Raw Coconut Vinegar

More nutritious than apple cider vinegar - But what does that mean exactly?  Who thinks of apple cider vinegar as being nutritious?  Well that's what I used to think when I would pass the isle in the supermarket and see that Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar was highly nutritious.  Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar is excellent but I'm coo coo for coconut products...

Coconut vinegar is more nutritious because of the rich volcanic soil.  Since coconut trees are grown in this rich volcanic soil, it contributes to the sap's high mineral content, which is extremely high in potassium.   There are 17 health-promoting amino acids, vitamin C and B and a natural prebiotic that promotes digestive heath.

Coconut sap is similar to fresh coconut water and it contains lots of minerals and vitamins. Naturally fermented coconut vinegar contains vitamins and minerals like Beta-carotene, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium and Sodium.  These and other minerals form compounds in the body that convert acid body fluids into alkaline. These are known as alkalizing minerals.

Tree climbers go from tree to tree each day collecting the nectar caught in these cylinders. Then the nectar nectar ferments in about 40 to 60 days with the color changing from a cloudy white, to a clear yellow to a brownish color which is a natural occurrence of the fermentation process.
The vinegar ages and sediments will appear in the bottom.  This is a natural characteristic of organic coconut nectar vinegar and to savor its natural goodness, you will want to shake it well before using.

I use this coconut vinegar in salad dressings and to add a splash of acidity to a dish.   It works great to dress a chopped Kale salad which is a green that I try to consume regularly.

Toss in some chopped pecans and little olive oil and it makes a perfect side dish.  

It helps lower bad cholesterol.

Helps aid in weight loss.

Lowers blood pressure.

Helps lower blood sugar glucose levels. 

Helps remove body toxins.

Simple ingredient...great power!
