Stomach Acid Saver
Is your stomach acid too low? Do you get reflux? You probably have an issue with stomach acid that is too low, not too high. Does food sit in your stomach after a meal? Do you have a tendency toward constipation? Do your nails have ridges in them? Do you find that you are often tired? I have found that low stomach acid is very common in for people who consume a standard american diet and/or are under moderate to high levels of stress. Here is a simple drink to improve stomach acid:
Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 tsp.
Raw Honey - 2 tsp.
Water - 6-8 ounces
IMPORTANT! THE ONLY APPLE CIDER THAT I RECOMMEND IS BRAGG'S! BRAGG'S IS A RAW APPLE CIDER, SO IT STILL HAS ENZYMES. IT IS CLOUDY IN CONSISTENCY, WHICH IS A POSITIVE THING. DO NOT USED APPLE CIDER THAT HAS BEEN HEATED TO HIGH TEMPERATURES.
Apple Cider Vinegar appears to "prime the pump" that produces stomach acid. My experience has been that patients have improved their digestion in a very short time. Some have even found that they crave the apple cider vinegar after taking it for a few daya.
Drink this 10-15 minutes before each meal. Make larger batches if you wish, but only store them in glass, never in plastic.
