Jogging in a jug is a commercial drink that I grew up hearing commercials about how is was nature’s cure for everything. After a while the FDA decided that it was tired of hearing all the commercials and fined them for making unsubstantiated health claims. While I don’t think that anything cures everything, I do think that the ingredients in this drink are healthy and do provide a benefit.
There are several recipes for Jogging in a Jug clones, but basically they are all some sort of vinegar, and some sort of fruit juice.
For some time I have known the benefits of drinking a small amount of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) daily, and their are some studies on ACV and blood sugar.
Luckily, this recipe helps mitigate the strong vinegar taste, even though this is not something you want to drink as a water replacement – stick with it as a supplement and only drink 1/2 to a cup daily.
I am not going to get into the unproven health benefits of it being a digestive aid,a detoxifier, reliever of the common cold, weight loss aid, or how it removes plaque from arteries, keeps soft muscle tissue flexible, relieves headaches, boosts immunity, lowers cholesterol, rids the body of carcinogens, relieves constipation, helps control blood sugar levels and reduces joint pain. because I can’t prove that jogging in a jug does any of that – and I haven’t personally seen any of these benefits from my own use.
However, I do feel better after I drink some – so I think it is worth trying for that reason.
