How to choose the best Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is known to help with many health ailments and conditions.

Most people use it for weight loss and digestion. In addition to helping with both of these conditions, Apple Cider Vinegar also helps with inflammation and regulates blood sugar levels.

Anyone who has ever taken Apple Cider Vinegar will also tell you how difficult it is to take it. Here is the thing though, you don't have to take it on its own, you can use it as a salad dressing or add it to cooking. Taking it directly is just one way of doing it. I know there are many people who have gotten tired of taking the liquid and are now moved on to Apple Cider Gummies. How do I feel about that? Hmm, well the gummies do make interesting claims, I do like the ingredient list on the SUKU Appley Ever After Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies which has the 'Mother' plus it is sugar-free! Overall I was to take Apple Cider Vinegar in pill form I would take it in capsule form, one reason being that

the gummies taste too good and I may not be able to stop at just one!

Here are 3 things you want to look for when choosing the right type of Apple Cider Vinegar:

  1. You want to make sure it is in a glass bottle. Apple Cider Vinegar naturally contains Acetic Acid which may cause plastic bottles to break down. Why take that chance? Buy it in a glass bottle for better quality and storage.

  2. Make sure the Apple Cider Vinegar has the "Mother" in it. The "Mother" refers to the floaties on the bottom of the bottle. These "floaties" contain the key nutrients to help support the health and wellness goals that you are trying to achieve. If it doesn't have the "Mother" then it should be unfiltered and unpasteurized, this should be mentioned on the label upfront.

  3. Lastly, the Apple Cider Vinegar should be Organic. Since Apple Cider Vinegar is made from apples and apples are part of the dirty dozen. This means they are regularly sprayed with pesticides, and even after you wash and clean them they still have some residual pesticides on them. Apples should be that one fruit that you always buy organic and it is no different from buying Apple Cider Vinegar. You want your Apple Cider Vinegar to be free of any pesticides and contaminants.

So what is the best way to take liquid Apple Cider Vinegar?

There are many ways to enjoy Apple Cider Vinegar and the most common way is simply adding a tablespoon full to your water.

Some other ways you can enjoy apple cider vinegar are:

  1. Adding it to hot water along with honey and cinnamon

  2. Using it as a salad dressing

  3. Cook with it

  4. Make a spritzer by adding it to the seltzer

  5. Mixing it in cold water and some Himalayan Pink Salt

The best thing about apple cider vinegar is that it can be enjoyed in various ways and at any time of the day or night.
