Let’s look at how you can use these two wonderful natural ingredients together to experience all of their great benefits. All of the ACV and honey health benefits in this article are backed up by scientific research.
Improves joint health and alleviates joint pain
Regular consumption of apple cider vinegar and honey can help to manage and naturally reduce inflammation that causes joint pain. This makes apple cider vinegar and honey a helpful home remedy for arthritis and other inflammatory conditions that affect joints.
A study published in 2004 found that consuming ACV had a “considerable effect on controlling chronic pain and inflammation.”6
A more recent study from 2011 found that the anti-inflammatory properties of honey can help to treat arthritis pain and other acute and chronic inflammatory conditions.
Heartburn / acid reflux relief
Drinking ACV along with honey can give you natural relief from the symptoms of heartburn like a burning sensation in your stomach after eating. Both apple cider vinegar and honey help to balance stomach acid and honey has an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on the esophagus.
A study found that ACV showed comparable results to antacids and alleviated heartburn symptoms. The researchers said that it may be useful for people who don’t respond well to antacid heartburn treatment.8
The Indian Journal of Medical Research reported that the medicinal properties of honey can assist in reducing acid reflux symptoms. The soothing properties of honey on the throat and esophagus also help to reduce irritation.9
