    I have not tried regular white vinegar (yuck!) but i would put my input on regular ACV (non-organic).

    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

    Are you referring to GH purposes or acne. The srudy says that regular vinager is still good for GH. For acne, every where I look says that you specifically need the stuff that isn't pasturized, and has a little sediment in the bottle.

    you got to try.

    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.

    as i said, i have tried regular ACV with little to no desired effect

    since you have it already, it wouldnt hurt to try it

    let us know how it goes!

    I doubt...
    OK, it's a seasoning anyway, so some people do have it everyday (like in Greece or China or Japan).
    A dose of one to two spoons before bed isn't really too much.

    i also want to mention that in the past, if i double the dose, it SEEMS to better the effects

    for example, if i feel a pimple is coming on, i will double my dose of ACV and it will either go away or not develop into something too horrendous

    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?

    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!

    this would negate the effects a bit i would imagine. if your looking to drop blood sugar a bit eating sugar probably isn't the thing to do

    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.

    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.

    As far as i know GH is realesed because BGL and insulin is lower. ACV only lowered BGL by 4% on average though so the honey would completely defeat the point in taking ACV unless its for acne issues which, for me, i have found non organic does nothing for it

    thanks ive learned something.

    now to learn what else we can use to coat the taste of the shot?
    cinamin?

    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.

    Cinnamon usually doesnt mix wel with liquid, which explains the lack of cinnamon protein shakes. Try it though. The acid might melt it. Cinnamon also lowers blood sugar.

    interesting...

    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.

    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
