Apple cider vinegar helps eliminate acid reflux. When swallowed, it stimulates the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to close. The LES is a ring of muscles that close to keep acids in the stomach and out of the esophagus. If stomach acid makes it into the esophagus, the acid irritation can cause heartburn and other unpleasant acid reflux symptoms.
Apple cider vinegar not only stimulates the LES to close, it is alkalizing. This means it will help reduce acidity in the body.
Manuka honey has many health benefits and has been included in this recipe to make the apple cider vinegar more palatable.
