Honey + Vinegar = Natural Detox

Did you know that honey and vinegar have been used together since 5th century BC?  It’s been noted that Hippocrates, father of medicine, used this combo for its health properties.  Why, might you ask?  Vinegar is good for the body; scientific studies have demonstrated that it helps curb the appetite, balance the system and it also has antimicrobial properties.

You’ve probably heard that tea has health benefits as well…it contains polyphenols which vinegar also contains.  Additional scientific studies have concluded that polyphenols reduce the risk of illness.  Pretty cool. A Simple Health Tonic

  1. Water
  2. 1 teaspoon Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
  3. 1 teaspoon Raw, unprocessed honey

I like to add the vinegar to a small glass of water, and drink slowly as I eat the honey from the spoon in between sips.  You could add the honey to the water & vinegar if you prefer. This is an acquired taste, so be patient and give it time to adjust.  Also, don’t overdo it with the vinegar as it could upset your stomach.  A little goes a long way.  🙂 Be Well, Nicole
