For apple cider vinegar to be really beneficial it is essential that it is organic, unfiltered and the apples used, fully ripened. If the ACV is distilled, enzymes are destroyed as is the potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulfur, iron, copper, silicon, trace minerals, and essential amino acids. Distilling also destroys natural acids that fight body toxins and inhibit unfriendly bacteria.
The fact that ACV is so potassium rich is incredible as this one chemical is responsible for preventing hair loss, brittle teeth and nails, sinusitis, runny noses and toxic waste in the body, for openers.
The reality is that most people are potassium deficient and this is reflected throughout their entire bodies. Factually, ACV let’s you look younger as you get older.
Interestingly enough, with ACV being sulfur based, many illnesses associated with a potassium deficiency can be eliminated with a daily regimen of ACV or organic sulfur crystal ingestion.
Some of those illnesses are autistic symptoms, arthritis pain, kidney stones, atrial fibrillation, adrenal insufficiency, celiac disease, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, ulcerative colitis, hypothyroidism, irritable bowl syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, atherosclerosis, diabetes and stroke.
So how would one know that they are potassium deficient?
If you experience bone and muscle aches, if you get shooting pains or feel dizzy when straightening up after bending over, experiencing morning dull headaches when you wake up, dull looking hair, dandruff or itchy scalp, itchy, bloodshot or watery eyes, loss of mental alertness, failing memory, easily irritable or impatient, or if your hands and feet are cold in warm weather, you are potassium deficient.
One of the incredible things about ACV is that it detoxifies not only the bloodstream but the various organs of the body as well. It also will break down mucus and phlegm, prevent your urine from becoming too alkaline, and promote healthy blood flow to the heart and brain.
Today, what you find in supermarkets is vinegar made from coal tar and not fully ripened apples. If you think that ACV is harmful to the body you are mistaken It’s the distilled, pasteurized, filtered, synthetic, and dead vinegars that must be avoided.
Bear in mind though that ACV is in itself not the panacea for optimum health but a necessary tool that goes along with a clean, synthetic chemical and processed free diet along with ample hydration of non-fluoridated water, and avoidance of sodas, and sugar rich sports drinks.
Also keep in mind that if you are ingesting anything that had a face or a mother that is allegedly “range free”, you are still eating GMOs due to the fact that this is what’s fed to the animals. As far as fish goes, mercury anyone?
So, here’s a simple recipe: 3 – 5 tablespoons of organic, unrefined ACV, like Bragg’s, 4 – 5 drops of stevia or a bit of honey in 16 ounces of water. In time you will feel the difference.
Oh yeah, you can only get this ACV in natural food stores. After I make it, I stick it in the fridge to get it colder and usually drink 2 -3 a day.
