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.

Dandruff

Apple Cider Vinegar can be used as a home remedy for dandruff. ACV is effective at treating dandruff by restoring the pH balance of the scalp and discourage the overgrowth of malassezia furfur, the yeast-like fungus thought to trigger dandruff. In order to use ACV to treat dandruff, mix 1/4 cup ACV with 1/4 cup water and pour the solution into a spray bottle. Spritz the solution on the hair and scalp--be careful to avoid the eye and ear area. Wrap a towel around your head and let your hair sit for 15 minutes to 1 hour. Thereafter, rinse the vinegar from your hair. This should be done once or twice per week.
