Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits
Organic Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is an incredible tool to use for both your health, and the health of your animals. It seems like everyday there is another story on the news about something that ACV has been found to treat or cure. Now, while I don’t buy into all of that, there are definitely benefits to adding it to your diet, and giving it to your animals.
Everything from a reduction in blood sugar, anti-inflammatory properties, weight-loss, acid reflux reduction, digestive issues, poison ivy, and so much more have been reported by people doing independent studies of Apple Cider Vinegar.
Simply put, ‘the mother’ refers to the fact that the Apple Cider Vinegar is organic, raw, unfiltered, and un-distilled. True ACV will have been allowed to age in wooden barrels. When it is bottled, you can see the strings or web-like strands (amino acids) in the brown, cloudy liquid. This liquid is a very powerful anti-biotic, pro-biotic, and anti-septic. Its healing properties have been documented for thousands of years. The normal ACV you find in the store is actually dead. The process of distilling the vinegar kills all the beneficial bacteria.
Best Ways to Use Apple Cider Vinegar For Yourself:
A great way to add these benefits to your daily diet, is to make a sort of tea and drink that in the mornings. This has been said to greatly reduce cases of acid reflux and other digestive issues.
