People with existing stomach ulcers, GERD, or acid reflux may consider avoiding apple cider vinegar for this reason.

Organic, cold-pressed apple cider vinegar contains a substance called “must.” Must is the bits and pieces of the apple that are fermenting in the liquid. This is what holds the “mother,” which is a colony of bacteria that work as probiotics when you consume the liquid.

The acid in apple cider vinegar helps in thinning of the mucus in the throat. This helps the mucus in moving out of the respiratory system more quickly. Loosening phlegm means recovery. Moreover, the acid in apple cider vinegar works to kill pathogens.
