Pop, pop, fizz, fizz…
If this jingle has been your mantra, yet there’s no relief in sight, you might want to ditch that tune, and sing a new ditty.
It goes like this:
Yes, acid reflux is actually a result of depleted stomach acids. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) mimics the acid level in your stomach so foods can be easily digested and not forced back up the oesophagus, resulting in a burning sensation in the throat.
Of course, apple cider vinegar does more than just help a sore tummy. It balances the body’s acid-alkaline pH levels and infuses the blood with oxygen. Result? An enhanced immune system.
Make sure the ACV bottle you pick up has “With the Mother” on the label. This unusual phrase means that the ball of enzymes that floats in the apple cider vinegar is alive and well. It’s actually a colony of beneficial bacteria.
‘The Mother’ is crammed with goodness and is a large part of why ACV has so many beneficial properties. But, please—make sure the ACV you buy is unpasteurized, and with no additives, or it will be useless.
Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (With the Mother) is widely available at most Health Food Stores and at the Bulk Barn.
Next time you have an urge to repeat the old jingle, ditch it and switch to the new, but tried and true.
Simple: mix and drink!
