The REAL Reason Apple Cider Vinegar Works for Losing Weight – MUST WATCH!

– Hey, Dr. Berg here. In this video, we’re gonna
talk about apple cider vinegar. What are the benefits, what are the myths? First of all, here’s a myth, that apple cider vinegar
contains a lot of nutrients. It really does not. It doesn’t have a lot of vitamin A, it doesn’t have a lot of vitamin C, it doesn’t have a lot of minerals. What it does have is
something even more important; in fact, the real reason
why apple cider vinegar works for so many conditions has to do with this one thing it
has called acetic acid. That’s an acid, and then the reason why it works is, and this might go against a
lot of philosophies out there, is that the body, most bodies that I check in my office over many, many years
are way too alkaline. Now I know that goes against
maybe what you have heard, that everyone’s too acid, but that’s not true. You really have to, when you talk about pH, you really have to understand
that every part of your body has a different pH. So if someone says, oh,
yeah, you’re too acid, well, what pH are you talking about? The urine? Are you talking about the saliva? The real, true indicator of pH for a body should be in the blood, but it’s very difficult to test that because soon as you take
the blood out of the body, it oxidizes and it can
change the pH right away. So you have to, it’s very
expensive to determine that. So you have to go by symptoms. And so if you ever wanted to really know, just look up in, I don’t know, Google it, all the conditions
for too acid called acidosis, and look up for the
conditions of alkalosis and all those symptoms, and you’ll be able to
see which ones you have, and you can determine
based on those two factors. So what we’re talking
about is the blood pH here. Most people have a blood pH, which is excessively alkaline. And yes, it’s true that your blood should be slightly alkaline, but in this situation, it becomes even too alkaline, okay? And that’s why apple cider
vinegar works so well, because it changes, if you change the pH of your body just a slight bit, you can create huge effects because the pH is so important in transporting minerals and
allowing enzymes to work, to stimulating the thyroid, to increasing metabolism,
all these things. So let’s just take a deeper look at this one acid, acetic acid. The pH of acetic acid is very acidic. It’s 2.5. That’s almost like stomach acid pH. It’s way down there. So it’s really good for the stomach. People take it for heartburn. And by the way, heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, that is a condition where
your stomach is too alkaline and the valve on top does not close, and I know people say it’s too much acid, no, it’s not. In fact, if you have
acid reflux or heartburn, just take some apple cider vinegar and see how much better you feel. I mean, you’ll feel wonderful, because the valve will
start closing on the top and the stomach, the acid won’t start regurgitating up through that valve. So it’s good for GERD, acid
reflux, indigestion, okay? And as you age, especially over the age of 50, 60, 70, your pH in your stomach
starts going lower, I’m sorry, it goes higher
and higher and higher, so it becomes more and more alkaline. So you need more acid as you age to be able to digest
protein and absorb minerals, because if your pH is too alkaline, which most people have a
problem with too much alkaline, they can’t absorb calcium. They can’t absorb minerals
like they used to. So what happens, especially with calcium, is calcium starts building
up in the soft tissues throughout the body, so you have the soft tissue calcification. I mean, you see it in people
that are getting older. They’re getting stiff, they have arthritis, bursitis. They get calcium developing
on the eyes as cataracts, on the joints as arthritis, on the nerves as neuritis, on the kidney as kidney stones, on the gallbladder as gallstones, on the teeth as tartar. That could come from a pH problem. It’s an alkalosis, a systemic alkalosis, which is your whole body is too alkaline. One of the things that
I like to do as well is make sure they’re taking
the fat-soluble vitamins to transport that calcium out, like vitamin D and K2, but in this video, we’re gonna talk about the
pH piece of this thing. Now what causes this alkaline state? It has to do with this, in this book, it’s called Ciba Encyclopedia
of Endocrinology Volume 4, Frank Netter, MD. This is one of the main books that is used in medical schools, and it’s a great physiology book to help you get some of the
facts on how the body works. So right here, if you look on the page that talks about high cortisol, that’s a stress hormone, high stress, high
cortisol, causes alkalosis. It makes your body too alkaline. So unless you don’t live on planet Earth, you might not have this problem, but most people I know
live on planet Earth, they have a lot of stress, their bodies become
too alkaline over time. The worst thing you can do is start drinking alkaline waters. Now, it’s okay to drink water
that’s already alkaline, but don’t try to alkalize
it to an eight or a nine, because you’re gonna make your body worse, and then you won’t be
able to absorb calcium and things like that. So with adrenal, over, like, stress and high cortisol, you become too alkaline, and you lose this little thing called H+. So if you’ve ever taken chemistry, you’ll notice that H+ is an acid. So in other words, the adrenal causes you to
lose acid through the urine and become too alkaline. So here’s how all the effects
that stress can create. An alkaline body, which then blocks calcium. So you have all this calcium
that plugs up everything, but it’s unavailable to you, so you start getting the
twitch in the left eye. You ever notice when people get stressed, they have, start twitching? You know why that is? Because it changes the pH and the person can’t absorb calcium. So then this is a calcium deficiency. So you could take calcium, but if the pH isn’t right, it won’t work. The best thing to do
if you have that twitch is to drink apple cider vinegar. Boom, drop the pH to make more acidic, the calcium gets mobilized, and the twitch goes away. Cramping in the calf. Apple cider vinegar is the best thing to mobilize the calcium and get rid of cramping in the calves. Nerve pain, neuritis, especially, like, migraine
pain with arthritis that, maybe it’ll move from this joint to this joint to this joint. Oh my gosh, give ’em a
little apple cider vinegar, they are happy. So with stress, you become too alkaline, you lose acid, and you lose potassium, and the only reason I’m
bringing up this potassium, which is a little extra thing, is that alkaline bodies tend
to have a potassium loss, and then when you lose potassium, you actually make the
person more alkaline. So they kind of work together. You know, people say, well, drink apple cider vinegar
to increase your potassium. That’s not what’s gonna do it. Apple cider vinegar will
help increase your potassium because you’ll stop losing the potassium and you’ll make the body more
acidic and like it should be, and so that’ll help the potassium. And just think about, look at this, potassium deficiency, high blood pressure, constipation, feeling of weakness, fatigue, irregular heartbeats. You know, when you hear these claims about apple cider vinegar curing
all these different things, high blood pressure, constipation, weakness, irregular heartbeats, it’s because of the
retention of the potassium, because the chain reaction that occurs after getting the pH in a correct level. People that drink a lot of protein drinks, or they eat too much protein, let’s say they do the Atkins diet or they’re doing this high-protein diet, what happens, there’s the waste from that protein, it’s called guanidine, it’s a chemical, very, very, very, very,
very alkaline, okay? And so that can cause twitching, nerve pain, and a lot of arthritis, okay? Even when you do, like, the ketosis diet, and you’re doing more protein, you may feel stiff, you might feel more arthritic. Drink some apple cider vinegar. It flushes this thing out so nicely. So apple cider vinegar is the antidote to the residue of high protein, for too much protein for
your liver and your body. So it’s a really good cleanser. So this acid, apple cider vinegar, helps absorb minerals,
helps mobilize calcium, helps you digest protein
better without the waste. It helps the immune system, and that’s the last thing
I want to talk about. You’ve heard that people will take apple like vitamin C for a cold, right, or for a virus infection. It’s not the vitamin C necessarily that’s creating the big effect, because most people aren’t
even taking vitamin C. They’re taking a vitamin C lookalike or a fake vitamin C called ascorbic acid, which is not really the
true vitamin C complex, which, again, I’ll have
people disagree on this video. ‘Cause they make, you can
make synthetic vitamin C from ascorbic acid and cornstarch. Well, first of all, corn has no vitamin C. Cornstarch has no vitamin C. Ascorbic acid has no vitamin C. How can you take two things
that don’t have vitamin C, mix them together, and make ascorbic acid and think that’s vitamin C? It’s just, it’s fake. The real benefit of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is the acid. You’d be much better
taking the acetic acid to help your immune system. If you get a cold, if you have a fever, a viral infection, start taking the apple cider vinegar. It’s really, really important. So these are the true benefits
of apple cider vinegar because it acidifies an alkaline body. So in the next section, I’m just gonna show you a
little concoction that I make and I drink on a regular basis. Okay, so let me show you how to make this. This is in my book, chapter ten. It’s called the cranberry drink. It should be called the
apple cider vinegar drink. Very simple, and you
really should try this because it will help you lose weight. If you drink one of these before
you ate three times a day, you would lose a lot more weight, because it stimulates the thyroid and it acidifies the stomach. The only thing that I would recommend if you have a very slow metabolism is you might want to
omit the cranberry juice. So you get the Bragg’s
apple cider vinegar, I like this the best, and simply teaspoon and some water. Actually, do two. Two teaspoons in the
water before each meal, and some people say don’t
consume water before a meal, but this is an acid drink, so it’s gonna help stomach acids. But check this out. This is my favorite lemon juice. Italian Volcano lemon juice. So organic lemon juice, and this stuff is magical, it’s wonderful, and you get it from the healthy store. It’s grown on these soils where the volcanic ash fertilize the soil. So you just do a teaspoon
of this lemon right here. You don’t have to use this lemon juice. You can use other lemon juice. You could use lemons. I like that lemon juice, ’cause I’m spoiled. Cranberry juice. Make sure you read the back label and it just comes from whole cranberries, ’cause some people get the one that has extra grape juice or apple juice. You don’t want that. Just do a teaspoon of this, and basically, this is your drink. Now I like to, and this is just me, you don’t have to do this, you can add some ginger, and there’s some ginger root
that you can shred in there, and it makes it a little spicy. I basically have this ginger
extract that you can get. It’s a liquid form. It’s like ginger juice, and you put a little ginger, it’s real spicy. There’s a lot of great properties. It’s a very good tonic. Again, if you can’t stand the taste, chances are you probably
don’t need it, okay? If you really need it, you will crave it, and it makes you feel better. But I really want you to try this, real simple, drink this before you eat, and watch how much better you feel, okay? So go ahead and do this, and give me some comments below. I’ll see you in the next video.

  1. What about the side effects. I think people having ulcers ,IBS and other problems of gut cannot have ACV . Sometimes people donโ€™t even know they have issues โ€” โ€”is it safe to be taken by everyone?

  2. Dr. Berg, first of all, you are the best. Second of all, your explanation of alkaline vs acid makes SO much sense.

  3. Acv was my life miracle ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒท thank u dr berg it is working very nice my body my heart and my hear ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Dr. Eric Berg DC, This has to be your Best video Ever! Thanks for making them short and right to the point! You always have the goods to back what your saying. I try to get my older sister to watch these videos, but I know she would rather watch "The Bachelor". I've been interested in health at an early age with losing both parents by the time I was 25 years old. With being 64 years old, I don't want to be busted up! I'm not going to let myself go until I'm 99 years old!

  5. I have to try this. I have the eye twitch and cramps in calves tot the point I can't run anymore. Stay tuned.

  6. I disagree with the comment "if you can't stand the taste you don't need it" acv has a very pungent taste along with having a strong sting to it. But I will say I've gotten used to it now so it's easier for me to drink but if anyone asks me I'll say up front "it tastes nasty and it burns but it's good for you"

  7. You forgot to mention shaking for the mother 10:52. Realize the symbiotic relationships our fractile nature of being awaken..

  8. Is it bad or harmful to drink about 6 glasses of apple cider vinegar in a day? I really love the taste and Iโ€™m kind of addicted to it.

  9. One question Dr Berg. I've been diagnosed with Barret's oesophagus. Is it still a good thing to take Apple cider vinegar?

  10. I don't see how adding acetic acid to a stomach with HCl would make it more acidic. I'm not sure you really understand pH or if you can even define it.

    Also, many of us do not take ascorbic acid, but buffered forms like sodium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate, or my personal favorite, magnesium ascorbate. Missing cofactors are provided by taking the mineral ascorbate with lemon juice or other citrus. The mineral ascorbates provide the same benefits as ascorbic acid without the side effects, so it's unlikely the acidity of vitamin C is relevant as again it is a much weaker acid than the HCl in your stomach..

  11. Can I take apple cider vinegar as a vitamin? 480mg I have heard, hair loss, loss of elasticity, gained weight, constipation etc

  12. What kind of acv and lemon juice ? And how much water ? And do I mix it all and how many times a day some one please inform me thanks

  13. Dr. Berg what's your opinion on alkaline water? It's a popular trend these days especially spiritual people promote it a lot.

  14. Dr berg can one have the capsules instead of the drink I had my gallbladder removed 3 years ago but I have very acute reflux please advice. Thanks for the brilliant information u share.

  15. I give it to my fur babies too. My oldest pup is 4 and was on reflux medication (same one my husband was taking). Off of meds and doing great?

  16. I am overweight, and just found out my ferritin level is in the 900's. Is apple cider vinegar ok to take? Please help.

  17. i am confused… so do you want a more acidic ph or alkaline ph body? cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment, so why would you want that?

  18. I add 1 Tablespoon with a 1-1/2 cups of crystal lite lemon-aid twice a day. I'm on the Keto diet and it's help a lot. I would recommend vinegar to every diet.

  19. Really amazing video. I love the flavor of ACV mixed with lime juice and ginger. Thanks Dr Berg for such an important information

  20. I'm into fitness and muscle workout, and eat a lot of proteins.
    I'm so glad (wasn't even expecting it) that Dr. Eric Berg mentionned Guanidine and protein consumption !
    I had no idea I was subjecting my body to excess bad chemicals. I'll be heading to my local organic farmer and buy him a bottle of raw apple cider vinegar ๐Ÿ™‚

But I was taking lemon juice and 1 tsp honey in warm water .. every am ( healthy fat melted off!) Dr. said that did it? So do I start your drink slowly ween off dexilant? My Dr. said don't ask me I'm not a nutritionist ugh would love your opinion thx!!

  23. I was diagnosed with fibro several years ago, and was put on so many different medications, the gabba I had a huge reaction to, yuk. finally just got off all of those and doing things naturally. now I have started the keto diet just last week, and a few days afterwards was told I have type 2 diabetes. is there anything you recommend for fibro? been eating organic whole foods fruits veggies NOW mostly just veggies. plus taking supplements as well

  25. Dr.i weigh my selfbefore ileft homei weighted my self AGAIN when i came back home i o ly dri k waterall day howcome i gain 3lbs!?๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  26. I enjoy your videos. They are very informative and easy to follow. I alternate every morning between ACV an Lemmon juice and a greens detox drink.

  27. Question I can not stomach the taste/smell of ACV so I do consume two 450mg ACV capsules daily.ย  Am I benefiting from the capsules or am I just wasting time and money?ย  Do you have to consume ACV in a liquid form? I can say I believe taking the capsules have all but eliminated my heartburn though.

  28. Was anyone else waiting at the end like is he gonna take a drink of it or no???? Hmmmm how bad could it taste if he's not taking a drink of it….???? Nope, ok he's not going to take a drink of it. I'll make it but I'll take precautionary measurements when I go to drink it ๐Ÿ˜‚

  29. I drink 2 tbs of acv with fresh lemon juice in a glass of water first thing every morning, but why do I feel nauseous and a bit sickly after taking it? Other than that I don't see any weight changes or feel different. I only drink it once a day but I might up it to twice, morning and night and then see. My energy is pretty bad also

  30. Plz plz tell me alternative to wheat to use as bread instead of wheat bread..that is the only problem and hinderance in my weight loss..
    And also how to avoid too much bowel movements i have to take immodium everyday..that i didnt used to have 4 years back but afterwards it is.

  31. I always heard that when you have a twitch under your eye it's a lack of potassium and if you eat a banana it will go away. So I do that and it does

  32. Okay so Ive always read and heard acid makes the body alkaline rich and to much alkaline makes the body acidic. This video suggests that many are too alkaline however, research suggests that cancer cannot grow in alkaline rich environments which is why many are drinking ACV and baking soda or other ACD mixes and alkaline and acid rich diets. Could anyone touch on this because I'm confused now what to believe?

  33. I've been trying this, but it's very abrasive on my throat. I already have damage from years of acid reflux. I'll try the pills instead.

  34. Now this is a REAL doctor. A doctor who is genuinely passionate and dedicated to his profession. With genuine interest to help and heal people, not just in it for the money or for marketing but because he genuinely cares. We need more doctors like you Dr. Berg, thank you for what you do ๐Ÿ™

  35. Been taking Organic ACV plus half lemon juice for about 9 months! Been to dentist and last time gum inflammation now she can't believe it as no and I mean no inflammation, this we put down to ACV unreal.
