ACV has a multitude of personal testimonals. It has been known to cure allergies (including pet, food and environmental), sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux,
sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout. Apple Cider Vinegar also breaks down fat and is widely used to lose weight. It has also been reported that a daily dose of apple cider vinegar in water has high blood pressure under control in two weeks!
Begin with one tsp. Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar and work up to one tablespoon nightly.
Add one tsp. raw honey (optional - I prefer my dose in my morning tea)
8 oz. of hot water
Mix and sip until gone. Once you get used to this, you will never be without your Braggs. More information concerning The Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar can be found here.
