Apple Cider Vinegar is Not Just for Food

Apple Cider Vinegar is often used for salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, and chutneys, but that’s not all: It’s known to prolong the feeling of satiety after eating, it has well-documented anti-glycemic effects, and quite a few other uses that everyone should know about.
