This apple cider vinegar and honey mixture is a true magic potion for your health. Here’s what this mixture can treat.
For hundreds of years, honey has been used for treating some milder diseases. Honey is rich in antioxidants and it also has anti-inflammatory properties. This food is used to relieve pain in the throat and heartburn. Apple vinegar, in turn, is used in treating digestive problems, it also helps in burning fat and it eases the joint pain.
These are the effects when the vinegar and honey are consumed separately, but when these two ingredients are mixed, the effects are twice as good. So, mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, a teaspoon of honey and a cup of water and drink this mixture every morning on an empty stomach, 20 to 30 minutes before breakfast.
Experts say that this drink relieves the joint pain, it can also be used in treating various inflammations, heartburn, problems with digestion, with infection. In addition, regular consumption of this drink increases your energy levels, regulates the hypertension, prevents many skin diseases, it eliminates the bad breath and it a great fighter against obesity.
The reason why this mixture is so good is that both of the components, the honey and the vinegar, become alkaline in the body, which means that they are increasing the pH value, and thereby are increasing the body’s resistance to bacteria and diseases.
The increased pH value is particularly important when the immune system is inferior or when you have consumed a lot of processed foods. On the other hand, meat, sugar and processed foods lower the pH value of the organism.
Note that you should not drink a lot of this drink – no more than a cup a day – because it can affect the bone density and reduce the level of potassium. Also, people who have diabetes or drink some medicine for heart diseases, should not drink this drink without consulting their doctor.
