For centuries, the benefits from cider vinegar to fight infection, promote digestion, fighting osteoporosis, have been well known.
Every home with dogs should have Apple Cider Vinegar. It has multiple uses for dogs: alleviating allergies, arthritis, establishing correct pH balance of the system.
One of the first goals on the way to great health is to restore the body's pH to the alkaline range. As nearly all chronic illness takes place in a body that has become acidic due to the gradual depletion of its mineral reserves, it is logical to check on the body's acid/alkaline balance and work towards maintaining it in the alkaline range. The state of the body's acid/alkaline balance can be easily measured by testing the urine using pH strips.
Added to the drinking water, ACV has shown to maintain the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive tract. To find your dog's pH level, get some pH strips at your local drugstore, first thing in the morning test your dog's urine. If the strip reads from 6.5 - 7.0, then your dog's system is what it should be. If the pH is higher, then the system is too alkaline, ACV can help to establish a correct balance.
Use a few drops in your dog's ears after cleaning to avoid ear infections. ACV can be used in the prevention of muscle weakness, arthritis, calluses on elbows and hocks and joints, pimples, and sore joints. It has also been shown to be useful in the prevention of bladder and kidney stones, bladder and kidney infections.
A dog with a correct pH balance is less likely to be bothered by fleas, black flies, ticks, and other external parasites. Less chance of ringworm, staph imfections, streptococcus, mange. If you are already experiencing these problems, dilute ACV with equal amounts of warm water and sponge onto your dog's coat.
You can also mix it up and add to a spray bottle and spray the coat. The ACV balances the pH of the skin and makes it less desirable to bacteria, bugs and infection. Not only that, but their coat is very soft and shiny. Bee and wasp stings, as well as itchy mosquito bites can be soothed by applying undiluted apple cider vinegar to the affected area.

Product Description: Apple cider vinegar is a solution of acidic acid produced by fermentation of apples. It consists of acid, water, and only relatively small quantities of minerals. Although, it does contain a fair amount of pectin, which has recently been identified as lowering cholesterol and may be the secret behind it is fat burning effects. The use of apple cider vinegar for the relief of arthritic stiffness and as a treatment for sore throats, acne, and other skin problems, high blood pressure, headaches, dandruff, sunburn, and elevated cholesterol levels has been around for ages. There have been claims to the effect that the ancient Egyptians who used apple cider vinegar for weight loss created the apple cider vinegar diet. Claims have been made that apple cider vinegar works as an aid in weight loss and fat burning. However, there is no substantial or believable scientific evidence to support this claim. During the diet craze of the 1970?s, proponents claimed that somehow a combination of apple cider, kelp, vitamin B-6, and lecithin tricked the body's metabolism into burning fat faster.

so this will balance ideal ph of the body wether its high and needs to be lowered or low and needs to be raised?i would think most ppl are more acidic and need to get more alkaline.
im going to start adding this to my daily routine good post man!
so two teaspoons in a glass of water on empty stomach upon rising and then same sometime in pm?

Vinegar also works a a glucose disposal agent. Taken post workout and with carb meals it aids in glycogen uptake
07-25-2006, 03:40 AM
yeah itll balance ph levels. It also claims to have a million other benefits. I wouldnt take it on an empty stomach because it almost gags me. id take it with food. i take it once every couple of days.I have noticed i feel better since taking it.Originally Posted by juggernaut333
cool 5150 i didnt know that. Thanks for the additional information.Might have to try that onetime. like mix it with honey or something the taste alone --yuck

Love me some vinegar. Shot of vinegar is just as stout as a shot of jack, chase it
07-28-2006, 04:33 PM
What I do is mix the ACV with a Crystal Light type drink. With this method, you won't taste the vinegar. It's definitely beneficial and I take a shot of it with just about every carb meal.Originally Posted by Grassroots082
07-28-2006, 04:41 PM
Premix a 1:1 ratio of lemon juice (citric acid) and vinegar (acetic acid). Swig a big mouthful of it post workout.
07-28-2006, 04:51 PM
07-28-2006, 05:32 PM
OK, so I'm trying it. It's dirt cheap so why not?
I have noticed a small increase in energy level throughout the day, particularly right after drinking a dose. Tastes gnarly even in OJ, but is doable.
So far, I liken the effects to the energy boost I get from a packet of Emergen-C, only the ACV seems to last longer.
We'll see if it can tackle my acne in the long run.

Do a search (or I will when I get home) at M&M for a Vinegar thread by Spook. Very very intelligent discussion about the aspects of acetic acid and citric acid regarding glycogen transport.
07-28-2006, 07:16 PM
B is right, lots of info in the vinegar article. I will find it..

I dont mean to get too technical here b5150 but cant citric acid effect creatine absorption? (if your taking creatine of course) - just a thought i dotn want to get into a big debate and theory proving here.Originally Posted by B5150
regardless i came to the conclusion apple cider vineger is good for you and i will take it postraining. i like it
11-03-2006, 11:51 PM
Hey, NO ! Never take apple cider vinegar on an empy stomach , its too acidity. Take right after you finish your meal, mis it in a cup of water. I have found if i take ACV , Apple Cider Vineger, for a few days i seem to drop weight. I now take it once every so often to balance PH levels, and if i want to drop a few pounds , give it 5-3 days before the date you want to look your best on. So i dont take it every day, like i should lol, i take it every so often, and try to get it at least once a week, and esp use it at times when i really think i need it.or want to drop a few lbs.Originally Posted by juggernaut333
I like to take it after a whole food meal.
11-04-2006, 01:44 AM
good post.. been taking Bragg's for a while now. "With The Mother"
11-04-2006, 12:06 PM
Been using for a while too. Not getting any fatloss that I can see, but I use it about every day mixed with an Emergen-C packet and wow, does it give a nice sustained energy boost. Just feel better overall which is nice.
It is indeed, a good cheap supplement.
11-04-2006, 02:28 PM
if it alkalinizes the body ph how is it acidic?
does everyone take it with food and none on an empty stomach?just curious

It means it's kinda like an active culture. There are chains of aminos produced in the fermentation process that are supposedly responsible for numerous health benefits.
I have been taking mine on an empty stomach with no issues, in fact it seems to perk me up faster that way.
11-05-2006, 01:56 AM
bioman is right Juggs.
and yeah, empty stomach.

Do you notice it warming you up? I start sweating like mad for about 45 minutes everytime I take a swig of ACV.Originally Posted by bioman
If you guys like ACV, you should try some raw Kombucha. More expensive but quite potent. But it must be raw. Pastuerizing kombucha defeats the purpose.

Haven't noticed a temp change although it's been pretty chilly here. My sweat smells different though..in case you wanted to know. lol
I have to say that my skin is clearing up quite a bit and it may be attributable to the ACV. If it can get rid of my cystic acne, then it's worth it's weight in gold.
11-08-2006, 12:41 AM
rampage, I take my pants off whenever i damn well please. My next updated avy is going to be of my glutes.
I don't think my sweat smells different... but then again, it would make sense eh Bioman?
Good stuff, I actually like the taste.
I think I've posted enough in this thread though. peace!

As counter intuitive as it is, but you're right. Funny thing, most heart burn is caused by carbs, especially the mixture of alkaline carbs with acidic meats (too common in America). Causes your stomach to "overproduce".Originally Posted by ryano

In my ongoign research I have recently found out that ACV juiceswollowed on a regular basis can cause your teeth enamel to come off. There are a few solutions...here are some
Brush your teeth after SCV use...(liquid)
Some say braggs brand doesnt cause the enamel to come off your teeth because it doesnt have sugar in it. something about ones that have sugar in them cause this; although No sugar context is listed(?)
maybe thats why braggs is popular. Regardless ACV is an effective supplement in balancing PH levels with-in normal range, weightloss, and a whole many more benifits. Arnold used to drink gallons of this stuff ive heard.
03-20-2007, 01:06 PM
From using it over the last 6 months or so, I have noticed that it along with 30,000 iu of vitamin A and consistent use of Liv 52 have cleared up my chronic cystic acne better than anything else I have used thus far..and I've used it all...anti B's, accutane, topicals et cetera.
03-25-2007, 10:28 PM
Does anyone notice is effecting creatine aborption?
I think to take it seperate from creatine.
03-26-2007, 01:23 AM
I've added CEE to it and nothing unusual happened to me that I can tell. lol
04-06-2007, 04:47 PM
About the tooth enamel thing. Are you sure it's from sugar not the acid? I heard you should not brush your teeth after drinking things like citrus juice or pop because those drinks soften the enamel. So if you brush your teeth right after you are risking scraping off enamel, not protecting it. I think the best thing to do would be to just rince your mouth out with water after drinking the ACV.
04-06-2007, 05:11 PM
I have read that it is best to rinse your mouth with water after drinking ACV or lemon juice.
04-06-2007, 05:48 PM
Just bought Braggs ACV. Braggs is the only one Ive found in my research that doesnt eat the enamel off the teeth.
04-07-2007, 04:03 PM
i've been taking acv as a supplement on and off for a year of so now,and when i was taking it regularly,i noticed a disctinct craving for salt.i assumed it was because of the potassium in the acv,has anyone else noticed this?
