(NaturalNews) Apple cider vinegar, or as it is more affectionately termed "ACV", has been popular as a multi purpose remedy since the nineteen seventies. It was during this time that a particular book was published which brought its various health benefits into the spotlight. That book was called "Folk Medicine" and it was written by Dr. D.C. Jarvis.

In it, this simple country Doctor mentioned his observations of the health benefits of ACV for farm animals that appeared sickly. He also then began recommending ACV to his patients as a remedy to ward off sickness, help with digestion, and even aid in easing arthritis pain and in weight loss.

It is important that the ACV used is organic and unfiltered, so that it keeps its nutritional value in place. The hazy looking stuff that settles to the bottom is thought to be the most valuable part of organic, unfiltered ACV. This is called "the mother", and it is thought to be the most nutritious part of the ACV for therapeutic benefits.

From there, apple cider vinegar enjoyed popularity as a universal cure-all remedy on and off for the next few decades. It enjoyed a resurgence in the new millennium; people started to use it when dieting and reported that it helped them in their weight loss efforts.

The hypothesis is that ACV helps to stabilize blood sugar for a longer period of time, which in turn helps to control the appetite. The recommendation is generally to take 1-2 teaspoons of ACV mixed with water, before each meal. This addition to each meal may also help those with diabetes since it is thought to keep blood sugar levels stable for several hours.

The digestive benefits of ACV can be tremendous. Many with chronic acid reflux have noticed an almost complete disappearance of their symptoms after taking ACV religiously with each meal. When taken with meals, ACV can also help with common indigestion and gastrointestinal discomfort caused by certain foods.

ACV has also been used for common skin problems. It can be used as a topical astringent for acne prone skin, and some even report that taking ACV orally every day has helped clear their skin. It has been used to get rid of warts as well. This home wart removal remedy consists of using a band aid and a cotton ball soaked in ACV overnight, every night, until the wart disappears.

One of the most commonly mentioned benefits of ACV is that those who take it every day report that they rarely get sick. While the exact mechanism is not known for this interesting "side effect", it most likely can be chalked up to ACV's unique blend of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It also possesses antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, which may help explain why it wards off sickness.

Apple cider vinegar also possesses a component called acetic acid, which may also be responsible for aiding in digestion. It also may be responsible for greater ease and efficiency of fat metabolism and of stabilizing blood sugar levels. These properties, when combined with its vitamin and enzyme content, make for a wonderful addition to almost any diet.
