Let’s talk about Vinegar!
I’ve spoken before about how Vinegar can be “unhealthy”, but my reference being towards “white distilled” and to wine vinegars, in which the destructive nature comes from ACETIC ACID, which both distilled and wine vinegars have.
PURE ACV (apple cider vinegar), on the other hand, made from whole apples and NOT diluted, contains the constructive MALIC ACID, which benefits the digestive system, and can be constructive in softening kidney/gall stones.
Chemistry of Malic Acid has 4 Carbon bonds, 6 Hydrogen bonds, and 5 Oxygen bonds!
White Distilled Vinegar rapidly destroys red blood corpuscles which contributes to anemia. It also interferes with the digestive processes. Healthy Red Corpuscles vs. damaged!
Distilled Vinegar is the product of fermentation by acidity of alcoholic fluids like fermented wine and malt liquors; these are known as wine vinegars and malt vinegars. The white distilled which carries a high acetic acid content is used a lot in our Country. The only thing I find it good for is using as a cleaning agent for the home.
But vinegar made from apples (ACV) contains MALIC ACID which is a natural element involved in the digestive process.
Vinegars made by fermentation of wine contains an average of from 3% to 9% Acetic Acid, and usually some Tartaric Acid too. Acetic acid has been connected to contribute in hardening of the liver (cirrhosis) and duodenal and intestinal ulcers.
Here’s the comparison between a Health, fatty & a Liver with Cirrhosis!
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, on the other hand, contains Malic Acid, which is a constructive acid that combines with alkaline elements and minerals in the body to produce energy or to be stored in the system as glycogen for future use.
It helps in the coagulation of blood in establishing a normal menstrual flow, and contributes to healthy blood vessels, veins and arteries, and the building of red blood.
One of the great virtues of ACV is its extraordinary potassium content, a must have for building and storing body reserves which contributes toward achieving harmony and calm. This potassium readily associates with some of the most important elements in the body, like calcium, sodium, iron, magnesium, chlorine, and silicon.
Its important, when choosing ACV, to consider the source, making sure its made from whole apples and not the cheap stuff made just from apple cores and peelings. Whole Raw apple cider vinegar with the “mother” which should look cloudy in appearance and a nice dark amber color. Will also have sediment and stuff floating in the bottom of the bottle! Also, never buy it in plastic containers, always choose one that is in a glass container.
Everyone should have a bottle of this stuff at home, its indispensable. It carries antiseptic qualities, works great as a skin toner, diluted with water and applied with a cotton ball directly to the skin.
Years ago in Scotland it was used and maybe it still is common practice to shrink varicose and “bulging” veins by the application of ACV on the skin to the whole length of the veins, morning and night, for a month or so, and at the same time drinking daily; two or three glasses of water with 2 teaspoons of ACV in each glass. And it worked!
Your LIFE is manifested in the condition of your blood which is generated in the marrow of your bones, activated through your spleen and circulated through your blood vessels. It is a natural, systematic process that causes the blood stream to be completely recreated every period of 28 days, and unless the balance is maintained between the creation of new blood cells while the old blood cells complete their cycle, health cant be maintained.
Excessive bleeding with menstrual cycles, bleeding hemorrhoids, nose bleeds, cuts, etc., can also show signs of improvement by drinking 2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water daily and two or three times a day if necessary!
When our digestive system fails to digest proteins, it is a result of being deficient in hydrochloric acid. This can, as a result, give rise to high blood pressure. So consequentially one to three teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water, taken in the middle of the meal can improve protein digestion and assist in balancing blood pressure.
