When taken separately, honey and apple cider vinegar have a positive impact on health. But when combined, their healing properties are amplified, so that a drink made from honey and apple cider vinegar has an outstanding contribution to health.

Honey has long been used in the folk medicine. In modern times its healing effect on a stomach ulcers and duodenum has been clinically tested, as well as antibiotic and healing properties (inflammation of the throat and wounds that do not heal easily). Apple cider vinegar is an excellent source of potassium (important for the regulation of blood pressure), and helps digestion. And this is what their combination makes for health. Here’s what their combination is beneficial for health:

Reduces inflammation

Research suggests that a combination of apple cider vinegar and honey reduces inflammation of low intensity throughout the body. This contributes to health in two ways. The first and more obvious way is that it can assist in the treatment of chronic inflammation such as ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease) and arthritis (an inflammatory disease of the joints). Second, the reduction of inflammatory processes in the body contributes to the prevention of serious diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Improves digestion

The combination of honey and apple cider vinegar improves digestion. Although it has sour taste, it helps to reduce stomach acidity and heartburn! It also acts as a mild laxative, contributes to better “lazy bowel” movements and helps prevent constipation. Furthermore, it contributes to the health of the oral cavity (antimicrobial properties) and eliminating bad breath.

Promotes weight loss

Since it improves digestion and promotes bowel movements, this drink is beneficial for weight loss diets.

Contributes to heart health

Studies have shown that a combination of honey and apple cider vinegar contributes to improving cholesterol levels, as well as the relationship between “good” and “bad” cholesterol. Also, this powerful drink contributes to a slight decrease in blood pressure, which is good in preventing heart disease.
