Do you use apple cider vinegar?
I’m not talking about the sterile, crystal-clear stuff. Look for words like organic, unfiltered, and unprocessed. As with all foods, the less processed it is, the better.
We want the cloudy kind of apple cider vinegar that contains the “mother,” which is similar to sourdough starter. This web-like substance is full of probiotic microbes that benefit the gut biome.
It is mainly that aspect that interests me, because I believe Micronized Purple Rice is good for our gut biome, so anything else that also benefits our helpful gut microbes has my full attention.
Having a healthy gut biome is crucial to good health and anti-aging. This is one reason to avoid antibiotics whenever possible, because they kill off good bacteria as well as bad.
Although the health benefits of apple cider vinegar have been known for hundreds or even thousands of years, it has only been in recent years that scientific research is starting to prove its value when it comes to health.
Don’t ever drink apple cider vinegar full-strength, because the acetic acid in it can be hard on tooth enamel and esophageal and mouth tissues, and can cause upset stomach.
The best way is to put a teaspoon up to a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar in a glass of pure water, and drink it before meals.
Here are five ways this natural powerhouse can be helpful to your health:
1. Improved insulin sensitivity
Research shows that apple cider vinegar benefits people with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes.
A 2004 study from the American Diabetes Foundation shows that drinking a little apple cider vinegar with water before meals increases insulin sensitivity and decreases glucose spikes after meals.
The results showed that apple cider vinegar helped people with pre-diabetes almost twice as much as it helped people with diabetes.
2. Weight loss
A related study also showed that apple cider vinegar helped people lose weight.
Of course, it makes sense that if you stabilize blood glucose, that’s going to help with weight loss.
The people in the study only lost about half a pound per week, but that adds up! They drank two tablespoons of vinegar in a glass of water before two of their daily meals.
3. Heart health
There is not a whole lot of research on how apple cider vinegar helps with cardiovascular health, but one 2006 study showed that it lowered cholesterol and blood pressure in rats.
More research needs to be done on this, but it is an intriguing possibility.
Of course, many people have had good results with lowered cholesterol and blood pressure with help from Micronized Purple Rice. I am one of them — my cholesterol dropped 73 points in the first month!
4. Improved absorption of minerals
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar has been shown to increase absorption of minerals.
So there’s a good chance that you’ll benefit even more from eating green leafy vegetables such as kale if you drink some apple cider vinegar with water beforehand.
5. Possible cancer prevention
The jury is still out on cancer prevention, but some research shows it may be a possibility. Some studies have shown it might be able to kill cancer cells or prevent their growth.
One study showed a possible decreased risk of esophageal cancer, but another study showed a possible increased risk for bladder cancer.
So, more research needs to be done, but again, it’s an intriguing possibility.
It’s great for sore throats-gargle with 1 teaspoon & 1 cup warm water !
I use apple cider vinegar tablets. I take 2 about 15 to 20 minutes before meals with water. That way it works without having to taste vinegar. I’m less hungry through out the day. I have no weight results yet since I just started this to see if my blood pressure would go down. It does for a while. The blood pressure should come down with weight loss.
I cook with it I gargle with it when a sore throat occurs
Yes could you tell me if there is anything u can take for tintinuitis
Ty for info
I had Heart burn really bad. I started drinking the apple cider vinegar and it stop right away, and I have not had problems with heart burn since.
I put a tablespoon of ACV and honey in warm water with a bit of grated ginger.
I like to drink apple cider vinegar in a hot drink with lemon and honey. Do you still get these benefits when the cider is heated up like that?
I sometimes add a little Stevia to that concoction and sip on it when my sweet tooth acts up…it’s very satisfying.
RECENTLY I HAD THE WORST SORE THROAT IN YEARS AND A FRIEND SUGGESTED THAT I SIP ON APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. I DID IT AND THE PAIN EASED QUICKLY. THE NEXT DAY MY THROAT WAS HEALED. PROBABLY ONLY USED 1-2 TEASPOONS.
I once tried Apple Cider Vinegar..with a spoonful of honey in a glass of hot water. I spent the morning with a stomach ache…and the afternoon in the powder room! Terrible diarrhea! Since then I’ve been afraid to try it! But perhaps it’s worth trying again with a teaspoon in hotwater …and the honey just to help! The acidity is amazingly strong…and I think use a straw to help save the teeth…and make sure to clean them after! ( To re mineralize teeth , use Xylatol , so I’m told!)
I use it with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1/4 teaspoon of grond cinnamon which both have antibiotic properties of its own, they make me feel more energized and my digestion of food is better, so is my skin! I have dry peeling itchy dermatitis and my itching and dryness is looking and feeling better!
My grandmother used apple cider vinegar in water & lived to be 94 with no heart problems or diabetes. I guess I should start following her example. Have wanted to try your product but keep waiting till I have extra cash. Hopefully, this summer.
If I mixed mine with too much vinegar … Could it cause a yeast infection under my breast ?
Thanks for the information, I have diabetes (type2) had 4 heart bypasses, high chlosteral, high blood pressure and could lose about 20 lbs. I’m definitely will try this. Thanks again,
Kare, my daughter actually got rid of a staph infection that my granddaughter had! She just applied it to her skin! No Joke! She uses it medicinally for a lot of things! I’m a believer!
Where can I find the unfiltered, unprocessed, organic apple cider vinegar?!
My daughter buys it at Wal- Mart, Kroger also has it.
I just started using organic apple cider vinegar for treatment of acid reflux. I had been on Prilosec for a long time & wanted to get off. It’s working great for this.
Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother is also good for your skin.
My daughter to;d me about naural unfiltered vinager. my sugar levels continue to come down. I have lost 15 lbs. Andd have begun to take less medications.

So I’m confused…… I do use Braggs ACV regularly, but what is the difference with the purple rice product you are talking about. Are the one of the same or different. Help ! Thanks.
When starting to take ACV, should it be taken at night or in the morning?
