Easy on the Apple Cider Vinegar

Proceed with caution

As a die-hard fan of apple cider vinegar, I will sing its praises until the cows come home. I use it on everything from cleaning agents to body care, sunburn care to yes, a daily drink. It helps everything from complexion to indigestion to blood sugar and is a wonderful, cheap part of a healthy lifestyle. Even conventional doctors praise this solution--with a caveat that I've just learned and explains a lot. Drinking ACV by itself can actually be harmful in the long run. Not only can it damage your teeth, but that acid that makes you gag when you drink it can also hurt your esophagus. That explains why it's so nasty going down (hey, I never said I liked the taste)!

The good news is that you can still have some every day, even before every meal if you like, as long as you dilute it. You can add one or two tablespoons to 8 ounces of water. I totally recommend adding lemon, honey, sparkling water or something else to manage the taste even when diluted but it's totally up to you. I add in some Himalayan salt and cream of tartar when I'm fasting but you don't need to do that. There are lots of recipes for ACV drinks online if you are interested, too.

How do you take your ACV? Any great recipes or tips to share?
