HEALTH BENEFITS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Apple cider vinegar is known to be a traditional folk medicine and is also considered one of the best home remedies. It is rich in minerals, such as potassium, sodium, chloride, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium, and trace minerals like, copper, fluorine, as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and E, bioflavonoids, and pectin and has many health benefits. Apple cider vinegar can help clear skin blemishes and conditions like acne and age spots, help eliminate toxins in the body, promote digestion and bowel movement. It can also help increase strength and improve stamina, relieve joint pain and stiffness, lower high cholesterol levels, and improve metabolism. There must be some truth to the old wise saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!” We believe it! (Source: MD-Health)
