Thank you for posting this!

Quoting Sarah725:

 Also I wanted to know about the hyrochloric acid (HCL), so I looked it up and was happy to find this.



Apple Cider Vinegar


A food source that is high in hydrochloric acid is apple cider vinegar. The website Aim for Health estimates that one to 10 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar combined with a glass of water can increase hydrochloric acid production in the body. This vinegar mixture can help you rapidly break down any food consumed during a meal. It is important to remember that drinking undiluted apple cider vinegar can burn your throat, so you should always dilute the vinegar with water or add it to a meal before ingesting it. If you experience a burning sensation in your throat while consuming apple cider vinegar, you can counteract its acidity by adding a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water or drinking a glass of milk.

The half moon is normal, it's got significance too, but I don't remember what. I'll ask the nail girls I work with. I know the bigger the better.

I drink ACV almost everyday. I'm one of those weird people who like the taste. For health reasons the ACV must have the mother. I really like Braags.

I know the mother is super important, but I don't know why. Do you know why?

I'm not sure exactly why either. I guess I contains all the foodstuff. Check out http://bragg.com/books/acv_excerpt.html for more info. Maybe they explain it there.
