Known for it’s health benefits, apple cider vinegar was used traditionally to make tonics. It is very effective in extracting vitamins and minerals. However, vinegar doesn’t break down some plants quite as effectively as other methods, so it is not as popular for use in extracts. Because it is less potent it can be used liberally and for longer periods, so it can be incorporated into your cooking. This is ideal when you are looking to achieve long-term health and wellness goals.
