Any health issues using apple cider vinegar drink?

I want to start drinking the apple cider drink but I recall reading awhile back that apple cider vinegar might not be good for everyone due to heart health issues. Are there any health concerns relating to this drink?

Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic Concerns
by: Grandma

Hello Eileen,

Thank you for asking this important question concerning the Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic.

Any new home remedy should be started with caution, even though most home remedies are simple ingredients found in the kitchen. The real concern I would have with this popular home remedy is if you are on medication from your physician. Always check with you physician or pharmacist to see what concerns they would have about mixing anything with your medications.

Heart medications usually include a blood thinner and this would be my main concern before taking this tonic. Yet, any medication could have a side effect and even though Apple Cider Vinegar has been around for thousands of years it's hard to say if it would have an effect on chemicals in medications.

Even if your physician feels it would be safe for you to try, I'd still start with a weak dose for the first couple of weeks before starting the full recipe.

Thanks for visiting Grandma's Wisdom
