    Agree.
    Recently bought a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar (on sale) and enjoyed it with my organic fries and wild-caught, beer-battered cod on Friday, partly because it's Lent.

    This is funny, literally just finishing this morning, an 8-ounce of glass with water with a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. This is my routine every morning, them with my regular water and black coffee.

    I just got a new job and the flu tried to attack me right before I was scheduled to come in. I woke up and felt the scratch in my throat along with the sickness and I said "oh hell naw" and jumped out of bed to go straight down to the kitchen. I went and took some swigs of ACV. That beat it down a bit and I just continued having some morning, sometimes noon, and at night before bed. I like the coconut cider more than the apple. It's sweeter and sometimes it's almost like I'm drinking kombucha.

    It works amazingly well. Arm yourselves my friends and you'll do just fine.
    I take 1/2 a cup in the morning with pomegranate juice and the same at night.
    Keeps me fit and ready for the WORLD

    Make sure to drink from a straw or your teeth will not thank you.

    Well, the idea is there. But ACV is strong so a fast gulp and never touching my teeth are best for me.
    I wash it all down with water and it's all good. Sipping is not my style.

    I put a couple of tablespoons in a large glass of filtered water and then add a few drops of liquid stevia. It tastes like weak apple juice which sort of tastes good.

    Diluting it with water is sufficient enough to not affect tooth enamel. I would never drink it straight up from the bottle. Always drink it out of glass and never put it in plastic water bottles and refrain from using straws. The acetic acid could possibly break down the plastic and then you're putting that dissolved plastic material right into your body.

    I actually don't even need to sweeten it either. I've gotten used to it.

    It's supposed to be good for the prostate, too. Here's a short article on some of its benefits. It suggests having it at nighttime to improve blood sugar levels the following morning:

    5.0 out of 5 stars An eight month experiment that changed my life
    Reviewed in the United States on June 21, 2011

    I have taken Braggs ACV for eight straight months. That's right, I've religiously taken 1-2 tablespoons 2-3 times per day for 250 days. I'd like to share my personal experiences and the changes my body has gone through since I started last October.

    At the outset of my ACV "diet" I was a pretty healthy 6'2" 210 pound 29 year-old guy with a decent spare tire around my waist. I was enjoying life a little too much and exercising too little. I started taking ACV for heartburn. I enjoy cooking so I had a bottle of it in my kitchen already. After experiencing the instant and amazing relief (and energy boost), I did a bit of research and found out that it cures a laundry list of other ailments. It sounded too good to be true, so my skeptical self decided to give it the old college try for a month. I continued taking it and noticed within days that I was sleeping better, eating better and generally had more energy. After a few weeks, my wife noticed that I had lost weight, and I shocked myself one day when I caught myself in a full-length mirror. I was getting my skinny college body back! And this without any exercise or apparent change in diet. I was doing nothing different except for the addition of ACV to my diet.

    Energy levels. This is the first thing you'll notice as the ACV hits your stomach. Almost instantly, you get a natural boost that lasts for hours. Any desire to eat unhealthy food fades. I've read that this is a result of the normalizing effect it has on blood sugar. This is also related to the weight loss people experience while taking it. The high energy levels given by ACV is my new normal.

    Addiction. Before taking ACV, I was drinking far too much alcohol and caffeine. A pot of coffee was my mainstay during the day and a bottle of wine was easy to finish after dinner. A few years ago I was getting heart palpitations from drinking too much caffeine so I quit cold turkey, but my usage was creeping back up again. Fast forward to after eight months on Braggs--I drink one glass of coffee per day (maybe two) and am lucky if I can finish a bottle of wine or a few heavy beers. My stomach just says ENOUGH. Oh, and no heart palpitations since!

    Sleep. I was a sleepwalker as a child. I never grew out of it. As an adult, I still sleepwalk and in addition suffer from insomnia and sleep paralysis (where you wake up, can't move and believe something is in the room with you--not fun). Before ACV I'd get sleep paralysis a few times per week and sleepwalk a few times per month. I needed 9-10 hours of sleep per night to feel rested. After ACV I fall asleep easier, RARELY get sleep paralysis and don't sleepwalk anymore. I wake up feeling refreshed after 7-8 hours.

    Weight loss. While not a magical fat-burning elixir, it will control your blood sugar and cravings, resulting in a slow weight loss over time. My "spare tire" is nearly gone and some of my pants are looking big on me. I'm continuing to lose weight slowly, and family and friends who only see me a few times per year always remark how thin I'm getting. ACV also gets rid of water bloat, which will have the visual effect of weight loss right away. Take it before going out to Macaroni Grill to prevent feeling like a lumbering dinosaur afterwards. Now that the weather is warmer I've started jogging and this magnifies the weight loss even more, and a shot beforehand always ensures a great workout with high energy levels.

    Skin. I never had a problem with acne before so I can't comment on its use for that. I did break out with some psoriasis on my nose recently, and I thought it was just dry skin. But it didn't go away after a month and was getting worse. I applied ACV directly with a Q-tip for a couple weeks and PRESTO it was gone. Amazing!

    Digestion. If you suffer from heart burn or acid reflux (I had both!) ACV works wonders. It also calms the stomach after a large meal and eliminates bloating and hangovers. It acts as a "cleanser" of sorts, so don't stray too far from the bathroom the first few times you take it. You'll be amazed at what comes out. On second thought, no you won't. Just flush.

    Immune system. I had a pretty strong one before starting the Braggs diet, however I still found myself getting sick a couple times per year, whether it was something nasty like the flu, a sinus infection or simply a cold brought on by stress. Guess what? I haven't been sick in eight months. Not even a sniffle. If I ever get sick again, I will be surprised.

    Here are a couple pointers. If you can't stand the taste, mix it with honey or juice. Or just man up and shoot it like a tequila shot (after awhile you'll get used to it). Now I simply drink it straight and instantly chase it with a big glass of water. I shoot it back so it doesn't touch my teeth and swish my mouth with the water. If you do it right it doesn't burn. Just think of it as really tart apple cider. If you're going to wuss out of taking ACV because of the taste, you're doing yourself a disservice and missing out on a lot of health benefits.

    Apple cider vinegar does AMAZING things to every bodily system. I don't know how it works, but it works. I was a believer after days and will remain one for years. Now I know why doctors and the medical establishment scoff at ACV--if everyone took it they'd be out of a job! Do your body a favor and start your own Braggs experiment!

    Could ACV also help as a defense against the deadly Coronavirus? Could it be added to orange or grapefruit juice?

    I use apple cider vinegar, mainly on salads along with olive oil, sometimes with salmon of all things, and of course in recipes calling for it. Grew up having it, because my grandmother, born in the 1800s, had many uses for it, even cleaning.

    I don’t know if some of these extreme claims I read here for it are true. I use it simply because I like the taste with some things, a legacy of my childhood. Among the things my grandmother claimed was that it helped “thin the blood”, that she contended was important in winter.

    Or was it summer? I forget now, really not important, just that she thought it took care of a seasonal blood imbalance I don’t know even really exists.

    Folk lore is fascinating. Sometimes there’s hidden wisdom in it, that modern scientists verify. Other times it’s total nonsense, even harmful.

    Regarding food in general, I usually just let my taste guide me, and whether or not my body rebels against it. And when I read all these big studies & lists about healthy foods vs. unhealthy, with periodic updates, about 90% of what I regularly like to eat shows up on the good side, and what I’ve always avoided by personal choice is listed on the bad side.

    And apple cider vinegar is on my personal like side, never without a bottle in the kitchen, whether it really cures warts or not. Or maybe that’s why I don’t have any? icon_confused.gif

    Generally, it can boost your immunity with the acid or high doses of Vitamin C

    Good natural elixir.

    10 Natural Cold and Flu Remedies and Immune Elixir Recipe
    Avoid sugar and eat well: Glucose and Vitamin C compete for uptake. The more sugar we eat, the less we are able to absorb Vitamin C. Vitamin C increases the activity of our white blood cells, including antimicrobial and natural killer cell activities. It's recommended to high dose on immune-enhancing foods like red peppers and cucumber – both rich in Vitamin C – and culinary mushrooms like shiitakes.

    High blood pressure: Studies show adding this drink to your diet will lower your reading


    Apple cider vinegar has long been hailed as a healthy option to add to one’s diet.

    The drink has been seen as a popular “cure all” for many illnesses and conditions including an upset stomach, high cholesterol and sore throats.

    In fact, the ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates used apple cider vinegar for wound care and in the 10th century it was used with sulphur as a hand wash during autopsies to help prevent infection.

    Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar could play a key role in helping one to keep their blood pressure low.

    So for over 2 months now I have had 1/4 of a cup of ACV mixed with pomegranate juice and it has helped me to
    maintain and even burn off some extra calories. It has some amazing properties! I've been very religious about
    taking it too.

    I dunno, guess i’ve been eating healthy for nearly 70 years. My grandmother always praised vinegar as being healthful for you. I never understood why, and I doubt she really did, either. Folk wisdom from the 1800s.

    To this day I eat salmon right out of the can (Army C-ration style), after first pouring apple cider vinegar over it. Just like ’Nanna did. During the Great Depression canned salmon was cheaper than tuna fish.

    And on salads I always have oil & vinegar, never creamy, fatty commercial stuff. Only difference is that when I was a kid it was vegetable oil. Today, after 2 Italian partners, it’s olive oil. Something that was unknown in my family of Northern European descent.

    Yet to look at you now, with that massive barrel gut you carry. One wouldn't think: now there is a healthy eating person.

    They do say: apple cider vinegar is a great gutbuster. Can help to burn away your belly fat.

    Look at me? When have you ever looked at me?

    Other RJ guys here have seen me in person, but not you.

    You’re a total fake, a fraud. Your’re so totally busted I don’t think anyone can sink lower on this site. With your recent fake trip to the US (no pics), with your fake everything.
