Cider vinegar

It could be described as a panacea for all ills as cider vinegar can help you lose weight, treat and prevent arthritis and calm your digestive system.

Cider vinegar is an age-old remedy that really works for a variety of health problems. It is particularly recognised for soothing arthritis by changing the acid environment of the body. Like many acidic foods (such as citrus fruits) cider vinegar is alkaline in the body. Arthritis thrives in an acidic body, although citrus fruits are not good for arthritis.

It’s also good for the digestion, improving irritable bowel and constipation, can help to soothe bladder infections, headaches, migraine, and sore throats,and keep blood pressure at a healthy level. Because it’s not a medicine it is worth trying it to see if it works, but if problems are long-standing it won’t miraculously go away in a few days. So persist with the cider vinegar before meals for over four weeks before deciding it doesn’t work.

Cider vinegar is cheap (around £3 a bottle for organic), easy to take and available in the supermarket.
