Suffering from joint pain caused by arthritis? Apple cider vinegar is one of the oldest joint-pain remedies in the book, and you'll find that it can help you to deal with your achy joints! The reason that ACV is so effective for dealing with pain is due to the fact that it contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. Potassium helps to reduce water retention in the body, so it will drain excess water/fluid from around the joints. It can also help to stop calcium from building up around your joints, a problem that can often lead to stiffness.

Those with autoimmune disorders often suffer from digestive distress, which can lead to malnutrition and mineral deficiencies. Add a few tablespoons of natural, organic apple cider vinegar to a pitcher of water, and drink it down throughout the day to help deal with your joint pain!
