Apple cider vinegar is full of minerals, particularly potassium, vitamins, enzymes and amino acids. Research shows that suppresses your body fat accumulation by increasing enzyme activity in the liver.

As we approach winter and the holiday season, our bodies start to ask for more calories. If you want to keep your body healthy and give your system a rest and a boost of nutrients, you need to detox.

The amount of water that you need to drink depends on what you eat. If you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables that are naturally high in water, you will probably drink less. If you eat a lot of pasta and meat, you will probably need more.
