Apple Cider Vinegar

We have all seen apple cider vinegar and most of us have consumed it in some way or another.  Apple cider vinegar is easy to find and also comes with a host of healthy benefits.  In researching the benefits of apple cider vinegar for this article, it seems as if there is nothing it isn’t good for.  A few benefits that I particularly like are that it stimulates your metabolism, lowers blood sugar, helps cleanse the body by getting rid of free radicals, “scrapes” the cholesterol off blood vessel walls and cleanses and tones the digestive tract, increases circulation and soothes achy joints and sore muscles.  We have been using it for years in our home whenever anyone starts to get a scratchy or sore throat.  We mix apple cider vinegar with warm water.  Then we gargle with it.  Between each gargle, you have to drink a swallow.  It has worked to rid us of getting a full blown sore throat every time.  A lot of the articles I read added honey as well to the warm water and apple cider vinegar mix.  I usually don’t, just so that I don’t eat any more sugar than necessary.  If I add to much vinegar, I just add more water.  Also, I have found that it is better if you purchase a good, organic apple cider vinegar, such as Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.  Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is unfiltered, unheated, unpasteurized and has 5% acidity.  It contains the  Mother of Vinegar which occurs naturally as strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules.  It seems to be milder, to me, than the processed apple cider vinegar that is so common.  Check out the link below for more benefits of apple cider vinegar…
