Interesting to hear it relieved a gallbladder attack.
I don't drink it but I do use it as a final rinse when I wash my hair. My scalp drove me crazy the way it itched after using normal shampoos so I switched to a bar of medicated soap. That fixed the itchy scalp but my hair felt like straw. Apple cider vinegar rinse (only a couple of teaspoons diluted in water) solved the problem. My hair has never felt better, soft and shiny without tons of chemicals.
I have heard about it but never tried it. My sister swears by it.

I have gallstones and every so often I will have a seriously painful attack. I read one night that taking a few tsp of apple cider vinegar with apple juice will ease the pain. So I tried and sure enough 15-20 minutes later I was feeling practically all better. So now whenever I feel a twinge in my gallbladder I shoot some apple cider vinegar. This has been for maybe the last 6 months (and I use braggs as was posted below) and I haven't noticed a correlation between weight loss and drinking vinegar. Also it's not so bad, I just drink it straight. It almost tastes good to be honest.

No, however, I do know it has many benefits and can be added to a healthy diet.

I drink it every day - 1 -2 tablespoons with stevia mixed in it. You can use honey if you want. Cures anything you've got just about. Love it!
It's both a myth and a little bit of truth. Apple cider vinegar doesn't do anything for weight loss... but liquid does and ritual does. Drinking a glass or cup of anything right before a meal does two things: 1) makes you slow down and think about the fact that you're about to have a meal, so you're forcing yourself into "mindful eating," and 2) fills you up so you eat less
The vinegar thing has the added "benefit" of making you fuss with measuring and mixing, which slows you down even more. But really, if you're going to do the "drink X before a meal to make you eat less" trick, the best thing is supposedly tomato juice. It's very filling and nobody chugs it down, so it really increases both effects. There's actual research on this, and the benefit is small but statistically significant. Tomato soup has an even stronger effect because it's so much slower to eat-- if I remember right, it made people eat something like 100 calories less. Of course, with a tomato product you have to watch out for the sodium.

I don't fancy this but it works for some people and that is a good thing.

Apple cider vinegar is good for you but I wouldn't do a "diet" of it

I swear that "diet" used to be around when i was in my 20's or even earlier...
Vinegar has no mystical properties that will make any measurable impact on one's weight loss efforts (not even the vinegar with The Mother).

I have heard and done this. You have to use the vinegar that has the Mother in it. Bragg from the Health Food Store is a good one.

I take 2 tbsp. daily in water (sometimes with honey). Believe it or not it helps lesson the aches and pains in my joints. I have a friend who takes lemon juice every morning and she swears it helps with weight loss.

Has anyone heard of this before/tried it? I have been told 1-3 tsp of apple cider vinegar before each meal helps you to shed pounds by crazy amounts. Has anyone had any experience with this or proof that it's credible or not? Apple Cider Vinegar is gross to shot, but if it helps with weight loss? I dunno, it just sounds too good to be true.
