The Many Uses Of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Updated on September 19, 2012

Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar made by the fermentation of apple cider .The process in which sugar in food is broken down by bacteria and yeast. In the first stage of fermentation, the sugars are turned into alcohol. Then, when the alcohol ferments further, you get vinegar.

The best type of apple cider vinegar to use is one made from cold pressed, organically grown whole apples, where there no chemicals or preservatives, which contains the "mother of vinegar", and is not pasteurized. The "mother of vinegar" is a natural gelatinous substance formed during the last fermentation step. This type of apple cider vinegar can be found in health food stores and some general grocery stores.

If you decide to use non organic apple cider vinegar be sure to mix with water as it is very acidic.

If you can get over the taste of apple cider vinegar, you will find it one of the most important natural remedies in healing the body.

I cannot guarantee any results, since there are so many other influencing factors, some of these work for some people and some may not work for others. All you can do is try and see what works for your ailment.

      Hey Bohemian- Yep the better apple cider vinegar, which is unfiltered and not pasteurized and made from whole organically grown apples, is the best type to use for

      health and cooking.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

      Thanks for the tips. I've heard of some of these things but not all, and I've never heard about the cold-pressed vinegar. I'm going to buy some!

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for the comment. I didn't include amounts for the uses because I didn't feel comfortable recommending doses. Perhaps I can amend my article to inclyde some links for that kind of information. I can see where it might be helpful though.

      I know people who use it for everything. They mix it with various concoctions like honey, or lime or just plain water.

      I didn't know it had so many uses although I do swear by it for digestion and cleaning out my kettle(lol). I wish you had included some how to use it and amounts but I understand. Thanks for a good hub.

      Hi Chris, My dad swears by apple cider vinegar. He always gave us cider before over the counter medicines. I have some serious sinus infections, and drink cider and it seems to help more than antibiotics. I mix it about 2 teaspoons with a glass of water and a dash of honey most times, it taste better that way. I usually drink 2-3 glasses a day.

      This is interesting--I have never cooked with this before or used it in recipes, but I'm interested because you mentioned it can help with allergies, which I've battled my whole life. They aren't too intense, but every once in a while I get an allergy attack and it is pretty bad. This is good "food for thought."
