Its benefits ranges from aiding weight loss to improved symptoms of diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels.
As part of balancing the body’s pH, apple cider vinegar creates an overall detoxification of the body. Research shows that it can help stimulate cardiovascular circulation and help detoxify the liver.
Apple Cider Vinegar is High in Acetic Acid, Which Has Potent Biological Effects. Apple cider vinegar only contains about 3 calories per tablespoon, which is very low.There are not many vitamins or minerals in it, but it does contain a tiny amount of potassium. Quality apple cider vinegar also contains some amino acids and antioxidants.
Due to the acid content of ACV, it can be used as an antiseptic. As well as killing germs, it is also a mild antibiotic as well, (that is, it contains bacteria that destroy infectious organisms). It is claimed to lead to all sorts of beneficial effects… some of which are supported by science.

Beware : Check if the ACV you in your local store is pasteurized or not, because Pasteurization kills the helpful bacteria!.
Here is a simple 3 step process to may your own Unpasteurized Apple Cider.
Difference: apple cider is basically apple vinegar that has not fully fermented – when fully fermented (this happens more readily when exposed to air) alcohol converts to vinegar (hence the vinegar wine bottle you have never opened or you open then it turns into vinegar a few days later). the difference really is how long you let apple cider ferment?
Note: Leave it in a warm dark place for approx 3 weeks to allow the cider to transform into acetic acid . After the first 3 weeks, you can begin to taste your vinegar and once it reaches an acidity you like, you can actually transfer it to a bottle for further use.
- A small amount of sediment on the bottom is normal.
- You can also add yeast to activate and speed up the process of fermentation.
- For best result: keep stirring daily, monitoring and tasting.
- Do not use a metal container when making vinegar; acid in the mixture will corrode metal or aluminum objects.
- Cinnamon and Nutmeg, have been added to flavor the juice.
