Should I have it before a meal or after ?
Let's talk about eight Apple Cider vinegar rules .
You need to follow .
Number one , don't drink it straight .
Kicking things off .
One of the best advice we can give you is to drink apple cider mixed with something else .
You didn't seriously think we were going to drink a full glass of it .
Did you ?
And how about your water or your tea ?
The vinegar might give it a unique sort of kick , you know , similar to how you're growing .
Father pours a bit of whiskey into his coffee .
We are not recommending that by the way , the reason you shouldn't drink it straight is because there are several effects it can have on your body , consuming it in large quantities while it's in its pure form .
Will seriously hurt your insides .
Let's dive into those details .
Number two , don't drink it before bed .
Apple cider vinegar is ok to have during the day .
But if you drink it before going to sleep , you're asking for trouble .
Apple cider vinegar really does a number on your throat .
It'll give it a burning sensation that drives you crazy .
This isn't a pleasant way to end the day .
Have you ever had esophagitis ?
Let me turn off the science talk .
Have you ever had throat burn ?
This is a condition where your throat becomes irritated , causing it to swell up and burn .
In the case of apple cider vinegar .
It's acid content is very powerful .
If you're laying down , it can hurt your esophagus to the point where it feels like it's on fire .
In one incident from 2005 , a woman swallowed an apple cider vinegar tablet when it got lodged in her throat .
It caused really painful burn .
So painful that she reportedly had trouble swallowing for as long as six months after just as a measure of caution .
If you do have a little apple cider vinegar before bed , make sure you sit up right for at least 30 minutes before hitting the pillow .
This will ensure that there's no acid reflux and your esophagus isn't irritated .
You don't want to wake up feeling like your throat is being barbecued .

Number three , apply carefully to skin .
If apple cider vinegar can irritate your throat , just think about what it can do to your skin , it can cause your skin to react dramatically .
This is if you're using it wrong when applied properly .
Apple cider vinegar can get rid of pimples and dandruff .
It's like a teenager's dream acne product .
Apple Cider vinegar can also ease your sunburn .
Applying apple cider vinegar to your skin can boost the skin's ph level and strengthen its protective barriers helping you withstand those harmful rates .
Studies have even shown that Apple Cider vinegar is more effective in skin treatment than certain soaps and cleansers .
I'm talking about actual products specifically made to treat your skin .
If you suffer from acne , you're probably wondering where you can get your hands on some of this stuff .
But keep in mind it will only work if a minimal amount is used .
This again is due to its acid content .
If you're not diluting Apple Cider vinegar , when applying , it'll kill skin cells and even leave chemical burns depending on how much you applied .
These markings can be semi permanent seriously .
There was one particular incident where a 14 year old girl suffered erosions on her nose after applying Apple Cider vinegar to her face , it turns out she was trying to remove moles and she had read bogus information online .
So be cautious and don't overuse apple cider vinegar .
Especially not to get rid of permanent markings .
Number four , don't drink too much apple cider vinegar is good for you .
But in moderation , keep that word in mind because of its numerous health benefits .
It might be your first instinct to down half a bottle in one sitting .
This is wrong .
People have different reactions to certain drinks and apple cider vinegar is no exception .
If you're new to this drink , it's advised that you ease into it .
Drinking too much , too quickly can really upset your stomach .
You might also feel an intense burning sensation similar to the one we described with your throat .
If you'd like to give apple cider vinegar a try start with no more than two tablespoons a day .
This will lower your chances of getting a harmful reaction .
Drink it with some water for starters .
Number five , don't inhale this .
You know how your teacher told you not to sniff glue as a kid .
Well , the same goes for apple cider vinegar when used with steam .
Apple cider vinegar can release , leave your sinuses by stopping infections .
It can also prevent headaches but breathing it in on its own .
That's dangerous business .
Inhaling apple cider vinegar will really beat up your lungs .
Think about it , you're exposing your insides to raw acidic liquid that has the potential to burn .
I mean , you can't fool around with this stuff while you can drink it in small quantities .
Do your best to avoid breathing it in .
This begins the moment you open the container and oh yeah , you need to stay away from sniffing glue too before we continue .

Now , back to our list of eight apple Cider vinegar rules .
You need to follow number six drink before eating .
You know how they tell you not to go swimming right after you eat while the same applies to apple cider vinegar .
If you wanna mix a drink with some apple cider vinegar , make sure you do it before your meal .
The best time to drink apple cider vinegar is on an empty stomach .
It takes about 6 to 8 hours for your food to pass through your stomach and down into your small intestine .
The vinegar sharpens your ability to digest food .
Having some apple cider vinegar right before your meal will prepare your body to process it .
But that's not the only benefit to this practice .
It's also said that drinking apple cider vinegar before a meal can help you feel full quicker .
A study from 2005 showed that apple cider vinegar before food can lower your calorie intake between 200 to 275 calories .
If you're looking to lose weight , this is something you can try for all you daredevils out there .
If you're going to drink it after your meal , I would recommend you wait at least 20 minutes .
Number seven , don't take swigs .
We all hate that friend that walks around in the summertime with a bottle of alcohol , taking arrogant sips whenever they feel .
I mean , come on , there's a time and a place for that and please put a shirt on .
Well , taking swigs of apple cider vinegar is also a no , no , but for health reasons to put it simply don't take sips from the container .
Not only are you over using it ?
The acid of the apple Cider vinegar can seriously damage your teeth , particularly your tooth enamel .
Tooth enamel is the outer surface layer of your teeth .
It's supposed to protect your teeth from decaying highly acidic foods , ruin your enamel , making it easier for those curly whites to rot .
In one study from 2014 scientists exposed wisdom teeth to vinegar in just four hours .
The teeth lose up to 20% of their minerals to prevent apple cider vinegar from doing this .
Drink it with a straw .
This way , the drink has minimal contact with your teeth .
Also , if you feel the need to brush , avoid doing it for about half an hour after drinking .
Number eight , keep away from your Children much like corrosive or poisonous chemicals .
You need to keep apple cider vinegar away from kids due to all the negative effects it has on people's skin , throat and lungs .
Children are particularly vulnerable to it .
In fact , researchers have recommended vinegar itself to be labeled as a potent and caustic substance and be placed in childproof containers .
If you have apple cider vinegar out , make sure it's out of reach of your kids .
Do you use apple cider vinegar on the regular ?
