Our overall health is significantly determined by our diet, so the frequent intake of processed and refined foods may lead to serious health issues, as they increase the acidity of the body.

The consumption of this mixture will provide numerous health benefits, including:

– It boosts energy levels
– It reduces blood pressure

Why this combination is so successful?
Advantages of the mixture can be explained by looking at their chemical properties and interaction with the body. Many experts believe that we become sick when acidity is increased in our body (pH below 7).
Vinegar is naturally acidic, but when consumed, becomes alkaline. Honey also has a low pH, but at the moment of consumption, alkalinity in the body raises.
These two substances are the perfect solution to eliminate excessive acidity caused by a stressful lifestyle and consumption of unhealthy foods and drinks. Our bodies function the best and healthiest when the pH value of the body is between 7.0 and 7.4, slightly alkaline.
This is how to prepare the mixture:
– 1 teaspoon Pure natural honey
– 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
– 1 cup of clean water
In a glass, mix well the ingredients, and leave the drink for 20 minutes.
Consume this drink on an empty stomach, before your breakfast.
Warning: You should have in mind that consuming high amounts of apple cider vinegar may result in low potassium levels and bone density. Also the vinegar may interact with diuretic, laxatives and medicine for diabetes and heart diseases. If you plan to use it for long time the best is to consult your doctor of pharmacist.
