What is in Apple Cider Vinegar

Here is where there seems to be some argument on the internet because many suppliers of apple cider vinegar get their product from manufacturers that take steps to "kill" all the vitality that is naturally found in raw vinegar. 

They do this to make ACV visibly appealing to shoppers. They want the liquid to be clear and appetizing in appearance. Non of this cloudy, mother ingredient foolishness. (more on this below) 

If you read test result that say apple cider vinegar does not contain significant amounts of a given nutrient, you are probably looking at a test that has been done on this "sanitized" version of ACV.

The fact is, natural, unadulterated ACV is loaded with nutrition.

Some of the more recognizable nutrients are:

  • beta-carotene
  • magnesium
  • potassium
  • calcium
  • riboflavin
  • thiamine
  • vitamins B6, C and E
  • fruit acids and pectin

Natural ACV is made by crushing organically grown apples and maturing them in wooden barrels. The resulting rich brownish liquid contains a cloudy web-like form called the mother.

Natural vinegar containing the mother has enzymes and minerals that you won’t find in the clear filtered and pasteurized versions you commonly find in grocery stores.

A very effective natural bacteria-fighting agent, ACV contains vitamins, vital minerals and trace elements of iron, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, calcium chlorine, sodium, sulphur and copper that are necessary for a healthy body.

What are the Benefits?

ACV has been used for centuries as a wonderful natural cure for many ailments which normally require medication and antibiotics. While medications invariably come with the very real possibility of side effects, vinegar (with rare exceptions) has no side effects.

Its popularity has increased lately because of its many health and beauty benefits but …
