Used medicinally and therapeutically for centuries, it is made from apple juice that is fermented into apple cider, and fermented again to become apple cider vinegar.
Your skin, hair, house, and even your pets could benefit from a little raw, organic, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar and this how.
The fermentation process encourages the growth of healthy gut bacteria, so drinking apple cider can help with digestion, boost the immune system, and even positively affect mental health. It is also worth noting that as well as probiotics, it also contains anti-viral, anti-yeast and anti-fungal goodness which can make your stomach smile.
