What are the top 5 Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?


1. It’s a fermented food rich with probiotics!

ACV is fermented, thus is has probiotic benefits that help feed your good gut bacteria. This is especially important for a healthy immune system and overall strong constitution.

2. It supports digestion.

Taking one of these shots in water before a meal can help boost your gastric juices which allows you to better absorb nutrients from your food.

3. It can aid in weight loss

Because it supports healthy digestion, it can help to regulate appetite and aid in weight loss. One study cites that consuming vinegar helps to reduce belly fat. and support weight loss.

4. It contains amino acids and antioxidants

Apple cider vinegar is real, whole food, with real food benefits like antioxidants.

5. It also has many topical benefits.

This particular recipe is for consumption, but ACV has tons of topical uses as well. It works great as a toner for your skin, and I use it to remove product build up from my hair with this ACV hair wash!


Very Important… You Must Dilute These Shots in Water!

This is a very important note about these shots, and every ACV shot… YOU MUST DILUTE IT. You cannot take ACV straight or it will burn your esophagus and cause inflammation.

These shots are a bit more diluted as they’re flavored with other juices and not just straight ACV, however, they still need to be diluted. You can make it nice and fancy with sparkling water, or keep it simple with still water.

Now that that’s out of the way… let’s talk about the flavors of these shots!


The Flavors of These Shots…

These DIY ACV shots are not just straight ACV! They’re flavored with other fruits and spices to add more flavor and nutrients!  While fruit juice in excess isn’t necessarily health food, these shots only feature a few tablespoons of fresh juice and no added sugar.

  • Orange Cranberry. A classic flavor combination for this time of year!
  • Orange Turmeric Ginger. Turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory powerhouses that pair perfectly with the benefits of ACV.
  • Pomegranate Lemon. Pomegranate juice is super nutrient-dense and antioxidant-rich. The lemon flavor pairs well with the pomegranate and ACV.
