The Daily Tonic
Promote good gut health each morning with 1-4 teaspoons into a large glass of water in the morning. Don’t take it straight! – dilution is good. As apple cider vinegar is acidic, it can be harsh on your oesophagus if you take it as a shot.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a prebiotic that promotes digestive health with its gut-friendly bacteria and pectin. Prebiotics are the compounds that promote the growth of probiotics, that are excellent for overall gut health. It also contains ‘the mother’ – a naturally occurring sediment within the bottle that is a storehouse of important minerals, essential amino acids and enzymes.
The Daily Tonic can help ease digestion, regulate blood pressure, balance cholesterol, boost nutrient absorption and increase your energy levels.
Liven up any salad and get your daily dose of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar at the same time. The acetic acid in the vinegar also increases the body’s absorption of important minerals and nutrients from the leafy greens and salad vegetables.
