We have all had in acid reflux at some time in our lives. It is the burning sensation right above the stomach and in the food tract. The common word for it is Heart burn. You must have noticed certain foods make it particularly bad for you. The food that we eat passes through our food pipe into the oesophagus.
From where it finally gets into the stomach. There is a vent between the oesophagus and stomach which remains closed as the digestion takes place in the stomach. At times, due to unknown reasons or intake of wrong type of food items this vent begins to open up and the acid from the stomach starts rising up the stomach.
This gives out that burning sensation. Now it sounds crazy to add Apple cider Vinegar to that acid, however, use it to believe the result. What actually happens is that this vinegar is much lesser acidic then the hydrochloric acid in our stomach and therefore its intake balances the acidity not only in the stomach but also the body. Just a spoonful of unprocessed vinegar mixed in half a glass of water will do the trick!
