Hi to Three to Five Tribe! I have been drinking Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for almost five years now and have always heard people rave about Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, but have never tried it myself. For years, Trader Joe’s ACV has been my jam (b*tch on a budget) until recently when I finally decided to upgrade my ACV and dish out a few extra dollars to give Bragg’s a try and let me tell you, it has been life changing!
Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar has a high level of acidity, which touts a host of health benefits including:
- Increased stomach acid and bile production, which can help with digestion
- Eliminates gas, bloating and constipation
- Supports weight loss
- Helps to balance pH levels
- Reduces blood sugar levels
- ACV can even be used externally to wash your hair and even whiten teeth
Although all selections of ACV embody the same health benefits, Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar stands out above the rest for one reason. It contains the “Mother.”
The “Mother” are strands of proteins, enzymes and friendly gut bacteria that are created through the fermentation process. Fermentation changes the pH levels of apple cider thereby transforming it into ACV. When you ferment apple cider, the sugars are magically turned into organic acids, which create incredible enzymes and probiotics, which aid in healthy digestion. (Take it from someone who has constantly been on a quest for healthy digestion, Bragg’s is the Mother of all apple cider vinegars and does wonders for digestion).
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV can be enjoyed on its on, but there are other ways you can incorporate it into your daily diet. I like to drink my ACV in one of my morning elixirs: (1) teaspoon of ACV + 1/3 a cup of warm water + (1) teaspoon of Manuka Honey, but you can also pour it over fresh farmers market vegetables or use it in homemade salad dressings.
Whether you already enjoy a daily dose of ACV or are considering adding it to your health and wellness routine, I highly recommend purchasing Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
Enjoying ACV every day,
