I've seen the acv supplements in pill form. Does anyone think that these work as well as regular acv or should I just stick to acv on my salads?

This is utter nonsense. Distilled water is not recommended as drinking water as it can, at least in theory leach minerals from the body.

Spring water may or may not have any more or fewer minerals than ordinary tap water.

Drinking bottled water is only safer or healthier than ordinary tap water if you live in an area with unsafe water. Your local health department can tell you about what is in your local water supply both before and after it is treated.

Your body has no trouble using the nutrients in any food whether the nutrients come in with, or dissolved in ordinary tap water.

This thread got me thinking, I got some ACV a while back to mix with grapefruit juice but gave it up realizing I was using up 100+ calories from my allotment by drinking the juice. This evening with dinner, I tried putting 2T ACV in my bottle of perrier which I love anyways, but it came out so good! It wasn't tart or strong, it just added a little sweetness and flavor to the water. I think I will have to make this every night now.

I vastly prefer red wine vinegar to cider vinegar, and the web MD article linked above actually mention white vinegar as bestowing some of the proported benefits. Does it matter between white, red wine or apple cider?

I've been taking ACV and coconut oil everyday for the health benefits for quite some time. I decided stop the ACV for a while because it was lowering my blood pressure too much to the point where I got lightheaded.

I miss my ACV & fresh lemon water drink in the morning, but I am feeling much better since my blood pressure back to normal.

Funny, I'm on a plan that doesn't allow vinegar because it slows weight-loss... so they claim.

I use ACV for all kinds of things. Dilute and mix with fresh veggies for a salad.

Full strength, add 1/2 cup salt and Dawn dish soap a great weed killer!

1 cup ACV, 1/3 cup lemon juice, add water to fill 16 oz spray bottle, great cleaner!

Add 1/4 cup to each load in your dishwasher! No spots or water marks!

I also add 1/2 cup of ACV in my washer when I do laundry. We are allergic to scented detergent and softeners. The ACV, gets the clothes cleaner and leave them nice and soft!

Vinegar has a lot of great uses, however, it, like a lot of other "miracle" cures, will not take the place of eating healthy and exercising to the best of your ability.

I have used ACV in the mornings with half a glass of hot water, and a teaspoon of pure honey and drink it like a tea. It tastes pretty good, and I think I should probably go back to drinking it.

What does it do?? Well, some studies say it aids in weight loss, that it does xyz... and honestly, I think it is just up to the persons body as to what it actually does.

I remember back in the day when I was just a freshman in high school, my grandma got a book on vinegar and its many uses. It covered regular o'l vinegar, and the apple cider vinegar. All I can say is, she thought vinegar was the answer to everything (just like Windex in MBFGW).
Don't mind me. I'm an invisible person who everyone forgot. No friends, no support. Nothing. Thanks 3FC for making me realize how invisible I really am!
