Apple cider vinegar is so good for you, and has so many health benefits (read more about the benefits of apple cider vinegar) that I recommend everyone incorporate it into their daily routine. It's one of the quickest, simplest things you can do, but the results can be tremendous. There are entire books written on the benefits of ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar), it seems to help with nearly everything that ails us human beings. But if, like me, you don't particularly like the smell and/or taste of vinegar, or you want something that even kids will like, try this ACV tonic.
The cider vinegar makes the apple juice just slightly more tart, it's barely noticeable. I've got a very acute sense of smell, I hate the smell of vinegar and I didn't even detect it.
Freshly squeezed organic apple juice is the best, of course. But if you don't have access to a juicer, or fresh juice, be sure to get organic, unfiltered (that means it will be cloudy, not clear), unsweetened apple juice. For the apple cider vinegar, it's very important that it be raw, unfiltered, and organic, like Bragg's apple cider vinegar. Don't buy the cheap stuff, you won't get the same health benefits! It's not hard to make your own homemade apple cider vinegar either.
1 cup organic, unfiltered apple juice (preferably freshly squeezed, or at least unsweetened)
1 teaspoon raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar. We recommend you make your own or buy Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar
Serve over ice, or not as you prefer. 1-3 cups per day.
To your health!
Know that APV mixed with Apple Juice if very good for you but have read that you should not take if you are Blood Pressure meds. Take both a homeopathy meds for Blood Pressure and Cholesterol, can I still do the drink. My Doctor dose not approve of the homeopathy meds but as my pressure and cholesterol are good, he keeps quite.
You input would be helpful.
Thanks for you time.
Sorry Nancy, I have no medical qualification so I can’t advise you on that.
What is the difernce between ACV and the viniger we use when we are eating french fries
You use malt vinegar on french fries. It doesn’t have all the wonderful medicinal and health benefits that apple cider vinegar has.
Apple cider vinegar and apple tonic are the same?
No Estrella, they are different. The tonic has apple cider vinegar in it though.
Hi Estrella, they are not the same, but the apple tonic contains apple cider vinegar. The tonic is a nice way to drink apple cider vinegar by mixing it with other things, but apple cider vinegar is the full strength vinegar and you wouldn’t want to drink it straight.
Will this tonic help with my gout?
I’m not a medical professional, so I can’t make any claims as to whether it will or not. You should probably ask a naturopath or alternative health care provider.
I have been having hormones imbalances and hot flushes creating fatigue and vagueness. An iridologist recommended 15ml of apple cider vinegar mixed in with roughly 150ml of pure apple juice daily. I no longer have any of the above, have loads of energy and most importantly I have my clear thinking back. She explained that this helps to regulate hormone imbalance in both men and women, which in turn is the cause of many symptoms. My husband is also taking it daily and he also has loads more energy and is more evenly tempered.

We understand that apple cider vinegar can help with weight loss. They mostly mix it with water. Can it be mixed with apple juice or apple cider and have the same effect?
I’m not sure ET. With both of those there are natural sugars in the apple juice and cider. So I’m not sure how it would change the alkalinizing and detoxifying effect of the apple cider vinegar. I would suggest trying Peter’s suggestion above of adding ginger and stevia. Stevia will sweeten the taste without adding sugar/calories. In some cases though the natural sour or bitter flavors of some foods will trigger different enzyme production and other reactions in the body that have a beneficial effect.
