Dangers In Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar?
I would like to know if their are any dangers in drinking Apple Cider Vinegar?
How much ACV is too much, and how would I be able to tell?
Does apple cider vinegar help with diets?
The dangers in drinking apple cider vinegar are basically none, if you are using the right kind and not going overboard.
By the right kind, I mean RAW, ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar, not the filtered kind that you usually find in the grocery store. Filtered (clear) ACV can do you more harm than good. It's actually "dead" unlike the live beneficial properties found in raw apple cider vinegar.
You can tell the difference by looking to see if there is floating debris in the bottle and sediment on the bottom. :-) That's called "the mother" of the vinegar and let's you know that it hasn't been processed and filtered to death.
I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. It's one of the best quality ACV's available. You can often get it at your local health food store or in the health section of your local grocery store. You can also purchase Bragg's ACV at Puritan's Pride
.How much ACV is too much?
Most recommendations range between 1 to 4 tablespoons per day, diluted in water or juice. I wouldn't really recommend more than that myself, for internal use.
If you are trying to lose weight, try drinking 1 tablespoon in a large glass of water 3 times per day. Many people find it easier to drink if you squeeze a little lemon in the glass, too.
The way apple cider vinegar helps in dieting is to help reduce cravings, help speed up your metabolism, and help your body to process your food more efficiently.
My mother-in-law puts a little honey in her ACV and water to make a refreshing morning tea.
Try a variety of methods to find the one that suits your tastes the best.
One of the dangers in drinking apple cider vinegar that people worry about the most is damage to their tooth enamel. If that is a concern to you, drink your ACV mixture through a straw so you have less contact with your teeth and give your mouth a little rinse with plain water when you're finished.
Hope this helps!To your good health!
