Apple cider vinegar is a completely natural product, resulting from the fermentation of apple juice to hard apple cider followed by a second fermentation to apple cider vinegar.As a result it  retains all the nutritional goodness of the apples from which it was made plus it is fortified with the  acids and enzymes produced during the two fermentation steps.It’s the sum of all these ingredients that give apple cider vinegar its amazing health benefits.

  5. I love my apple cider vinegar! I drink it every day. It’s helped my heartburn and I think it’s helping my arthritis as well. In addition to adding to salad dressings and soups, try adding to your fruit and protein smoothie. It really brings out the brightness of the fruit. Yum!
