1. It regulates the body’s pH levels

If you are a runner you probably often suffer from muscular cramps. These cramps are caused by pH imbalance in the body, or by a deficiency of potassium and magnesium. It helps rebalance your system by sending a dose of electrolytes to the bloodstream. It is recommended to consume after running, to replenish the electrolytes you’re sweated out.

2. It helps you smell fresh

Many runners have problems with smelling bad while running. Sometimes the normal deodorant can’t help. Apple cider vinegar contains probiotics which kill bad bacteria that are the culprits of bad odors. You should apply apple cider vinegar on your armpits and in this way kill the bacteria and neutralize the bad smells. (1)
