Drinking this elixir first thing in the morning is extremely cleansing for your body. It will kick start your digestion for the day, and can even aid in weight loss by boosting your metabolism.
The secret ingredient is, of course, apple cider vinegar. In its raw form it's a nutritional powerhouse. Just make sure you buy one that says "raw" and/or "with the mother".

- 2 tablespoons raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
