Cider vinegar - do you use?

I have read it goes good things for balancing blood sugar and may even aid weight loss. But, Christ, it tastes like hell even diluted.

by Anonymousreply 56May 30, 2021 1:10 AM

Yes I do. Bragg’s only....I also dilute it and use it on my face as an astringent before my retin-a. Janice Dickinson mentions it in her book....and we don’t need a million cracks about how she looks now....give the gal a break. she held on for a good long time

You have read bullshit OP, there is no evidence it does a damn thing but dress a salad.

I use a dash to flavor my urine before I drink it every morning, and at night I dilute my urine with a bit of Bragg's before I use it on my face.

My grandfather would drink a shot every day. He loved it. He also ate beets each day. He was also a dandy and a tenor. He wore bespoke suits made in Italy and silk socks and smoked a pack of unfiltered cigarettes he rolled each day through an ivory pipe. All his perfumes were made in France to complement the smell of the tobacco and he filled his house with flowers or fresh berries or whatever was in season. He drank something at each meal each day and he swore by vinegar shots and herring. He died at 95 in his silk smoking jacket.

Your body processes it like alcohol, because it is basically broken down alcohol. I used to take a shot daily and it felt like taking a shot of booze going down. Good for decalcification in general, but especially arteries and glands.

R14 My paternal grandmother (RIP) would have befriended your grandfather if not committed adultery against one of her husbands (she was married a time or two or three) with him. She made her own perfume oils from her garden flowers and perhaps voodoo for all anyone should know. She also only created outfits (sometimes by hand, meaning hand sewn and not with a sewing machine) which complemented her designer purse and shoe collection. Shopping with her was a trip because she would draw out ideas upon outfits which didn't work well with her height since she was one for modest lengths. She always wore her hair more modern than her era and created her own leave in conditioners. Alas she would have deemed apple cider vinegar an intolerable mixer and would have banished it from her living room bar eternally lest she mistake it for a unique form of bourbon.

I adore a fine and proper dandy darling. Prince was kinda sorta one and yet not really. He was far too short to fit a finely tailored suit. Wonderful musician and entertainer, though.

What's the difference between apple cider vinegar with the mother versus without the mother? And what is the mother exactly? Is it like vinegar placenta or something?

The Thanksgiving before last I caught a horrible cold. Maybe it was a precursor to Covid-19 so I later wound up calling it Aunt Rona. It was horrible. Dragged on and on almost to Christmas Day itself. I felt as though I was in the ending stages of tuberculosis with an added bonus of the beginning stages of scarlet fever. A friend of mine brought me some of the hippie vinegar with the mother, father, and perhaps the Holy Ghost and told me to take three shots a day. Maybe it helped the antibiotics along? I don't know but I think it might have done a wee bit of help because that's some strong stuff and it perhaps does kill some germs or bacterium. It's not horrible straight if you drizzle honey in your shots

R23, the important bit is that acetic acid hits your blood stream and gets metabolized by your body, like alcohol. Acetic acid is also known to dissolve minerals such as calcium, hence the effects noted by R5. So while it's in your bloodstream it's dissolving calcification (made up of calcium and lipids) within the body. Does that make sense?

R33 - maybe the acid hit your gut really hard. I have acid reflux and I have a passion for V8 or tomato juice with a ton of fresh lemon squeezed into it. I even add salt and pepper. Anyway, as I hit 42, that and coffee (love espresso) and beer have become hard to tolerate. I even threw up stomach acid. My ENT put me on a alkalinic diet for 3 months and had me take an antacid 30 minutes before breakfast and that did wonders for me.

by Anonymousreply 35May 28, 2021 5:10 PM

Reflux is a sign of poor general gut health. You can fix it with natural probiotics. I use fresh sauerkraut and it totally changed my life. I went from using one of the big quart jars of Tums every few weeks to NEVER. I am serious I had my work Tums and my home Tums. I would take them just before bed even if I felt ok in hopes of not waking up in the middle of the night with reflux. When we talk about decalcification up thread well that is what I was decalcifying from.

The bacteria in your microbiome live in the mucous membrane of your digestive tract. They maintain it as their home. It's that same mucous membrane that protects your esophagus from getting burned by acid. There are a ton of other great effects from keeping your microbiome healthy but the lack of heartburn was one of the most dramatic for me. Apple cider vinegar (with the mother) actually HELPS with heartburn now, but I prefer a swig of sauerkraut brine which works better and doesn't burn at all.

Where do you find sauerkraut brine? Do you just buy the sauerkraut?

by Anonymousreply 37May 29, 2021 1:17 AM

I used to buy it from a company called Superkrauts. It's actually hard to find unpasteurized sauerkraut, at least that tastes good. I was spending like $60 a week at first. So I started making it myself. It's very cheap and easy and it tastes great. You also get the benefit of a "wild ferment" which is better than commercial monocultures because in the probiotics game diversity is key.

As with many home remedies jury is still out or all over the place on benefits of consuming vinegar.

Small amount likely won't cause harm, but beware if have issues like gastric reflux, frequent heartburn, etc.. As the extra acidity can aggravate such conditions.

Friend was given a bottle of flavored Italian drinking vinegar. Had one glass with dinner diluted as per instructions and thought all was good. It tasted nice, was refreshing and didn't seem to cause any issues. Few hours later he went to bed... then all Hell broke loose!

Said he had the worse heartburn/acid reflux of his life, it took a good dose of Gaviscon to bring any relief. That bottle of drinking vinegar went right into the garbage....

Think much comes down to dosage and one's individual body system.

Those already prone to or having constant issues with GRD or just bad heartburn are wise to seek physician's advice before downing vinegar.

Well it's refrigeration shipped, and you had to buy a minimum amount for shipping so yeah it adds up! That's why I started making it myself. 1 cabbage is enough to make 2 full quarts of kraut and brine. That lasts me about a month these days so I spend like half an hour a month making kraut.

by Anonymousreply 48May 29, 2021 2:11 AM

I think also my body really craved it at first because when I started eating it I was going through a jar every couple days. I love pickles and fermented foods already so I like the taste but it also made me feel better in many ways so I just kept shoveling it in. Eventually my cravings calmed down but I still try to eat a little bit every day, like a silver dollar sized amount.

R36 - anywhere I can read more about the mind-gut axis?

by Anonymousreply 52May 29, 2021 6:36 AM

R52 I just found this article. From the abstract:

[quote] The gut-brain axis (GBA) consists of bidirectional communication between the central and the enteric nervous system, linking emotional and cognitive centers of the brain with peripheral intestinal functions. Recent advances in research have described the importance of gut microbiota in influencing these interactions. This interaction between microbiota and GBA appears to be bidirectional, namely through signaling from gut-microbiota to brain and from brain to gut-microbiota by means of neural, endocrine, immune, and humoral links. In this review we summarize the available evidence supporting the existence of these interactions, as well as the possible pathophysiological mechanisms involved.

Think of your body as a simple tube. The outside of the tube is your skin. The inside of the tube is the lining of your digestive system. Within the walls of the tube are all of your organs managed by the nervous and endocrine systems. That's the gut-brain-skin axis. All of the inner and outer surfaces of the tube are exposed to the environment and are dependent on the microbiome for healthy function and protection from pathogens and other hazards.
