Drop of vinegar before sleeping may improve body composition

I did not notice anything positive with regular non organic ACV. I noticed a significant difference since switching to an organic source
Just buy the organic version and save the hassle of downing regular vinegar with the intention of saving...$1-2

ok well i opened up my cabinets and found some ACV, now its store brand so i know its not organic. this will be good for both GH and very light acne?

I had traditional rice vinegar (so called sushi vinegar), tatse nice but it was mixed with salt and seasoning, too salty. I did have great dream but not sure it's because of this.
Back to my country we do drank 'vinegar drink' which is some smooth taste natural vinegar with 20 times or so of icy water, plus honey or sugar.
I don't mind if it's organic but I do like natural vinegar (organic or not) because of flavor. I can't take water-like white vinegar... it's just diluted acetic acid. slightly yellow rice white vinegar is a totally different story.

I said I would update so hear it is. after a week and a half, I would like to say tat my skin is a little better, but I don't whant to get my hopes up. I will say that I don't think Im getting new pimples as easily, but once again, lets not get the hopes up.

Still having vivid dreams 3 nights in... Dosing 1 tbsp before bed. So based on past experience with other hgh supps you take at night. I'd say it's working?

Yeah, **** is nasty. I put a bit of water in my mouth and then down a tblsp of ACV, makes it bearable.

Just got back on the ACV regimen last night. Dreams were definitely notched up a good bit.
For example, think of a baby that is jacked and can walk and talk and smoke cigars? A mobster baby in my dream!

ahh a little bit wouldnt hurt.
i did think of that, i was about to put some sugar in a glass with it and thought, well if vinegar lowers blood glucose levels wouldnt this equal it out?
i dont see it messing up GH release. honey's all natural it also has some health benefits.
04-29-2010, 06:29 PM
Insulin is supposed to blunt GH, and honey still has carbs. Having said that, I know plenty of kids who loved their sweets and still grew to be tall, so I think some people are a little to afraid of the whole GH insulin issue.

I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar for a few years. Originally I used it for glycogen partitioning, but have since been more interested in alkalizing effects of foods. Even though APV is acidic with a PH ranging between 3.5-7 (depending on the brand), when digested the citric acid in APV breaks down and form alkaline ions (postassium citrate or magnesium citrate). It actually increases alkalinity once digested, which is interesting, at least for me. I'm still pretty new to the whole ionizing and alkalizing schools of thought, but it certainly is worth looking into. I have good friends that swear by it.

thanks ive learned something.
now to learn what else we can use to coat the taste of the shot?
this maybe would explain me having dreams but there not as vivid
my dreams are like me reading a book and not like watching a movie.

I gave this a shot last night. I slept very well and had some good dreams though I don't remember any of them! Worth repeating for sure.
04-30-2010, 12:24 PM
may i ask, what sort of dosage/amount were you taking when trying to achieve glycogen partitioning?
And with regards to the alkalizing effect...does that just mean basic (ie a pH above 7)? If so, could you not simply eat an abundance of fruits and vegetables to cancel out this acidic effect that our body produces? OR, is the effect of ACV t hat great when it comes to alkalizing?
Either way, we can both agree ACV has an abundance of good health benefits!
And to everyone else regarding about masking the taste, you can buy some sort of citrus juice (such as orange, grapefruit or apple juice) and put your ACV in it. Wont even know its in there!

Still sleeping like a baby after a week. Vivid dreams still coming every night. So far so good!
Also, after googling ACV + health benefits there is a lot of recommendations for ACV and Honey mixed together. They're not necessarily speaking of this mixture before bed for GH releases but for drinking with meals throughout the day for fat loss I believe?
Any way, googling this turns up some interesting reads.

I take apple cider vinigar everyday about 2-4oz worth (helpes GREAT with acne) pluse its just healthy for you.
look into it trust me.....
04-30-2010, 01:53 PM
You guys are saying this is improving your sleep quality?
I would do a whole shot if it does anything
04-30-2010, 04:03 PM
yes it is definatley doing something.
but everyone need to be careful. if you start to get a scratch in your throat and it makes you cough a little bit thats a clear sign that your getting too much.
and also ive read that rubbing some on your face reduces redness and improves your complextion
