Whenever I got a bad sore throat I would spray the red liquid full of who knows what onto the back of my throat. Not anymore, whenever I feel a slight pain coming on, I drink about 1/2 teaspoon of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and the pain goes away soon after. The ACV does a great job of killing the bacteria.
When I first started taking it, I couldn't stand the taste or smell of it. (I'm known as a picky eater.) My eyes would water and I'd gag a little bit but I seem to have gotten used to the taste.
When I read about this treatment it warned not to take it too often as it could cause an upset stomach. Usually I only need to use it 1 or 2 times then I'm fine. I love how I'm able to kill the bacteria right when it comes rather than hoping it will go away and eventually suffering through a painful sore throat.
