Many people suffer from indigestion and use antacids for relief. However, many times the trouble isn't too much stomach acid, but too little. If you want to lose weight, the next time you get indigestion, try adding a couple of teaspoons of ACV to a small glass of water and drinking it down. Add a little stevia to sweeten if necessary. If this cures your indigestion, it's because you didn't have enough stomach acid to begin with and taking antacids was exactly the wrong thing to do.
If you have constant indigestion, then your body isn't digesting the foods you eat properly and you aren't getting optimum nutrition from even the healthiest diet. Apple cider vinegar helps you lose weight by making sure you digest all the food you eat and actually use it, so it isn't stored as fat.
I've been using apple cider vinegar for weightloss, drinking a tablespoon mixed with water every evening after dinner and sometimes at other times during the day as well and so far, I've lost 3 pounds without doing anything else different in my diet.
Apple cider vinegar is a simple and inexpensive weightloss tool. It's nutritious and good for so many things.
