Clear vinegar has none of the benefits of raw organic apple cider vinegar. Through its processing and distilling, it’s been stripped of everything beneficial and can be detrimental to your health due to the fact that it is dead instead of alive.
Only raw and unpasteurised organic apple cider vinegar has the “mother of vinegar” that makes the vinegar so beneficial. The “mother” is made up living nutrients and bacteria. You can actually see it settled in the bottom of the bottle like sediment.
Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (wonder drug) has the following health benefits:
– contains pectin – regulates blood pressure and reduces bad cholestrol
– potassium – prevents brittle teeth, strengthens hair and stops runny nose
– beta carotene – helps in countering damage caused by free radicals, helping one maintain firmer skin and a youthful appearance
– acetic acid – this acid slows the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals
– 1 tspn of raw apple cider vinegar after meals helps reducing heartburn and improves bowel movement
– helps reducing joint pain and stiffness
– helps to break down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them. For this reason, many diets include ACV in their regimen.
How to have it – You need to make sure that you use only the natural, organic variety of apple cider vinegar; the sparkling clear variety will have practically no health benefits. The best way to have this vinegar is first thing in the morning. You can mix two tablespoons each of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water, and drink it. This solution may taste slightly acidic, and may not seem to be the best way to start your morning, but once you know of the immense benefits that follow, it will not feel all that bad.
