The uses of apple cider vinegar have been documented since 400 BC by Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine). Its popularity is increasing, and the uses are astounding.  It has been used for a number of reasons from cleaning microwaves to leveling out pH in the body. This very well can be considered a natural miracle remedy.  Before you use any of this information, first check with your Dr.

If you have high cholesterol, it may help you control it. According to a 2006 Japanese study, rats that were fed apple cider vinegar showed a reduction in blood cholesterol levels.


Another 1999 study conducted by Hu reported that women who consumed oil-and-vinegar salad dressings frequently (5-6 times or more per week) were 46% less likely to die from heart attack compared to those who rarely consumed them.

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar makes it easier for your body to absorb nutrients, including calcium. You can reap amazing  benefits from apple cider vinegar, and the cures and studies listed are only a few examples, to help steer you in the right direction.
