Apple Cider Vinegar has a host of benefits for your health including being a good cleansing aid, weight loss, reducing insulin levels and many more less proven benefits, so something we would definitely recommend incorporating in your diet.

If you have reflux or stomach issues apple cider vinegar can help with digestion taken before meals.
