I am still on the stage of using apple cider I started 2 week ago and I will be updating you with it's benefits I am 5'6.5" and weigh 240 lb all my blood exams are to the worst results. October 1, 2007 I started to do swimming laps in the morning and going to the gym in the afternoon . I started to eat healthier food like vegetables and less stopped fast foods. I also started to drink apple cider twice a day.

Ricardo, if you want a fast result to improve your condition, do not drink any juice but eat the whole fruits is good for you. Also go on vegetarian and vegan diet is the best. Try to avoid red meat if you can and drink apple cider vinegar 3 times a day or whenever you feel the food consumption bother you. I take apple cider vinegar 3 times a day and whenever when i eat a wrong meal. The best apple cider vinegar is Bragg organic you can find at the WholeFoods stores or Safeway. Make sure you rinse your teeth or brush if possible after taking vinegar. I heard it might affect your teeth but myself i don't have that problem. Take care

I have been using apple cider vinegar for weeks now. Sometimes two times a day and usually in a smoothy along with flax oil, honey and unsulphered blackstrap molassas. I have noticed I feel hot like hot flashes all the time, any thoughts as to why???? Anyone else have this happen?

I have started taking apple cider vinegar recently. Can the acid from the drink ruin your stomach?

I have been taking Braggs ACV since 7/07 and my arthritis has gotten worse, blood pressure has gotten higher and very little change in my type 2 diabetis. Any suggestions?

Posted by Val on November 23, 2007 5:48 PM

kp, I too have noticed the feeling of being hot. I did not associate it with the apple cider vinegar until I read your post. I have been using it for one week. I will get a cholestral test next week and see if there is a difference, might be too soon.

Apple cider vinegar is not a cure all by itself. You Have to change your diet to more and more healtier foods and mainly fruits and vegetables which include Vit. A foods like squash. Beans are the best for cooked foods and Fish PLUS Brown Rice. Spices are the Best too. One of the best is sprouts and wheat grass juice! All the Best to you Val. Switch to Organic foods if you haven't done that already - the Worst food is whole wheat flour, white sugar and artificial sweeteners!! Avoid Splenda like the plaque!! Build up to one cooked meal aday and 2 raw meals and go from there. Theres Lots of advice on this Site about what else to eat.
One best thing is a fruit juice fast but Don't do too many days in a row!!

I had indigestion nearly every time I ate, and I was found myself taking Tums a couple times a day. Apple cider vinegar stopped all my indigestion early in the week I started taking it.

I have been taking ACV for almost a week now and my blood pressure has dropped from 185/105 to 145/85!! At times it is even as low as 135/80!! It has been YEARS since I had this type of bp. I have really made no other changes in my life...although, this has encouraged me to start eating a bit more healthy...and to exercise more!

I use Heinz...and I mix 2 tablespoons with one tablespoon of honey and gulp it fast!!! I do this three times a day...and once I get in the 130 range, I will probably cut it back to twice a day. It tastes terrible...but it has worked great for me and my bp!!!

Posted by Mark on February 11, 2008 11:45 AM

From all the good advice on this site, I think we should try a daily dose of apple cider vinegar with a touch of tumeric and cinnamon added.
I will give it a try starting tomorrow.
Cheers

I love Lipton's peach flavored tea. In 1/2 gallon of it, I put 1/4 cup honey and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and drink it as my main drink every day. I have a microwave teapot, and I use it to help mix it up, melting the honey. I can't say for sure the reason, but blood pressure, cholesterol, and fluid retention have all improved. I know that the tea has sugar in it, but I do not use artificial sweeteners, and I like sweet tea, sweeter than just the honey makes it. I love the drink, and all the ingredients have possible health helps, so I drink it all the time.

Hello,

Apple cider vinegar or ACV is an amazing potent detoxifier that has been shown to boost the immune response, sooth arthritis and joint pain, cure heartburn and help people with Fibromyalgia.

Combine ACV with proper diet and exercise for full benefits.

I often recommend ACV to patients, read more about my thoughts on ACV at http://www.thehealthword.com/topics/apple-cider-vinegar.

Yours in Health,

- Dr M

I have been using apple cider vinegar for at least a year now. I usually dilute it in water at the off set of a itchy throat. It stops the itch almost instantly. If taken just as you feel the cold coming, it stops it immediately. I believe in it and I have my whole family taking it. I drop a tea spoon or two in a large glass of water. I do not get colds at all.

I had the worst upset stomach flu thing for 3 gruelling days and when I drank 2 tbsp's of ACV, all the gas disolved in my stomach and the next day my diarrhea was gone! It was amazing.

I have had high cholesterol for over 10 years. At one point, I was able to lower it by 50 points by eating oatmeal everyday, but that got old and it was still at 232. The last time (Oct05) I had it checked, it was 272. I have been drinking a tablespoon of Braggs ACV with 8oz of water every day on and off for a year. I had my cholesterol checked on Wednesday and it is 186!! LDL is 121! ACV worked for me!

I want to drink the vinegar for the health benefits, but I can't stand the taste of it diluted in water. Is it just as good to take a straight shot of it?

Posted by Sam on June 5, 2008 10:27 AM

I'm under alot of stress and my blood pressure is higher than normal, exactly how do you take the ACV to lower your pressure?

Posted by Bernadette on June 5, 2008 11:43 AM

Mix 8 oz of water with 2 tsps of ORGANIC apple cider vinegar. I mix 1 packet of Stevia balance to help with the taste. Two or three times a day should do the trick.

I just drank 1/4 of a cup of ACV. My throat BURNS and I was gasping for air. I'm hot all over right now, but I hope there are some positive effects. If not I must say that was something you do not want to experience. I didn't realize you were suppose to drink 2 spoon fulls only.

Posted by D on June 17, 2008 2:40 PM

I started taking ACV pills 108Mg ( vit store), worked up to 3 with breakfast and 3 with dinner. My blood pressure has dropped from about 140/88 to 130/75-80. No bad taste but would it still be better with actual liquid ACV?

I started taking a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar with each meal 1 1/2 years ago. It has "cured" my acid reflux. I was on high powered medication for Barrett's esphogalitis (sp?) Had to sit up practically to sleep, trouble clearing my throat almost constantly. After app 3 months of the ACV - no more problems!!! Came off medication - been off since April 2007.

I keep ACV in an eye dropper bottle. Every night, I put 10 full squirts in a small cup and then fill the cup with grape juice.

The grape juice does an excellent job of killing the nasty flavor of the ACV.

Good results, too. My BP is going down.

I had dandruff and itching for many years and used dandruff shampoo. When I stopped using the dandruff shampoo, the dandruff came back immediately. I was frustrated and sought another solution to this problem. I heard about apple cider vinegar and decided to use it. I placed it directly on my head and left it there for 1 hour and then washed it out. I did this for a few months. It didn't work. Then I found out what I did wrong. I was supposed to use organic apple cider vinegar with the mother in it and then wash it out with a sulfate free shampoo. I did this and IT WORKS! The dandruff is gone and no more itchy scalp. I put the vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it directly on hair and massage in scalp and keep it in for 1 hour and then I shampoo hair with a sulfate free shampoo. I have no more problems with my hair.

For upset stomach, diarrhea and vomiting...2 tbs of organic acv to 8 oz water does the trick for me. Stops vomiting and settles stomach.

Posted by Melissa on November 23, 2008 2:36 PM

ACV IS NOT A FIX ALL BUT IS GREAT AT CHANGING THE PH IN AND OUTSIDE THE BODY WHEN USED AS TREATMENTS FOR SKIN AND HAIR. I TRUST IN ACV FOR FACIAL TREATMENTS AND THE SCALP BUT ALSO AS A HAIR PH STABILIZER THAT RESTORES SOFTNESS BUT IN THE CAUSE OF USE IN THE BODY IT CAN AND DOES CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH DISTURBING THE NATURAL PH LEVELS NEEDED IN THE BODY. NOT TO SAY IT DOES NOT HELP CERTAIN ASPECTS OF ILLNESS/CONITIONS BUT YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOTICE SOME SORT OF MILD OR BOTHERSOME SIDE EFFECT WHEN TAKEN ON A REGIMEN BASIS. (I DON "NOT" SUGGEST SOMEONE TAKE UP AN ENTERNAL ACV REGIMEN)! AVC WILL HELP YOU AND I RECOMMEND IT AS A ONCE IN A WHILE TREATMENT MEANING OCCASSIONAL IN FOODS, AS IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR YOU IN MODERATION BUT ONLY ON OCCASSION NOT 2-3 TIMES A DAY AS MOST PEOPLE RECOMMEND...DOING THIS MAKES MOST IF NOT ALL PEOPLE SICK WITH STOMACH PAIN OR OTHERS SICK WITH ALL SORTS OF OTHER SMALL/MINOR SIDE EFFECTS! PLEASE BE EDUCATED AND KNOW ACV IS GREAT IN MODERATION AND IN THE BODY AND IS ALWAYS GREAT FOR PH LEVELS AND HEALTH OF THE "OUTSIDE" OF THE BODY (SKIN & HAIR)...PLEASE BE ADVISED.

Posted by Jeff on January 19, 2013 5:59 AM

tammy j:
i have been taking ACV as part of my morning regimen for years, and recently (within the last three months) increased my intake to 2tbs, once each day. i have never experienced any of the "stomach pain" or "small/minor side effects" you claim "most if not all people" will get. the side effects i am enjoying are low blood pressure and low cholesterol, vibrant skin, eradication of sickness, gastrointestinal regularity, reduction of arthritis pain in my knees (despite having no meniscus in the left, with a bone spur growing up the lateral side), abundant energy all day long and consistent weight maintenance. i believe these benefits are also related to everything i do for my health, especially daily outdoor exercise and a positive outlook in life. i am almost 40 years old and a registered nurse at the local hospital--none of my co-workers can believe i'm nearly 40, nor can they figure out how it is i never get sick. i completely trust ACV and the variety of benefits it affords, and i would encourage everyone to work it slowly into their daily health practice. wishing good health to all! bee

A nice healthy hot drink can be made with cinnamon, honey and cider vinegar, added to freshly boiled water. I have this as my first drink of the day, every day.

I've been training on an exercise bike daily for the past 12 months and I started taking ACV and BSM two months ago.I just had 4 weeks holiday during which I haven't exercised at all.This afternoon I got on the exercise bike again for the first time and during the session I noticed my pulse rate is down by 25-30 beats per minute since November.I firmly believe it is as a result of the ACV.

No complaints here!

Posted by DALLAS on April 29, 2009 10:17 AM

Use 1 tablespoonful with meals if you suffer from acid indigestion and it will prevent it. Make sure you buy the unrefined raw vinegar with the mother and you will thank me forever.

I've been taking 1-2 tbsp of ACV in about 6 oz cold water for 1 week. I've watched my BP go from 142/87 last Monday, June 21, to 110/70 this morning, June 30. It has decreased a little more everyday! I also have high cholesterol and triglycerides. Can't wait to see if this is being helped too!(For those people taking ACV straight, that is very dangerous. It is too acidic and most directions will tell you it can burn you if not diluted! Be careful!

I have suffered from Acid Reflux for 5 years straight.. nothing works.. and I'm contantly taking anti-acids sometimes doubling the dose.. I had a VBG surgery done and as a result always have that burning acid boiling in me.. started ACV 2 days ago.. today.. I have yet to experience the pain and burning sensation that i usually get after eating.. i'm still pretty amazed..

i have been having a bad case of acid reflux,it feels like i have something sticking to my throat or like something wont go all the way down, so i was told to take a teaspoon of vinegar. and i did that, it has took that feeling away as if something was lodged in my throat. but i have to do this 2 times aday it really helps.

I used to get 5-6 colds every year until 1998, when I was 35 years old. In 1998 I began mixing 1 tablespoon of ACV with 8-10 ounces of water and drinking it occasionally 1-3 times throughout the week. I have not had a cold in over 11 years!

what dosage and how often do i drink the acv????
many thanks

Someone said something about getting really hot when taking Braggs ACV me too, I think because it's cutting fat and uping the metabolisim that may have something to do with it. I drink a shoot before i work out, and I am still losing weight from it. My daughter is 16 months old and I've come down for 150 to around 130,since having her.It really works.

Posted by Zennifer on November 18, 2009 12:22 PM

Vinegar also clear acne as well! I apply it straight on my face and I see instant results! Another good idea is to drink 2 tablespoons of vinegar with a glass of water. You will so impressed by the outcome!:)

i am having some health problems at the moment and my dr. recommended "bragg's" apple cider vinegar. she said the main benefit is that the acv cleanses toxins out of our bodies from processed foods that we eat every day. she said that no matter how hard we try to eat right, that all the foods and drinks that we put in our bodies in our society nowadays has some form of preservatives and additives in it. acv supposedly cleanses the body and blood of these harmful things so, of course one would see other benefits also. i just had my bloodwork done and got the results. here they are....

SERUM GLUCOSE=147
TRIGLYCERIDES=329
TOTAL CHOLESTEROL=220
LDL CHOLESTEROL=112

TOTAL CHOLESTEROL=205
LDL CHOLESTEROL=110
VLDL CHOLESTEROL=52
HEMAGLOBIN=15.0
HEMATOCRIT=45.0
AIC=6.3

i have been using acv since the first of sept. i do not believe that numbers lie. i take 1/2 tbsp. (in a juice glass), after i eat and with something to drink. twice daily. after breakfast and lunch. i am noticing a lot of little side benefits, also. my doctor says tsking it straight, like a shot of scotch, is just fine as long as i have food in my stomach and it hasn't started to break down yet and as long as i have something to drink with it. i have seen no problems yet. wanted to share this info with you guys. good health to everyone out there!!

I can attest to the fact that acv does help to lower blood pressure.

My mother used acv/honey for 2 1/2 years and kept perfect blood pressure w/o any RX. Began going to a doctor who prescribed a prescription for hypertension. That doctor also prescribed a heart medication she was not supposed to be on.

Now that MD is deceased (heartattack) and a good thing we were able to ease my mom off the heart medication she prescribed. After that she began seeing another MD who placed her on another hypertension RX.

My goal now is to get her off all RX and go back to acv/honey. It may take a while but that's our goal.

Incidentally,,my mom is 82 years old.

We are taking acv/honey daily

I have used apple cider vinegar along with boiled water and honey, and it was a great remedy for relieving laryngitus (losing your voice).

I did not believe it but after taking Apple Cider Vinegar for a week I could actually walk around with hardly any back pain - I still automatically moaned as I got out of bed or stood up but at the same time thought to myself why did I moan I'm not in pain - BUT A BIG BUT - When I stop taking it (sometimes it causes heartburn and then I have to take half a teaspoon of Bicarb of soda in water which lasts 3 days meaning no more doctors tablets or rennees)Anyway when I stop taking Apple Cider Vinegar after 3 -4 days I can hardly move let alone walk without pain - so I take it again and after 3 days no pain - stop taking it for 3 -4 days and am in agony again - I have done this now on 4 occassions - I just have to remember to take it even if it's every other day (and rinse my mouth with water to protect my teeth after) I had X-rays and the doctor said that I have worn away the base of my spine from all the heavy lifting - now I try not to carry anything. Anyway A.C.V blooming works and there is no doubt about it - apparently it puts some sort of fluid around your bones. I NOW MAKE MY OWN A.C.V. and will try that. the receipe is simple - keep the skin and core of the apple, not the flesh (make apple pie with the flesh)cover with water put lid or cloth over it and leave at about 16-20 degrees for about 3 weeks, drain and bottle. I am not sure yet how to get the film off the top (the Mother vinegar) and store it or whether it can be stored to add to and start off the next batch. Hope this wasn't too long a write up.

Posted by Bianka Booth on January 27, 2012 1:11 PM

Hi, I just started to take apple cider recently twice per day as I was convince about the health benefits. But i was told that the mother in Bragg has no evidence to support the benefit but the mother can promote the growth of a nematode in the vinegar,called vinegar worm.

reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1785201/

I normally take Alce Nero organic product as they are the leading brand in Italy and their apple vinegar is filtered. Do correct me if I am wrong.

I read about apple cider vinegar and diabetes in a pamphlet my wife gave me 6 weeks ago. I take 34 units of Levemir (long acting insulin) in the morning. I was also taking 1 unit of Novolog (fast acting insulin) per 15 grams of carbohydrates at meals. I began taking 1 tablespoon of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar (I tried a bargain brand and it didn't work as well) at 10 pm every night and for the past 5 weeks, I haven't needed any Novolog. My glucose levels (taken 4 times a day, are averaging between 78 and 97. I'm actually waiting for 'the other shoe to drop', but so far the magic is working.
