The Benefits of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Some of us in FJA take 2 tablespoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar every morning, personally I have seen a difference in my energy level and it has aided with digestion. Time will tell if my skins texture and tone evens out and if it helps boost my immune system. We shall see. Melissa's family swears by it and I'm starting to see why!

Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, is made by fermenting apples in a wood barrel. It can be a powerful, healthy, weapon in your arsenal. It can help you battle a variety of illnesses and flush out toxins.

The truly useful apple cider vinegar is not the clear vinegar you find in many stores. There's no health benefit from clear vinegar. The powerful benefits are found in the natural organic apple cider vinegar with a brownish tinge to it and floating stuff inside. The floating matter is called "mother" and is formed from the pectin and apple residue. This brown vinegar is the one creating all the buzz, the one with the minerals, amino acids and vitamins.

What's Good About Apple Cider Vinegar?

Several ingredients found in Apple Cider Vinegar serve to enhance its reputation as a true health benefit. Calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, malic acid and pectin are several of the minerals which it has in perfectly balanced amounts, which gets most people's attention.
  • Potassium – to avoid runny nose, hair loss, brittle teeth
  • Malic Acid – to fight infections from harmful bacteria and fungus
  • Acetic Acid - accounts for the sour taste of vinegar; lowers the blood's pH levels thereby creating an inhospitable intestinal environment for bacterial & fungal infections.
  • Pectin – facilitates regulation of blood pressure and removal of bad cholesterol

  1. Apple cider vinegar can be a great addition to any diet to balance and invigorate your metabolic system. Your body particularly needs this kind of help when you are menstruating and your body is going through all of its changes, with the increased nutritional needs they present. I recommend starting with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water. You can add equal parts honey to sweeten the drink and add nutrients that will strengthen the immune system. The ACV will improve your body's overall hydration and its ability to digest and absorb nutrients from your diet, helping you to complete your menstruation more quickly and with less discomfort.
