Amazing Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar has been use for thousands of years for health purposes. Hippocrates, the Greek physician and the founder of Western Medicine both prescribed it to his patients and used it himself.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) should never be taken internally without diluting it first. Some people use two teaspoons in a large glass of water, others use two tablespoons. Some prefer to alter the taste with a little honey or a pinch or two of baking soda.

Pasteurized ACV does not contain any enzymes or pectin or most of the vitamins and only a portion of the minerals because the solid portions (the mother) has been filtered out and the product heated. Unfiltered ACV has all the properties and is almost always also organic (no harsher pesticides).

While the amount of vitamins is not high, there are over 90 known substances in the raw vinegar.  Therefore it is likely the phytonutrients combine to create synergistic effects that so many claim has cured or helped them with numerous maladies.

The acetic acid in the vinegar is however a main reason. It helps with stomach acid which is essential for digestion – especially proteins.

Some people do not create enough hydrochloric acid in their stomachs. This is more true as we age. This aids in breaking down foods into more usable components which might be the reason for many of the amazing health benefits that people have sworn by for centuries.

  1. Joanna, I have no idea if it will help. But it has so many health benefits, is cheaper than any medication without the nasty or dangerous side effects.

    Hi Hilma,
    I have a blood disorder called HSP – Heriditary
    Spastic Paraplegia. It causes stiffness in my legs and weakness. I have trouble walking! I have been to several doctors and have had lots of tests. I take Baclofen to help relax my muscles, helps a little. I’m going to take ASV 3 X a day. Do you think this will help? Joanna Jackson

    Hilma, thank you so much for enabling me to fix my carpal problem: 100%! I thought the pain would ruin my life, but I am 100% cured! I can’t thank you enough!

    New topic- I’ve been using vinegar to eliminate acid reflux for many years (8+). I had horrible acid reflux that is now 99% gone. I use a bottle of red wine vinegar (pomegranate flavored) to flavor a gallon of white vinegar, for best taste. It’s the acidity that does the trick. My digestion has never been better. It costs a few pennies a day.

    I posted on this topic on The People’s Pharmacy a year or two ago but I can’t find it over there. It was detailed info.
