Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar with a Drink Recipe!

Apple cider vinegar is pretty amazing. It's well known for it's health benefits. Just ask my Great Uncle Ed (who drank it in his orange juice) who claimed that it was great for longevity & overall health. He lived to a ripe old age of 94.

So here's what you have to know about apple cider vinegar. To get all the great health benefits, it's very important that you buy an unpasteurized variety containing "the mother". If it contains the mother, it will be somewhat cloudy looking, as opposed to the clear liquid sold in most grocery stores. One of the most well known brands is Bragg, which sells an organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the mother. The taste of ACV is unique. I personally don't the taste on it's own, but once mixed into a drink, it can be very pleasant.

Hot Apple Cider Vinegar Drink Recipe:

1 Mug of Very Hot Water
1TSP to TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar (to taste)
Honey (to taste)

Very simple to make. Once you have your mug of hot water, mix the ACV into it, then add your honey to taste. If you don't enjoy the taste of the vinegar, as long as you drink it while it's hot, it is not noticeable.

Here is a link to the Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar that I use:

Back to the health benefits....

Some consider ACV to be a cure all. I wouldn't go that far, but it is certainly said to help many ailments and improve general health. Just to list some, ACV is said to: help yeast infections, sore throats, stomach upset, respiratory issues, aids weight loss, helps lower blood pressure & high cholesterol, control blood sugar, improve bone health, relieve cramps, cancer prevention, helps fight infection, and is rich in many vitamins, anti-oxidants & free radicals.
