Apple Cider Vinegar Capsule Benefits
Effectiveness of apple cider vinegar for reflux? Was taking famotidine - gave me headaches. Other benefits? Is capsule form as effective as liquid?
Works well for many: Like many natural therapies, there is no formal research I know of on apple cider vinegar for reflux, but many find it effective. On this website 21 of 23 who tried it report it effective: http://earthclinic. Com/cures/heartburn.Html & people find it useful for many other things.

Does the pill/caplet form of apple cider vinegar work as well as the liquid form? I ordered the caplets from puritan. Com. Other benefits of avc (sulfanilamide)?
Why use it?: What do you use acv for? I cannot tell you if caplet work as well as the liquid as I don't prescribe the liquid for anything and I don't know what it is used to treat. I read on the internet that it is used for weight loss, heart burn and keeping flees away. I have seen no evidence that it does any of those things. Sorry. Read more

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
I want to know what is the difference between taking apple cider vinegar in liquid form versus pill form?
Liquid is genuine: Apple cider pills may or may not actually contain apple cider. Research analysis of ac pills reported amount of ac content to vary from some to as little as none. Pills can burn esophagus &/or stomach whereas liquid can be diluted. Consult you dr if ur taking any medications as ac can interfere or interact. Why take ac in first place? Good for salad, but little evidence any other use! Read more

What are the benefits of drinking a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily? Old timers swear by it for good health.
Usually it's diluted: In a glass of water and not taken straight if a person has stomach issues, as it is acidic in nature. You may want to discuss this with your doctor to see if you can benefit from this or not. It's not for everyone, and if you are taking medications, you definitely should run it past your doctor first to make sure it's for you. Read more
Information: Probably none other than normal fluid replacement. Read more

Apple cider vinegar: Mixed w/water can be used to help reflux symptoms. Beyond that it does not need to be used daily. Be sure to purchase apple cider vinegar "with the mother."

Is filtered apple cider vinegar beneficial for health? Can it be used for the same health benefits as unfiltered?
Are you lost?: Sorry, but since this is a traditional medical site this sort of treatment will not be as recognized as it may on others. But we are open-minded. I personally find it very helpful for heartburn w/ a pinch of baking soda. This is symptom relief - not 'health'. Read online and try it for your concern. It's probably safe for most 'healthy' adults. Read more

I take Apple Cider Vinegar POWDER in capsule form from Dynamic Nutrition. I take 1 or 2 capsules per day to alkalize Is it ok for my stomach acid?
No, avoid it.: Apple cider vinegar is high in acetic acid. Contrary to the popular wisdom on the nets, it does not improve acid reflux. In fact, powdered capsules of ACV can cause serious esophageal burns if the capsule lodges in the esophagus. You are much better off using standard antacids and seeing your doctor if you have reflux more than 2-3 times per week. Good luck. Read more
