Benefits Of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar
It may not be the tastiest drink but apple cider vinegar has become a staple in many shopping baskets because it of its impressive health benefits, although some of these benefits have not been back up scientifically.
Not only can it be an added ingredient in many recipes like salad dressings and sauces, but drinking a small amount daily has huge benefits but remember too much of it can sometimes cause problems – so two teaspoons in a cup of warm water or tablets with 285 milligrams of dehydrated apple cider vinegar are also commonly sold. Don’t think about drinking it straight, your esophagus isn’t designed to withstand all that acid or is your stomach.
