The site I took this recipe from, RainingHotCoupons.com, gave the following description to describe the benefits of each ingredient. This is what it says:
…Apple Cider Vinegar!… This is SO good for you and you can see ALL of the reasons and 20 Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar (Weight Loss, Acne, Hair, Skin, and MORE!).
Cinnamon… Cinnamon helps boost your metabolism, regulates blood sugar, stops food cravings. Cinnamon actually imitates the activity of insulin and increases the metabolism of glucose. Since high blood sugar levels can lead to increased storage of fat by the body, it helps prevent this and helps you to lose weight. Cinnamon is rich in manganese, iron, calcium and fiber.
Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to help with weight-loss. Lemon juice also helps get rid of the toxins in your body that cause you to keep weight on. Lemon also has a ton of Vitamin C.
Apples – The fiber helps you feel full longer because it expands in your stomach so it takes less food to satisfy your hunger. I recommend eating the apples you put in the drink after you drink it…
This drink was great… both of us loved it!
