I was putting two table spoons of ACV in distilled water to replace minerals and I wound up losing weight, having lower blood pressure and most of my chonic leg cramps went away. My dandruff went away. My digestion has improved and my sinuses are more clear with fewer sinus headaches. My aching joints ache much less. All this and I had no clue it had those health benefits.

I can't really speak to its effectiveness, but the side effects are awful for me. Headache, severely emotional, stomach upset, rashes on skin getting worse not better, dull back and neck ache, blurry vision, dizziness, and red-ish skin from waist up when I stand. This is just from ingesting about 2 tsp 2x day for 2 days.

Started taking ACV because I was feeling off and had a tightness in my chest and swollowing was becoming a problem. I took some regular ACV and felt better by the next day. I continued taking the ACV and the tightness and swollowing issues disappeared in a few days. I have since bought ACV with "mother" and take a 1 Tbsp shot 3 times per day. I notice if I fill my mouth with saliva pr ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Important note! Apple Cider Vinegar has many good uses, BUT! It is known to cause Bone Density issues by leaching Vitamin D from the bones when taken orally for any serious length of time. So, if you take ACV orally for more than 1 week, please supplement your diet with Vitamin D-3. This is the most complete form of Vitamin D for this kind of issue. Other than this warning, stick with the recommen ... Show Full Comment
