    I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. It has what is called the "Mother" at the bottom of the bottle - that brownish sedimentary substance. That's good! You want that. Look up Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar on a search engine and you'll get all kinds of good stuff. I add a splash of it to a glass of one third organic lemonade/two thirds water for a general tonic.

    It is definitely very good to prevent and cure arthritis and I use it for this.

    My father, who is in his 80s swears by it too.

    There are books on the subject by Margaret Hills SRN:

    Hills suggests that we get arthritis from the food and drink we consume if these things contain purines, which convert to acid crystals that accumulate in the joints and cause pain. Citrus fruit and black tea are two main culprits she lists. Her method of treatment is to cut out the offending food sources and to take regular doses of cider vinegar.

    White vinegar is formulated so that it is little better than a petroleum product. Never use white vinegar for human consumption. The only thing I use white vinegar for is cleaning.

    White vinegar is OK for cleaning, but not for human consumption.  Cider Vinegar contains more nutrients and enzymes.  If raw apple cider vinegar is available it is even more beneficial. 

    You'll find a lot of information and links to more articles here.

    Apple cider vinegar is a magic drink with loads of health benefits - ranging from weight loss to digestion, blood pressure and overall wellbeing. The effectiveness of apple cider vinegar depends on the "mother" of vinegar, which is the muddy, grainy substance that's seen at the bottom of apple cider vinegar bottle. This mother is present only in unfiltered, unpasteurized vinegar. The regular vinegar found at home does NOT contain the mother of vinegar. I have written three hubs on the benefits of apple cider vinegar, which contain very helpful tips on how to drink ACV, and the best ACV to buy from the market.
