Apple cider vinegar has been widely used as a successful remedy for centuries.
Did you know you can use apple cider vinegar for hair and skin care, for household cleaning, healing and cooking!!
Apples are one of the most health giving fruits available. They contain a host of nutritious properties, which can be found in pure apple cider vinegar!
It has been proven to have therapeutic advantages for numerous complaints ranging from obesity; that's how I discovered the benefits; to arthritis, asthma, colitis, diarrhea, eczema, hiccups, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, leg cramps, to name a few, and it helps rid the body of toxins.
Apple cider vinegar lowers glucose levels, my husband is diabetic, and as I mentioned, it is a good item for weight loss, making you feel fuller and eat less!
The enzymes in apple cider vinegar also promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, and can help regulate candida issues. It helps skin, by working: to eliminate acne; as a skin toner; to soothe sunburns and insects bites; fighting shingles; and the list goes go on.
Today, many cleaning supplies are full of harsh chemicals. Apple cider vinegar can surprisingly provide an excellent, cheap alternative that absorbs odors and has antibacterial properties.
Apple Cider Vinegar can also be used for a number of other purposes, such as salad dressing, as a flavoring agent, and as a refreshing drink, hot or cold. I love mine with honey, especially in the morning.
I think you would agree that natural cures are less toxic than those made from chemicals, so they are better for your health and for the environment. But remember to always check with your physicians.
We buy Bragg's, raw, organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, with the mother, at $7.95 a bottle.
You will see strand like sediment floating at the bottom. No, it hasn’t gone bad, that gunky looking stuff at the bottom is the most important part! It’s called “the mother”, and it contains raw enzymes and gut-friendly bacteria that promote healing.
