An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Not only will eating more organic fruit help you stay healthy, but today I am talking about the benefits of apple cider vinegar. Not the apple cider vinegar that is the store brand's version that is basically see through that you can buy for 1.99. I am talking about a good quality, organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar like Braggs!

Apple cider vinegar is made from fresh ripe apples that are fermented and then undergo a specific process to make the end result.

To name a few, this type of apple cider vinegar contains: malic acid (which helps with bacterial and fungal infections) beta-carotene, pectin (helps with cholesterol and lowering blood pressure) and vital minerals (including: potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, iron, and fluorine).

After what I have read and talked with a few other people who use it daily, I take 2 tsps. first thing in the morning. I started out doing it with some raw honey and a glass of water (filtered of course). I am now going to up my dose, to the recommended one, which is 2 tablespoons daily.

Now, I just drink it straight with a little water. This sounds weird, but as soon as you swallow it, you feel it in your brain. Once you try it, you will know what I am talking about.

Many say that this type of vinegar helps with weight loss and the reasons why are not certain, but if you want to use it for that, take 1-2 tsp. before each meal.

A great online resource for benefits of apple cider vinegar can be found HERE!

Enjoy! (well you probably wont enjoy it like you would another drink of your choosing, but it certainly DOES a body good!)


  1. I can totally attest to the burning feeling all the way to your brain! I truly believe in this stuff and use it everyday!! (when I can bear it) :)

  2. Really? Is it the Pectin? Where did you get this information. I'm interested.
    I'm looking forward to learning more about this!
