Apple Cider Vinegar Info

Vinegar has been used by many cultures for centuries for a variety of reasons. Hippocrates is said to have used it for cleaning ulcers and sores, while Japanese Samurai consumed vinegar as a strengthening tonic.

It contains acetic acid, an antibacterial and antifungal chemical, which gives vinegar its sour smell. As well as acetic acid, there are many other bioactive compounds including antioxidants and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus which are required for many functions for optimal health and well-being.

With vinegar having high antioxidant activity, as well as antimicrobial properties, it means that as the body ages or deals with chronic inflammation, there is some support to counter the effects of these.

 

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apart from being a general well-being tonic and improving digestive health, Apple Cider Vinegar drink has had interesting results when studied for being of benefit for blood sugar dysregulation. The acetic acid can help the way the body converts sugar into a stored form (glycogen) within the muscles, as well as supporting insulin sensitivity and prompting cells to metabolize glucose.

It may also support blood sugar because it can help to slow down the way the stomach empties complex carbohydrates, therefore giving the body smaller amounts of sugar over a longer period of time for more stable blood glucose levels.

 

How to Take Apple Cider Vinegar

As well as taking Apple Cider Vinegar as a healthy drink mixed in a small amount of warm water, it can also be used in plenty of interesting ways:

  • Salad dressings
  • Household cleaner
  • Directly onto weeds as a weed killer
  • Flea deterrent on pets
  • Rinsed in the hair

  • Outstanding product & outstanding service

    star

    We have been using this product for about 3 years now, and it is by far the best apple cider on the market. So much so, that when we couldn't find it in any of our local health shops or supermarkets in Sydney, we went online to HealthPost and had it shipped from NZ.

    HealthPost service was amazing - half the stock we ordered was smashed in transit, and they very quickly replaced at no extra cost to us. I think we received the replacement order within 3-5 days of making the call to customer service. Thank you HealthPost - keep up the excellent customer service!

  • The Best Apple Cider I have tried

    star

    I read the reviews before I bought and thought it sounded good, it is! Easy to drink and not to bitter, I have been using for a couple of weeks now, every morning I have a tablespoon in cold water and gulp it down before I have anything else, since taking my skin has improved and having less breakouts, so the probiotic effect must be taking place on my gut. Highly recommend this product and I will be buying again.
