A USDA certified organic product, it is produced via natural fermentation of organic Himalayan apple juice to 5% acidity.The presence of the “mother”, the concentrated source of good bacteria and enzymes, which is believed to be associated with a number of beneficial effects of apple cider vinegar, makes this the perfect apple cider vinegar for therapeutic as well as culinary uses.Therefore, for maximum benefit, you need apple cider vinegar produced from juice extracted through the cold-pressed extraction method from organically grown apples. The vinegar should not be pasteurized and should contain the ‘mother’.
The process of manufacturing apple cider vinegar, which was prevalent even in the Biblical period, makes apple cider vinegar a superior alternative to the synthetic vinegar. Fermentation of food is known to enhance its nutritional value. The “mother” in the apple cider vinegar is a concentrated source of enzymes and bacteria. This natural gelatinous substance gives the raw unfiltered vinegar its murky brown appearance. Apple cider vinegar that has been distilled, filtered and pasteurized lacks the ‘mother’ and has clear and appealing appearance. However, devoid of nutrients that are destroyed during the pasteurization process, it cannot provide the well-known benefits of organic apple cider vinegar.

Fermentation of organic apple juice preserves the nutrients present in raw apple, and in addition, it adds important enzymes and organic acids to apple cider vinegar. The beneficial effects of raw apple cider vinegar are primarily attributed to acetic acid, malic acid, pectin, potassium and calcium. Just as apple, apple cider vinegar too is an abundant source of potassium. Potassium plays an important role in growth, muscle development, transmission of nerve signals and maintaining healthy heart function. Acetic acid, the key constituent of vinegar, slows down digestion of starch, thereby helping in blood sugar management. Malic acid in apple cider vinegar is believed to be responsible for its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effects.  A tablespoon or 15 g of apple cider vinegar provide 15 mg potassium, 1 mg iron, 1 mg calcium and 1 mg phosphorus. 
How To Use StBotanica Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
There are a number of well-known uses of apple cider vinegar.
1. Blood Sugar Management
Apple cider vinegar ingestion at bedtime affects the pre-breakfast or fasting glucose level, also known as the “dawn phenomenon” in type 2 diabetes patients. A study reported that without changing other factors such as diet and medications, diabetics who consumed 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with one ounce cheese at bed reported improvement in fasting glucose level. 
2. Remedy For Heartburn
Though scientists have not yet studied the role of apple cider vinegar in alleviating heartburn, its effectiveness in reducing acidity is not doubted in folk medicines. The weak organic acid in vinegar seems to act as a buffer, thereby helping in restoring the stomach acid close to the normal level. Mix a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water. Add a teaspoon of honey. Take this apple cider vinegar drink when needed to sooth heartburn. It can be taken every 30 minutes, until the symptoms of acidity subside. 
3. Assists In Detoxification
Apple cider vinegar is recognized for its detoxification effect. Enzymes and acetic acid in apple cider vinegar are known to neutralize the excess stomach acid. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar helps in improving the function of the liver and other organs involved in detoxification. For detoxification, mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with two cups of water, and drink the mixture before meals, thrice a day. 
4. Morning Drink
To reap the maximum benefit of apple cider vinegar, drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, honey and warm water every morning. Prepare the drink by combining a tablespoon of organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar and two teaspoons of raw honey with a cup of warm water. 
5. Skin Toner
Apple cider vinegar works as astringent, antiseptic and skin toner. It helps in maintaining the natural pH of the skin and is known to attenuate skin infections, skin inflammation, itching, acne and blemishes. Dilute apple cider vinegar in water in the ratio 1:2. Soak a cotton ball in the diluted vinegar and dab it on your skin. If you have sensitive skin, increase the water content of your toner. 
6. Hair Rinse
The unpasteurized apple cider vinegar is great for hair care. Rinsing hair with apple cider vinegar eases removal of product residues, adds sheen to the tresses and leaves hair soft, smooth and lustrous. Prepare the apple cider vinegar rinse by mixing apple cider vinegar with equal amount of water. After shampooing your hair, pour the diluted apple cider vinegar on your hair. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse off with water. 
7. Foot Bath
Add ½ cup of apple cider vinegar to warm water and soak your feet in the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes. This relaxing foot bath helps in soothing the swollen feet and lessens foot odor. Rubbing the skin on the sole with a pumice stone after the apple cider vinegar foot bath helps in removing the dry skin and softens the feet. 
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Apple Cider Vinegar is considered superior to other Vinegars?
Apple cider vinegar is produced by a two-stage fermentation process from apple juice. Synthetic vinegar is manufactured by diluting concentrated acetic acid with water. There are other types of vinegars such as malt vinegar produced by fermentation of barley and oat, and distilled vinegar, commonly known as white vinegar, grain vinegar or spirit vinegar obtained from industrial alcohol. Although, acetic acid is the main ingredient in all types of vinegar, but apple cider vinegar contains additional nutrients for which it is considered superior to other vinegars.
What are the characteristics of good quality Apple Cider Vinegar?
Good quality apple cider vinegar contains the ‘mother’. Devoid of the ‘mother’, apple cider vinegar loses its health benefits. The ‘mother’ is a blend of beneficial enzymes, bacteria and trace minerals. Always opt for organic apple cider vinegar as it is obtained from the juice of organically grown apples and therefore, free from chemicals and pesticides. The apple cider vinegar should be unfiltered, unpasteurized and unprocessed.
There are sediments floating in the Apple Cider Vinegar, is it safe for use?
The sediment-like substance you are noticing in the apple cider vinegar is the nutrient rich ‘mother’. The mother is known to retain the enzymes and nutrients that occur naturally in apple juice and, moreover, gives the apple cider vinegar its antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and other healing properties.
How to know whether the Apple Cider Vinegar I’m buying is right for me?
By observing the appearance of the apple cider vinegar you can easily tell whether it is right for you. The non-organic, filtered and pasteurized vinegar is clear and does not contain any visible particles. Though it is used for cooking and various other purposes, it will not give you the same health benefits as the organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized vinegar. The slightly cloudy appearance of organic apple cider vinegar with floating particles may not be visually appealing, but this is the apple cider vinegar that is best for you.
