Many people worldwide swear by apple cider vinegar, saying the acid can help digestion and the yeast (or “the mother” can act as a natural probiotic. However, researchers haven’t done enough scientific study around these claims.
That said, if you are curious and want to try it, you can.
Use a small amount, such as a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and dilute it into a warm mug of water before or after a meal. While there’s very little research to support health claims tied to apple cider vinegar, the risk of trying it is generally low.
