Although not scientifically demonstrated to reduce gas, bloating and heartburn, anecdotal evidence has caused many holistic health practitioners to recommend apple cider vinegar as treatment for digestive distress. For gas and bloating, drink a glass of vinegar in water before each meal. For heartburn, drink it as soon as you feel symptoms. The vinegar helps bloating because it kick starts digestion so your stomach can better manage your meal.
Measure 1 tablespoon of plain apple cider vinegar.
Pour the vinegar into the bottom of your glass.
Top with 8 to 16 ounces of cool water. Stir to blend so you don't get a strong vinegar taste at the bottom. How much water you choose to use is based on your taste -- a strong vinegar flavor can be off-putting to some people.
