How often can you drink apple cider vinegar?
The benefits of apple cider vinegar are plenty and many view it as a supportive aid for weight loss. Although this requires more research, there are many other potential benefits such as reducing high blood pressure, lowering blood glucose levels in those with diabetes and it even has antimicrobial properties which can be useful in treating infections.
With a myriad of benefits, it is no wonder that some people include it into their daily diet. Some, however, are concerned about its acidity - how much and how often can you drink apple cider vinegar?
Consuming too many acidic foods and beverages can cause damage to the tooth enamel, which leaves teeth prone to cavities and sensitivity. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar can also be irritating or damaging to the throat when consumed frequently in its undiluted form.
You can consume apple cider vinegar in small amounts in food and dressings or to dilute it with water before drinking. As a guide, take 1-2 teaspoons or 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day mixed in a glass of water.
It is recommended to take it no more than twice a day to prevent side effects such as nausea and erosion of tooth enamel.
Apple cider vinegar appears to be safe, as long as you don’t take it in excessive amounts.
