    I've been reading some stuff on apple cider vinegar lately and it seems many are touting it as a cure all for a multitude of complaints such as arthritis, poor digestion, candida, weightloss, glucose control in diabetics, acid refux..etc..

    As anyone on Destee tried the ACV daily regimen? if so, what were you results?


    I do use ACV and lemon as monthly treatment to wash my locks, and I have noted it dose a better job of washing out buildup and dirt than regular shampoo.

    I plan on quiting my green tea ritual for month to take on the ACV 3 regimen, and I will post the results (if any) in this thread.

    Daily Apple cider Vinegar regimen

    1) Use only raw unpasteurised apple cider vinegar (available in several varieties from all good health food stores). Unpasteurised apple cider vinegar is safe because the acid levels will kill unfavourable bacteria. It contains abundantly more living goodness that ‘dead’ supermarket versions. The thin web-like strands you will find settling in raw apple cider vinegar are the living part, called the ‘mother’. They produce copious quantities of enzymes, malic and tartaric acids, and valuable minerals, including potassium.

    2) Shake the bottle prior to use to disperse the ‘mother’.

    3) Try taking 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (plus 1 teaspoon of honey if you prefer) in ½ a glass of water prior to meals. See how you feel over a couple of weeks, noting changes to ease of digestion, quantity of food intake and level of sugar cravings after meals.

    4) if you are not about to eat, brush your teeth after taking the vinegar. Too much apple cider vinegar has been found to damage tooth enamel due to its acidity.

    Be very careful. Acv is a fermented food and fermented food is good for white people because they are nasty by nature and can benefit from such acidification. But Black folks don't need it like that.

    That's so what's confusing about the what I've been reading, I read that once ACV is ingested, it breaks down to a alkaline substance thereby making the body's ph go up(alkaline) which is favorable for getting rid of free radicals, fight infections, detoxifying..etc..

    I need to ask chemist i guess..because thinking back to chemistry class, dose acid+acid+alkaline?
