Venerable vinegar

Dear Wendyl, I heard you on the radio recently discussing the benefits of apple cider vinegar with one of your guests and that you were trying it out. Can you tell me again what those benefits are and is it working for you? Shirley, Hamilton.


Dear Shirley, Thanks for your letter, because it gives me a chance to push one of the best health foods you can take, in my opinion. ACV, as we call it in my house, has been used for centuries to help with arthritis and joint pain and is now said to have benefits for diabetics by lowering blood sugar levels. And it can also gradually assist weight loss. My experience is that it tastes awful in the beginning but then you get used to it. I no longer have any indigestion problems and I’ll let you know about the weight loss. For more information you can visit
