Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: The Health Benefits of the 'Mother'

Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, is made by fermenting apples in a wood barrel. It can be a powerful, healthy, weapon in your arsenal. It can help you battle a variety of illnesses and flush out toxins.
The truly useful apple cider vinegar is not the clear vinegar you find in many stores. There's no health benefit from clear vinegar. The powerful benefits are found in the natural organic apple cider vinegar with a brownish tinge to it and floating stuff inside. The floating matter is called "mother" and is formed from the pectin and apple residue. This brown vinegar is the one creating all the buzz, the one with the minerals, amino acids and vitamins.

Scientists have measured ninety different substances in apple cider vinegar including important minerals, trace elements, vitamins, lactic  acid, enzymes, amino acids, as well as roughage in the form of apple pectin; and these ingredients serve to enhance its reputation as a true health benefit. Calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, malic acid and pectin are several of the minerals which it has in perfectly balanced amounts, which gets most people's attention.
• Potassium – to avoid runny nose, hair loss, brittle teeth
• Malic Acid – to fight infections from harmful bacteria and fungus
• Acetic Acid - accounts for the sour taste of vinegar; lowers the blood's pH levels thereby creating an inhospitable intestinal environment for bacterial & fungal infections.
• Pectin – facilitates regulation of blood pressure and removal of bad cholesterol
• Drinking Raw Apple Cider Vinegar first thing in the morning will invigorate you.
• You could drink Apple Cider Vinegar straight, but you need to be careful of your teeth, since the acid in the vinegar can damage your teeth. It's best to mix with a small amount of purified water.
• Mix Apple Cider Vinegar with water and agave or nectar for a refreshing morning drink.
• You can use Apple Cider Vinegar when you're making a salad.
• If you like to pickle fruits & vegetables, raw apple cider vinegar is a very healthy choice.
