Apple Cider Vinegar improves digestion and adds soluble fiber, which assists in the reduction of excess weight. It can also help eat up the starches when you eat grains and helps block the absorption of calories.
There are a number of flavored variations on the market but make sure you check the ingredient list and use organic. Drink 1 ounce 20 minutes before each meal.
Regular Apple Cider Vinegar all by itself may be less than desirable but now you can drink it on a regular basis in this yummy recipe.
