Apple cider vinegar is one of those incredible "do-all" substances that is as comfortable in the medicine cabinet as it is in the garden shed. So what’s dirty about that? You see, the natural fermentation of ACV has been done for hundreds, if not thousands, of years by numerous cultures.

Crushed raw apples are placed in large wooden barrels and allowed to ferment naturally over time. The resulting liquid is neither clear nor "perfect" looking. In fact, natural ACV should be brownish in color and contain what is known as the "mother."



The cloudy and somewhat cobweb-like structure that you may see in raw apple cider vinegar is endearingly referred to as the mother, because of its life-giving properties. As the vinegar ages, the mother becomes more pronounced, and if you hold the vinegar bottle to the light you can almost always see the makings of the mother - usually suspended close to the bottom of the jar. In the mother are valuable nutrients and beneficial bacteria that make unprocessed apple cider vinegar so special.



DON'T BUY CLEAR VINEGAR: Most vinegar is processed before it hits the shelves, to get rid of the mother of vinegar. This destroys all the nutrients that the vinegar offers.

Is your blood sugar out of whack?Here is what researchers are discovering about the inherently therapeutic value of apple cider vinegar:

Arizona State University doctors Carol S. Johnston and Andrea M. White surveyed 11 people afflicted with type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that taking two tablespoons ofapple cider vinegar right before bed lowered the blood sugar levels of these individuals by 4 to 6 percent by morning.1

There’s more...

Another study led by Dr. Johnston gave subjects, some with insulin resistance and some without, 20 grams of apple cider vinegar and 40 grams of water. Results showed that the after-meal blood sugar levels of the subjects with insulin resistance was34 percent lower when they drank apple cider vinegar.2

And more...

Research performed at Tokyo University in Tokyo, Japan, discovered that the acetic acid found in vinegars inhibits the activity of carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, including sucrase, mastase, lactase and amalase.This inhibition results in select sugars and starches passing through the digestive system without being digested, having less impact on blood sugar levels.3

The Amazing Benefits of
Apple Cider Vinegar Don't Stop There...

ACV has been know to aid with dry skin: Equal parts of apple cider vinegar and Aztec Secret Indian Clay will help todetoxify and clean out your pores.

DID YOU KNOW:An estimated 585,720 people will die from cancer in 2014, according to an American Cancer Society Report.Nearly a third of these deaths will be due to tobacco use alone. An additional third of cancer deaths will be caused by obesity and being overweight, lack of physical activity and poor diet, the organization says.4

Apple cider vinegar may kill cancer cells or retard their growth. According to one study, consuming organic apple cider vinegar also decreased the risk of esophageal cancer.5In clinical trials, pectin, contained in apple cider vinegar, has been shown to slow the growth of cancerous cells within the prostate. Apple cider vinegar cleanses the colon, which also supports a healthy prostate.6



Jake’s Famous Steamed Shrimp with Apple Cider Vinegar

Living near the Atlantic Ocean, I am very fortuntate to have access to fresh, non-toxic, wild-caught shrimp. Not only are shrimp great sources of high quality lean protein, but they are also loaded with zinc and vitmain B12. This is my very favorite shrimp recipe which has it's roots in the Chespeake Bay region.

The ACV in this recipe not only gives the shrimp a delicious flavor, it also helps loosen the meat from the shells, making them quite easy and fun to peel. Make sure you get shell-on shrimp, as the flavor will be even better as the juice sits between the shell and the meat without overcooking, making tiny marinade pockets.

• ½ cup apple cider vinegar
• 2 cans of gluten-free beer
• 1 pound of fresh-caught shrimp, whole
• 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
• Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
• 1 tablespoon grass fed butter

Place everything but the shrimp in the stock pot
Add the shrimp when the liquid begins to boil
After about 4-5 minutes, when all the shrimp are pink, turn the burner off
Drain the shrimp and enjoy!



Look around you:

     there is always something to be thankful for !
