What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple Cider Vinegar is made by crushing fresh, organically grown apples and allowing them to mature in wooden barrels. When the vinegar is mature, it contains a dark, cloudy, web-like bacterial foam called mother, which becomes visible when the rich brownish liquid is held to the light. It is important when purchasing Apple Cider Vinegar to use as a natural remedy that you ensure that the ACV has "the mother." The mother can be used to add to other vinegar to hasten maturity for making more Apple Cider Vinegar. Natural vinegars that contain the mother have enzymes and minerals that other vinegars in grocery stores may not have due to over-processing, over-heating, and filtration. For this reason, it is recommended that you purchase only Natural Apple Cider Vinegar, with an ideal acidity (pH) level of 5 to 7. Apple Cider Vinegar also contains many vital minerals and nutrients such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chlorine, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron, silicon and fluorine that are vital for a healthy body.

Acid Reflux

It may seem counter-intuitive, but apple cider vinegar is actually an excellent natural remedy for fighting acid reflux. Although most vinegars are acidic, organic apple cider vinegar is actually alkaline and will help balance the pH levels in your stomach and prevent acid reflux. Try mixing apple cider vinegar, honey and water to create a delicious tonic to fight acid reflux. (Note: If you enjoy the taste of vinegar and are trying to cut out sugar, you can skip the honey. Most people like to add honey to sweeten the drink, but personally I love drinking apple cider vinegar and water alone.)
