Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the natural sugars found in fresh apples. Producers extract the juice and add yeast, which ferments and turn into alcohol. They add bacteria for a second fermentation, turning it into acetic acid; the active ingredient in vinegar.  There are two different types of apple cider vinegar, one is filtered – this looks a little lighter and doesn’t tend to contain any bits. The unfiltered version looks a lot darker and happens to have bits floating it in. These (bits) floating in the ACV contain strands of proteins, enzymes and probiotic bacteria called the ‘mother’; a substance that is said to have many health benefits, such as helping to:

 

Regulate Blood Sugar

Aid Weight Loss

Reduce Cholesterol

Improve Gut Health

Aid Digestion

Improve Heart Health

 

ACV can be consumed in different ways, combine with olive oil lemon juice and herbs and add to salads for a healthy meal or simply  add 2 tea spoons of ACV to a large glass of water for a gut friendly refreshing drink.*

 

*Please note: On its own, ACV acidic nature means it can be harsh on your throat and damage your teeth.
