It is a proven fact that most poisons are hiding in the fatty tissues of the body. You can minimize the amount of toxins in your body by decreasing weight.

Detox diets are mainly short-term nutritional therapies that aim to rid your body of toxins. A traditional detox diet includes a fasting period, followed by a rigorous diet of fruits, vegetables, and plenty of water.  Now colon cleanses or enemas are a significant part of detox.

But is widely used for heartburn, mouthwash, soothe canker sores, and deodorant. Yes, it’s true – believed to have a direct effect on weight loss. So, how does this ingredient promote weight loss? Let’s uncover the answers.


Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate – an antacid used to get rid of heartburn and gastritis. Therefore, using this element in our food certainly helps in indigestion. Now, there are several options to consume baking soda.

Apple cider vinegar is a natural laxative that helps individuals lose weight by aiding in hunger control. As a detox diet, it controls your appetite. Apple cider can help you lose weight on its own. It contains acetic acid, which, according to certain research, increases the amount of specific enzymes, speeding up the fat-burning process.

How much to drink?

Because no scientific studies have been done to determine the right amount of baking soda and apple cider vinegar to drink for weight loss, some recommendations are drinking the cocktail for five days in a row with the next two days off.

The most crucial piece of advice is to not overdo it. Too much acidity in your body can have disastrous consequences and jeopardize your health.

The drink is made using 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and 120 milliliters of water. Allow the soda and apple cider vinegar to sit for a few minutes before adding the water.
