Below is a list of the benefits of raw apple cider vinegar:
1 Tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar mixed in 4 ounces of purifies water after a meal has been used as a natural remedy for heart burn and a replacement for toxic heartburn medications.
Raw apple cider vinegar may also help improve bowel irregularity, thereby removing toxins from the body at a faster rate.
Helps clear up skin conditions and blemishes giving a smoother texture and complextion.
Raw apple cider vinegar helps to break down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them.
On a small scale, researches at Arizona State University published a report that indicated that raw apple cider vinegar helps reduce levels of glucose.
I usually make salad dressings with apple cider vinegar but you could also dilute raw apple cider vinegar in water and add honey then drink it. I read that you dilute 1 Tablespoon with 32 oz of water and then mix it up well before you drink it.
Make it a great day!
