From aiding weight loss to reducing sugar cravings and even tackling spots, the benefits of apple cider vinegar are far-reaching. It is a gentle detoxifier, aids metabolism and is a source of amino acids.
The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar not only boosts the immune system, but it is also an effective antiseptic and antibiotic.
This recipe for an ACV Tonic will help you get your mornings started off on the right foot.
Prep: 10 minutes
- 1 tsp fresh turmeric juice (about 3cm/1¼ inch piece of fresh turmeric root), or ½ tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp ginger juice (about 2cm/¾ inch piece of fresh root ginger)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- Pinch of black pepper
- 60ml water
- Raw Honey (to taste)
Put the turmeric, ginger, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar into a mug. Add a pinch of pepper (only a very small amount of black pepper is needed as it can be really powerful and overwhelming if you use too much).
Fill a quarter of the mug with cold water, then top up with hot water so that the water is just warm. This is important to preserve the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Stir well and serve.
Sweeten with honey to taste.
