Here's a link to Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, that has the value for potassium:

The relevant part is here:
Potassium = 11mg/Tbsp. less than 2% DRV / RD

The RDA for potassium is 4700 mgs.

Here's a link that shows the DRV for 10 foods high in potassium... not included on this list but also quite high are tomatoes, prunes, cantaloupe and avocados.

I would be more concerned about how ACV reacts with any other medication you may be taking for your kidneys or otherwise.

WebMD states that chronic use of ACV can decrease potassium. They did not state why that happens. Here's a link to the complete article:

You and your doctor will have to be the one that makes the call on whether or not to take it.

So, for a person with kidney issues and serum potassium on the high end, apple cider vinegar would not be a good thing.

Apple cider vinegar is also supposed to be good for leg cramps if the reason for them is low potassium. That's what I use it for.

And yes, I also follow it up with a mouth rinse...a pinch of baking soda in water.

Yep! Use it daily - just a quick swig will help so much. Like the idea of the baking soda though.....hadnt thought of that.
No real enamel issues yet but only doing this for 2 months....
hope that helps!

ACV is so good for so many things that I just wanted to incorporate it into my health routine. But I didn't want to sacrifice something like teeth enamel to do it. Just trying to get a handle on the pros and cons.

Good idea, Live, using the straw.
That's just terrible about the enamel on your teeth!

Another idea is to give your mouth a baking soda rinse... baking soda is alkaline and will counter the acidity of the vinegar.. don't need much just put a pinch in a glass of warm water, swish, spit out, then follow with plain water and you're good.

Yes there are risks.

* To your teeth. Even when diluted it will graduall - or not so gradually - strip the enamel off your teeth. I used it (very diluted) for only 2 or 3 months, and it really stripped the enamel off my teeth, and now they are yellow due to exposing the underlayer. I did already have poor enamel, but this finished off my enamel and gave me yellow teeth that will never ever go away.

* For persons who are allergic to molds this can be a mild to serious risk (used either internally or externally).
* Some people get a burning stomach from it. Don't use it if you've had ulcers.

If you do use it dilute it well, and drink it through a straw to lessen the damage (though it still gets around in your mouth, and even rinsing your mouth still leaves some vinegar on your teeth.

Live amazingly every day of your life, for you never know which one will be your last.

So is it good for you or are there risks that should be considered more seriously? Is it best to always dilute it?
