Melrose Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey
The use of both honey and vinegar has been recorded over the centuries and both honey and vinegar have occurred separately in many biblical writings. Early use by man of honey was found recorded in the cave dwellings. It was one of the true pure foods available from the early development of man. In the last century or so there have been many substitutes for honey made available in the form of manufactured or derived sugars however, honey still remains the one product offering life-giving qualities not found in any other. It has only been in recent times that scientists, nutritionists and doctors began realizing its potential as both a food and medicine. Honey has the ability to top up the lost spots that may occur in the daily food intake. Health conscious individuals who know the value of honey consume it on a daily basis.

Some of the recent findings of medical research on apple cider vinegar therapy are recorded in this information. Also included are some of the more enduring folk or traditional remedies.
It has been long claimed that apple cider vinegar can reduce arthritis, forestall osteoporosis, kill infection, condition the skin, aid digestion, control weight, preserve memory and protect the mind from aging (just to name a few). But can apple cider vinegar possibly do all that is claimed? The answer may be yes. This is because it is a combination of sharp taste and germ killing acids. Apple cider vinegar is first made when fresh naturally sweet crushed apple juices are fermented to form a sweet cider (an alcoholic beverage). Apple cider vinegar is then fermented from the sweet apple cider (which converts and eliminates the alcohol), and takes its honey-gold colour from tannins, which flow from ruptured cell walls of fresh, ripe crushed apples. When the vinegar comes into contact with air during the process it develops the rich, golden colour we associate with cider vinegar and gives it the distinctive flavour.
Honey contains Maltose, Fructose, Glucose, Water, Trisaccharides & other higher Carbohydrates, Sucrose, 12 Minerals, 12 Vitamins and Enzymes.
Apple cider vinegar contains over thirty important nutrients, a dozen minerals, over half a dozen vitamins and essential acids and several enzymes. Plus, it has a large dose of pectin for a healthy heart. Elements include Phosphorous, Potassium Chlorine, Sodium ,Manganese, Sulphur, Calcium, Iron, Fluorine and Silicone. Apple cider vinegar varies from batch to batch with the kind and condition of the apples used in it. Partly because of this, medical scientists do not always know exactly how or why it promotes healing. They do however recognize it as both antiseptic and antibiotic.
HONEY & VINEGAR’S EARLIEST MEDICAL USES
An early Assyrian medical text described the treatment for ear pain as being the application of vinegar. In 400BC, Hippocrates (considered the Father of Medicine) used vinegar to treat his patients. This naturally occurring germ killer was one of the very first “medicines”. Vinegar was used as a healing dressing on wounds and infectious sores in Biblical times. Vinegar is credited with saving the lives of thousands of soldiers during the US Civil War. It was routinely used as a disinfectant on wounds.

MELROSE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR & HONEY AND ARTHRITIS
Annually arthritis sufferers spend billions of dollars searching for some relief, which often does not eventuate. Those who suffer the pain of arthritis will try almost anything to be free of this crippling disease. Often individuals spend large sums of money on cures, many of which do not relieve the chronic pain or stop the progression of the disease.
The Journal of the American Dietetic Association notes that both medical and nutrition authorities agree on one important fact about arthritis care: The only specific treatment for arthritis is “weight control and a nutrient-dense diet”. This respected journal explains the conclusion that nutritional scientists have drawn from the studies of the eating habits of arthritis sufferers. Sometimes, the patient’s diet is found to be extremely deficient in some nutrients.
Perhaps this helps to explain the long-standing belief by many that naturally fermented apple cider vinegar can play an important part in relieving some of the pain and slowing the progression of arthritis (due to its rich nutrient factor). At the very least it is less likely to adversely affect the individual taking it than some of the more expensive products advertised as being able to ease the symptoms of arthritis. By comparison, Melrose Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey is inexpensive!
The time-honoured recipe for dealing with arthritis is 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, mixed into a glass of water and taken morning and evening. While not claiming to be a cure for arthritis – regular drinking of the product has assisted thousands in reducing the pain and swelling of joints caused by arthritis. Melrose Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey makes this easy by combining these two certified pure products in a convenient form (you just add the water).
It has been well documented and proven in scientific research that bacteria cannot live in the presence of honey. In laboratory tests various disease germs have been placed in a pure honey medium with astounding results. Within a few hours, or at the most a few days, each of the disease micro organisms died. The factors that may contribute to the antimicrobial properties of honey are well documented. Generally, darker honeys and those with higher water content have stronger antioxidant potential. The antioxidants identified thus far in honey are pinocembrin, pinobanksin, chrysin and galagin.
Pinocembrin is unique to honey and found in the highest amount relative to the others. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), catalase and selenium are also present.
Pure bees honey is also an excellent medium for carrying natural minerals and vitamins. It is a predigested food from the bees, so it is quickly assimilated into the body. This in turn assists the body in its healing process.
