Apple cider vinegar



Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm 9 weeks out of WLS now.

Lost 15 kg since my highest weight.

I have a question about apple cider vinegar post surgery.. was reading about all the benefits it has.

Is it safe to take apple cider vinegar at this stage?

What about the apple cider vinegar gunmies "Goli".

Really hyping everywhere nowadays.

Any experiences?

Thanks in advance

Ask your medical team as the acid my cause some issues. I love pickled onions but I didn’t start eating them again until after 12 months (I chop them in my salads).

Congrats on your surgery.

I couldn't do it - the acid would really bother my stomach

you might be able to at some point, but I would think it might be too early yet - but ask your surgeon.

So this is quite anecdotal with a sample size of just me. I had heard that ACV could help with GERD. My surgeon had me on Prilosec for the first 3 months after my sleeve and then tapered me off of it. I started having occasional GERD. I didn’t want to go back on Prilosec. I read about ACV and gave it a try. I now take one Gummy in the morning and one at night. Zero GERD for the last year since I have been taking it. It could totally be a coincidence, but to me it’s worth it to keep taking it.

Like @kristieshannon above, I started taking ACV to help with GERD, among its other benefits.

I absolutely could not stand drinking it, no matter how much I diluted it. So, I did a little research and discovered these capsules. They also have cayenne pepper in them for some of those anti-inflammatory properties. I can't say as they're a miracle or anything, but I do feel better when I take them.

9 weeks out might be a little soon to introduce ACV. When in doubt, ask your doctor and/or nutritionist.

Thank you all for your comments.
I have read more negative reviews than positive about ACV so changed my mind.
Also I think too its too early to start on that.
I will definitely speak to my team before starting it in future.

I’m taking the Pure brand, bought off Amazon. One Gummy in the morning and one before bed.

@ms.sss, I take Havasu ACV See link here

The bottle shows 500mg of ACV and 20mg of cayenne pepper.

*Word to the wise: If you choose this one, do NOT hold it in your mouth for more than a few seconds before drinking it down. One time, I put it in my mouth before I had a drink ready and the capsule dissolved before I had the chance to drink it down. Remember: it has cayenne pepper in it! I had a mouthful of acid and HOT HOT HOT! Not a pleasant experience. :337_fire::277_dragon_face::484_fire_engine:
