegar is alkalizing, it helps to reduce the inflammation in the body that could be at the root of 100’s of illnesses.
For starters, buy the “good stuff” raw/organic/unpasteurized/unfiltered, you should be able to see strands of sediment floating at the bottom – this is the “Mother” – it contains live enzymes and healing bacteria. Both Bragg’s and Omega Nutrition are good brands. I like to add a couple of teaspoons of ACV to about 6 -8 ounces of filtered water and sip on this in the evening.
The following is a list of some of Apple Cider Vinegar uses and benefits:
- Helps combat fungal overgrowth, eases discomfort associated with vaginal and bladder infections. Add 2 cups of ACV to a warm bath
- Makes hair shine: Rinse your hair with diluted ACV 2 – 3 times a week.
- Helps the body absorb iron, because ACV contains acetic acid
- Arthritis: ACV contains calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus that are very essential in relieving joint pain
- Heartburn/indigestion: Drink 1 tablespoon ACV mixed in one glass of water before every meal.
- Wash the pesticides from fruits and vegetables
- Neuroglia pain: Gently wipe affected area with upward strokes – it is best when someone else does this for you:)
- Contains small amounts of severalvitamins and minerals including: some pectin, vitamins B1, B2, and B6; biotin; folic acid; niacin; pantothenic acid; and vitamin C. It also contains small amounts of the minerals sodium, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium.
- Helps control blood sugar, by slowing down the digestion of foods. Helps to curb spikes in insulin.
- Supports the immune system: Unfiltered ACV helps replace the good bacteria in your lower intestines and that’s where 60-70% of your immune system lies.
