Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar and honey are two remarkable foods that work together and alone to cure many ailments.

What is apple cider vinegar? Apple cider vinegar results from the fermentation of pulverized apples. Yeast is first added to the apples causing fermentation and resulting in alcohol. Then acetic-acid forming bacteria are added for a second fermentation resulting in vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is often sold in a raw, unfiltered state with the "mother of vinegar" present. This may give it a stringy appearance. Hippocrates himself is said to have used apple cider vinegar for its health benefits.
Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is probably the most popular brand of RAW, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It is my definitely my preferred brand, for sure. It is very important that the apple cider vinegar be raw, as that provides maximum health benefits.

Of course, if you just can't stomach the thought of drinking apple cider vinegar, you can also buy Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets.

What is honey? Of course, everyone knows that bees make honey, but did you know that honey bees use a process called regurgitation (yes, that is what you think it is) to create this sweet food from nectar? The bees make the honey for themselves and store it inside their honeycombs. Don't worry; however, modern beekeeping practices encourage the overproduction of honey, so we humans can enjoy this sweet food without endangering the bees. 

Honey is composed of fructose and sucrose and has the same relative sweetness as sugar. It is rich in B1, B2, C, B6, B5, B3 and small quantities of copper, iodine, and zinc. The amounts of vitamins vary depending on the quality of the nectar and honey. Raw honey is especially beneficial as it contains antimicrobial agents, making it particularly useful in wound healing.

The health benefits of honey are too numerous to count...check out this amazing resource on the health benefits of honey. You'll find everything from using honey for weight loss and beauty to information on honey-making.You've probably also heard about Manuka Honey. It hails from New Zealand and has been used by indigenous populations for centuries. Manuka honey is said to have certain properties not found in other types of honey. It is especially beneficial for stomach ulcers, and skin issues...many people even recommend using Manuka Honey to treat MRSA! 

Warning: NEVER give honey to infants under one year of age!
