Apple cider vinegar and raw honey tonic recipe

Apple cider vinegar and honey each have many healing properties and when combined, the benefits are even greater (read about apple cider benefits and uses below).

ACV and honey are rich in potassium which regulates heartbeat and muscle contraction and thus normalises blood pressure. Both ingredients improve digestion, support friendly gut flora, improve energy and stamina and have a gentle cleansing effect.

This healthy and tasty drink is super easy to make and it takes little time to prepare when you have the ingredients handy.

Ingredients

  • 1 – 1.5 tablespoons of organic, unfiltered and unpasteurised apple cider vinegar – Bragg brand is a good option from supermarkets, health food shops or online.
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons of raw honey (start with 1 teaspoon and increase if desired)
  • A few drops of lemon juice to taste

Dissolve the raw honey in a half a mug of warm but not hot water (hot will water damage the enzymes and vitamins present in honey), cover and leave overnight for the enzymes in raw honey to activate.

In the morning, add apple cider vinegar and lemon juice to the mug, add honey and warm water. Mix well and have it around 20 minutes before breakfast, for best cleansing effect and digestive support.

Important: It’s best to start with 1 teaspoon of the mixture in a glass of water, and increase the dose, as you go.

You may need to get used to the taste at first but your taste buds will adjust pretty quickly. If you wish, you can split the drink into two glasses, and fill them with warm water for a milder taste.

That way you will up your daily water intake and cleanse the digestive system, including the liver, effectively removing the toxins after the body’s overnight repair and restorative work.

Health improving effects of this amazing drink include:

  • Lowers blood pressure by promoting vasodilation (widening of blood vessels)
  • Improves overall gut health and supports good bacteria
  • Provides live enzymes that markedly improve digestion
  • Promotes gentle systemic detoxification daily – important fun
