What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is an effective natural bacteria-fighting agent that contains many vital minerals and trace elements such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chlorine, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron, silicon and fluorine that are vital for a healthy body.

Natural Apple Cider Vinegar is made by crushing fresh, organically grown apples and allowing them to mature in wooden barrels. This boosts the natural fermentation qualities of the crushed apples, which differs from the refined and distilled vinegars found in supermarkets. 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. 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.

Uses of Apple Cider Vinegar




Weight Loss

While it is not known why, many people claim that Apple Cider Vinegar promotes weight loss. Some theories suggest that ACV helps to speed up the metabolism, while others suggest that it burns calories. A number of nutritionists also believe that combining Vitamin B6 and Lecithin with Apple Cider Vinegar is highly effective for weight loss. A suggested remedy is to mix 2 teaspoons of ACV mixed with a glass of water and drink this before every meal or sip it slowly throughout the day

Bad Breath

Due to its acidic properties, Apple Cider Vinegar makes a wonderful remedy for bad breath or halitosis. Simply add 1/2 tablespoon of ACV into a cup of water and gargle the mixture in your mouth for 10 seconds at a time until the cup is empty.

Body Odor

Apple Cider Vinegar is an effective body odor remedy, since it can help adjust the skin's pH level which helps to eliminate odor-causing bacteria. For armpit odor, simply wipe them once each morning with undiluted apple cider vinegar (using a cotton ball). For foot odor, fill a pan with warm water and add 1/3 cup of ACV, then let your feet soak in this mixture for 15 minutes once per week.

Stomach Problems

Constipation

Diarrhea

There are various causes for diarrhea, and although it should not be left untreated, it is often a natural way for the body to rid itself of harmful compounds and ingested materials. Apple Cider Vinegar is a fantastic natural remedy for diarrhea since the high pectin concentration acts as a protective coating which soothes the irritated lining of the colon. A suggestion is to add 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to a large glass of water, and drink this 3 times daily while the symptoms persist.

Major Illnesses

Diabetes

Apple Cider Vinegar may help to control high blood sugar levels, which is why it is often used as a natural treatment for Diabetes. Visit our Diabetes Remedies page to learn more about how ACV can be used to treat this condition.

What are the Side Effects of Apple Cider Vinegar?

There are no major known side effects of Apple Cider Vinegar when used in moderation. However, drinking vinegars, acids or even lemon juices on a regular basis can lead to a deterioration of dental enamel. This can give your teeth a yellowish look and make them more sensitive to heat and cold. To prevent this, the vinegar should always be diluted with water or a pinch of baking soda should be added in order to reduce the acidity level.

Where and How to Buy Apple Cider Vinegar


Apple Cider Vinegar can be found in almost any natural health or nutrition store, or from a variety of online retailers such as Amazon.com (see links below). Look for ACV with a pH level of 5 to 7. Apple Cider Vinegar can also be found in capsule form which help eliminate the strong sour taste associated with the liquid vinegar.

  1. Diarrhea is something that happens to everyone and usually is more of an inconvenience than a real medical problem. Most of us just grin and bear it but there are those times when it can be a real inconvenience and that’s usually because we are caught off guard and don’t have time to go and buy some drug for treatment. These are the times when Hand Bidet Sprayer can be a life saver. How will this help you may be asking now? It helps because besides using it to clean yourself on the outside in a wonderfully efficient manner it can also help you get clean on the inside. Yes, on the inside = by shooting a blast of water up the pipes. Ok now, I can hear the objections but wait a minute. You don’t object to the dentist shooting water in your mouth for a thorough cleaning do you? And how does that feel after, refreshing right? If you’ve ever had an enema then you know how “light” you felt after, and for good reason. But most of us don’t have time, or privacy (I’ll be right out kids, sweetheart, business meeting…fill in your own interruptions) for an enema, and they don’t feel so good while you’re doing it either. But with a controlled shot of water, controlled by both the handle on the sprayer nozzle and the control valve at the source you can make sure that you are cleaned out and good to go…..for a long time. It’s really common sense if you think about it. Again not getting graphic but you use water to clean everywhere else on and in your body that you can reach. This is just a way to reach a spot you couldn’t reach before. Bidets won’t do this for you; they don’t have the control or the water pressure. Only a Hand Bidet Sprayer gives you the “hands on” control needed to do it right, and no one will be the wiser. In just minutes you can be flushed clean and light as a feather and confident to head out knowing that there is nothing left (for a while anyways) that can cause you the embarrassment of running for your life to get to the nearest bathroom. www.bathroomsprayers.com
