What is apple cider vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar made by the fermentation of apple cider. During this process sugar in the apple cider is broken down by Bactria and yeast into alcohol which then turns into vinegar.
This natural product retains all the nutritional goodness of the apples from which it was made. Plus it is fortified with the extra acids and enzymes produced during the two fermentation steps.
Beware not all apple cider vinegar’s are the same! Many commercial vinegar have been pasteurized, filtered or distilled in order to make the product look good and last for longer. Unfortunately this extra processing destroys many of the health benefits that were in the product in the first place.
The best type of apple cider vinegar to use is one made from cold-press organically grown apples in which no preservatives or additives have been added and which still contains ‘mother’. The mother is a natural jelly like substance formed during the last fermentation stage.
So what are the health benefits?
Apple cider vinegar has many different uses as a nutritional supplement it also has a large number of other health benefits:

- Coughs and colds
