Is ACV Safe During Pregnancy?

Posted by SF on 10/13/2007

Is it safe to drink straight ACV when pregnant? If so, how much is safe? I called my doctor and he did not know :(

I would add plenty of water to dilute the acidic ACV such as 2 tablespoon of' ACV to one glass of water. I however, prefer a safer way by neutralizing the solution by using 2 tablespoon of acv plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. The acv chemically is not changed even with the baking soda is added, but they are however, biologically for friendly to the body since the body also needs an available bicarbonate from the baking soda to help the body stabilize the pH that is so important.
