The wonders of apple cider vinegar



For years and years, people have been using apple cider vinegar for minor ailments, due to its amazing power to remedy many different health problems. Of course, there are some that don't agree with the use of apple cider vinegar and its ability to help with one's minor ailments, but my mother-in-law and my hubby swear by the stuff.

I've read books, health magazines, pamphlets from the health food store, and websites galore on apple cider vinegar. I take it every now and then when I feel a sore throat coming. Whenever hubby feels under the weather, he immediately takes a few tablespoons of cider vinegar in a glass of water, and drinks it.

Cider vinegar is reported to help with high blood pressure, sore throats, chronic fatigue, and even in weight loss. Do you use apple cider vinegar in your house? If you do, what do you use it for?

i've used the cider vinegar pills after every meal for losing the last pesky lbs i've been trying to get rid of. i didn't find they did much but a lot of people i've spoken to say that they use acv for a number of things, mostly sore throats.

I use it to make homemade salad dressings and in some of my cooking. Gotta run! It's Grey's Anatomy, CSI, CSI Miami and Ugly Betty night! LOLOLOLOL!

Does cider vinegar really work? I wonder if we can get it here in Japan? Is it like rice vinegar for sushi rice?

Anonymous, does cider vinegar really kill streptococci? Wow, I had no idea!

Pete, I think it's different from what you're talking about. Ask Yuka if they have it in Japan.

AHMM, cool! Can you e-mail me some of those salad dressing recipes? Yes, last night I watched those shows too. I was shocked when George proposed to Callie and Burke proposed to Cristina in Grey's Anatomy.

T, I have a fruend who took cider vinegar pills for that reason. She then started taking cider vinegar in her water after every meal instead and said it was more effective. Hmmm...I don't know. All I know is that for me, it wards off a sore throat.

i have taken the pills to lose weight and i think they actually worked! The reason is they make you go to the washroom a lot more often so you are losing water weight! The only thing is they smell really strong and are kind of chalky going down so you need to drink tonnes of water to take them (IMO)

Oh, that's so neat, Dina! Any specific brand?

Dina said...

Hello!
I have a problem with stomach acidity. My homeopath suggested that I dilute 1-2 tsp in water and drink it before I eat and it has helped.
