Apple Cider Vinegar Rules

There are a number of reasons people around the web praise the benefits of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar.  Some of these include for weight loss, clearer skin, and general detoxification.  A very detailed post about the many benefits can be found here.

I’ve been curious about trying it for many of these reasons, especially given the fact that I have inflammation issues from my Hashimoto’s.  All the positive reviews finally got to me and I decided to give it a shot.

My first reservation was over the taste.  Let’s face it, drinking vinegar doesn’t exactly bring to mind thoughts of champagne glasses and sugar cubes.  The recipe on the bottle 1-2 teaspoons of the vinegar in a glass of water, and to sweeten it with raw honey.  Luckily, I’d just replenished my local raw honey stash at the farmers’ market this weekend.

The honey is a bit thicker, so it took a lot of stirring to get it mixed well.  Then I was worried about it being slimy or something.  I’m a big chicken like that.  Once it was all stirred I braced myself and drank it down.

I have to say it’s really not bad.  I’d probably use a little more raw honey next time, though.  It’s got an unusual taste, sort of like a tart, unsweetened apple juice.  According to the bottle, you’re to do this three times a day.  It’s natural and not bad for you, so why not?  I’ll give it a try and see how I feel after a week or so.
