I take a blood pressure pill that says not to take potassium supplement. I wonder if the potassium in the vinegar would be the same?? All the information is vry interesting. I think anything that curves the appetite would be benificial in weight loss. Thanks for all the information.

I cannot keep up with taking ACV on a regular basis. I make it 2-3 days and just can't do it anymore.

Love the Bragg's ACV. Hasn't helped speed up my weight loss any, but adding it to my daily routine seemed to have brought relief to my joints plus many of the other benefits mentioned earlier. I honestly believe adding ACV and sesame oil to my eating plan had the greatest effect on controlling my high blood pressure and triglycerides.
(The clear, white vinegar I keep for cleaning floors, etc. and in place of fabric softener, and surprisingly the white vinegar healed up a really bad spider bite.)

JadeRosie - Maybe just start with taking it once a day, 2 tsp. in a glass of cold water with several drops of stevia? If I'd tried 3x day right from the start, I wouldn't have kept up either.

DizzyUp - ACV has no carbs, so it won't throw you out of ketosis.

Hey MissBeth, Happy to hear from someone else who feels ACV has had an affect on their blood pressure... Also a great suggestion to start slow... I guess 3 times a day would be a little overwhelming at first!

My cousin swears by it and as I said above he was having some horrific sexual dysfunctions resulting from the blood pressure meds.... Since starting the ACV...he also uses lemon with it...as a cocktail...a recipe he found in a homeopathy book....his very, high blood pressure has stablilized and his dysfunctions have improved tremendously... He said it gave him back his sex life...

So he's hooked for life...

It is advised to take a tbl before meals as a digestion aid for people with reflux or Gerd.

I believe this may have to do with it's diuretic effect. She has mentioned that she no longer retains water. It has also helped reduce how hungry she is, so I guess she is probably eating a little less, but nothing drastically different. I wish I could post some pictures of her for people to see! She really did lose this weight tremendously fast. She went from a size 16 to a size 8/10 and it happened right before our eyes since we see her a few times a week. I've also watched her eat and no what she eats, and nothing has changed.

I am not trying to tell people to drink this and they'll lose weight, as it's not going to happen to everyone, but it does aid in many other aspects of your health. I will take it for the immense amount of vitamins and energy producing minerals that are found in the ACV. Hopefully I will stop feeling so groggy throughout the day, and maybe my skin and hair will be healthier too.

One of the many positive claims about the ACV is it's ability to provide relief for arthritis pain!

With all due respect to the original poster I would like to address the above.

While 40lbs. was not water weight entirely, it was some as well as other losses because of a "different" metabolic affect in this person's daily regime. In example, refined foods require the body to pull vitamins, minerals and enzymes because they contain none. So the ACV has assisted those refined foods per se but I have a feeling if this person is still maintaining a high carb refined lifestyle, her success will come to a halt quite shortly. One can only consume primarily refined foods for so long while dieting. The plateau is just around the corner.

For the person on BP meds?? Don't worry about natural sources of potassium...it is often said that potassium improves blood pressure from natural sources. I'm quite sure your Rx refers to synthetic.

Acid reflux? Yes but alkalize the ACV with baking soda first.

Yes, it should help but I would also recommend for you a combination of MSM, Fish oil and bromelain as a natural anti-inflammatory.

Finding this thread intriguing. Is there any idea about how long one has to take the ACV before noticing results. The fatigue issue is of real interest to me.

Omg i cant believe that it`s a few in here that have doubts about acv i`ve been hearing about acv ever since i was a lil girl ,and i am now 33yrs ,See the problem is people( INCLUDING MYSELF) dont like to stick to something and that`s alot of reasons experiments don`t work i have been talking bragg`s avc for like 6 days now and i`ve already lost 3lbs i have not craved any sweets my back is feeling lighter we just moved into a 2story home and when we first go here i had a hard time walking up the stairs my knees would hurt really bad ,now i sprint up the stairs my knees no longer hurt and i have not been out of breath what-so-ever my skin is getting lighter im just feeling alot better over all. For the first time im my life i feel that i can stick to losing weight thanks to acv so i encourage everybody to atleAst give it a try before u knock it ... Oh another thing prime example i dont KNOW how alot of you guys clean your meat far as chicken and pork but what i do and have been doing for over 15yrs is i soak my chicken in vinegar espacially the greasy fatty part like the thighs and wings for about 5 mins or so and you can see the grease and fat melt away so why would it work for humans mmmhmmm???

i believe it helps my fatigue. i have lupus and it seems to help the excessive fatigue i get from running a continuous low grade fever. i also use coconut oil and drink yerba mate to battle my fatigue.

i'm not sure about how it aids in weight loss, as i am at goal and don't focus on my weight at all. i don't weigh myself, but i wear a 2/4 depending on the clothes and it definitely hasn't made me gain.

I have some Bragg's and it's been there a while. About 8 months -ish. The "mother" part is looking pretty funky. Do you ACV users just slurp up the mother along with the vinegar or when it gets to the bottom, do you start filtering it a bit? I'd try it again but that cloud at the bottom turns my stomach a wee bit.

I read about the virtues of Braggs ACV on another site 2 weeks ago and had my DH go out and get me some from the health food store and I haven't opened it yet.

This thread was just the nudge I needed. I have fallen off the low carb wagon so badly so I will be starting out with this 1st thing in the morning.

I don't believe that it'll help me to lose any faster (I only wish it would) but if it helps with my bloating and gives me energy that would be great.

Oh and a tip I got from the other site. The acid can be bad for your teeth so drink your elixir however you prep it through a straw . Fortunately, I'm in this habit already cause I don't like drinks staining my teeth.

I just pour a little in a cup or so of water and drink it right down. I don't add sweetener or anything to it. I have bad reflux, but it doesn't bother me at all. In fact, it helps some people with reflux.

Ok, I had my first dose this morning before bkfst. I mixed about 2tbsp maybe a touch more with about 6oz of water. I put in a small slice of lemon , some ice and a drop of stevia, it was not bad at all. I gulped it down through my straw an went on about my business.

I'm only hoping for the diuretic effects, so anything else will be a bonus. Can't hurt!!

I find it works best for me as a diuretic to sip it in my water along the course of a day. Shooting it didn't help me.
