If the title of this blog post alone has you feeling confused, don’t worry. It isn’t a typo, and no one is getting fired. Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is a type of apple cider vinegar (ACV). The mother ACV is a beneficial, nutrient-dense type of vinegar, but we’ll get to that soon.

I remember growing up, my mom would make me tea with apple cider vinegar anytime I was feeling sick. Or, if my sister or friends got sick, my mom would make me a honey elixir with apple cider vinegar to help support my immune system in hopes I didn’t catch it too. She made sure it tasted good, and it usually worked, so I never really asked questions. Once I left the nest and had to make my own ACV drinks, I started to investigate exactly what apple cider vinegar benefits are.

Apple cider vinegar benefits have become quite popular in the last few years, and shots of ACV are the norm. But what does it even do? Do you know why you take it? Today’s blog we’ll cover everything from apple cider vinegar benefits, to what the heck apple cider vinegar with “the mother”, or the mother ACV, is.

What Is Apple Cider Vinegar With “The Mother”?

Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is an unrefined, unpasteurized, unfiltered version of apple cider vinegar. It’s full of gut-friendly probiotics called acetic acid bacteria. This particular bacteria is said to help act as a remedy from a wide range of things, which I dive into in more detail below. 

If you’ve ever bought the mother ACV, you know that it even looks different than filtered, or “regular”, apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is darker and looks like it has stuff floating around in it, which if you didn’t know what it was, you’d think it was expired or contaminated. When really, this is all the amazing bacteria and yeast that contribute to its healing powers!

Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is the premium of apple cider vinegars. It may not look as pretty, but it packs a punch of benefits. It isn’t as common to find on store shelves, but you can find it at some health food stores, and in good supplement brands.

Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits

It’s no secret apple cider vinegar is a great health supplement to have on hand. When you start purchasing unfiltered apple cider vinegar with “the mother”, you’ll start seeing those benefits come to life even more! Here are the top five benefits of apple cider vinegar.

1. Immune Support

One of the many apple cider vinegar benefits is that it supports immune function. It’s a great way to help ward off bacteria and infections. The antibacterial properties in apple cider vinegar, and especially the mother ACV, can help fight off harmful pathogens in our bodies. [1]

2. Nail & Skin Benefits

Not only did my mom know about using ACV for immunity, but she also always told me about the nail & skin benefits of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is a great skin toner because it can help balance skin pH. Plus, it can act as an antifungal for nail infections, and smooth out cracked heels or fingers.[1]

3. Healthy Weight Loss

The apple cider vinegar shot tread started when people learned ACV can help aid in weight loss. While shots aren’t encouraged for their harshness on the esophagus, taking the mother ACV in drinks like teas and tonics, or digested in supplements, is a great way to support weight loss. [2]

4. Lowers Blood Sugar

Especially for diabetics, keeping track of blood sugar levels is very important. The particular acid found in apple cider vinegar is said to help prevent blood sugar spikes. [3] This can be especially useful information and could be a good reason to start supplementing with apple cider vinegar pre- or post-meal time.

5. Anticancer Effects

The same acid that helps prevent blood sugar spikes, may help contribute to cancer-fighting properties. One study found that apple cider vinegar can help to topically treat some types of cancers. [4]
