Why is the mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar & honey so successful?
The health benefits of the mixture can be explained only by looking at their chemical properties and their interactions with the body. Researches have shown that we become ill when our bodies turn overly acidic (pH below 7). Therefore vinegar is naturally acidic, but when consumed, it turns alkaline. Honey, too, has a low pH, but raises the alkalinity of the body once eaten.
The two substances together are a perfect way to get rid of excessive acidity (resulting from unhealthy foods and drinks and stressful lifestyle) and building an strong internal environment with a protective pH. Our bodies function at their best when the body’s pH is between 7.0 and 7.4, so slightly alkaline.
