Our 3 must try summer drinks

On a hot summer’s day there’s nothing more perfect than an ice cold drink, right?

Time to swap out the classic alcoholic cocktail for a gut friendly drink that’s beneficial to your health!

the benefits of apple cider vinegar

Packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, polyphenols and more, apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries for many different uses. ACV has been known to help with:

– Easing bloating

– Digestive issues such as IBS

– Lowering your cholesterol.

Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, ACV can be used to help ease symptoms of arthritis and may also help with skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Another great benefit of apple cider vinegar is that it may help to encourage healthy weight loss, too!

How to take your daily dose

Although we have a range of ready-to-drink ACV good gut shots, you are able to drink our unpasteurised apple cider vinegars, too. We recommend diluting the ACV with water and honey (to add a little sweetener to it), alternatively you can add it into your smoothies or create some yummy summer mocktails and shrubs.
