Sailboat Galley – Hot Apple Cider

Apple cider and apple juice are both made from fresh apples. The big difference is that cider isn’t filtered, isn’t pasteurized, and isn’t sweetened. Apple juice, on the other hand, is filtered so that it’s clear, pasteurized so that it stays good much longer, and is often sweetened.

Apple cider contains polyphenols, which are compounds in plants that act as antioxidants. They can help the body to fight against free radicals and cell damage, lowering your risk of certain types of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Polyphenols also help to ease inflammation in the body.

Taking a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning on an empty stomach is one practice that many wellness gurus claim helps you lose weight, reduce hunger, and remove toxins from your system.
