    There is an old 1.) saying, 2.) "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"

    The first 3.) apple ciders were made by the Egyptian and Byzantine civilizations. People have been 4.)

    enjoying apple cider since 55B.C. when the Romans arrived in England and saw that the local people were drinking this 5.) beverage.

    So, what´s so special about apple cider?

    Apple cider is made from fermenting apple juice. It is a natural and a 6.) healthy drink without any additives or chemicals. It´s 7.) made up of 75 to 85% water and sugar.

    Cider contains vitamins C, B2, A, and D which is important for everyone. Cider has an alcohol content between 4 to 6 degrees. If one drinks it moderatly, it increases vitality and a 8.) feeling of  happiness.

    When cider is rich in 9.) tannin, its effect is astringent and 10.) therefore recommended in cases of diarrhea. It´s also good for rheumatism, obesity, hipertension and can reduce cholesterol 11.) due to its diuretic effects.

    There are studies in England and the USA which 14.) state that there are 15.) less deaths of heart attacks in moderate drinkers of apple cider due to its high 16.) pectin content.
