Need a cheap easy way to stimulate your digestive juices and improve your stomach acid production so you can better digest your foods? Try this...
Half a glass of warm (not hot) filtered water (I like mine quite warm so will mix boiled water with filtered tap water).
1 teaspoon of Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (I use Braggs organic - shake before use)
Juice of half a lemon (I then add the lemon slices)
1/4 t grated fresh or frozen ginger (optional)
Ginger is great if you get nausea, it also soothes the digestive tract and is supposed to help with gastrointestinal motility. The rhythmic motions of the gastrointestinal tract are essential to move the contents along the gut.
The bitter taste will help stimulate the stomach to produce hydrochloric acid which is needed to activate the digestive enzyme pepsin from pepsinogen.
Don't just down the drink but SIP it until you feel the stomach warm.
This can also be a great morning cleansing drink, just before breakfast.
