I have heard many different pros and cons about apple cider vinegar supplements, some say that there can be health risks. Should I take them daily?

Vinegar OK, not supps: I'm not sure what you mean by apple cider vinegar (acv) supps- there is little harm in taking acv itself when properly diluted ; some evidence of benefits, but I wouldn't take it in pill form. See http://altmedicine. About. Com/od/applecidervinegardiet/a/applecidervineg. Htm

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

Is vinegar the same as alcohol? If I can't drink due to medication interactions and health reasons, can I have apple cider vinegar safely?

Has no alcohol, safe: Vinegar does not contain alcohol. It has acetic acid, a very different chemical. It is very safe though should be diluted before consuming. There are no proven drug interactions; some sites say large amounts might interact with digoxin, insulin and diuretics because it can lower potassium, but it contains potassium so I doubt that.

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.

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
