Anyone considering using apple cider vinegar for anything other than a salad dressing needs to know the possible side effects of ingesting too much acidic flavoring. Over the past few years, several studies have suggested that this common dressing ingredient might offer health benefits, such as the potential to reduce body mass, improve cardiovascular health and regulate blood sugar.

Before using apple cider vinegar, it's essential to learn about its side effects. It is always better to seek advice from a healthcare professional rather than following fad diets boasted by celebrities, which may or may not offer health benefits.1‘Side Effects of Apple Cider Vinegar and How to Use It Safely.’ Medical News Today, www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324184

Unpleasant Digestive Symptoms

Apple cider vinegar is an acid that may upset a sensitive stomach and when used undiluted on an empty stomach, even in small amounts. Common gastrointestinal side effects can include nausea, vomiting and bloating.

People with specific digestive conditions, such as ulcerative colitis or GERD, should seek medical advice before supplementing their diet with apple cider vinegar. People who regularly experience stomach aches or other digestive issues should speak with their physician, to get the right diagnosis before taking apple cider vinegar or other over-the-counter products on their own.2Lampen, Claire. ‘Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar For Weight Loss Can Have Some Unpleasant Side Effects.’ Women’s Health, www.womenshealthmag.com/weight-loss/g19732667/apple-cider-vinegar-diet-side-effects
