Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is made by juicing apples and fermenting them to become apple cider. Then it is fermented again with acid-forming bacteria to create vinegar.
Top benefits of ACV:
Words of wisdom:
To reap the benefits, you should buy raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar, preferably organic. The raw and unfiltered ACV contains the mother, a natural sediment with pectin, trace minerals, beneficial bacteria and enzymes (which makes it appear cloudy, not clear).
To be completely honest, the taste gets some getting used to, even when diluted. I prefer 1 tablespoon of ACV and 1/2-1 tablespoon of honey mixed together in 8-10 ounces of hot water.
