Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is quite likely one of the best nutritional powerhouses available, bar none. What’s even more, it is affordable, easily accessed, and been proven to be used effectively throughout history.
Records of is use for its powerful healing qualities go all the way back to 400 BC with Hippocrates, the father of medicine, treating his patients with it. It has been called everything from the miracle health system, nature’s healing elixir, to the poor man’s cure-all.
Numerous books have been written on ACV's powerful healing qualities and many pages could be written here. However, just some of its major attributes will be highlighted in this post. Many of these health benefits are due to the fact that apple cider vinegar is fermented from apples and its high malic acid content.
Apple Cider Vinegar Benefit #1 – Toxic Metal Detoxification
Malic acid is valuable for protecting us from toxic metals. It is a chelator. Chelation describes a particular way that ions and molecules bind metal ions. This means that it is able to take toxic metals such as aluminum and lead and turn them into a more benign form so they cannot harm our body. Not only does this protect our cell, but it allows the liver to filter the toxins safely away so they can be eliminated from the body.
Apple Cider Vinegar Benefit #2 – Alkalinity
Apple cider vinegar help us become less acidic, and more alkaline which is another incredible health benefit. The benefits of becoming less acidic are considerable and include reduced risk of developing cancers, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart diseases and many other diseases.

It helps build skin and muscle tone and does a whole host of other benefits. Unfortunately, most Americans are potassium deficient.
