There are many benefits of Honey but if you mix it with Apple cider vinegar (ACV) and if you consume them your health will improve. If you mix these two the results become even more healthy.
If you consume them together, you’re likely to get the following benefits:

- Acid reflux and heartburn relief
- Improved digestive health, including help with constipation
- Weight loss
- Reduced cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure
- Gives you more energy
- Better condition of the skin
- Reducing infections.
Why is the combination of ACV & honey so successful?
The great benefits of the mixture can be explained by looking at their chemical properties and interactions with the body. Many experts believe that we become ill when our bodies turn overly acidic (pH below 7). Vinegar is naturally acidic, but when consumed, it turns alkaline. Honey, too, has a low pH, but raises the alkalinity of the body once eaten.
The two substances are a perfect way to get rid of excessive acidityand building an internal environment with a protective pH. We are healthiest when our body’s pH is between 7.0 and 7.4.
How to make ACV & honey healing drink
Honey and ACV that have not been processed, thus have maintained all their nutritional properties, appear cloudy. Also, check the label and go for ACV with the ‘mother of vinegar’, which can be seen as a pulp on the bottom of the bottle.
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 1 teaspoon ACV (if you can tolerate the taste, increase the dosage to up to 1 tablespoon)
- 8 oz. warm water (1 glass)
You might initially struggle with the potent taste, but once you experience the benefits, you’ll most likely want to stick with the mix.
When to drink a mixture of ACV and honey?
It’s best to drink the mixture on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning. Consume it about 30 minutes before you eat. Be consistent and drink it on a daily basis.
You can increase the intake to two, or even three, times a day, depending on your needs and tolerance for taste. It is best to test it for yourself and see how you feel, although if you consume lot of ACV may cause low potassium levels and lowers bone density. Also ACV may interact with diuretics, laxatives, and medicines for diabetes and heart disease, so if you’re planning to use it on a daily basis make sure to consult your doctor to avoid interactions with the medicines you’re taking.
