Apple cider vinegar is noted to help in many health benefits, for obvious reasons I can only write about a few.  The following information is taken from a small booklet I have that the cover is ripped off and none of the pages have an indication of what the book is called. I have a feeling the book is from Braggs but I couldn’t confirm the source.  I have used this booklet for years

1)      Total body detox; removing toxins and inflammation from the body.   Two tables spoons of organic apple cider vinegar and six ounces of tomato juice, one to three times a day, between meals.  I would add natural mineral salts in it as well.

2)      Skin care; warm water and a half cup of cider vinegar, rub mixture over the skin.  Do not wash it off and repeat weekly.

3)      Heart care; two or three drops in a half a glass of water, three times daily.

4)      Enlarged prostate gland; whip one tablespoon of cider vinegar with two tablespoons of pure olive oil, add a dash of cinnamon, pour on fresh tomatoes and eat, daily.

5)      Arthritis; first thing in the morning, six ounces of tomato juice and a teaspoon of cider vinegar, drink.  Then eat an apple.  Add organic apple cider vinegar to your raw salads.  Many of my patients have had relief from arthritis, by drinking 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar in water, two or three times a day.

6)      Constipation; two tablespoons of flaxseed in boiling water for fifteen minutes, strain and add one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar.

There are many other uses for organic apple cider vinegar, do some research.

One thing I am sure of is organic apple cider vinegar doesn’t come with a long list of adverse side effects.
