Why I Drink Apple Cider Vinegar Everyday


“Why in the world would you do that?”

It’s the response that I get most often when I tell people I drink (imbibe, consume, etc.) apple cider vinegar everyday. Admittedly, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is sour, acidic, and downright acrid.

Last summer, my chiropractor here in Des Moines first suggested that I use ACV in a “homemade Gatorade” before runs. Regular sports drinks are chock-full of sugar and the electrolytes they promise are “dead” by the time they get to you anyway. I was getting dehydrated after long runs so I thought, “Why not?”

Not to be trifled with.

I tried it (ACV, water, and honey) and loved it. I became more of a purist as the summer went on. Which finally led to the ritual you’ll see below. This is the routine I follow nearly everyday.
