I was looking at a post in regards to pesticides and Herbicides that are on most non organic produce these days. It is scary to think how much of this we are probably consuming on a day to daily basis. These poisons going into our systems and doing all sorts of damage to our bodies. And we wonder why people are getting sicker and sicker these days, with so many allergies to foods.
Well one way of cleaning of the chemicals from your fruits and veggies is to actually soak them and wash them in Apple Cider Vinegar and water for 10 to 20 minutes. This will help remove the chemicals from the fruit and veggies.
This takes a little time and effort, but well worth it for your health. It is good for any foods that you plan on eating the skin of, such as spinach, apples, Kale, Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, Pears etc. I use about 1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar in enough water to fill a good sized bowl or tub.
Let the fruit or Veggies sit in the water/ACV for 10 to 20 minutes and also give them a good scrub with a dedicated scrubbing brush. Do not use this brush for anything else.
Then rinse off under water after this. I rinse under my filtered water outlet so as not to add other contaminants such as Chlorine, Fluoride, heavy metals from normal tap water.

Always use the Raw Organic ACV that still has the “Mother” of the vinegar. The “Mother” is made up of the strand like enzymes of connected protein molecules with living nutrients and bacteria.
Other Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar are:
- There are studies that have shown ACV to be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth.
- It can help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol
- Rich in potassium. Potassium is a key factor for growth, building muscles, transmission of nerve impulses & Heart activity.
- May help improve bowel irregularity and helps remove toxins from the body at a faster rate.
- It can also help clear up skin conditions.
The usual preparation for drinking the ACV is 1 to 2 Tablespoons in a glass of water per day, in the morning. This will also help with Digestion.
