If it’s true that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, there must be truth to the belief that apple cider vinegar is a bit of a magic AF potion. So, if there are superfoods, are there superfluids? ;-) Apple cider vinegar unquestionably makes a convincing case. Raw, organic, unfiltered and unpasteurizedACV (apple cider vinegar) is one of the oldest and most useful remedies on Earth. There are so many amazing health benefits from consuming it daily, from helping with diabetes andlowering cholesterol to promoting a healthy gut and clear skin. ACV is definitely one thing I include in my daily diet.

Just two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar along with 30g of cheese before bedtime can contribute to a 4 to 6% decrease in fasting blood sugar levels, according to a 2007 study conducted by Arizona State University. And, according to nutritionist Lisa Guy, apple cider vinegar taken before each meal improves digestion and is helpful to people who have stomach problems such as reflux, indigestion and bloating.

Just keep in mind that you should never drink ACV straight-up as it can burn your esophagus. Instead, mix one tablespoon with 8 ounces of water. Here's a AVC drink I'm loving and drink daily!
