Apple Cider Vinegar for Helping Your Gall Bladder

Author: Gallbladder Help

Apple cider vinegar comes from fermented apple cider. During fermentation, the apple cider sugars are broken down first into alcohol and then into vinegar.

Unlike white vinegar, apple cider vinegar is usually a light brown color. The unpasteurized, unfiltered kind often develops a sediment cloud called "the mother," which many claim is the most health beneficial part of the vinegar. "The mother" is acetic acid bacteria.

This may be helpful for gall stones. While clearly apple cider vinegar is clearly an acid, when your body processes the vinegar, the end result is your body becomes more alkaline, which can help your bile become more in balance with our natural diet of lots of fruits and vegetables. (Western diets of meat and grains are highly acidic when metabolized.)

Possibly more important than the alkalizing effect of apple cider vinegar, are the benefits of malic acid. This acid is widely claimed to break down and soften gallstones, as well as thinning bile and gallbladder sludge.

You can buy all types of apple cider vinegar at nearly any grocery store, and buying the organic, unfiltered, unpasteurized brands (like Braggs), is recommended.

To add some apple cider vinegar to your diet, use it to create your own salad dressings with extra virgin olive oil, a teaspoon or too in a glass of water for an energy pick-me-up, or even taken as tablets.

Keep in mind that too much of a good thing can be unhealthy – too much apple cider vinegar can damage your tooth enamel and hurt your esophagus over time.

By adding some apple cider vinegar to your daily eating regimen, you should help your gallbladder, reduce symptoms of gallstones, and also gain some extra energy.
