Brown Rice Vinegar (BRV)

Characteristics of Brown Rice Vinegar
The acetic acid bacteria of brown rice vinegar (BRV) affects liver cells and support them for sterilization, neutralization, diuresis, synthesis, and works to prevent and cure various diseases in live stock.
BRV is weakly acidic but when it is decomposed in the body, the remnant becomes alkali. Therefore, it is called alkali food. Cereals and fruits, which produce vinegars are typical alkali foods.
BRV itself is an acid, but it changes into a base when it is absorbed by humans, livestock or crops. So, BRV functions to change the physical constitution from acidic to alkali, which means it renews the body into a pure and healthy condition.
BRV contains phytic acid, it helps to neutralize poisons, to sterilize and to improve physical constitution. It is effective in preventing and curing various diseases.
BRV has more amino acids and organic acids, which are antidotal, than any other food. Therefore, it is excellent for decomposing lactic acid, which prevents aging.
BRV raises the calcium absorption ratio. If body fluid tends to be acidic, the body tries to neutralize it and when this happens, the body needs calcium. It is difficult for calcium to be absorbed in an acidic condition. But, combined with the citric acid in BRV, calcium can easily be absorbed.
BRV in low concentrations facilitates vegetative growth and affects the initial growth of leaves. If BRV is applied on the leaves, it helps them form the wax layer, which creates thicker leaves, fastens foliation and increases resistance to diseases and insects.
BRV improves the flexibility of the tree and increases absorption ability when Natural Farming materials are sprayed.
Due to the activity of the acetic acid bacteria, BRV has an ability to sterilize and restrain bacterial growth.
Because it is used with water-soluble calcium, BRV maximizes the effect of calcium.
BRV of high concentration accelerates reproductive growth.
Same method as 'Makgeolli'(Korean rice wine).
If ripe 'Makgeolli' is left as it is, BRV is produced due to the acetic acid bacteria. (instead of BRV we can use 15 days fermented toddy, it turns in to Vinegar)
Put the eggshells in BRV and make water-soluble calcium.
Dissolve the animal bones (cow / pig / chicken / fish ) in BRV and make water-soluble calcium phosphate.
For the purpose of sterilizing, use BRV with a dilution ratio of 1:500 at the juvenile leaf stage and a ratio of 1:200-1:300 at the adult leaf stage.
BRV is used for making Soil Ground work, Seed and Seedling Treatment, treatment of Nutritional Growth Period, Changeover Period and Reproductive Growth Period.
BRV is used for making IMO-3, IMO-4 and enriched compost.
