Hello, I have a weak immune system from being starved as small kid.

Read about acv and tried it. Haven't had a cold in 2 years.

Stopped taking it over holidays, guess what, got a cold. Started back on it and in 3 days, cold was mostly gone, not like 2-3 weeks it usually takes me to get rid of one.

Look up the benefits of ACV you will be amazed.

ACV Helped my Cold
by: Kathleen

I am 75 years old, 5'4" tall and currently weigh about 310 lbs. I have lost and gained back so much weight all my life that nothing works any more so as long as I feel good, I am not worrying about it.

I used to have pre-diabetes and hypothyroid problems, but was able to overcome them. I am not on any medication although my MD is trying to put me on Lipitor as he says my LDL is a bit too high. But so far, I am not taking anything.

Two weeks ago, I picked up one of the worst colds I have had in a long time with lots of hacking and sinus draining all the time. Sleeping was almost impossible. Nothing I took helped.

I was in the market a couple days ago and the clerk asked me if I had tried ACV, but I hadn't. I had a bottle of Trader Joe's ACV in the house so went on line to see if it would help, and later, took a tbs. straight. Much to my surprise, the coughing and drainage stopped almost immediately. So, before I went to bed, I took 2 tbs ACV in hot water with 1 tbs. honey and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.

Last night, I had the best night's sleep I have had in a long time with no coughing or drainage.

Now, I am a believer and will continue this regimen from now on. If I lose weight, that is an added bonus. But my main thing is to stay well. And to think I went through 2 weeks of hell with a bottle of ACV in my cupboard.
Live and learn.
