The Truth About MOTHER

The Mother in Apple Cider Vinegar is a web of string like strands that contain lots of friendly bacteria.  That naturally occur when fermenting the apples. That cloudy substance contains powerful enzymes, and life boosting minerals, as well as natural Malic acid.  Which fights the nasty toxins in your body.

A lot of supermarket brands out there have pasteurised, and filtered out all the beneficial bacteria in there Apple Cider Vinegar.  And other brands you see claiming they contain MOTHER, usually come from foreign sources, where there is no accounting for the quality of fruit used, or the sprays used on the trees.  So, you may be drinking MOTHER, but probably ingesting all kinds of fertiliser nastiness too.

The mother also contains a wealth of probiotics – the good kind of bacteria! Probiotics strengthen your immune system and can protect against certain illnesses. They improve your digestive health, creating a healthy balance between the good and bad bacteria inside you. Too much bad bacteria in your body can cause intestinal diseases, like celiac or Crohn’s disease. Probiotics found in the mother of apple cider vinegar can help prevent those diseases and keep you healthy.

The mother can also improve heart health and lower cholesterol. It’s often recommended for people with diabetes, as it helps keep blood sugar levels in check and improves insulin sensitivity. 

With my Orchards I never use sprays or other nasties, and I don’t speed up the fermentation process.  I let Mother occur naturally as nature intended.
