I learned that when people talk about ACV (apple cider vinegar) they are referring to organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar, although technically those letters would stand for any apple cider vinegar. I was first told the benefits of ACV when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999.
I’ll explain the picture in a minute.
The health benefits are too numerous to list here.
At the time all I was told was to start the day by drinking 2 tablespoons of organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water with a teaspoon of raw honey. So I did it. I hated it. In fact, 18 years later I still can’t get used to the taste.
NOTE: I recently started putting ACV in my morning pot of my Ageless Antioxidant Immunity Tea, along with cinnamon. I started with just a teaspoon and worked my way up to 2 tablespoons in an 8 cup teapot. I still smell it, but I barely taste it. Thankfully your palette changes and you can acquire a tolerance for things if they are properly disguised.
What made me think of talking to you about this was that my dad got a Nutribullet and it came with a big book of recipes. But it sounds like, from our conversation, it doesn’t go into specifics about some things like which kind of apple cider vinegar you should use when it says ACV. And this is a very important point if you are taking it for your health.
All apple cider vinegar is not created equal.
So in the photo, you have the most well-known brand of organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar, Bragg. You can now get it in about any grocery store. You will not find it with the other vinegar. It will be with the healthy stuff.
Next to it is a brand people in the U.S. are familiar with. White vinegar does not have the health properties of ACV. It does make a great natural cleaner. It’s what I use in my house instead of chemicals.
Next to that is your average grocery store apple cider vinegar. Again, it doesn’t have the health benefits you are looking for from ACV.
I like this article because below the 15 uses it answers some questions you may have about what it is and why you should use it.
Then you can check out this one from David Wolfe who does the Nutribullet infomercial.
