You must have heard about the many benefits of apple cider vinegar. This natural tonic is known for melting belly fat and easing digestion.

The yeast converts sugar into alcohol which is further fermented into acetic acid with the addition of bacteria. Now the acetic acid is a weak acid but is fairly strong when concentrated. So it is suggestive to dilute this tonic and then consume it.
