A Brief History:
Despite its fertile grounds, and dense, tropical climate that is perfect for growing a variety of fruit, Taiwan has seen its share of struggles regarding organic farming and sustainable agriculture. This is due to government regulations that include strict limitations on land use and farming practices. However, this did not discourage Chen Kuen-Sheng to set out and achieve his goal of creating and nuturing a farm that put integrity and eco-conscious farming methods at the heart of its practices. This was what led to the birth of Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard.
Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard:
Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard is a 100% eco-friendly, organic, and sustainably-minded farm based in Tainan, Taiwan. In the 1980’s, Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard was ahead of it’s time and established rigorous faming practices such as banning the use of artifical pesticides and the practice of fabric-wrapping and in it’s set practice of using only organic fertilizers. In addition, Mr.Chen ( the founder of Chen Jia Zhuang )worked in local towns to manage or elimate local pollution that affected the health of his crops, as well as acheived the very impressive feat of employing open-air cultivation devoid of greenhouse , plastic wrapping and netting.The water source that is used to grow the crops is closely monitored to ensure that everything is produced with only the cleanest water available.
Why Young Scent works with Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard:
Young Scent is ecstatic to be able to say that we source all fruit for our fruit-drinking vinegars and vinegar-concentrates from Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard. Chen Jia Zhuang Orchard has been long revered for it’s delicious passionfruit and mulberry, 2 base flavors found in the Young Scent product lines. We have to say are incredibly happy to partner with this respected farm. At Young Scent, we believe in every single one of our products becuase they boast the flavors of the Tawainese tropics without ever compromising the health of both you as well as Mother Nature.

Apple cider vinegar is a pretty amazing substance that can do a lot in and around your home and is great for your health. It has been touted as a cure-all for decades but how do you use this healthy elixir to boost your daily health?
If you’re contemplating adding apple cider vinegar to your daily routine, you may not be sure how to go about doing it. One of the questions you may be asking yourself is how much should I drink. That’s a good question because you don’t want to overconsume the amount of apple cider vinegar in your system. Too much may lead to low levels of blood sugar and potassium levels, so as with anything, moderation is key!
How to Drink Apple Cider Vinegar
If you decide to open a bottle of apple cider vinegar and take a gulp to get the recommended amount, you are in for a rude awakening. It’s always best to dilute your apple cider vinegar to make it more palatable. You’ll want to add about one teaspoon to a tablespoon to a cup of water.
You may find that the taste is still raw, so you may want to add some raw honey as a sweetener. You may find that honey just isn’t enough to make this digestible, and that’s fine. Alternatively, there are other recipes out there that can help make apple cider vinegar into a tonic or mocktail. Other options include homemade or grab-and-go drinking vinegars.
What Are the Benefits and Side Effects to Consider?
Consuming apple cider vinegar in moderation as part of your daily diet can be extremely beneficial. Not only can it help your body maintain a healthy alkaline pH level, it can also:
- Regulate blood sugar
- Promote healthy detoxification of the liver
- Eases digestive ailments
- Improves blood circulation
But if taken undiluted or in excess, it can lead to short and long term side effects such as nausea, upset stomach, decreased potassium, and weakened tooth enamel.
- Nausea. Drinking apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach increases the likelihood of nausea.
- Upset Stomach. Drinking apple cider vinegar may result in a stomach ache that lasts for over an hour. Mixing the vinegar with a little baking soda will balance out the acidity. Mixing eight ounces of water with two teaspoons apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon baking soda is also recommended.
- Decreased Potassium. Consuming apple cider vinegar will lower your body’s potassium levels. If you are already taking medications that treat lower potassium levels, speak to your doctor before adding apple cider vinegar to your diet.
- Weakened Tooth Enamel. The high acidity in apple cider vinegar can cause your enamel to weaken. After consuming apple cider vinegar, you should rinse your mouth or sip it with a straw to protect your teeth.
Who Should Take Special Precautions?
- Pregnant and Nursing Mothers. Those that are pregnant should take caution as there has not been adequate studies reflecting whether it is dangerous for them to consume this substance. Nursing mothers should take caution as apple cider vinegar can be passed through the breast milk and it may be too strong for your child.
- Diabetics. Apple cider vinegar may lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. If consumed, blood sugar levels need to be monitored closely and doses may need to be adjusted as needed.
- Other Precautions. Drinking apple cider vinegar can negatively interact with medications that contain furosemide, bumetanide, chlorthakindone, chlorothiazide, etharcrynic acid or metolazine. Speak to your doctor before adding apple cider vinegar to your diet.
