1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (organic, unfiltered, that contains the “mother”)
1 tablespoon organic lemon juice (not from concentrate)
1 1/2 cups soda water
Instructions

In order to protect the enamel of the teeth, it is recommended to use a straw while drinking it. If you have troubles getting used to its taste at first, you can add a 1/4 cup of cran-raspberry juice to it to enrich the taste.

Note that you can use distilled white vinegar for laundry and cleaning, but choose the unprocessed, organic variety, that contains the “mother” for health purposes.

To help you pick the best quality, organic, raw and unfiltered ACV, we will distinguish the following varieties:

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

This means that the apple cider vinegar does not contain any genetically modified organisms and synthetic additives that can actually do more harm than good in terms of your health.

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Raw apple cider vinegar is unheated and unprocessed variety, which has preserved the “mother” intact and contains a cluster of proteins, enzymes and beneficial bacteria which are otherwise removed during processing.

Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

You should choose unfiltered apple cider vinegar for most apple cider vinegar uses, as the process of filtration eliminates the mother as well as any sediment, leaving behind a clear, amber vinegar.

Yet, you should always use it in moderation, to prevent low potassium levels, and consult your physician before you start using it if you take diabetes and heart disease medicines, as well as diuretics and laxatives.

Therefore, start using apple cider vinegar on a daily basis, since it is incredibly powerful, and will improve your living in so many different ways!
