You have a number of options open to you when first looking to include apple cider vinegar in to your daily routine. The best form of ACV to purchase would be an organic un pasteurized bottle. Pill supplements are now available but most sources say they are not as effective as directly drinking the liquid itself. It’s strongly recommended to dilute the apple cider vinegar before drinking. Do this by simply adding two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to and half pint glass of water. If this tastes to sharp for you still add honey or blackstrap molasses which makes the drink far more enjoyable for many people.
If you find you’re unable to ingest the mixture due to the taste, another option would be to mix some apple cider vinegar with hot water and inhale the vapours. This will help to open your nasal passages as well as decrease mucus production and calm allergic reactions.
(warning) inhaling apple cider vinegar to often could have adverse effects after long periods of time.
