Well, since starting to drink ACV every day, my weight has dipped again, after a loooong plateau. (seemed like years.. :lol: :lol: )
I went to the Bragg's website, and looked around. I also signed up for some free samples, which came today.
I LOVE free samples.
and you know who you are...
Since everyone seems to be asking/talking about ACV, I thought I would post some of their literature that came with the free sample. I don't know how much of it is true, nor do I necessarily believe everything they say about it, because of course, they are trying to sell the ACV, but I figured maybe one central place to talk about it might be a good thing.
I actually endorse buying the cheapest kind you can find that has the mother in it. The store by me sells it for $4 and change for a quart and up, or $18 a gallon.Claims They Make

Some of these uses must be topical, I have heard of putting vinegar on a sunburn before.
To get the benefits of drinking ACV, you have to have the kind with the mother in it, which is the sediment on the bottom of the bottle. The regular, pastuerized, filtered kind with no mother isn't supposed to do a thing for you except be flavorful.
The recipe they have is as follows:
drink 3X a day
1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1-2 tsp raw honey
I put mine in iced tea. This is 1oz of ACV per quart of tea. 1oz = 2TBS
1 gallon of iced tea
1 tub of Crystal Light, I like the grapefruit flavor best
