This book explores the many benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV). ACV has a multitude of benefits for health, beauty, cleaning, and first aid. ACV contains many essential vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients that help prevent disease and support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. In addition, by helping to boost your body’s metabolism, ACV helps burn fat faster and promotes weight loss. Apple cider vinegar is made from apple juice or cider, the alcoholic beverage made from fermented apple juice. It usually appears pale to medium amber in color. ACV is commonly used in salad dressings, vinaigrettes, marinades, and food preservatives. But did you know it also has countless benefits for body care, beauty, cleaning, and first aid? Apple cider vinegar contains many nutrients that your body needs: essential vitamins, minerals, organic acids, amino acids, and polyphenolic compounds (micronutrients that help prevent diseases). ACV also contains pectin, which is an insoluble fiber that can be found in fruits and plants. Pectin is rich in fiber, so your body can benefit greatly from consistently including ACV in your daily regimen. It is a good prebiotic, which supports the growth of probiotic bacteria and promotes a healthy gut.
