Apple Cider Vinegar
The healing powers of apple cider vinegar, were first discovered by a Vermont Physician D.C. Jarvis, who believed that the properties in apple cider vinegar could prevent illness in people and pets. He found that regular doses of cider vinegar and honey could increase longevity.
Apple cider vinegar is produced when bacteria naturally present in the air converts the small amount of alcohol in apple juice to acetic acid, which is responsible for the tangy taste of vinegar. All vinegar is made this way, but apple cider vinegar is preferred for medicinal uses as it is less acidic than wine vinegar, making it much easier to digest.
Apple Cider Vinegar is high in potassium, which is needed for the proper functioning of the heart and muscles, and in pectin (fiber).
A few tablespoons of cider vinegar a day can help clear a body of toxins. It can also be used in a compress to reduce swelling and pain.
