Apple Cider Vinegar

In 400 B.C., Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, used natural apple cider vinegar, known for its powerful healing and cleansing qualities, to treat his patients.

The primary ingredient of our product is pure, aged apple cider vinegar. Even the process that makes the herb tinctures uses apple cider vinegar instead of alcohol, which is the basis of most herb extracts.

Vinegar is a very misunderstood substance. Vinegar is defined as a mixture of acetic acid and water. There are a number of types of vinegars available- apple cider vinegar, malt vinegar, wine vinegar, and distilled vinegar, both flavored and unflavored. Only real apple cider vinegar has any therapeutic  qualities. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Aged apple cider vinegar is used in making our product.

Many distilled vinegars are produced through a process using coal tar. It’s vinegar because it’s a mixture of acetic acid and water, but it’s pretty much worthless except for use as a preservative or cleaning fluid. Don’t be fooled by the label on the bottle. Buy a gallon of Heinz vinegar at the supermarket and chances are the label will say “Apple Cider Flavored Distilled Vinegar”. This vinegar has never seen an apple.

Malt vinegars are good for flavoring fish and other foods. Wine vinegars are also good for cooking certain dishes. Both have a tenderizing affect. After all, that acetic acid isn’t just going to sit there and do nothing.

Our apple cider vinegar is made through a fermentation process using apples and apples only. It is high in potassium and other vitamins and minerals. It is considered as one of nature’s perfect foods. Some call it the “elixir of life”.

High quality apple cider vinegar usually contains a slimy substance known as “Mother”. The mother will continue to grow throughout the shelf life of the vinegar. It is NOT a sign that the vinegar has spoiled. It IS a sign that the vinegar is of high quality and is not distilled.

During the process of making our product, we double filter it to remove any mother that is present (most people just don’t like the looks of it). Dependent upon a lot of factors, the mother may continue to grow and the residue of the herbs may attach itself to the mother, forming strings of dark slime in the bottle of the product. For that reason, we recommend that the user shake the product before each use. This will keep the mother broken up and make the product look better. If your product forms mother, don’t be alarmed. Just shake it vigorously. If it doesn’t break up to your satisfaction, you can strain the recipe through a coffee filter or cloth to get rid of the mother. Be assured that any slime that may form in the bottle is NOT harmful.
