An apple a day…

As it turns out, a squashed, fermented, liquidized apple will keep the doctor, the dermatologist and possibly the dietician away for some time. When it comes to natural remedies and products there are few that can rival the benefits that come from simple, easily available apple cider vinegar.

Real, organic cider vinegar is made from fermented, pressed apple juice that has separated from the sugars in the juice leaving the vinegar behind. Although the bits and pieces floating around at the bottom of the vinegar may be a little off putting, this is where the beneficial enzymes, pectin and trace minerals are sitting. These cloudy bits and pieces are known as “the mother” in apple cider vinegar, not surprising as this is where the all the good stuff is found.

Organic apple cider vinegar has many great health benefits which are not localized to a specific part of the body as it is known to help relieve symptoms of eczema, improve digestion and prevent candida spreading through the intestines. Additionally, apple cider vinegar has for a long time been considered a natural tonic to help boost energy and immune function-a much healthier choice than sugar loaded drinks such as Red Bull.

The real treat with organic apple cider vinegar is that everyone has heard of it. Unfortunately when it comes to super foods such as raw maca powder or chia seeds, they may be very good for one’s health, but not a very common product on the weekly shopping list. Organic apple cider vinegar is therefore the best of both.
