The unexpected health trend you need to know about this summer
If you were to tell your friends that you were about to drink a revitalising bottle of vinegar, they’d assume you were either joking or had lost a bet. ‘What do you do for an encore?’ they might reason. ‘Down a bottle of ketchup?’
However, apple cider drinking vinegar is one of the latest breakthroughs in healthy living. And, unlike certain health fads, this looks like it’s here to stay. Health experts, celebrity fans and researchers have been queuing up to extol the virtues of the trend taking the world of nutrition by storm.
Firstly, Comvita’s drinking vinegar has a delicious lip-smacking taste. It packs a sharp, invigorating and pleasingly bracing taste that acts like a metaphorical slap across the face. It’s perfect for a mid-morning pick-me-up, or for someone looking for an energising kick towards the end of the working day.
It also includes delicious manuka honey, which gives it a sweet edge to nicely balance the acidity of the vinegar. It’s also ready to drink and is ideal for anyone who’s constantly on-the-go.
And, crucially, the health benefits are plentiful. Research shows that apple cider vinegar aids blood sugar control thanks to the acetic acid in the vinegar. That same acetic acid is also said to satiate hunger, which is ideal for anyone who struggles with snacking in between meals.
It’s best served chilled, which makes it a great summer drink. And for anyone struggling with a summer cold, the winning combination of vinegar and manuka honey makes for a swift one-two when combating germs, thanks to potassium, magnesium and enzymes.
You’ll be able to find it in Comvita, priced at £2.99
