5 Reasons You Should Try Apple Cider Vinegar For Your Health
Vinegar (not just apple cider vinegar) has been used all over the world to help support health for thousands of years. There are records that show the use of flavoured vinegars (from adding fruit and honey) in what is now Iraq, from at least 5,000 years ago. Historically it has a wide range of uses from helping prevent infection (wound care and hand washing) in 10th century China to being used by early American doctors to help with fever, stomach-aches, swelling and croup.
There are different types of vinegar, often the process of making vinegar requires a fermentation of things like apples, grapes or fruit juices, but rice and malt are used too. Yeast digests the sugars in the fruit or rice and converts them into alcohol. A bacteria called acetobacter, then turns the alcohol into acetic acid - fermentation.
