Apple cider vinegar is popular in the healthy living realm. It is used to clean the house, clean the body, and support health internally. While it may seem like it is overhyped, it really isn’t. Apple cider vinegar is truly amazing. Personally, I have been drinking it every morning for years and will triple up the dose when I get sick. Today I’m going to share with you 5 reasons you should join my morning ritual and drink raw apple cider vinegar every day.
5 Reasons To Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Daily
Apple cider vinegar increases the ph in the stomach and this is a good thing! We need a highly acidic stomach to break down food effectively. When food is broken down completely we get the most nutrition out of the foods we are consuming, and are less likely to experience bloating, gas, heartburn, and constipation.
Apple cider vinegar is a common home remedy to tackle nail fungus, acne, and cleaning around the home. However, drinking ACV daily will also help kill harmful bacteria that enters the body, thus helping you stay healthy.
Helps Regulate Blood Sugar Levels
Studies show that consuming apple cider vinegar before a high-carb meal will improve insulin sensitivity by 19-34% and reduce fasting blood sugar by 4%. This is beneficial for everyone, not just those who are prediabetic or type 2 diabetic. No one wants a blood sugar crash an hour after eating!
Aids in Weight Loss
Along with regulating blood sugar levels, consuming apple cider vinegar before meals will actually help you feel fuller, faster. On top of that, studies show that a person will consume about 200 calories less per day. While this isn’t significant, when it comes to weight loss and maintaining weight, every little bit helps!
Preliminary studies show that consuming apple cider vinegar daily may help lower triglycerides, reduce oxidation in LDL cholesterol, and possibly help lower blood pressure.
How To Take It
My favorite way to consume apple cider vinegar is in my apple cider vinegar tonic. I started drinking it this way about 6 years ago. At first, it probably won’t taste good not going to lie, but after a week or so, you won’t taste the vinegar anymore. I like to drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, but some people prefer to drink it 30 minutes before every meal, or right before bed. There is no bad time of day to drink it, although, it is best to drink it on an empty stomach.

I’ve heard that pasteurized apple cider vinegar doesn’t give the same benefits as organic, do you know?
That’s true. Raw contains all the probiotics and enzymes while pasteurization kills all that beneficial, good stuff.
I have heard of all the benefits of apple cider vinegar but have never been brave enough to try it. Most people I know take shots of it but your tonic sounds MUCH better!
Shots burn! I think the tonic tastes so much better and it’s become part of my morning routine. I make it then sip on it while I get ready for the day.
I have heard so many good things about Apple Cider Vinegar but sadly haven’t tested it myself. I always wanted to try using a little bit to help with my weight but wasn’t sure how to use it. I heard misuse can result in severe health conditions as well. Already have my cinnamon which I love and also honey. Just to get a bottle of ACV now and put it to the test. Thanks so much for sharing this.
Great tonic recipe, looking forward to trying it! I’ve personally experienced reduced heart burn, weight loss and it also helps to fight the common cold for my little ones!
I find the benefits of apple cider vinegar amazing. I wish more people new about and would give it a shot.
Very interesting! Apple cider vinegar is also low-FODMAP, which is one of my sets of food sensitivities. Do you know if it will have the same effects if I switch out the honey in your tonic for maple syrup? Honey is not low-FODMAP. Thanks!
Well honey has anti-microbial properties that maple syrup doesn’t but swapping with maple syrup will help with balancing out the flavors like honey does.
Thank you–my digestion can’t tolerate honey. I will give this a try!
YES! It’s a part of my daily routine:)
Great post! I’ve been doing this when I feel run down, but really need to make it a daily routine.
Great piece! I had just starting drinking some every day after my mom recommended it to me. Definitely hoping the taste will eventually go away. Haha. But I can feel its impact already.
Oh I love this! Thanks for sharing your tonic recipe. I am a apple cider vinegar drinker too, I take 1 tsp with warm water every morning on a empty stomach. I have it to help with digestion.
I’ve been adding acv to my tea for some time now, and when I’m sick I’ll just take shots of it. It’s great!
I have brought the apple cider vinegar and I only put it in the salad. I have not drink the tonic myself and as you said, I just could not stand the sour taste of it despite there are many health benefits. Honey might balance the sour flavor.
I’ve been drinking it and having it in my daily salads for the past 2 years. I couldn’t pinpoint the exact benefits since it’s been part of an entire dietary overhaul, but after researching it extensively, it can only help!
I drink it every day and it has definitely helped with my digestion. I think it’s helped a little bit with weight loss too. It really is a wonder drink!
I need to start doing this to help with a little weight loss. My mom used to do this and swore by it. I’m starting a new workout routine today, so today would be a great day to start this!
I never knew there are so many benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar regularly. I am going to start on it now..
Oh wow, I had no idea this lowers cholesterol. I actually have high cholesterol so this is something I need to try. Thanks for sharing!
I have some apple cider vinegar in my pantry, I should drink it more often. Sometimes I find the taste too bitter so it’s a great idea to add lemon juice and honey. Thank you for sharing!
Ive heard apple cider vinegar is really good for you but I never tried it! How does it taste like? You said you can’t really taste the vinegar so is it just just flat apple cider? I am gonna have to try it one day, hopefully ill like it 🙂
I am a big ACV drinker as well and consume it at least once a day! I like mixing it into a La Croix.
Last year I convinced my parents to start taking apple cider vinegar to help regulate their blood sugar and they were hooked! I think I should start taking it too, it has lots of amazing health benefits.
I want to give this a try. My stomach has been a mess lately and I am looking for something that will help. Thanks for the info.
I think you’ll be amazed at how much it helps. I just recommend starting with a tsp and working your way up from there.
Wow I never knew it had so many health benefits!! It’s so amazing what products like this can do. Definitely worth it for all these benefits
I’ve been drinking apple cider vinegar each morning for a while! I usually mix with a squeeze of lemon and some cayenne!
I knew some of the benefits of apple cider vinegar, but I didn’t realize that it had an effect on insulin sensitivity.
I had no idea that it helped regulate your blood sugar. That is amazing!
I had no idea that apple cider vinegar had so many health benefits. Thanks for the great information and recipe. I can’t wait to try it!
I’ve always heard of the benefits but personally never tried it. I think I might give it a shot.
