The health benefits of unpasteurised cider vinegar
We will also try to produce some apple cider vinegar “with the mother” which contains a whole host of vitamins, E, A, B1, B2, B6 and in particular vitamin C. The ‘mother’ is made up of enzymes with living nutrients and bacteria. This organic apple cider vinegar will hopefully be made from our fully fermented dry cider.
Especially the connection between cider vinegar with mother and the treatment of arthritis has been known for many years. Margaret Hills, a state registered nurse, pioneered the treatment of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis with cider vinegar in the UK in the 1960s. Crippled by arthritis herself she cured her pain using cider vinegar and founded her clinic in Kenilworth.The explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes famously cured arthritis in his hands and hip with a mixture of natural cider vinegar and honey.
To use or consume the cider vinegar for any health purposes, you should dilute it before applying it to your skin or drinking it. (e.g. 2-3 tbsp of vinegar, diluted in water and honey, 2 times daily). It is very acidic and can damage the tooth enamel and the tissues of your throat, mouth or skin.
