Healthy Habits: Apple Cider Vinegar

The verdict is out on how long it takes to form a habit; psych 101 used to preach 21 days, but newer research espouses 66.  Now that we're well into the 2nd month of the New Year, I'm pausing to revaluate where I am with some of the new healthy habits that I'm trying to form.  Will you join me?
I'm simultaneously surprised and delighted that drinking Apple Cider Vinegar {ACV} has become part of my daily routine.  I'll be the first to admit my pessimism- on January 1, after my first drink, I was not thrilled. However, as weeks have rolled by, its become easier to drink as I started noticing results.  Therefore, I wanted to share with you.

Here are some of the benefits.

I've been drinking 1-2 tablespoons of Bragg's ACV per day, as directed.  My best advice is to drink 1 tablespoon in room temperature water with some honey, 2 times a day.  Or, I've been adding 2 tablespoons to tea every afternoon.

What have I noticed:
I feel immediate relief of upset stomach, it aids digestion and I have noticed a difference in my complexion.

There are articles and research that claim and dispute different things. However, based on my initial positive reaction, I'm going to stick with this for a few more months.  I have also talked to a health coach and she highly recommended this daily ritual. Has anyone else had positive results from drinking ACV?
