Eating Healthy Nutritious Food and Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted Oct 08 2008 10:38am
I remember growing up and hearing "Vinegar is so good for you!". I thought my grandma was a fruitcake to suggest actually drinking something that was that sour. But I must say a big "I'm sorry" to those old folks of my past and admit that they were 100% right.
I know the health benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV) are very far reaching. There is much evidence to support it. And while I cannot report any miracle cures as of yet because I am really only beginning to implement this into my daily routine now and I am sure that my energy level and overall health will increase and stabilize as a result.
Understand that not all ACVs are the same. The clear vinegar that looks like apple juice is not to be sought after. You'll want to find the ACV containing "the mother". This is described as "floating objects" by my children! Ha! But these floating objects settling in the bottom of the bottle are what insure you're getting the ACV with the most beneficial properties.
I've mentioned Paul and Patricia Bragg in an earlier post. Their ORGANIC, ACV "with the mother" is the top quality you'll find. Even at top retail price it is very affordable and usually not more than $5.00 for about 22 oz. Even better pricing can be obtained thru wholesalers online.
The Bragg family site, http://www.bragg.com/ lists some of the benefits of ACV INTERNAL BENEFITSRich in enzymes & potassium Support a healthy immune system Helps control weight Promotes digestion & ph Balance Helps soothe dry throats Helps remove body sludge toxins
There are countless testimonies of folks writing in to the Bragg family reporting how their health problems have been rectified by simply drinking a tablespoon of ACV every morning.
I have a friend who uses it in the morning and afternoon. She's a mom of 5 who homeschools, like myself, and she relies on the ACV to keep her going.
With all of the choices we can make in the area of eating healthy nutritious food and the countless "products" we could all throw money towards, I believe that it is pure wisdom to utilize the simplicity given us by nature.
Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar is economical and effective. If you don't want to be pulled this way and that way anymore and you want simple - then let live, whole foods and apple cider vinegar be your medicine. I'll be joining you in that!
