Apple Cider Vinegar also contains:

One really special ingredient- it makes apple cider vinegar such a powerful, healthy, additive...Mycoderma acetic-  the "Mother", which developed during the fermentation process, found in raw apple cider vinegar (unprocessed and unheated) - which means it still has the "mother" - a huge cluster of enzymes, proteins, and good bacteria, often removed when processed. 

Consuming with mother intact (unprocessed) means you are getting the maximum benefit ( all the above ingredients) from the vinegar.
