Using Apple Cider Vinegar For Gout - Beware, not all apple cider vinegars are equal!

The correct manner of Apple Cider Vinegar for gout is all important. You will probably find that most Apple Cider Vinegars stocked by supermarkets and health food stores will not be as effective as raw, unpasteurised, unfiltered vinegar with the mother. Many types of Apple Cider Vinegar are filtered and heat treated to remove particles and sediment. Although it makes the vinegar appear nice, it actually removes many of the beneficial parts rendering it useless as anything other than a condiment. The living ball of enzymes known as the mother is key. This is usually removed by filtering as it appears to be a cobweb like formation floating around in the bottle and many people think there is something wrong with it. In some cases the mother is actually filtered out and re-packaged into capsules to be sold on as either a joint pain or gout remedy. In other cases vinegar is diluted and in some extreme cases up to 95% water and 5% vinegar so make sure you get the real deal.
