    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between ordinary ACV and ACV with the "mother" in. Everyone says the one with the "mother" in it is best - I'm curious to know why and what benefits this one gives you to plain ACV?

    Hi Janet

    The mother is the dark, cloudy substance in the ACV formed from naturally occurring pectin and apple residues by acetobacter - it appears as molecules of protein connected in strand-like chains. The presence of the mother shows that the best part of the apple has not been destroyed. Vinegars containing the mother contain enzymes and minerals that other vinegars may not contain due to over processing, filtration and overheating. [See: here]

    Natural Apple Cider Vinegar is a wonderful natural cure for a number of ailments which usually require antibiotics and other medications that have a number of side effects. In particular, Apple Cider Vinegar has been known to:


    • Reduce sinus infections and sore throats
    • Balance high cholesterol
    • Cure skin conditions such as acne
    • Protect against food poisoning
    • Fight allergies in both humans and animals
    • Prevent muscle fatigue after exercise
    • Strengthen the immune system
    • Increase stamina
    • Increase metabolism which promotes weight loss
    • Improve digestion and cure constipation
    • Alleviate symptoms of arthritis and gout
    • Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections [See: here]

    I hope that helps!

    So without the "mother" in - what will ACV do if one takes it daily - H&B couldn't tell me today when I asked them. Anyone know?

    Have a look at Earth Clinic's list of remedies for ACV. There are dozens of uses listed from dandruff to lowering cholesterol. What are you hoping it will do? What are you taking it for? Did the H&B folk think it would help your ailment?

    I've just added this to my daily routine. I put a spoonful in a glass of water and sip it. The raw, unfiltered organic variety is rather tasty and apple-like, not at all unpleasant. You could add honey if you wanted to but I find it very refreshing without. I'm trying to alkalinise my body and this is part of it.

    Does anyone find that when taking the ACV with the mother in it that it makes them bloat/gain weight? Supposed to be a weight loss help - I just don't seem to get that result - is this an initial thing and will it settle down once my body gets used to it or is it just me it doesn't agree with.

    Would appreciate what other people find when taking it.

    I have been taking ACV for 1 week. It is good...helped me with my heartburn/indigestion. Now it helps my weight.

    I put my pounds of notes on it!

    That's good - did you find it made you bloat the first few days and then settle down - how much weight have you lost.

    Can I ask how you took it - before you ate, after you ate, hot water or cold water and how much?

    ACV and baking soda

    I have been drinking it for 2 months now...its helping me with my wight loss. I dont experience face bloating anymore.

    Is baking soda safe to drink along with ACV?

    So do you take it before you eat or after - in warm water or cold.

    How much weight have you lost? How did your face bloat before you started taking ACV as I have that problem.

    i've been drinking 3 glasses of 2 teaspoons of ACV and a teaspoon of lemon juice in water and it helped me pass a kidney stone i didn't even know i had. i heard about ACV on EARTHCLINIC which has many excellent natural remedie suggestions.

    take care

    Hi Jocky

    Did you get any other benefits from taking it - did you take it before you ate or in between meals - have you lost weight?

    hi janet, i take it when i get up in the morning, afternoon and before bed. i seem to get a good sleep i don't know if thats the ACV but i wasn't a great sleeper untill. i've not been using the organic stuff with mother in it just holland and barret stuff seems to be benefiting me alround i think but not seem any weight loss but i'm always actively putting weight on so it probably wont benifit me in that way. really good stuff though.

    take care

    I've often wondered what the difference is in the two kinds - the one with the mother in and the one without - I've not used the one without but I know the one with the mother in makes me feel good - ups my mood and it does help with bloating. Try the one with the mother in it because it has a host of good points to it.

    If you do an internet search for the mother ACV - read about the benefits. Keep us posted how you get on.
