Powerful Concoction of Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV as they call it and natural pure Honey are the two of the most amazing natural substances. I have known ACV years back through my reading online. I have been taking ACV of the different brands years ago as my weight loss partner. I used to buy gallons of ACV and consumed daily until my system got a hold of the taste and the smell.

Recently, I was introduced to this brand Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar which I am aware of but did not buy because it is more expensive than the brand I used to take. 
I started to make a concoction consist of these two products in the hopes that it will helps my body inside-outside. 

Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar organic, raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized', naturally gluten-free, contains 5% acidity, Mothe of Vinegar which occurs naturally as strand-like enzymes of connected protein molecules. The available size the time of this purchased was.in 473ml bottle which cost Php245 ($5.11). 
Cems Honey Prime Brand finest honey approximately 500gram bottle. I am not sure about the price of this honey brand because it was given to us as a gift last Christmas. 

I tried to mix this two using 1 teaspoonful each in a glass of cold water. The ACV has a very strong scent and to first time user of this product this might cause a negative effect of the user. Have patience with it think of the benefits of it in the long run. Mixing ACV and honey in a cold water is not a good idea because the honey did not dissolve quickly. It was all over the spoon and at the bottom of the cup, although the scent of the vinegar was lessen and I chug the whole concoction right away. This morning I tried the mixture in warm water. I dissolved the honey and ACV mixture in hot water just enough for the two to blend and dissolve, then added some cold water to make a warm mixture. This is much better than the cold water mixture. I took the concoction 30 minutes before breakfast and I will do this again tonight before dinner. 
It is advised that you take ACV and honey mix in an empty stomach. 
I will make an effort to continue this and let's see what will the effects be like in the coming days.

Why is the combination of ACV & honey so successful?
The overwhelming benefits of the mixture can be explained by looking at their chemical properties and interactions with the body. Many experts believe that we become ill when our bodies turn overly acidic (pH below 7). Vinegar is naturally acidic, but when consumed, it turns alkaline. Honey, too, has a low pH, but raises the alkalinity of the body once eaten.
The two substances are a perfect way to get rid of excessive acidity (resulting from stressful lifestyle and unhealthy foods and drinks) and building an internal environment with a protective pH. Our bodies function at their best and healthiest when the body’s pH is between 7.0 and 7.4, so slightly alkaline.
