If you have not added this amazing natural and fermented liquid to your daily health regimen yet, it is high time you started! Apple Cider Vinegar is SO beneficial for so many health issues.  It is often touted as Mother Nature’s perfect food and magic medicine and is wonderful in helping to maintain the body’s vital acid-alkaline balance.

The vinegar that I am talking about is the raw organic apple cider vinegar that has the actual “mother of vinegar” in it. The “mother” is what is so beneficial to our health and 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.

Raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar contains nutrients such as malic acid, calcium, potassium, beta-carotene, pectin, acetic acid, and ash. All of these are vital to our body and assist in a number of health benefits.

Just adding 1 – 2 tablespoons a day of Apple Cider Vinegar to at least 8 ounces of water every day can make a HUGE difference in your health… and even your metabolism and your weight loss efforts!

  • Is Rich in Enzymes & Potassium

Apple Cider Vinegar Sipping Drink

If you can’t handle the ACV in straight water then this is a simple recipe to put together and make it more tolerable. When you consume it daily, it will go a long way in keeping your immune system strong and healthy and your weight loss efforts on track. When you even feel a touch of something coming on, this is also a wonderful drink to mix up and help fight off illness.

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 (good stirring medium to keep the “mother” suspended)

Directions:

Mix ingredients together in a glass container and 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.

And a quick trick to get your kids (or other sensitive palates) drinking Apple Cider Vinegar: Make some mulled apple cider on the stovetop. Remove from the heat and poor some into a mug and allow to cool slightly. Add about 3/4 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to the mug and serve. The mulled apple cider will mask the vinegar.
