Raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar truly is nature’s perfect miracle food—and should never be confused with regular clear vinegar. Clear vinegar has none of the health properties of Apple Cider Vinegar and can actually be harmful.
Traditional uses of Apple Cider Vinegar are almost limitless! To name just a few… Apple Cider Vinegar has been used to ease digestion, aid in flu prevention, reduce inflammation, regulate pH balance, ease nausea and heartburn, as a staple in detox regimens, and for a number of skin conditions—including reducing acne and smoothing wrinkles!
But why exactly does Apple Cider Vinegar contain so many healing properties?
The secret may lie in its alkalizing effect!
Even though Apple Cider Vinegar is acidic (like a lemon or lime), it creates a perfect alkaline environment in your body that is the exact opposite of what most diseases require to thrive.
And then there’s the incredible concentration of naturally occurring vital nutrients…
Raw, organic Apple Cider Vinegar is made from organic apples and undergoes a double fermentation process, which produces enzymes and preserves its health-promoting characteristics.
Some of the most beneficial nutrients in raw, organic Apple Cider Vinegar include:
· Potassium: essential for normal heart, kidney and other organ and cellular function
· Iron: important for blood health
· Magnesium: vital to heart health
· Enzymes: boost chemical reactions in the body
· Malic acid: protects vinegar from viruses, bacteria and fungus
· Acetic acid: slows the digestion of starch and inhibits bacterial growth
· Calcium: builds strong bones and teeth
· Pectin: helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol
· Ash: maintains a healthy alkaline state in the body
Plus, Apple Cider Vinegar provides a veritable smorgasbord of vitamins and powerful antioxidants including vitamin A, B6, C, E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, beta-carotene and lycopene!
But there is ONE extra-special ingredient that puts Apple Cider Vinegar over-the-top in health-promoting potential—and that’s “Mother.”
Also known as Mycoderma aceti, Mother of Vinegar is created when acetic acid bacteria and a type of cellulose develop during the fermentation process.
Mother of vinegar is harmless—and the phenomenal health-promoting characteristics it possesses are out of this world! Such as living nutrients and friendly bacteria—the kinds you hear about that are so important for “balanced” health…
A body that’s not properly pH balanced is wide open for disease and sickness because:
#1 Acidity robs minerals from bones, cells, organs and tissue!
#2 Without minerals—vitamin absorption is compromised!
#3 Toxins and pathogens easily build up and the immune system is suppressed!
This is why Hippocrates made Apple Cider Vinegar his go to treatment of choice to fight infections—and why more and more people are realizing…
Natural REALLY IS better!
This wonderful clump of soil we call home is truly a miracle! Everything—I mean everything—we need to thrive and survive is here on God’s green earth… but we haven’t been the best stewards.
In an effort to make more and better food and feed billions of people, something has gone awry. The food we eat is processed or genetically modified—or pumped so full of antibiotics and pesticides—you have to wonder… are we trying to poison ourselves?
There’s something wrong with our way of thinking when something as pure and natural as Apple Cider Vinegar is considered an “out of the box” remedy—when in fact it’s just a good old simple common-sense way to promote overall health and well-being!
So why do some people find it hard to believe that one simple food can do so much good? Partly because we’re conditioned to believe that natural cures don’t work, and that we have to put our faith in dangerous pharmaceuticals to find relief.
Now if that’s not “out of the box,” I don’t know what is! How often has the next big drug been fast-tracked through the FDA and fed to millions of trusting people expecting to be cured…
Only to discover that the medicine they were taking was making them sicker—even killing them?
Pure and Simple Health with Apple Cider Vinegar
Using Apple Cider Vinegar to promote your well-being, stop hair loss, treat a bladder infection, alleviate allergies, reduce varicose veins, lower your blood pressure or soothe a sore throat is so simple—you only have ONE rule to follow…
Dilute, dilute and dilute. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Apple Cider Vinegar is highly acidic—so it’s always best to mix it with water. If a particular remedy calls for two teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to be ingested—stir it into a glass of water—because drinking Apple Cider Vinegar straight may damage tooth enamel. Or burn going down the hatch.
First Aid with Apple Cider Vinegar
I’ve mentioned a few uses—including how Apple Cider Vinegar has been shown in studies to impact the fight against cancer, support heart health, and prevent many common illnesses.
And there are plenty more ways it can safeguard you against other life-threatening illnesses!
But let’s start here with some simple, basic, every day health issues that I bet you, a family member, a friend or neighbor could definitely put to use today starting with…
Apple Cider Vinegar First Aid: External Itching
There are numerous causes of external itching—dry skin, allergic reaction, an imbalance in the body—you name it! And lotions or creams don’t always soothe. In fact, if you’ve scratched till your skin is raw, lotion can further irritate.
But I can almost guarantee that no matter the cause—a little APPLE CIDER VINEGAR can tame an itch in no time.
Mix APPLE CIDER VINEGAR with water
Dab the affected area a couple of times a day
Stop when the itching subsides
No more running to the drugstore to take care of:
- Painful boils!
- Athlete’s foot!
- Jock itch!
- Fungal ear infections!
- Corns, calluses or warts!
- Even swollen, unsightly varicose veins!
Only vary the ratio of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR to water (you’ll discover how easy it is to do) and you’ll be able to home treat just about any annoying skin condition without costly ointments or prescriptions!
Considering you’d pay about $12-$15 for the leading over-the-counter anti-itch or anti-fungal cream—and only about $6 for a 32 ounce jar of raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar that you can use again and again and again…
I’d say that’s not only an effective solution but smart economics!
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR First Aid: Sore Throat
Most of the time a sore throat is nothing serious—and if caught early enough a common sense remedy like APPLE CIDER VINEGAR can save you hours of time wasted at the doctor’s office—and a hefty co-pay IF you have insurance!
In cases of viral infection, antibiotics don’t help—but that doesn’t keep doctors from over-prescribing unnecessary medication that could make matters worse.

• 1/4 cup filtered water
At first sign of sore throat
Mix APPLE CIDER VINEGAR with water
Gargle with this solution for at least 30 seconds

Repeat several times
You can save yourself time and MONEY by using APPLE CIDER VINEGAR the next time:

Apple cider vinegar cleanses the colon, which also supports a healthy prostate.
