Does apple cider vinegar have any real health benefits?
Apple cider vinegar I am a very big advocate of apple cider vinegar! There is so much out there about the uses of organic apple cider vinegar, and with me being a person who is green friendly I use as many products as I can to promote healthy living. Also it helps to flush toxins and makes your skin beautiful by removing the dark circles from under the eyes. Just be careful not to take it straight from the bottle! Dilute it or else it could burn your stomach like taco bell at three am can. They make tablets that you can take but some people find them difficult to swallow. ACV can be found in tablet form in the vitamin section of most pharmacies or health food shops, and some department stores (possibly Wal*Mart, Costco, etc). In researching for a kidney stone treatment, I found that Calcium Oxalate crystals (one form of kidney stone) caused by unhealthy diet change: too much fluoride (brushing teeth with tooth paste every hour or so after each snak), too many peanuts, and too much chocolate--could be dissolved naturally by a number of treatment methods including ACV, lemon juice & olive oil, banaba leaf extract, eating pickles, alfalfa with lime juice, and more. CT scans showed a 2 cm stone in each kidney. Gas in gastrointestinal tract put pressure all through the abdomen that caused kidney tissues to be compressed against both stones causing huge pain / damage. Hospital doctors gave two prescriptions--one for pain, and another for widening the urinary flow pathway. Pharmacist said they would fill my prescriptions right away, but instead took about 45 minutes chatting with one particular "potential customer," all the while kidney stone pain returned with a vengeance. Pharmacist did not know of anything to take for kidney stones, but had heard that some people tried some risky substances and got no better. Both the hospital doctors and the pharmacist recommended just drinking a lot of water, and letting the stones painfully pass out during urination. After getting on the internet, the answers came quickly--first a whole bunch of web sites trying to sell a book about the topic, then later a web blog site where people pooled their experiences with treatments... Using a lot of lemon juice, olive oil, ACV tablets, eating pickles, and a day or so later, voila, no stones at all, no pain, and only minute chunk of one of the stones passed through the bladder into a fine meshed strainer given by the doctor at the hospital. The strainer was supposed to filter out the stone material, and this could then be analyzed by a lab to determine the exact cause of the stones. However, recent unhealthy diet change indicated that it was the cause--no need to get an analysis done. While some people like an alkali diet, this resulted with poor amounts of stomach acid (stomach upset due to gas), and not digesting food properly, and also forming kidney stones. This illustrates the need to strike a proper balance in diet with the kinds of food / drink that are needed. I am taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar everyday in the morning in liquid form. This liquid has been professed to increase metabolism, decrease water retention, suppress the appetite, lower blood pressure and control cholesterol levels. There have been several studies done regarding weight loss and they all seem to agree that apple cider vinegar is an effective aid for weight loss. It is quite rich in minerals, vitamins and enzymes. I just read that taking it in liquid form may damage tooth enamel so I will probably purchase some pills for the future. I figure I need all the help I can get, so as long as it is OK with my doctor I may as well utilize it.

Apple cider vinegar is beneficial for the body. It is high in potassium which is good for energy, it breaks down fats and it is very good for irregular bowel movements.
Apple cider vinegar is made from apples. The whole apples are pressed to extract the juices which are then allowed to ferment. The fermenting process turns the cider int…o 'hard cider' which contains alcohol. The natural process continues and the 'hard cider' becomes vinegar through the action of acetic bacteria ('good' bacteria), that turn the alcohol into acetic acid.

Answer . Most likely in trace amounts, yes. To make apple cider vinegar, you start with apple juice. Yeast is added to the juice, which transforms the sugars in the …juice to alcohol. During this time, care is taken to ensure that no oxygen is able to get to the "must".If it is allowed to completely ferment, nearly all (but unlikely completely all) off the sugarsa will be gone from the juice. At this point you have "Hard" cider (or just cider if you live outside the USA). At this point, the airlocks are removed and a bacteria is introduced (or allowed to self-introduce) to the cider. This bacteria turns the alcohol into acedic acid- which is the stuff that gives vinegar its strong taste and smell. It is unlikely that there would be a complete transformation of all the alcohol, so yes there is most likely alcohol in the vinegar. However, it is in amounts so small as to be nearly impossible to detect.

No, you wouldn't end up with the same taste at all. How about applesauce, or do you have another fruit juice in your pantry?
well..If you go to a store and get some ACV in most cases it will just be vinegar with some color. You get organic, you can get a better quality. Buy it raw, and you have a pr…oduct with the "mother". well if you knew what was good for you you would shout your trap-
Cider is for drinking, vinegar is for cooking and pickling.

Yes, apple cider vinegar is an acid. Shall I hence the word "vinegar." Apple cider vinegar has vinegar in it which means its automatically an acid.
Research at Brewing Research Internation has shown that cider furnishes antioxidents similar to thos found in red wine. Research at the University of Gl…asgow show that cider apples have a high amount of phenolics, an antioxident linked to protection from stoke, heart disease, and cancer. Further reseach should determine if this remains in the cider.
