Health Benefits to Apple Cider Vinegar

Organic cider vinegar and health go together, naturally!

Cider Vinegar and Health: Cider vinegar is amazing stuff.

People have been recommending vinegar, organic apple cider vinegar particularly, for health for many years.

In my family there are one or two fairly venerable books on the subject that have been a source of inspiration and useful knowledge for decades.

In my own life, I find it an invaluable health tonic and would recommend it to anyone. I can’t say I’ve used it consistently not at all, except that it very often gets used in salad dressings.

But when my health is compromised in any way, I use it as a first resort and it always seems to make a difference.

What are the nutritional benefits of cider vinegar?

Cider vinegar has a normalising effect upon our body chemistry. It is very easy living a modern lifestyle to eat far too many foods which are high in sodium and phosphorous.

The modern western diet tends to be rich in meats and other proteins and sugars, which have an acidic effect upon the system.

Cider vinegar helps redress the balance and works as a tonic, helping the body to detoxify itself. There is some complex biochemistry going on there because, although cider vinegar is mildly acidic, it has an alkalising effect within the body. This is due to the high levels of potash or potassium.

Cider vinegar has relatively high levels of potassium which is the balancer for sodium in cellular metabolism. Potassium is found widely in vegetables but, as we all know, many people still find it a struggle to get enough of them.

It also contains many other minerals such as calcium.

Of course, not everyone likes cider vinegar and some people will find it easier to balance their body's alkaline salts by taking a supplement. Here's one way this can be easily done:

How to use cider vinegar with food

As always, an organic apple cider vinegar is generally going to be better for you and better for the environment.

Cider vinegar can easily be integrated into your diet. Use it to make salad dressings, or just sprinkle it on green salad. You can also add it to roast lamb, much as you would add mint sauce. In fact, you can also make mint sauce with it and you can use it to make pickles and preserves such as chutney. It takes very little time to steep cooked beetroot in cider vinegar for an almost instant pic...
