I found out about Apple cider vinegar (acv) around 2009, 2010. I was having a good deal of gut/digestion issues, among other things, and was seeking any resource that might help! I came across the website, earthclinic which became a wonderful resource for natural solutions.
Allow me to remind everyone that I am not giving medical advice, but just sharing my journey that has allowed me to move toward better health.
According to earthclinic.com, I started using acv for – “antifungal2 and antibacterial effects. Studies have even found that apple cider vinegar has immunostimulant properties.3 It promotes good digestion and skin health.” And it has really been a huge help with my digestion.
I generally make an acv tonic that is a mix of apple cider vinegar, a bit of honey and a couple of shakes of cinnamon with room temperature water. I drink it most mornings when I first get up, before eating. On occasion, when I can find it, there’s a premixed apple cider vinegar drink that is available in several flavors that I buy. Oh, I get the acv with the the “mother” in it. If you look at the bottle, there is a darker cloudier bit which is the mother and is dissolved into acv as you shake it up.
And there are so many other benefits of acv. Below are 9 benefits listed on earthclinic.com:
Alleviate acid reflux
Aid weight loss and calorie reduction
Clear sinus infection and congestion (yes it works for this too!)
Treat pink eye
Alleviate ear ache pain
Improve skin health
Balance hair sebum and ph
Stop food poisoning
Reduce high blood pressure
