Normal lymphatic drainage and normal detoxification processes
Apple cider vinegar contains a number of important components, such as organic acids: acetic, citric, formic, lactic, malic, and succinic acids.

May turn on genes to signal your body to accumulate and store less fat
May make you feel more full and less likely to eat large amounts of food when taken before meals
May boost your body’s absorption of important minerals from the foods you eat
