Grab That Apple Cider Vinegar!

Calgary, Alberta
April 7, 2016 5:24pm CST
I used to buy white vinegar, not anymore; I grab apple cider vinegar instead! Why? Take a look what apple cider vinegar does and gives to our body: 1. Apple cider vinegar soothes sore throat. 2. It lowers cholesterol. 3. It prevents indigestion. 4. It clears stuffy nose. 5. It aids in weight loss. 6. It helps control blood sugar. 7. It whitens teeth, and 8. It eliminates bad breath. So, next time you buy your groceries, grab that apple cider vinegar not the white vinegar, which contains a bit of alcohol. My wife and I used to buy the cheap Heinz Apple cider vinegar, but last week my wife asked me to buy the raw unfiltered Bragg brand because it has not gone through filtration or chemical process that eliminates its natural nutrients. Above photo shows the different brands of vinegar in our kitchen cupboard. Disclaimer: I am not advertising the above vinegar products.

I drink a few tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar every morning. Braggs is the best. I just swig it but some mix it with juice. I just want to get the drinking of it over with. Helps with high blood pressure and kills free radicals too.

It is also the fastest cure for Acid Reflux @antonbunot . 1 tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar in a 1/4 cup of water with 2 drops of honey. 5 minutes, heartburn is gone. Can be drank before, during or after meals and at bedtime.

My friend, I never run out of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar because my husband needs this to manage his blood pressure. Apart from this, the benefits you mentioned are well proven. I really love this apple cider.

@antonbunot Is it? The big bottle is only 417p here, in the Philippines. The small bottle is 243p. The Aunt Sue's Raw-Wild Natural 907g honey (which is our choice among a lot), costs more at 719.50!

Yes, i am taking it before bedtime , 2 tablespoons of Bragg's in a glass of water . Then , in the morning on a glass of warm water on empty stomach . I did that when my BP was 110/90 , 90 being borderline for diastolic , and it was that for two days . So i did the above and when the nurse took my BP it was back to my normal 110/80 . So now , i always take it .

I buy the cheapest kind of apple vinegar and use it when I wash my hair. It makes it shiny. I use a small amount with a litre of warm water and pour it over my head at the end of the procedure.

You did the right think to buy the Bragg brand, because it's the only cider vinegar with all those properties, most of the others are not better than a normal white vinegar.

@antonbunot Bragg is the only organic one. Of course to cure a sore throat, lose weight and stomach problems, also the normal white vinegar (only the one made from grapes) works.

@hereandthere The Heinz is also an apple cider vinegar. But I think it is filtered unlike the Bragg brand. It is much cheaper though.

I was told that Heinz is also a good brand of acv. So, when we didn't find this Bragg in our supermarkets, we bought & used Heinz. Now that my elder sister from the US sent me 5 big bottles of this Bragg acv, heaven!

It's not for everyone. I tried the apple cider vinegar and developed an eye twitch within days that took a week to stop, after I discontinued using it. In preparing food, I still use it, but not on its own.

I didn't realize apple cider vinegar was so healthy. I've started making salad dressing with balsamic vinegar and olive oil which is much healthier than my former mayonnaise dressing.
