As much as this liquid is healthy, it also has some serious side effects as well, therefore, you need to be very careful when consuming apple cider vinegar. This post will cover everything you need to know about the side effects of apple cider vinegar.

Below, you will learn how apple cider vinegar is made, how to consume it correctly, its side effects, and some preventative measure you need to take when drinking apple cider vinegar.

Side Effects Of Apple Cider Vinegar

Before we go over the many side effects of apple cider vinegar, let’s take a moment to see what is apple cider vinegar and how exactly is it made. Apple cider vinegar is made by simply combining yeast with apples, the sugars from the apples are then converted by the yeast into alcohol and finally, bacteria is added for fermentation.

This whole process changes the alcohol from the apples, yeast, and bacteria into acetic acid. Although the acetic acids found in apple cider vinegar is only 6% it is still strong enough to cause your body harm when consumed in large amounts.

Apple cider vinegar also contains some important vitamins and minerals that help with conditions like high cholesterol, weight loss, high blood sugar levels, and insulin sensitivity.

Here Are The Side Effects of Apple Cider Vinegar

1. Gastroparesis & Type 1 Diabetes

Some studies show that people with type 1 diabetes or gastroparesis who drank apple cider vinegar mixed with water saw an increase in the amount of time it took to empty food from the small intestines.

This is due to the fact that apple cider vinegar is known to help decrease high blood sugar levels by slowing down how fast the food you eat enters the lower digestive tract. Although this may have a positive effect on healthy people, it is known to worsen the symptoms of gastroparesis and type 1 diabetes.

2. Digestion

Apple cider vinegar has been found to cause indigestion and nausea in a group of people who consumed it with other other beverages. Drinking apple cider vinegar with plain water leads to less appetite and a feeling of fullness. Other studies showed that people who were feeling a loss of appetite suffered from indigestion.

3. Potassium & Bone Loss

Drinking large amounts of apple cider vinegar over a long period of time can cause a considerable amount of low potassium levels in the blood and increase the risk of bone loss. Other studies show that drinking apple cider vinegar longterm can lead to the reduction of the formation of new bone.

4. Teeth Damage

Research shows that people who drank large amounts of apple cider vinegar without diluting it with water suffered dental erosion due to the acid found in it. This side effect can be prevented by simply consuming recommended amounts mixed with water through straws.

5. Headaches And Nausea

Studies done on a group of people showed that drinking apple cider vinegar upon waking up in the morning caused headaches and nausea symptoms. When you drink apple cider vinegar, your body goes through a detoxification process that causes the brain to release toxins into the bloodstream.

A simple way to prevent this is by consuming apple cider vinegar before you eat lunch and make sure to dilute it with enough water.

6. Burning In The Throat

The acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar can cause throat burns or throat irritation in some people especially when consumed without mixing it with water first. It is also recommended that you carefully swallow apple cider vinegar when taken in pill forms to reduce your chances of getting it lodged in your throat.

7. Skin Burns

This side effect is not uncommon, there have been cases where people experienced skin erosions after applying apple cider vinegar directly onto the skin. A simple remedy to prevent skin allergies or burns associated with apple cider vinegar is to mix it with juice, honey or water before applying it to the skin.

8. Low Blood Sugar Levels

Although apple cider vinegar can be very effective in treating or stabilizing blood sugar levels, it is recommended that you do not use it long term or in large doses. Consuming apple cider vinegar in large amounts can cause extremely low blood sugar levels which cuts off glucose supply to the brain.

This can sometimes lead to coma and in rare cases death. If you suffer from low blood sugar or hypoglycemia, please consult with your doctor before drinking apple cider vinegar.

9. Flush Out Nutrients

Apple cider vinegar has a diuretic effect on the body, it helps remove toxins from the body when consumed correctly but it also washes out important nutrients and minerals from the body too. This can be prevented by taking multivitamins when on an apple cider vinegar diet or eating foods high in magnesium and potassium.

10. Medications

Apple cider vinegar can be dangerous when consumed along with some medications so you need to be very careful if you suffer from any of the following conditions.

Diabetics; If you are on insulin medications, please consult with your doctor before consuming apple cider vinegar.
Potassium Deficiency: If you suffer from potassium deficiency, please consult with your doctor before drinking apple cider vinegar.
Diuretics: If you are on any diuretic medications, please consult with your doctor before taking apple cider vinegar.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
