With norovirus on the rise, it’s very important to keep your gut bacteria healthy and nourished with fermented foods and probiotics. It’s also important to create and alkaline environment in the body, because all bacteria and viruses thrive on acid. In order to accomplish this, I drink a very simple drink.
The drink is based on apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar creates an alkaline blood PH, even though it tastes acidic. It is very helpful for stomach flora, for any kind of an upset stomach situation and also for immunity. My family and I drink this apple cider vinegar-based drink every day and when someone gets sick, they drink it every two hours. This drink tastes like lemonade and even small kids love it. Here’s what’s in the magic potion
