Today we’re going to talk about apple cider vinegar and the coronavirus. Apple cider vinegar is very anti-microbial. 

It has been known to kill:
• E. coli 
• Staph 
• Candida 

Apple cider vinegar also has the ability to downregulate cytokines. A cytokine is involved in the immune process and inflammation. Apple cider vinegar may be able to help decrease inflammation by downregulating cytokines.

Apple cider could also impair cell membranes in certain pathogens. Apple cider vinegar and other kinds of vinegar can stimulate phagocytosis. Phagocytosis is a condition where you have this immune cell eating the pathogen. It eats the bacteria or virus and kills it. Vinegar, being an acid, can stimulate the activity of that process. 

Vinegar has been around for about 5,000 years, not just for consumption, but to aid in the healing process. There are even certain anti-viral solutions using vinegar that you can create to clean off different surfaces in your house. 

So, could apple cider vinegar kill the coronavirus? Well, we have no idea. There are no studies out there that show this. But, it is good to know that apple cider vinegar can potentially kill certain viruses and help improve the immune system by decreasing inflammation, stimulating phagocytosis, and also impairing the membranes of certain pathogens.
