Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Not entirely but...: Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues. Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more

Does vinegar, cider and water reduce cholesterol?

Does vinegar, cider and water reduce cholesterol?

Not A Rat's Chance: Quote: "There have been many lofty claims about the miraculous healing powers of apple cider vinegar, and many people do seem to be experiencing some health benefits. However, much of what you read about this product on the Internet is overstated, or simply unfounded." And if you are a rat, it may affect your cholesterol (a rat study), but really now, I think it's a marvelously stinky placebo. ...Read more

Apple cider vinegar honey and water is it good for weight lost?

Health Myths: Nope. Weight loss is successful with the changing of the way you eat, how you move and the composition of your diet calories with proteins being the necessary majority of a good diet's calories.

Can apple cider vinegar affect my tooth patch? I'm drinking the Bragg's apple cider vinegar.

Risks: Some people use a couple of teaspoons in other liquids such as juices as a reported way to control weight and improve their mood. Even if this were the case, which I personally question, with continued use, you run the risk of having the acids wear away your tooth enamel. It's a risk I personally would not take. Is it one that you want to? There are better tried and true methods. ...Read more

No: Your colon cleans itself. There is no such thing as "toxic bowel settlement" or any of the other stuff that you've been told is sitting in your colon and making you sick.

Yes, in moderation: Vinegar, including apple cider vinegar, lowers post-prandial glycemia by 20%. This appears to be due to vinegars effect of slowing gastric emptying. Just 2 teaspoons before meals is the effective dose. **Avoid vinegar pills as they have been associated with esophageal injury....their pH and contents are not standardized. Avoid large dose of apple cider vinegar as it can cause hypokalemia. ...Read more

How is apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and honey to relieve constipation?

How is apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and honey to relieve constipation?

Poor choice: Occasional constipation responds best to a real laxative such as milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Frequent constipation should prompt a check for thyroid disease and porphyria; if it's new, a check for colon cancer is of course indicated. If no medical cause is found, get some good advice on diet and drinking enough water. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is apple cider vinegar good for reflux?

Is apple cider vinegar good for reflux?

Not so much: Reflux can be serious. Apple cider vinegar is promoted for everything -- and this alone should tell you something. Something as simple as elevating the head of your bed may help more. Staying trim and fit is a plus; you may not be able to eliminate reflux but you can control the symptoms. Your physician knows how to manage it and when to do endoscopy. ...Read more

Should apple cider vinegarbe mixed with juice ?

More palatable: Apple cider vinegar seems to have entered the rhetoric of naturopathic medicine and organic enthusiasts. It is a source of calories and a minor adjust to the acid-base balance of the body, but has no independent health effects. If you feel you must drink it, mixing with juice might make it more tasty. ...Read more

I got a little drop apple cider vinegar and water in eye it slashed from the cup i was useing i washed it out will my eye be ok?

Should be OK: If you irrigated the eye after getting the vinegar cider in it, the eye should be OK. It may be irritated and injected from the vinegar and even the irrigation itself. Usually these symptoms will resolve. If any symptoms persist, or if there is pain or loss of vision, seek medical attention promptly. This could include care by an ophthalmologist, an ER, or an urgent care center. ...Read more

Thanks

Neither: If you are otherwise healthy -- in particular, if your kidneys are working normally -- this will neither help nor harm your health in any way. Assuming, of course, that you're not drinking liters of the stuff. Too much acid (which is what this is) or anything else can be harmful. ...Read more

Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Possibly but...: Apple cider vinegar is touted as a miracle cure for many things including arterial plaque. I believe it has many health benefits but know of no scientific evidence that it clears plaque. There is limited evidence it may lower cholesterol & it may also reduce lead levels as a mild chelator; these properties may help plaque, but it would take more than 3 months. Vit k & glisodin may help even more. ...Read more

I drink an 8 ounce of water w/ a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before going to bed every night. Is there a possibility i can fall into anemia?

Females and Anemia: There is nothing about water and vinegar to discuss. I am not sure why you would consider this as a cause of anemia. Most females who have anemia are not eating enough protein or iron and they lost a lot of blood with their monthly periods. As a side note there is absolutely no medical or health benefit from ingesting vinegar every day. ...Read more

Have a plan: Better: have a plan for getting the right number of calories, balanced nutrition, exercise, fluid intake, sleep & accountability. Tracking your data (calories, nutrition) is very useful (I use LoseIt). A personal traininer or class can be helpful. But make a plan, review wtih knowledgeable clinician, stick to it, BE PATIENT. Lose weight = short term goal & alone never succeeds. Lifestyle is better ...Read more
