Drinking apple cider vinegar
Drinking vinegar for medicinal reasons has been around for centuries and many people swear by it to help reduce weight, support gut health and reduce blood sugar. We’re not talking the vinegar you splash on your chips – apple cider vinegar has a rounded flavour and products such as the raw, unfiltered Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (sold in Holland & Barrett) is made with mother of vinegar. Waitrose saw sales of apple cider vinegar rise 60% this year.
It’s best to check with a medical professional before drinking vinegar on a regular basis – highly acidic, vinegar can destroy teeth enamel, cause burns in your throat and upset your stomach, so it must be diluted. Check out your local deli for new drinking vinegars emerging this year.
