see this little beaut?  let me tell you about what's found inside this bottle: it contains nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants your body needs.  it contains caratenoids that can help your eyesight and lower your risk of cancer.  it contains soluble fiber.  it imitates your stomach juices and helps with digestion and metabolism when taken before meals.  it is nearly the exact same pH as your skin, and is also antiseptic and antibacterial.  it is even used to clean operating rooms and equipment to help prevent infection in patients. it can be used to help treat arthritis.

also, it tastes like death. 

todd and i have each started drinking one teaspoon diluted in 8 oz of water, once in the morning and once before dinner.  i started drinking it with a teaspoon of honey mixed in to help temper the taste, but it just tasted like slightly sweetened death.  so i figured, why waste the honey?

instructions: pour yourself a glass of warm water.  don't be fooled into thinking that if you increase the amount of water, it won't taste as bad.  you're kidding yourself.  mix in 1 teaspoon of ACV (make sure it's organic - usually i don't care about organic vs. traditional foods, but it matters in this case - traditional ACV isn't made with the whole apple and the fermenting process has been shortened).

then, plug and chug.

as in, plug your nose, drink it as fast as you can and then drink it faster.  DO NOT under any circumstances unplug your nose before you have taken a few swallows of un-ACV-tainted water.  then grunt, shake your head around, stick out your tongue...whatever it takes to make the nasty taste bearable.   then wait a few hours and repeat.

How long have you been taking this stuff? Just curious if you have noticed any physical changes after taking it. Being that I have a lot of digestive issues I may be interested in trying this!

My cousin and her husband swear by this stuff... I actually have a bottle of that exact ACV in my cupboard... unopened. My cousin's husband just pours it on a spoon and downs it straight. He says "it takes some getting used to"... maybe I'll try it Monday ;-)
