An apple a day, keeps illness at bay, and so does a daily dose of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is made through the process of fermenting apple juice which then turns into hard apple cider. It is then fermented once more, creating apple cider vinegar.
Although commonly found in the kitchen where it is used for a variety of dishes, apple cider vinegar has a multitude of uses many of which are medicinal in nature. It is rich in vitamin and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and E including pectin, and bioflavonoids. It also has amazing antifungal, antiviral, and antiseptic properties which can help treat a variety of ailments caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses.
Apple cider vinegar is amber in color and much like other types of vinegar, has a strong, pungent flavor. The sour taste can be attributed to its acetic and malic acid content which aids in the absorption of essential minerals.
After learning about its multitude of health benefits, I began incorporating apple cider vinegar into my daily diet by mixing 1-2 tablespoons into a glass of water and drinking it first thing in the morning. Because the taste can be quite powerful, I recommend sweetening it up a bit by adding a tablespoon of molasses or honey.
Here are the top 10 major reasons to drink apple cider daily. Remember, try and buy organic whenever possible and aim for the raw, unfiltered kind with the mother protein and enzyme strands still intact.
