Apple cider vinegar
« on: June 27, 2013, 03:05:19 PM »
Bought a bottle today to see if it will further improve my bowel movements, I read a lot of good reviews from people with IBS and related.
Might be interesting to some of you.

I however heard that you have to get it raw for it's benefits.   Most apple cider vinegar is pasteurized.

I bought non pasteurized organic (fermented).


This article is way more realistic:

I used the Bragg's 2 - 3 times/day for 1.5 months and it did not help with my constipation.  Neither did it help me with weight loss.  I guess everyone is different.

I did some nutritional blog reading today....more accurately, I pond jumped from topic to topic....One mentioned adequate stomach acid verses a lack of adequate stomach acid and one remedy (for lack of) was to add 1 Tab. of apple cider vinegar before each meal to assist in digestion.  If you have adequate acid, then the added acid would be superfluous.


On another note, I was reading about high oxalate foods and how they can impact the digestive track more negatively in some people.....which is really easy to ascertain, just eliminate for awhile and see what happens.

There are a lot of claims about the beneficial aspects of unfiltered apple cider vinegar. It's easy to kill an afternoon researching this kind of stuff, as we all know.
Some tidbits from Natural Solutions Radio (Gerald Martin):
 
 
"To detox: 2 TBLSP of organic ACV in a 1 or 2 Liter filtered water bottle (ie Smart Water, Evian, etc). 2 TBLSP = 1/8th cup. You can add more vinegar than this amount, however, make sure you dilute it with plenty of water. Do not add a sweetener. Drink this solution throughout the day. The solution will be cleansing your system and kidneys all day long. That's the point.
There are several things you will notice within a day or two of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar: your allergies will disappear, your face will have a healthy & youthful glow, you will look & feel more VITAL, you will have consistent energy, and you will more easily digest your food.
We believe that apple cider vinegar is probably the best (and cheapest) detoxifier for the body. As such, it is should be considered a critical component to the fountain of youth!"
 
I'm going to give this a 30 day shot and see how it goes. 4 days in now. Looking for improvement in digestion. I will say there is a bit of a pick-me-up from the solution. Plus, being a smoker I figure a daily mild detoxifier can't hurt. Had to start with Heinz unfiltered ACV with "mother" for starters, but have 2 bottles of Bragg's on the way. I'm using 1 TBS in a 16oz bottle of water twice a day.
If anyone else has used this in similar volume for any length of time, I would be interested in your findings.

I bought a jug of the stuff and only managed to drink it once, after that the thought of it was too gross.


But, I use a diluted mixture as a toner for my face and it's been good to clean it and doesn't dry my face out.


And I am using it to remove some moles. So far so good.
