What is the truth about apple cider vinegar?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
I read it is supposed to have numerous health benefits. So I gave it a shot. I took one tablespoon with some water, and it felt like it was burning my stomach. I thought "that can't be good". I am more than skeptical about trying it again. In fact, it must be a joke. Does anyone use apple cider vinegar on a regular basis? What has it done for you?

P.S. I placed that S*#t in the trash.

If it were beneficial to your health it would not cost $2 dollars a bottle.

hi... the people that I study from and trust say no to vinegar because it stops digestion and also because of its high acid content... I read that cider is made from poor quality apples that are mostly spoiled so if it starts out bad I am not sure if it can turn out good... one day we will have the Complete Truth but until then we are wise to study from many sources and to listen to our own inner Voice... blessings for health

What is the truth about apple cider vinegar?


The truth is -

Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar made by the fermentation of apple cider.

Anything beyond that you will have to discover for yourself.

All you can really learn from a web site is some ones opinion. Good starting point but thats about it.

If you really want to know you must try it for yourself with an open mind and no expectations and then and only then can you objectively make a decision or at least you think you can.

Because then you must realize that it is impossible for you to come to an objective opinion due to the fact that your opinion of your self is for the most part bias, so then you must seek clinical proof and then let the data decide.

ACV is a mild cleansing diuretic and antiseptic.

Julius Caesar made sure his army had plenty of it. It was so highly valued in ancient Rome that it was used as a form of currency.

I have used it for dealing with my sinus infections. I'm not sure about the weight loss claims. But as far as my sinus issues go, it has been effective in giving me relief. I will either mix it with water and heat it in the microwave, and inhale the fumes, or unfortunately I will drink it. The acidic nature of acv purportedly kills the bacteria in the sinus system.

hi.. I study from Natural Hygiene> have a huge correspondence course, imho at a BA level, in nutrition, fasting and healing,... this course contains the Master Health Series from Dr Shelton, works by TC Fry and Dr Vitrano just to name a very few...also Ellen G White who is north americas most prolific woman writer of 15 thousand manuscripts on health and spirituality... David Wolfe author of 6 books and owner of the biggest raw movement in NA.. Frederic Patenaude raw food author and founder, Dr Gabrial Cousens owner of Tree of Life Rejuvenation, Dr McDougall 33 yrs as a heart specialist who has never used surgery in his practice, David Klein vegetarian health writer just to name a few... sometimes over the 27 yrs a few authors change their positions but not Natural Hygiene or Ellen G White to name just two...I have attended a least 7 of David Wolfes seminars both in canada and across the US.. I would tell anyone to go see him at all costs... I believe that David and Cousens are 2 of the most informed healthcare providers on the planet.. invaluable insights on matters of nutrition, health and illness... blessings for health

vinegar "stops digestion"? link?

googling for "vinegar digestion" brings up many hits on vinegar aiding digestion and facilitating nutrient bio-availability.

I gave up trying to find one hit that said vinegar was bad for digestion.

acetic and citric acids are metabolized to alkaline.

a great way to use ACV is in a vinaigrette,

ACV + cold-pressed virgin olive + whole grain mustard (not French's fake stuff) + coarse black pepper + fresh garlic + herbs de provence or italian herbs. proportions to suit.

hi^^^ did you know that black pepper is an irritant that harms the delicate lining of the intestinal tract??.. another point from Natural Hygiene.... my point for naming my sources should have included the fact that different sources are saying the same things about vinegar products... those acids do turn alkaline when they are raw and not femented or cooked... here is a piece from Ellen G White.. Ellen White is known for her contributions to matters of health and nutrition and recently the medical world is seeing that her works are proving to be correct and a hundred yrs b4 her time... blessings

There is danger to health in the use of even sweet cider as ordinarily produced. If people could see what the microscope reveals in regard to the cider they buy, few would be willing to drink it. Often those who manufacture cider for the market are not careful as to the condition of the fruit used, and the juice of wormy and decayed apples is expressed. Those who would not think of using the poisonous, rotten apples in any other way, will drink the cider made from them, and call it a luxury; but the microscope shows that even when fresh from the press, this pleasant beverage is wholly unfit for use. {TSDF 16.3}

The salads are prepared with oil and vinegar, fermentation takes place in the stomach, and the food does not digest, but decays or putrefies. As a consequence the blood is not nourished, but becomes filled with impurities, and liver and kidney difficulty appear. Heart disturbances, inflammation, and many evils are the result of such kind of treatment..

"did you know that black pepper is an irritant that harms the delicate lining of the intestinal tract"

did you know that black pepper contains piperine which greatly increases the bio-availability of many nutrients?

black pepper, and peppers of all types, have been eaten by billions of people for 1000s of years. But some modern food scientist says otherwise? GMAFB

Capsaicin from peppers is an anti-inflammatory, an analgesic, and anti-cancer phyto-chemical. It is proposed as one explanation why tropical countries that consume great quantities lof peppers have, across the board, lower cancer rates than the cancer-ridden USA.

hi... black pepper is a spice... peppers are not...black pepper is completely unrelated to peppers...in many cases the 2 were confused and so were the benefits.. I agree about peppers being good and I disagree that black pepper is good.. people with ulcers and surgery are taken off of pepper due to its iritating effects, black pepper has carcinogetic properties... black pepper originated in India, google the aliments in this culture and note that stomach and intestinal issues are prevalent.......

monalee1, I'm confused. What are you trying to point out in your post? I'm not trying to be mean but I'm getting a headache trying to figure out what's going on in your statements.

I've used it for a couple of years and have had great results. It helps with heartburn, digestion (when you have eaten meats mostly), increases energy, helps with sore throats, and many other things that I've not needed it for, but that you can google. Or as someone suggested visit Bragg's website.

You have to use the raw ACV with 'the Mother'. I put a glug into my big container of water and drink all day. It definitely helps w/ allergies/sore throats almost immediately.

Maybe I can help since I was taught about the same stuff as a child...
Ellen White was one of the founders of Seventh-Day Adventists and thought to be a modern day prophet (among adventists anyway). Among other things she taught a strong health message even going so far as to say that drinking tea or coffee (in some SDA streams this has been extended to include ANY caffeine containing beverage) is a SIN.

About pepper she said "Mustard, pepper, spices, pickles, and other things of a like character, irritate the stomach and make the blood feverish and impure." (http://www.ellenwhiteexposed.com/egw49.htm)

I took one tablespoon with some water, and it felt like it was burning my stomach. I thought "that can't be good".
It's one TEASPOON in a WHOLE GLASS OF WATER. You're also supposed to add 2 teaspoons of honey to that, and stir it all together. You're not supposed to drink it neat, or to spoon it like medicine. It's like bicarbonate of soda. Great for you when it's a tiny amount dissolved in a whole glass. Painful when you use too much, just like anything.

One of the uses of it is that it naturally restores the acidic balance in your digestion. Your body naturally produces alkalines in your intestines to counteract the effects of the hydrochloric acid in your stomach. If you eat too much rich food, such as meat or sweet food, then more hydrochloric acid is required, but quite often, the body is not able to produce enough alkaline to balance things. Also, artificial preservatives are usually composed of acids, as bacteria and insects find it very hard to consume food that is too acidic for them to eat. You can end up getting acid reflux or heartburn, or the digested food can be too acidic to break down properly in the intestines. Also, this can over-acidify the blood. Then your kidney has to flush out a lot of acidic content. So more water than normal has to be removed from your system, and you can get quite dry skin, dry hair, etc. But your kidney cannot flush it all out, not unless you drink several litres of water a day. So some is crystallised in the kidneys as kidney stones. Very painful. The blood is therefore slightly more acidic than it should be. That imbalance makes it much more difficult for the immune cells to work properly. In addition, essential vitamins act as organic catalysts, speeding up many of the chemical processes of the body. But catalysts tend to be very sensitive to environmental changes, such as the pH balance. So making the body even slightly acidic can make the vitamins much less effective than normal, and can make your body sluggish and unresponsive in all sorts of ways.

ACV is used like bicarbonate of soda to balance out your digestion from too much rich food.

Not sure entirely, i just know i love it with olive oil and honey on veggies BUT...

My ex wife suffered from some form of migrane that was so severe it actually blinded her at times. The docs gave her everything in the world and nothing helped until my mother saw something about apple cider.. Stuff worked like a charm, the second she felt it coming, took a few spoons with honey and away it went.

the vinegar can calm stomach acids if you have bad acid reflexes. So can vinegar chips though which tastes better. But too much can cause reverse effects. Apple cider well think about what an apple does for you. Vitamins and cleans your teeth squeeky clean lol
