How Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help You With Sore Throat?

Raw ACV contains prebiotic inulin that increases the white blood cells and boosts the immune system. It loosens and thins the mucus or phlegm present in the throat. This helps to breathe and swallow easily. Use apple cider vinegar instead of cough drops for sore throat.
