Herbalist Susun Weed, author of Wise Woman Herbal and founder of the Wise Woman Center in Woodstock, New York, uses herbal vinegars to boost the mineral count in her diet. "Many herbs and weeds are extremely high in minerals," she says. "And ordinary apple cider vinegar dissolves the minerals from plant tissues and puts them into a form that your body can assimilate. Many of these plants have excellent nutritive qualities beyond adding minerals to the diet," Susun adds, "For example, purslane contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other known plant.''
