Apple Cider Vinegar Doubts
I am considering adding a few teaspoons of ACV to the 1L bottles of water I drink daily. But before I buy ACV, I checked around some sites regarding the remedy. I stumbled upon WebMD and here is what they said:
"Apple cider vinegar is highly acidic. The main ingredient of apple cider vinegar is acetic acid. As the name suggests, it's quite harsh. Apple cider vinegar should always be diluted with water or juice before swallowed. Pure apple cider vinegar could damage the tooth enamel and the tissues in your throat and mouth. One study found a woman who got an apple cider vinegar supplement stuck in her throat. She seemed to have suffered lasting damage to her esophagus. Vinegar has been known to cause contact burns to the skin." (http://www.webmd.com/diet/apple-cider-vinegar?page=2)
Will long term use of ACV cause problems later instead of now? WebMD also claims that ACV will lower potassium and make tooth enamel as well as bones less dense. I really want to try this out, but I also don't want to cause myself any long term effects. I would appreciate any feedback.
