I only drink Organic ACV because it is raw and unfiltered. It has a recipe on the bottle for ACV Bracer to start the day with a wake -up vinegar bracer. 1-2tsp of ACV, 1tsp of honey, water' but never hot water because hot water de-activates enzymes. Some one posted a recipe using ACV with warm water. Who is correct "Solana Gold posted oVirtues of Vinegar or the reader feedback posted on 08/30/2007? I personally takes the Bracer recipe with no water, and it is truly a pick-me-upper with no jitters. ERC of Wichta, Kansas.
I like to use stevia to sweeten my ACV drink. It can be purchaced in many different flavors but a few drops of valencia orange works for me. I'm on a no sugar program so honey is out of the question.
One of the best remedies for colds, and to boost your immune system is apple cider vinegar, chopped garlic, honey, and warm water. Mix all the these ingredients together and drink it. Instantly you will feel better. This recipe is from my Serbian grandmother. I have been drinking since I can remember, and I have never taken any medication for colds.
Hey Maree!!! I also drink the apple vinegar with apple juice, however, regular apple juice has a good 42 g of sugar!! Even if you go with "lite", which has splenda added, uh oh.. thats not good either. Soo...I buy Gerber's Baby Apple Juice which has only 13 g of sugar. This is the best route so far!

Hi I have just begun to use ACV for weightloss and thought I would share this delicious tip. I mix the 2 tablespoons og ACV with raspberry tea and add raspberry seltzer water. The taste is delicious and is much like a no calorie wine spritzer.
MASKING TASTE OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: Hello and thank you for your wonderful site. I have erratic BP and do not want to go on meds. So I started taking ACV 2 tblspns with honey twice a day. I just can't stand the taste...I was taking it in a shot glass and holding my nose. Anyway..I bought some pure apple juice...well I put two tblspns ACV in a large glass and filled it up with apple juice,,,,and HEY PRESTO!!!NO YUCKY TASTE....YIPPEE....I am going to do this twice a day still but with the apple juice....thank heavens....
I just mixed:
* a cup of hot water
* two tablespoons of ACV
* a little cinnamon
* a little honey
then drank it like a tea, and it tastes great-- (i also tried maple syrup, which works okay, but i don't think it's as effective as the honey.)
I take apple cider vinegar as a digestive aid (with EXCELLENT results). I mix 2 TBLS of Raw Organic ACV with 4oz of Unfiltered Organic Apple Juice and 4 oz of pure bottled water. To avoid DENTAL problems, I simply drink the ACV with a STRAW. To restore the ph in my mouth, I rinse and/or brush with baking soda and water.
I have been doing this for about a month now and I love it. It has increased my energy and helped my mood. I feel much more pep when I use it. I have found the perfect formula for me:, it tastes like an apple soda.
2 Tbsp ACV
1/4 Tsp baking soda
1 Pack stevia
In case you are not familiar with stevia, it is a natural herb sweetner. It makes the Apple Cider Vinegar taste delicous and it does not add any calories! It readily dissolves in water and is much more healthy then chemical sweetners, you know the ones.. We are not allowed to market stevia as a sweetner in this country because the power that be would prefer us to keep using those chemical sweetners that are so profitable for them. But it can be sold as a supplement. You will find it in health food stores. It does not work great for coffee but works wonderfully for cold drinks and tea.
I just wanted to comment that if you take 4 tablespoons for honey on a daily basis, you may end up with a candida overgrowth (especially considering that most of us have a yeast overgrowth in the first place, at least to some extent). Candida overgrowth is a serious problem and will be exceptionally hard to rid off. The same is true about molases and apple juice. I think it is safer to stick with water when mixing ACV.
I have used apple cider vinegar for many years and it has to be the most universal natural remedy on Earth. I have found that adding 2 tbs of ACV to an 8 ounce glass of apple juice makes a much more palatable drink. It tastes similar to apple cider.
I just wanted to post how great my concoction has worked for me.I have increased energy levels, I am more alert and have also seen the greatest change in my general mood. My daily recipe is Apple Cider Vinegar, Molasses mixed with Honey in a bottle of home brewed green tea or water. It is absolutely delicous. Please try it and tell me what you think.
Here's a suggestion for convenience in using the ACV/honey remedy. Start with 1 quart ACV and 1 quart good quality local natural unpasturized honey (preferrably in glass jar) and a clean glass quart jar. Pour half the honey into the quart jar. Pour half the ACV into each jar half filled with honey. Replace lids and agitate until honey and ACV are thoroughly combined. Then pour mixture into empty vinegar bottle for easier pouring and refrigerate. If you wish to add 1 tbsp. ACV and 1 tbsp. honey to a glass of water, just add 2 tbsps. ACV/honey mixture. This mixture combines easily with water of any temperature. This saves me so much time that I actually stick with the plan.
I just wanted to say that I found this web-site today and thought I would try the ACV to lose weight and feel better. I am 75lbs now and will update later. I was wanting to let people know that you can mix it in with Sunny D and it's actually good! I gag on things very easy so I thought I would not be able to drink this stuff but I had some sunny d. and thought I would try it in it and it was very good. I won't have a problem drinking this at all!
About the apple cider; for one thing you do not drink large amounts of vinegar every day. That is insane. I read in a booklet on the research. Here is a formula:
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
garlic cloves; but i use garlic tincture; if you have ever eaten raw garlic it knocks the breath out of you
1 Tbsp honey
1TBsp lemon juice
i put this in tea; real tea; also miso, cayenne, ginseng, gingko, goto kolo and other herbs.
