Apple cider is well-known and used for a few thousand years now, but it was discovered by accident.
It was thanks to Babylonians who, during the production of date wine, received a clear liquid, which greatly preserved hunted animals. Hippocrates was recommending apple cider to his patients with any kind of respiratory tract problems. The Roman legionaries drank a mixture of apple cider and water, every day, for disinfecting purposes; after drinking such mixture, they didn’t have the need to drink water. Similarly, in the Bible, when crucified, Christ was given a sponge soaked in an apple cider to quench the thirst.

How is apple cider made?
It is created by the process of fermentation where the natural sugars are decomposed by bacteria and yeast. It is a two-step process. First, the sugars are changed into alcohol, then in the further steps, the vinegar is created. Apple vinegar contains many valuable nutrients, acids, and enzymes. Pectins, contained in the apple vinegar, support the digestive system. Bioflavonoids create an anti-cancer barrier. Apple cider is rich in mineral compounds and elements such as: Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Fluorine, Copper, Magnesium, Sodium, Silicon, Sulfur, and vitamins: A, B1, B2, B6, C, and E.
For therapeutic purposes, use only apple vinegar, never the regular clear vinegar.
The regular vinegar destroys the red blood cells, causes anemia, and disturbs the natural process of digesting the food. It may cause cirrhosis or ulcerative colitis. It’s a different story with apple vinegar. It improves the overall condition of blood vessels, promotes the reconstruction of red blood cells, and supports the digestion.
Currently, it is important to keep a specific acidity of a stomach (between pH 1 and pH 2.5). It is very wrong to reach for heartburn medications whenever you feel unpleasant burn or burping. Taking such medications causes your stomach acid to be neutralized (becomes water). Neutralization of stomach acid causes many alignments such as depression, insomnia, strong cough, asthma, skin and food allergies, heart attack, headaches, anemia. The stomach works properly only when it has an appropriate pH (Between 1-2.5). Otherwise, it can’t metabolize the protein from the meat or the vegetables. Undigested proteins begin to rot. Once they get into the blood system, they are mistaken for aggressors by the immunological system.
It is worth considering apple vinegar therapy for the proper functioning and digestion of the stomach. The mixture should be prepared from 2 spoons of apple vinegar and a ¼ glass of water, mixed, and consumed 15 mins before the meal.
How to purchase a good quality apple vinegar?
The best solution is to, of course, make your own apple vinegar at home. However, there are many good options on the market. It would be best if it is ecological and organic, made from organic, non-GMO, and ecological (pesticide-free) apples. Additionally, it shouldn’t contain water, preservatives, or synthetic dyes. It shouldn’t be pasteurized and sold in dark bottles.
