If you haven't gotten the memo yet, apple cider vinegar is amazing for us. A health world staple for good reason, if you believed the internet, it'd be good for curing—well, just about everything. According to Dr. Vincent Pedre, author of Happy Gut, the rumors might not be far off. "Apple cider vinegar is the one vinegar that is safe to use in patients with yeast overgrowth or candida," Dr. Pedre says. "In fact, its high acetic acid content makes it a great anti-microbial agent for protecting the body against harmful bacteria and yeast. In addition to improving digestion and helping gut health, it has other varied health benefits, including reducing the sugar impact of foods, improving blood sugar and HemoglobinA1c levels as well as blood lipids. It even appears to have the ability to protect against oxidative stress, inhibiting heart-disease promoting lipid oxidation."
