Lemon water vs apple cider vinegar

by Norma

What is healthier drinking lemon in water or apple cider vinegar in water on a daily basis?


The short answer is that I don’t think one is necessarily healthier than the other. They both have similar properties as well as unique ingredients and properties.

In addition, the degree of benefits of one vs the other depends somewhat on the current health condition of the individual and what they are trying to achieve.

Similar benefits of lemon in water and apple cider vinegar in water include:

1. Anti-bacterial properties
2. Alkaliziing effects in the body
3. Digestion and elimination improvements
4. Detoxification processes

Some of the unique ingredients found in apple cider vinegar include potassium, calcium, acetic acid, pectin, malic acid and alkaline ash.

Lemons are excellent sources of vitamins C and A, folic acid, flavonoids, limonoids, antioxidants and potassium.

Thus, I recommend taking both a glass of lemon water and a glass of raw apple cider vinegar in water every day.

The type of apple cider vinegar is very important. I personally use and recommend Bragg’s organic raw apple cider vinegar.
