Cider Vinegar before meals

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 08, 2013 at 5:41 PM

I just had a shot of cider vinegar before a meal and although there is still some discomfort (as per usual) it seems lessened

Could this be a placebo or has it helped digestion? I think I have low stomach acid

Is there a danger in this? In drinking it straight?

There are lots of benefits. This site lists some: http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/the-benefits-of-apple-cider-vinegar/

I mix it with water because it burns my throat to just shoot it. Even a shot can touch your teeth, which can cause damage. Make sure it is unfiltered and unpasteurized.

Apple cider vinegar is awesome internal medicine. Lowers cholesterol, takes away heartburn... like in minutes. And is wonderful on salads.

Yes, do not drink straight. Mix 2 tablespoons with 1/2 glass of water. Yummmmy

it could be a placebo, but if it's good quality, the fermentation can actually help. i still think you could find better fermented products to experiment with.

vinegar is not particularly good for the enamel of your teeth...

I've been taking ACV daily for a couple years. I wouldn't recommend taking it straight up. I either drink it diluted in a glass of water (and with a straw to minimize contact with teeth) or I use it in a vinaigrette. I personally didn't use it for stomach problems, but I've heard from many people that it helps with that. I wrote about it here.

It certainly does help with digestion in my case. I'm not exactly sure the reason, but it really keeps my sweet tooth in check. I have heard ACV helps to balance blood sugar levels so I assume that has something to do with it. I put about 1 tbspn in 8oz of water(4x a day)and sip it throughout the day. Drinking it undiluted seems pretty harsh. I've read some people use a straw to drink it so it doesn't really touch their teeth. The taste IMO is horrid. I'm not sure how anyone could find it "yummy", but it makes a very noticeable difference in my energy level and digestion so I will keep it up.
