Want to feel good? The easiest thing you can do for yourself

Apple Cider vinegar (ACV) is one of my favorite kitchen cupboard home remedies, it’s so much more than a salad dressing, and if you’re one of my clients you’ll often her me say, take a teaspoon of ACV in warm water on rising every morning. Well let me explain why.

Apple cider vinegar is a completely natural product. It’s made from apple juice and is fermented to hard apple cider, it is then fermented a second time to ACV; the fermentation process leads to its benefits. Traditionally ACV has been known as a ‘digestive aid’ when properly fermented. It's best to buy organic, properly fermented and (preferably) unpasturised. I like the Melrose or Bragg brands!

The organic acid content of vinegar helps nourish the correct intestinal flora whilst inhibiting pathogenic bacteria, which may thrive in an alkaline environment. Therefore, a teaspoon of ACV before a meal may set the correct environment in the stomach for protein and minerals to digest and absorb.

These are the benefits that are claimed by taking the advice of a teaspoon of ACV
  • Balances the inner eco system
  • Detoxes the body
  • Aids in Weight loss
  • Cures Sinusitis, Infections, sore throats, flu
  • Clears the skin of acne, contact dermatitis and other skin problems.
  • Lowers cholesterol and high blood pressure
  • Kills candida and fungus and populates the gut with friendly bacteria
  • Eases Arthritis, stiff joints and gout
  • Strengthens Stomach Acid

  1. I was very interested to read your comments about the positive effects that apple cider vinegar can have on skin conditions - and I believe that it is also beneficial for those of us who suffer from warts.
