Apple Cider Vinegar!

I’ve received quite a few emails asking about apple cider vinegar! I have to say as gross as it sounds to drink, this stuff works wonders and the benefits far outweigh the nasty taste! The good news is… it’s an “acquired taste” so before too long you won’t mind it!

As far back as I can remember, my mom always had a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar after a big meal. I would always say, “ewwwww mom! gross!”. She would always laugh at me and tell me it was good for digestion and that it helped speed up her metabolism. I thought she was insane! Well, you know how the saying goes, “mom knows best”. My mom really did know best. This stuff is truly amazing and works wonders. Here are some of the incredible health benefits that apple cider vinegar has to offer:

-Quick fix for heartburn! Take a dose (1 Tbsp) as soon as you feel the symptoms coming on
