Found this great article on Raw Apple Cider Vinegar that I wanted to share!

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is made from nutritious organically
grown apples and retains many of the fruits’
beneficial components because raw apple cider vinegar is not pasteurized.
And in its two fermentation processes, it produces enzymes and
life giving nutrients that make apple cider vinegar the powerhouse it is.

Beneficial ingredients in raw apple cider vinegar give it its power to make us feel better,
look better and feel energized. Just look at some of the beneficial ingredients in raw apple cider vinegar:

  • Potassium – helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses.
  • Pectin – helps to regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
  • Malic Acid – gives ACV the properties of being anti-viral, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal.
  • Calcium – helps create strong bones and teeth.
  • Ash – gives ACV its alkaline property which aids your body in maintaining proper pH levels for a healthy alkaline state.
  • Acetic Acid – It appears that this acid slows the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
A Few Benefits of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar mixed in 4 ounces of purified water after
    a meal has been used as a natural
    remedy for heartburn and as a replacement for toxic heartburn medications.
  • Raw Apple Cider Vinegar may help improve bowel irregularity,
    thereby removing toxins from the body at a faster rate.
  • Helps clear up skin conditions and blemishes giving a smoother texture and complexion.
  • Raw Apple Cider vinegar may also help with joint pain and stiffness.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar helps to break down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them.
    For this reason, many diets include ACV in their regimen.
  • On a small scale, ACV was studied by researchers at Arizona State University.
    The preliminary
    study was published in the Diabetes Care journal.
    It reported that ACV helps reduce levels of glucose.

Raw organic apple cider vinegar is even good for pets.
It has been used to help control fleas and even promotes a healthy shiny coat.


So why not add some into your diet today? Winking smile
Just make sure it is RAW – & not the clear kind.
If stuff is floating around in the vinegar, you’re on the right path!

    I drink my acv every morning!! I use two TB Braggs ACV, about four drops of Orange NuNuaturals Stevia, a few shakes of cinnamon and cayenne, and the rest with ice cold H20. I’ve totally noticed a difference in my skin since I started about a month ago.

  2. I can’t wait to try the couple moves I have not yet – using the bench for straight leg swings & toe touch ones. I have done these before off a flat bench & stability ball so eager to try!!!

    Pinning the post to share the recipes & your info on raw ACV! THX!

    I’ve been wanting to trying drinking ACV but I never really knew what to mix it was and frankly was a little scared but the benefits are far to good to pass on!

  4. Lisa says:

    I like ACV in my veggie juices and coffee is my absolutely fave beverage

  5. Holly says:

    I actually love ACV, but haven’t tried it in a drink like this. It looks like you add water to the ACV, cinnamon lemon juice, and stevia? Can’t wait to try it – thanks!

  6. Elle says:

    There was a diet years ago where you drank ACV every morning with lethicin, I think it was… I read about these health benefits a few years ago and tried giving our dog ACV in her water.. but she refused to drink it. And that was only about 1/4 tsp in a huge bowl of water!

    I have used it topically to make my hair shiny off and on for years and do like it on my salad veggies.

  7. Absolutely rockstar! LOOOVEEE me some ACV + lemon + cinnamon first thing in the AM!!! 😉
