It would help if you add what symptoms it helps with and how much you take and when.Do you use a certain type, or just the stuff in the regular grocery store?

Hi Kathleen, If you do a Google search for Apple Cider Vinegar benefits you'll see it appears to be a natural anti-fungal, anti-inflamatory digestive aid and tonic. Organic would be best and I hardly put the recommendation on an IBS forum because it may help with ingrown toenails. Good day to you. Bhop.

Sure I can google it, but usually people here do want to know details about what actually worked for you, personally, who has IBS rather than info on the web that may be written by someone who has no idea what IBS is.So again, which symptoms did it help with?How much do you take each day?How many days, hours, weeks, months, years, did it take for you, personally, to see the benefit?Otherwise you look like someone that answered a Craigslist ad that gets paid per post that mentions the words Apple Cider Vinegar (and some people do get paid to post certain words or phrases over and over in post after post and never actually used the product, or at least that is what the Craigslist ads promise....not sure if anyone really ever makes money doing it. :( ).One of the powers of the message board and a support group is we share details about our personal experience, not just tell people to google stuff especially since the info on websites selling or promoting stuff often is inaccurate or incomplete.People are much more likely to try something if you say something about your experience with it rather than just say do it do it do it do it on a bunch of threads.

Hi again Kathleen, I had IBS-D for 5 years which I believe was caused by vitamin D deficiency - after taking supplements for a short time it appeared to clear up. Then I began to have acid reflux and Apple Cider Vinegar was recommended. The results with my all round well being were very impressive and when I looked up its other benefits I concluded that it may help anyone with IBS too. It's very cheap and it is definitely worth a try. I hope it works for you. Two tablespoons mixed with a couple of ounces of water three times a day is recommended. It doesn't taste too good but it's a small price to pay if it works.Bhop.

P.S. I have not been paid to endorse this product. The bottle I bought cost less than $2 in a health food shop.

bhop -Thanks for the details. Very helpful to know them so that we can compare notes. Good quality natural apple cider vinegar is known to boost or improve the immune system. And vit. D3 is known to help boost it as well. So, between the two you may have given your body just the boost it needed at the right time. Do be sure to keep those D3 levels up, especially during the winter months when we're not out in the sun as often.

I take a shot of it a day, Bragg is the brand, all organic. Doesn't do much for me as far as I can tell.

So the Apple Cider Vinegar was initially for acid reflux not IBS D OR C. As you can read above, Bhop was deficient in Vitmain D and took supplements and as I read it...THAT was what helped with the D... not the vinegar.Hope this helps

Hi Again, Had I been aware of Apple Cider Vinegar 5 years ago when my IBS-D began - and knowing what I know now - I would have taken it. It's a natural anti-inflamatory and anti-fungal. It cleanses your organs and blood. So even if it doesn't cure IBS - it would certainly ease the symptoms. I'm surprised at the hostility it seems to have attracted. Prescribed drugs - with God knows what side effects are recommended regularly on this forum to reduce bloating etc. and surely if you can get the same benefits from a natural source it would be better for your body. Again I want to stress that I am not trying to advertise it in some subversive manner - I bought a bottle for less than $2 dollars and it lasted for two weeks - so I'd make a pretty pathetic excuse for a scam artist.If I've made my case badly or if you don't believe it will help - then don't take it.Thank you,Bhop.

I don't see any "hostility". I see people wanting more information than you originally gave them.

I'm all for people sharing what has helped or even cured them of IBS but your original post was a bit deceptive. If this product didn't cure your IBS and vitamin D did then why start a post promoting its use? I don't think I have ever heard someone say that this has cured or greatly helped there symptoms so you would be the first one and it would be of interest to many people on here who read these forums but to promote it for the sake of promoting isn't doing anyone any favors.I have mild acne and i take it because of its claimed skin benefits but it doesn't do ###### for me in either manner.

I took this for acid reflux as it was supposed to be a miracle cure, it wasn't though. Made me feel sick and the acid felt worse. Didn't help the IBS one bit

Bhop-I absolutely adore vinegar and hate fats-I try not to have too much cos I think it may make my IBS-d worse. Are you saying this is a good thing for me to take. It would be great news for me!

believe it or not, but vinegar is acetic acid...........& acetic acid is one of the many waste acids that our bodies put off as a by product of biological activity.............so by adding more, u could b over loading ur tissues..........the reason some people get some relief from it, is it is an acid.........the stomach' Ph rises all the time & when u don't produce enough hydrochloric acid (HCl) in ur stomach, there's very little to keep the Ph low, where it's suppose to b, around 2-3 when not eating, after food is added, it's suppose to go lower..........so if the Ph is going up & ur own stomach can't get it down in the normal way, then it can borrow those waste acids to try to do the job in a pinch.........& ur kidneys still have to get rid of all those waste acids.........if u've been sick a long time, it can slow down ur kidneys, so there is more of these wastes running thru ur blood, building up...........& by recycling something that is already a waste, it can end up being a real problem........now, don't get me wrong, i did the whole vinegar thing...........until it didn't work anymore & i ended up throwing up alot........my body just couldn't take anymore wastes, i had enough all by myself, w/o adding more..........vinegar is not suppose to b the acid ur stomach uses, that's HCl............this is what ur stomach needs.........it's the only inorganic acid ur body produces naturally..........& it does alot more than keep the Ph low in ur stomach, alot more..........it's necessary for life.........

People just want to know what works. I have heard that ACV works before. As a matter of fact, Sly Stallone raves about it in his book. I have never tried it on a test basis. Maybe I will.So, does that damn stuff work or not? Let us know.

Hard to know if it works or not, or for what percentage of people. Nothing every works for everyone.It certainly is a treatment that a lot of people swear by and believe helps them, but I don't think there are any large clinical trials to have a lot of hard data to use.It seems relatively harmless to try. Even if we had data that said it helps 99% of the people, you could still be in the 1% so even treatments that are proven to work may not work for you.

Can someone explain how Apple cider vinegar works as an antifugal product but ordinary vinegar is supposed to not be taken in a case of candida infection.What is the difference between the two?
