i have a bottle of some organic acv that has the "mother" in it or whatever. i used to take it because i heard its good for acne(internaly) but i couldnt deal with the taste, it burns my throat lol.  only used it for a week so i cant say it has worked. but i heard many benefits to ACV...

U dilute it in water correct? must be diluted it is a strong acid. I wish it wasnt such strong acid cause i love to drinki it from botle. every once in awhile ill swig a few chugs down straight for taste n wash mouth out after for teeth health.

one important note always good for cutting but bulking use sparingly as it delays gastric emptying. so trying to stuff 8 meals or whatever 4 big meals down will be hard. good for cuttign to stay full longer.

What's the supposed mechanism that apple cider vinegar works thru? I've seen studies showing it improving glucose/insulin levels, am definitely a bit interested in it. Went through a few bottles last summer but honestly didn't notice anything. But I'm in good health to begin with, so not sure what I was expecting even.

I took ACV consistently over a couple weeks a few months ago.

What I noticed:
Healthier skin
Healthier hair
Increased internal body temperature

I wasnt on any AAS at the time.

I attribute the healthier skin and hair to the huge increase in H20 consumption though. You drink so much water while taking ACV. A huge glass to dilute the ACV, and then another huge glass to wash the taste away lol.

Brushing is the worst thing you can do after drinking/eating anything acidic. Your enamel becomes soft and has a higher chance of being worn away.
Just swish water between your teeth!

This is why u always use a soft bristle tooth brush which will be no corncern and reason why I always use baking soda as tooth paste which will alkalize conpletlt any acidic activity much more acidic things than vinegar...

so if I take ACV and baking soda is there any benefit to taking them together?

I know you reccomend taking baking soda before bed should I avoid taking ACV before bed?

Actually baking soda n apple cider vinegar together is very famous alkalzing drink in few Asian cultures to help many alignments.

The problem this is not good for us bodybuilders as baking soda must be taken far between meals o its difficult six meals a day better for average person.  And vinegar at night many people feel it gives them to much energey so there's the down sidem but many drink this in morning as well but then u must wait to eat because of baking soda. So make it simple split them.

I use it for heartburn relief..I am prescribed Prilosec but acv works better for instant relief. I just mix a tablespoon in a glass of water and down it.
Title: Re: Apple cider vinegar
Post by: taeian on April 03, 2014, 02:05:52 PM

This is notably.due to the delayed gastric emptying like I mentioned.

Now I will admit this also I cannot remember but someone can google it for me. But I believe it may actually slow the release of insulin as well. So good in some cases of course like dieting. But I know when one is not emptying there bowels freqnuentlt you will not get as hungry.

NEVER drink Apple Cider Vinegar undiluted! It's an acid and will attack your mouth and throat.

Yes it helps with the appetite, currently dieting and it's great. 5-10 minutes before my meals, also really looking forward to it every time. I love the taste

I always just take a gulp, small... maybe 10-20 ml and then fill the rest of the glass with water. Gives a nice refreshing drink.

Like maybe 2 times the bottle cap

Also Always make sure to shake your bottle before drinking because you want the mother. Otherwise it's at the bottom and you don't have all the enzymes.

I left my bottle in the window sill and now its literally full of mother. its actually nasty if you get a big lump in your mouth lol.

After reading all the positives on ACV I finally got some this weekend. I'll be drinking a glass a day, my bottle says mix 2 tea spoons into a glass of water. Tastes pretty good I won't lie but that initial first sip is quite a smack to the lips!

Personally I have introduced it the past week or so, and taste wise I love it, appetite suppresion's good also. Most notably is gas seems to be less as well, still stinky at times but for the most part is under cnotrol. I will contiune to use this and see how it plays out.

Guys be careful if you put it in a spray bottle. I have one of those plastic spray bottles that i picked up at home depot. and the ACV is leaking through the bottom. its been  in the container for 8 months now. (i use it on acne) just a few squirts. thats why it lasted in that bottom for a while.

Some of its benefits:

1.- Reduce glycameic index of food.

2.- improves food digestion (make it faster)

3.- Help loosing weight.

4.- Decrease cholesterol (LDL)

5.- improves blood stream

6.- improves calcium absorption (so become a interesting tool against osteoporosis)

i would dab a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and put it on a wart i had ED for a week or two. the wart died and turned black then fell off. left a small scar that looks like a scar from a surgery where they scope you. It HURT though. i was on opiates for leg surgery at the time and it would throb so much i had to lay down. shits weird but it works in that regard

Holy hell how do you guys drink this.  I just bought Bragg organic with mothers and put 1 tablespoon in 16oz of water and I cannot finish it.  It literally almost makes me wanna throw up and reminds me of making easter eggs.  Can adding anything to this make it taste better or putting it in juice or something?  Bleh!!!

Lol I enjoy the taste, but I can say it does remind me of Easter. Maybe try a citrusy flavor to offset it. Like a lemonade flavoring. That's my usual go to when trying to mask the flavor of something. Seems to work for most things.

Thanks for the response.  I actually did almost that-took a drink of my pineapple juice and pour a tablespoon in there.  Still horrible but didn't make me want to vomit at least.  The after taste stays around so long though.  Just poured the water mixture in the sink-no way I could chug that down (worse then jagermeister).  I will have to figure this out since it seems like the health benefits are worth it but damn!!!

I just tried a great recipe for ACV:

1/2 Cup hot Herbal Tea
1 Tbsp ACV
1 Tbsp Local Organic honey

I had some echinecia tea from when I was sick as hell a month ago and thought why not try that... The ACV goes well enough with the flavor of the herbal tea to work and the honey takes the edge right off!

Personally I use it to combat reflux, it is VERY effective for this and will work almost immediately.

I have 2 bottles at home. I can't get myself to take it daily yet... but definitely helps with reflux!
