  • Apple Cider Vinegar - Your thoughts?


    So, a Business Manager of mine caught wind that I was eating Primal, and she gave me a 32 Fl oz Glass jar of Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar that one of our clients represents. At first I’m thinking, ‘Cool, it’s supposed to have all of these healthy things in it’. The bottle suggests drinking suggests to have 2 tsps to every 8 oz glass of water 3 times a day. She said that she adds a packet of equal to it, to get rid of the vinegar taste. I was thinking of trying this, but wanted your opinions - Yea or Nee?

    Go for it. I wouldn't add any sweetener though, but I love the taste of vinegar. I get my fix on this sort of thing from homemade Kombucha that I let get rather sour. Let us know what you think after you try it for awhile.

      Skip adding the Equal. Use it in marinades, salad dressings, sauces, soups, etc. You can also take it water like she suggested -- this has a number of uses, including getting rid of colds and assisting digestion.

        I drink 1 tablespoon in 8oz water without any sweetener. It's very refreshing. I also rinse my hair in it

            I've been drinking some ACV diluted in water almost every day for a few months now (no sweetener added). Several times during that period, I've felt a cold coming on. I've increased my intake for a day or two, and the "cold" goes away before it becomes a real cold.

              Great stuff! That was a lovely gift, Braggs is wonderful. Some people say you should rinse after using to avoid losing the enamel on your teeth, not sure if that is a true statement, but I usually forget to do it.

              I have a book from 1958, called "Folk Medicine" by D.C. Jarvis, M.D., A famous doctor's guide to folk medicine practices of Vermont - the nature secrets of honey, apple cider vfinegar and foods for health. It is a very interesting read and although I no longer use honey, it has the most amazing uses for people and animals.

                I also use it as a face toner - really helps keep my skin clear. I do a 50/50 solution with distilled water.

                  Excellent stuff! Braggs = A+. Wish I'd get a nice present like that. I have some in my water every day. Put in lime or lemon to help with the taste, if you want. Excellent for eradicating Candida. An old healer-type woman (who looked 20 years younger than her true age) I used to go to in Houston puts all of her patients on ACV.

                    Same here, I do about half a liter of home made kombucha a day, brewed until sour. I drink half of the bottle on my morning commute and the rest driving back home. If I bike to work I stop and consume

                      Oh, one thing: If you are going to be taking it regularly in your water, drink through a straw. Over time, it can strip the enamel off your teeth.

                            I like it mixed into iced tea more than just water. Yum.

                              You every have vinegar slaw? It's a southern thing. Apple cider vinegar is one of the ingredients.
