Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has been used for many centuries with recorded uses as early as 5000 BC. Rumor has it that apple cider vinegar was one of Cleopatra's favorite beauty products. Today it is used for everything from combating heartburn to getting rid of fevers to eliminating acne. I love this magical liquid and use it several times a day, everyday. 

The Best Apple Cider Vinegar

The best apple cider vinegar is raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurized with the mother. Find it here. You will see a dark, cloudy substance in your jar. That’s the mother. Here’s a bit about the mother:

  • The mother is the result of natural enzymes and minerals in the vinegar.
  • The mother is killed when the vinegar is over processed, over heated, pasteurized, filtered, and altered.
  • The mother is used to make more vinegar (hence the name “mother”).
  • You can eat, drink, & use the mother topically. It’s very safe and nutritious.
