The leading brands of ACV will contain "The Mother". The Mother is a cobweb like, amino acid based substance found in unprocessed, unfiltered vinegar. This indicates it is of the finest quality and is usually settled at the bottom of the bottle so it is always worth giving the bottle a decent shake before use. It is "The Mother" that is thought to contain a lot of the health benefits associated to ACV.
Bragg is the result of a life time of crusading the word of good health worldwide. Founded by Paul C. Bragg in 1912, who as teenager was crippled by TB, Bragg developed an eating, breathing and exercising program to rebuild Paul's body into an ageless, tireless, pain-free citadel of glowing, super health. By 1920 Bragg opened the first health restaurants & first health spas in America, as well as a health food store in Los Angeles. And upon being the first to introduce both pineapple and tomato juice to America consumers, Bragg moved in to live health food production, where it still thrives today.
