Last week researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center found hope for anemia patients by using common household vinegar. This story, published in The Dallas Morning News, is too valuable not to share with you. For your own reading, here’s the [LINK}. Mac and I have been using Raw Apple Cider Vinegar in our water, daily, for years, so I was happy to see research on this. It appears this study was done with white vinegar. The component, acetate, from the vinegar, activates a molecular pathway that results in the production of red blood cells. Both white vinegar, and apple cider vinegar, are rich in acetate. Mac and I prefer the taste of apple cider vinegar.
RECIPE: APPLE CIDER VINEGAR & FILTERED or DISTILLED WATER
Apple Cider Vinegar Drink: Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons Raw, Organic ACV (I use the Bragg Brand ACV) with 8 ounces water. It is optional to sweeten to taste with raw honey, agave nectar, or pure maple syrup. If diabetes is a challenge, use 2 drops of stevia. If beginning, start with 1 teaspoon ACV, and work up to 2 teaspoons per 8 oz water.
At our house, we use a quart size jar. Fill with distilled water, and 2 tablespoons ACV, no sweetener. This is our daily drink. We also fast one day a week. When fasting, we drink 1 quart during the morning, 1 quart around noon to early afternoon, and 1 quart early evening.
Someone told me Bragg Brand Apple Cider Vinegar was available at Walmart, so I went to check it out. It was available for $5.08 for a 32 ounce bottle. I bought six bottles. Now, let’s do math! Say you put in 1 tsp per 8 ounces of water. From a 32 ounce bottle, that’s 192 drinks. Your cost per glass is 0.03. A lot less than a soda, and much better for you.
