Learn more about our Apple Cider Vinegar

What is Apple Cider Vinegar?

Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting apples which turns them into acetic acid – the active ingredient in vinegar.

What does “With the Mother” mean?

A raw and unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar likes ours will contain proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria which gives this type of vinegar a cloudy appearance. It’s this mix of goodness which is known as ‘the mother’.

What does it taste like?

Our Manuka Doctor Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother and Manuka Honey has a mild acidity of vinegar but with the sweetness of honey. 

We also have two new flavours. 

Apple Cider Vinegar with Manuka honey and ginger for those who like a spicy kick to their flavours. 

And Apple Cider Vinegar with Manuka honey, Turmeric and Long Pepper, which also has a light spice.

What makes Manuka Doctor’s Apple Cider Vinegar different to other brands?

As well as the wellbeing properties of Apple Cider Vinegar, our Manuka Doctor product has an extra special ingredient. Manuka Honey with a 300 MGO rating.

Methylglyoxal or MGO for short, is a naturally occurring compound found in Manuka honey and is derived from DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which is naturally present in the nectar of the Manuka Bush. Manuka Honey is widely known for its special Antimicrobial properties. Antimicrobials can fight and kill certain types of bacteria.

How do you take Apple Cider Vinegar?

Given that it's a traditional remedy and not a medicine, there are no official guidelines on how to consume it.

Most people choose to stir between 1 tsp - 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar into a glass of cold water, or mug of hot water. Some people just like to take a spoonful a day like they do with their Manuka honey.

Some people like to create their own Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic by using other ingredients such as honey and lemon, or ginger root.

What are the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?

It may help to improve digestion

The human gut contains a large number of microorganisms including bacteria known as the gut microbiota, and these microorganisms are important for our overall digestive health [1]. Like other fermented foods such as yoghurt, our raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar can be considered a probiotic as it contains healthy bacteria which help to maintain a healthy gut microbiome, and Apple Cider Vinegar is particularly beneficial as apples contain pectin which has been shown to aid digestion [2,3].

It may help support your immune system

Our gut microbiome is not only important for our digestive health, as recent research has found it to be closely linked to our immune function [4]. One of the main functions of our microbiota is to protect our intestine from harmful pathogens and bacteria that enter our gut, and maintaining a healthy gut microbiota helps our gut immune system to fight harmful pathogens efficiently [5].

It may help to reduce blood glucose levels

The main component of Apple Cider Vinegar is acetic acid, and this has recently gained a lot of interest as it has been found to be effective in reducing blood glucose levels [6]. Apple Cider Vinegar may therefore be able to help in the daily management of type 2 diabetes, as well as reducing the risk of obesity which is frequently associated with diabetes [6].
