Should you drink apple cider vinegar?

Instantly the idea of drinking vinegar seems bizarre, of course, I am not suggesting you drink a bottle neat. That would be silly.

Adding a little apple cider vinegar to drinks can actually be good for you. Using apple cider vinegar in a drink is the best way to drink apple cider vinegar and enjoy it.

I must admit when I first discovered how many benefits there are of apple cider vinegar I was surprised. I am sure you will be too.

Many people claim it can do all sorts but the reality is there are only a few things with evidence. It can also be used for cleaning!

Choosing the best apple cider vinegar

If possible, the best apple cider vinegar is one with mother. This gives the vinegar a bit of a cloudy appearance because it includes proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria.

It is often believed that this substance is what makes apple cider vinegar healthy. There is no evidence to support this that I can find.

Some people drink apple cider vinegar mixed with water and honey as a drink. I think this is much tastier and also gives you the benefits of cranberries!

  1. Cider vinegar is one of those things that I buy for one recipe and then never use the rest… although this recipe only contains 1tsp of it, I am certainly not going to be wasting any more vinegar. What a delicious recipe – thank you for sharing!
