You can eat these immediately or store them in the fridge.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV is your stomach acids best sidekick. ACV increases your bodies ability to produce hydrochloric acid (HCI), the vital acid in your stomach. HCI plays a huge role in facilitating protein digestion by converting pepsinogen into the enzyme pepsin, which will helps break down your protein into amino acids. It also promotes the digestion of the other macros, carbs and fats. It stimulates the release of pancreatic enzymes and bile into the small intestine increasing your absorption of carbs, fats, vitamin A and E!
So without adequate stomach acid, food is incompletely digested and nutrients are not properly assimilated. This is a BIG. DEAL.
