Apple Cider Vinegar | The MOTHER

So whats all the fuss about? Why should you take Apple Cider Vinegar?

Is Apple Cider Vinegar all its hyped up to be? YES! It’s one of those all purpose products, much like Coconut Oil, which can be used to consume, on your skin and around the house. It’s really important to get the raw (un pasteurised), unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar with the mother.

Well let’s start at the beginning ~ What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

It is, as it says in the title, made from apples. The liquid is squeezed out and bacteria and yeast are added to start the fermentation process. Yes, another fermented friend. This one is actually fermented twice to go from cider to vinegar. So automatically you know it contains beneficial bacteria and enzymes. The mother is what’s floating around in the bottle – the bacteria. Those bacteria are helpful with combating Candida yeast in the guts. It also lowers blood glucose levels, so it can be helpful with diabetes. It can lower high blood pressure as well.

Benefits of Apple Cider VinegarEven though it contains acid and is an acidic food in itself, it promotes alkalinity in the body, much like a lemon. An acidic environment in the body is a prime cause of disease and cancer. You want to avoid foods that create an acidic environment and consume foods that promote the opposite, alkalinity. So apple cider vinegar can help with any inflammatory related ailments including gum infection, joint pain, arthritis, sinus infection, etc. Apple cider vinegar reduces gas and bloating and can relieve symptoms of heartburn. Put away those pills and just shoot some vinegar! You may want to dilute your tablespoon of vinegar in water or herbal tea, as it could irritate the esophagus in a concentrated form. Overall it aids in detoxification of the body.

In addition to what it can do inside your body, apple cider vinegar works wonders on skin and hair. Dilute the vinegar with water and dab on pimples or swab your entire face. After washing your hair, rinse with a diluted vinegar mix for smoother, shinier hair. It provides additional clarification to remove dirt and oil and can help balance even your hair’s pH, not just your gut. It can help with dandruff and soothe irritation of the scalp. Add a cup to a bath to help sooth sun-burned skin. If you don’t know what to do about a wound or ailment, chances are apple cider vinegar and / or coconut oil will help.

It neutralises odours and has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, so a perfect natural remedy to use around the home, replacing some of the toxic chemicals widely available to keep your house ‘clean’. Again, dilute it with water and put in a spray bottle for your hard surfaces. You can mop floors with it, too . The smell will dissipate as it dries, both on surfaces and your body.

Right ok, I understand what it is and its benefits… How can I use it? Its great in salad dressings, to marinate meat and fish. My favourite way is one tablespoon mixed with a cup of hot water and half a teaspoon of raw honey. As a tea it is a little strange at first, but after a while you accustom to it…. Its now my favourite way to start the day.
