Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar “With Mother”

By vicmariki

Apple cider vinegar with mother(ACV) is an organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar containing "mother," strands of proteins, friendly bacteria, and enzymes that give the product a cobweb-like, murky look. Before I get started let me emphasize that in order to get the benefits of ACV you need to use raw organic ACV (Like Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar) that promote healing.  Clear vinegar is processed and doesn't have any of the benefits of raw ACV.

6 benefits of Apple cider vinegar with mother

Looking at the benefits, I am going to focus on two areas that ACV is most beneficial, which are Beauty and health.

 Let's start with Beauty!

1. Teeth whitener

The vinegar helps remove stains, whiten teeth, and kill bacteria in your mouth and gums. Brush as usual after you gargle with apple cider vinegar in the morning.  

2. Sunburn remedy

Eases the pain of a sunburn and minimize peeling by applying a wash cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar.

3. Natural body deodorant

Since sweat is one of your body's natural means of detoxification and most sold deodorants are antiperspirants, blocking your ability to sweat can block your ability to detoxify. ACV absorbs and neutralizes odors.

Let's now turn to Health benefits...

4 Lower blood cholesterol

Research has indicated that apple cider vinegar improves the lipid profile of blood by decreasing the levels of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) or bad cholesterol, as well as increasing the levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) or good cholesterol.

5. Control blood sugars

The anti-glycemic effects of apple cider vinegar help to improve insulin sensitivity, which is essential to maintain the sugar levels of blood.

6. Fruit and Veggie Wash

Vinegar is one of the best natural agents for removing certain pesticides and bacteria from your fresh produce. 

Here is a Fruit and Veggie Wash recipe using Apple cider vinegar with mother...

✓ Using a solution of 10 percent vinegar to 90 percent water as a bath to briefly soak produce.

✓ Just place your veggies or fruit in the solution, swish them around, and rinse thoroughly

Note; Don't use this process on fragile fruits like berries since they could be damaged in the process or soak up too much vinegar through their porous skins.

Apple cider vinegar with mother taken in little quantities should not offer many risks, but taking in larger amounts on a regular basis could prove problematic due to its high acidic State. Problems ranging from harm to the teeth to lower potassium levels, lower bone density, and interaction with some medications could result.
