Common Uses

More details on the potential health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar:

Acetic acid content: High levels of acetic acid in Apple Cider Vinegar have strong biological effects. Acetic acid has been used in traditional folk medicines and remedies for more than 2000 years. Recent studies in Japan on its health benefits have shown links between the use of acetic acid and improved blood pressure and the reduced accumulation of fat. In the USA, the FDA approved the use of acetic acid as a medication for a varying range of ailments including bacterial infections, because of its anti-microbial effects. For details on how to best use our Apple Cider Vinegar product, please call to discuss your needs.

Links between Apple Cider Vinegar and Diabetes: Studies have shown that there are links between the use of cider vinegar and a reduced blood sugar response during and after meals, and this may have positive effects on persons suffering from type 2 diabetes. Better control of blood sugar levels has also been linked to positive effects on the aging process.

Suggested Dosage

The time-honoured recipe for general well-being is to mix one to two teaspoons of Halls apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water, and take first thing in the morning.

Others believe that two teaspoons of Halls apple cider vinegar in a glass of water should be taken before each meal (three times a day).  This can help with a better breakdown of protein foods.
