Enjoy Fresh Produce and a Healthy Glow with Apple Cider Vinegar

By Kelly Joyce Neff
NewsTarget/Truth Publishing, Feb 6, 2007
Straight to the Source

(NewsTarget) The well-known saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," is actually derived from the old English saying:

"To eat an apple before going to bed will make the doctor beg for his bread."

The undisputed benefits of eating apples, however, can be further multiplied many fold by the consumption of apple cider vinegar (ACV). A veritable host of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients and substances is available in ACV to improve and reinforce health.

When acid crystals harden in the joints and tissues of any animal, the joints become stiff and the tissues become hardened. The meat becomes tough and tasteless. But, when the animals are given ACV regularly, the precipitated acid crystals enter into a solution and pass out of the body, thus making the body tissues healthier and tender. This applies to human flesh also.

Now, when body tissues hold all the precipitated acid crystals they can, the crystals next appear in the bursae and joints of the body, resulting in arthritis and bursitis. One to two teaspoons of ACV with one to two teaspoons of raw honey in a glass of water daily will help relieve the stiff aching and prematurely old joints. You be the judge. See how elastic and well-oiled your joints will become!

Even the very healthiest people must continually fight the build-up of acid crystals in the body. The strongest solvent of acid crystals is a simple drink made up of ACV, raw honey and water. This powerful daily mixture puts the acid crystals in solution so they can be flushed out of the body by the kidneys and other organs of elimination. The malic acid content of the ACV dissolves calcium deposits in joints, while ACV acts to balance the acid-alkaline pH levels in the body and helps to oxygenate the blood.

Animal proteins and fats have a tendency to thicken the blood. Blood has to circulate all over the body through the arteries, blood vessels and tiny capillaries, and it's impossible for blood to circulate freely through these incredibly thin pipes when it's thickened with too much protein. However, the natural acids in ACV help keep the blood healthier and thinner. It's been reported that soaring blood pressure can be dramatically reduced by a 48-hour fasting program with only ACV, raw honey and water (five glasses a day plus additional water) being taken; a longer program, without the fasting, is said to work just as well.

ACV also prevents the growth of bacteria and mold. The acid content of ACV helps reduce the chance of bacterial or fungal growth on fresh foods. If you use conventionally grown produce, you can remove pesticide residues by spraying fruit and vegetables with ACV, then waiting five minutes and rinsing. Similarly, to eliminate bacteria from organic or conventional produce, spray it with ACV, wait five minutes and rinse. ACV can also be sprayed on seeds during the sprouting period to prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi: Simply place ACV in a mister bottle and spray your seeds thoroughly with ACV after each rinse with fresh water until the seeds are sprouted. You can rinse the ACV from the sprouts before serving if you dislike the taste!

ACV has been helpful as an aid for digestion, helping to break down minerals, protein and fats. It also inhibits the growth of unfriendly bacteria in the digestive tract. ACV has detoxifying properties, strengthens the immune system and may ameliorate viral, bacterial and fungal infections. It's used as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory medicine and has a natural antibiotic effect.

Its benefits also include alleviating respiratory infections and may reduce symptoms such as watery eyes and nasal discharge with complete relief of pollen, food and pet allergies. If you live in a highly polluted area where allergies and sinus infections are rampant, your system may better balance itself with a small dose of ACV each day. ACV has also been reported to cure sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue, Candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis and gout. Many find it to be a general energy tonic. It can be used to sooth sunburns and insect bites, to make your hair shine, and to treat dandruff. A wonderful side effect of drinking ACV every day is that it brings a healthy, rosy glow to one's complexion. This is great news if you suffer from a pale countenance. And, what's more – although no one is quite sure how – ACV also seems to break down fat and is widely reported to be a gradual, yet permanent and effective aid for losing weight.

Many commercial ACVs have been pasteurized, filtered, refined or distilled in order to make the product look good, and thereby be more appealing to the general public. Unfortunately, this extra processing destroys much of the healthy goodness of the product. The best type of ACV to use is one made from cold-pressed, organically grown whole apples, to which no chemicals or preservatives have been added, which contain the "mother of vinegar," and are not pasteurized. This "mother," as it is affectionately known, is a natural gelatinous substance formed during the final fermentation step. This type of especially wholesome ACV can be found readily in most health food stores and even in some general grocery stores.

The sour truth about apple cider vinegar - evaluation of therapeutic use
Nutrition Forum, Nov-Dec, 1997 by Beth Fontenot

Apple cider vinegar is an old folk remedy claimed to be beneficial in treating a long list of ailments. Proponents say that it can cure arthritis, guard against osteoporosis, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, prevent cancer, destroy infection, assist in digestion and weight control, maintain memory, and protect the mind from aging.

Vinegar is said to have been used for medical ailments for at least 10,000 years. The Babylonians first converted wine into vinegar in 5000 BCE using date palms, grapes, and figs, and believed vinegar had exceptional healing properties. Hippocrates is said to have used vinegar as an antibiotic. Samurai warriors supposedly used a vinegar tonic for strength and power. During the U.S. Civil War, soldiers used vinegar to prevent gastric upset and as a treatment for various ailments including pneumonia and scurvy. It was used to treat wounds during World War I.

The name vinegar comes from a French word meaning "sour wine." It is produced by the action of yeast and bacteria on grains or fruit juices. Vinegars take their name from the material used to make the vinegar, i.e., apple cider vinegar comes from apples, wine vinegar comes from grapes.


Apple cider vinegar is made by crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid. Sugar and yeast are added to the liquid to start the fermentation process, which turns the sugars into alcohol. In a second fermentation process, the alcohol is converted by acetic acid-forming bacteria into vinegar. Acetic acid gives vinegar its sour taste.

"Mother of vinegar" is a term used to refer to the mass of scum that forms on top of cider when alcohol turns into vinegar, or to the cloudy substance that sometimes develops in stored vinegar. It is actually bacteria and yeast cells that have died.

Folk Claims

In 1958 Dr. D. C. Jarvis, a "noted Vermont country doctor," wrote a book entitled Folk Medicine in which he extolled the virtues of vinegar. He claimed that Vermonters knew how to cure migraine headaches, diabetes, chronic fatigue, arthritis, and a variety of other ailments. They used apple cider vinegar.

Among Dr. Jarvis's many tenets about apple cider vinegar was his advice to pregnant women to drink an apple cider vinegar tonic daily to assure that the infant is born with "an excellent chemical pattern with which to meet its new environment." He recommended the same tonic for those suffering from arthritis. Believing that apple cider vinegar would destroy bacteria in the digestive tract, he advised those with GI problems to consume a tonic with each meal. He also declared that the regular consumption of an apple cider vinegar tonic would make body fat disappear because the vinegar would cause the fat to be burned instead of stored.

His book quickly sold 500,000 copies and is still in print. Apple cider vinegar is still promoted as one of the chief "natural" remedies for arthritis.

Those who believe that apple cider vinegar has miraculous properties attribute its powers to an abundance of nutrients in the liquid. One company's sales pitch states, "Each golden drop is a natural storehouse of vitamins and minerals." Marketers point to the trace minerals, bacteria,. and enzymes present in their product as the ingredients that give apple cider vinegar its curative characteristics. Another company suggests that their apple cider vinegar is superior because it contains pectin, beta-carotene, and potassium in addition to enzymes and amino acids. Apple cider vinegar is also said to contain an abundance of complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber. Dr. Jarvis believed that the healing properties of apple cider vinegar were due in large part to its rich potassium content.

Some New Twists

Apple cider vinegar is sold today by "health food" companies and others who claim it has remedial properties. The claims are similar to those in the past, but some have taken on a modem twist based on more recent medical research.

Marketers contend that the beta-carotene in apple cider vinegar destroys free radicals in the body which are involved in the aging and mutation of tissues and in destroying the immune system. Apple cider vinegar's beta-carotene is said to be in a "natural, easy to digest form."

Its use as a remedy for arthritis is based on the notion that acid crystals harden in the joints and tissues which cause the joints to become stiff and the tissues to harden. These acid crystals also cause the body to age prematurely, so the ads state. Apple cider vinegar is supposed is put these acid crystals in solution so they can be flushed from the body.

Producers also claim that apple cider vinegar can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. These assertions are based on the assumption that people naturally crave acids when eating animal proteins in order to lessen the thickening influence of "heavy proteins and fat." Apple cider vinegar supposedly thins the blood so it can circulate. more freely. Thick blood, they say, puts a strain on the heart and up goes the blood pressure. Another source states that the pectin present in apple cider vinegar works its way through the digestive system, binding to cholesterol and removing it from the body.

Hope this helps..
