Why You Should Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Daily

So a few months ago I heard a lot of people online start raving about apple cider vinegar and the countless health benefits associated with it. I was immediately interested in learning more and started to research into it further.


Let's just say since then I've been hooked! And yes of course drinking apple cider vinegar tastes rank, but honestly if you can get past the bad taste then there are plenty of amazing benefits that in my opinion make it so worth it!

How I Drink It

When I started taking apple cider vinegar everyday, I used to take 2 teaspoons of straight apple cider vinegar in the mornings. It tasted disgusting but it was bearable and the taste was over quickly. However after a few mornings I realised I experienced a little burning sensation in my throat when I took it, it wasn't an awful pain but I thought there must be better ways to drink apple cider vinegar daily. In addition drinking it straight can cause erosion of tooth enamel which isn't great either.

I watched a few videos of people who added apple cider vinegar to water to drink it so it was slightly diluted, however the thought of the vinegar taste being diluted into a drink that took longer to drink didn't sound too great to me. Instead I've found my ideal way of drinking my apple cider vinegar...

I now drink my apple cider vinegar everyday in the evenings before bed.

The Drink

- Half of a lemon -
- 2 tbsps. of apple cider vinegar -
- 1 tsp. of honey -
- 1 cup of boiling water -

1. Cut up the half of a lemon and add it into a mug.
2. Add 2 tbsps. of apple cider vinegar.
3. Boil a kettle of water.
4. Add 1 tsp. of honey if you are after a sweeter taste.
5. Once the water is boiled, fill the rest of the mug.
6. Leave the drink to stew for some minutes (the longer you leave it the stronger the taste of the lemon will come through)
7. Drink and (try to...) enjoy!

I am not claiming that this drink is sweet and delicious, however I find it much more bearable and enjoyable to drink rather than plain or diluted apple cider vinegar. Obviously there are many health benefits of lemons and honey too which boosts the health value of this drink.
