What’s under your bathroom sink?
I was raised in the 60s by a grandmother who believed in old skool home remedies:
A big tablespoon of Cod Liver or Castor Oil every Saturday morning;
A big bowl of Turnip or Collard Greens on Sundays;
A few pieces of Horehound Candy for a cough or cold;
And Apple Cider Vinegar for everything else!
Upset stomach…insect bites…inflammation
I have been drinking a shot of regular Apple Cider Vinegar with water almost every night for years, usually purchasing a bottle from Dollar Tree for a buck. However, recently I starting seeing Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Raw Unfiltered on the store shelves, but never purchased it because it was a bit more costly.
Last week while shopping at Walmart with my son, I decided to take the plunge and purchase a bottle for which I am glad that I did. Like Mikey, “I tried it and I liked it!”
The Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Raw Unfiltered is not as acidic as regular Apple Cider Vinegar which is good because now there’s no need to add a lot of water which dilutes to too much and it’s much easier to swallow with just a little bit of water.
My grandmother told me that Apple Cider Vinegar was good for digestion as well as inflammation, and I always knew when her arthritis was acting up because her room would smell like vinegar. She would rub it on her legs and thighs and swore that it helped ease the pain and I believed her.
