Apple Cider Vinegar, Can It Harm You?

bob and brad the two most famous physical therapists on the internet [Music] hi there brad heineck physical therapist and bob is not here today uh he's on vacation a little r r yes we need that as well uh but chris the pharmacist is here to join us we're very happy and honored to have him with us today he's here to help us become healthy fit and pain-free as well uh chris is a very big advocate of exercise and yes even home remedies as uh he and i talk about these all the time we work out together weekly uh as uh health and fitness together so oh before we go on any farther chris this is new to you as far as this but we do need to all right bring to attention uh join us on bobonbrat.com we do have a giveaway this week and here it is it's our knee glide which is an excellent tool uh for knee exercise particularly after surgery or before surgery or if you have a painful and arthritic knee uh again that's at bobinbra.com if you go to facebook go at the top of the page it's pen to the top that'll get you there as well other web other media we are on uh twitter uh instagram and that tick tock thing going on out there so uh boy i've never gone through that before bob always does that so i feel pretty good about that we're i'm pretty much done it's your turn to talk chris all right i think you did great brett i think you did great okay the big question is that did i give the title yet tanner no apple cider vinegar can it harm you does it help weight loss and or diabetes this is science-based now chris being a pharmacist and his iq is way above mind he's done extensive study on the recent literature uh to answer this question but before we get any further can apple cider vinegar harm you chris yes or no well we have to be careful we always have to use a little bit of restraint but like a politician it can't give me a yes or no [Music] well it's not it's not that simple but i mean for many many many of us going to be just fine but if we're a diabetic we have some tough problems with our kidneys if we're on certain medications we have to be careful so it's possible that apple cider vinegar could harm you but for most of us not so we're going to actually continue for the next five minutes or so and chris is going to explain the details so you'll be fully informed on the the benefits and possible uh problems that you may have with apple cider vinegar uh so chris you did extensive study i think we mentioned you studied at least 15 articles and research articles uh we've got a couple that you're gonna uh talk about so let's again what you want to talk about apple cider vinegar what is it and and the claims yeah basically apple cider vinegar they uh basically fermented it and so it's the process of the alcohol actually take apples yep and they just ferment it and they just let you know they add what they need to to get the whole process going uh ultimately they put in a special bacteria and ultimately it becomes acetic acid the vinegar portion of it and then what's left over is this little white streaky stuff if you ever look in a bottle and that's the mother right so and that's where a lot of people feel that all the health cases they even benefits as a type of probiotic okay so if we're looking at this at weight loss first we're going to cover diabetes in just a little bit but weight loss is there evidence that if you use apple cider vinegar it's going to help you lose weight yes there actually is brad there's quite a bit of it uh as far as how it's used itself just about every article that i searched actually used almost the same formula and it was always between 15 and 30 milliliters which will bring this handy dandy which is 15 milliliters is just a tablespoon so very small amount mixed in about four or eight ounces of water drink it up and then basically you will consume that and most of the studies they try to actually make pretty scientific so they kind of all had kind of a different pattern one of the more interesting ones that i saw actually was done in 2004 by the journal association of american diabetes and what they did is they had all these patients and actually but this was actually for weight loss but it was also for diabetes they studied both endpoints i understand um with that they did a bagel they did orange juice and they did butter and then they mixed in their apple cider vinegar and water okay and then they had a placebo group that just simply didn't have the apple cider and vinegar and the end points of it were that they ended up losing weight which was kind of significant and ultimately over 12 weeks they lost between 8 and twelve pounds okay and they all had to exercise and then the group that did not use the apple cider vinegar actually only lost about five pounds so modest difference between 32 40 more exactly over 12 weeks and i also have read that they talk about visceral fat or the fat and the gut is what actually is targeted or actually lose it you lose more than that it does seem and usually we've always thought that you couldn't target reduce but all of the studies that i read did seem to say that it seemed to lose the visceral fat so that's something that's pretty attractive option for a lot of people that are struggling with weight loss and i know bob actually uh we did a video on the there was a study done in japan on weight loss and it had similar results yep uh very positive and so we did that video but we said there is possible negative effects of apple cider vinegar is it how much you take or is it your health condition what are what are the potential problems yep a couple of different things um for a lot of diet you know if you're a diabetic a lot of times there's going to be very several things that will create problems for you so it can be the medications that you're on but it could be your own kidneys and one of the things is you know basically apple cider vinegar is weakly acidic so it's tough on the kidneys so we want to make sure that we're careful with it so if your doctor tells you that you have reduced kidney function check with your doctor before you consider this all right so yeah so basically the things that we have to be careful with is we have like i said the kidney problems or if we're on certain medications that work with blood pressure or fluid retention um specifically the diuretics and so the people that take those would be things like furosemide chlorthalidone hydrochlorothiazide okay so now you're you're talking over my head with these big words so you're talking about prescription medical prescription medications that are considered water pills so those drugs make your body naturally lose potassium and that has to do with hypertension too hard correct yep so if you're also so actually you need to go to your doctor and make sure that you're okay taking this particularly if you're on other medications yeah particularly especially the diuretics the water pills and if you have reduced kidney functioning so those are the big things with apple cider vinegar you have to be super careful with the check with your doctor by and large they can be construed as a pro a safe thing to use for weight loss management if you don't have any things that are going to preclude you from having something unsafe happen sure sure all right uh so any other things that we need to be careful of with like can you just take a i mean i was watching other videos on youtube and you're just drinking it like a shot of booze you know it's like yeah can you take it straight is it safe i would not recommend straight shooters of apple cider vinegar i think when we're pulling that right off the old bar old school and a shot glass is probably not the way to go um we have enamel on our teeth and that's what keeps them hard and looking white and pretty and what happens is because acetic acid one of the that's what vinegar is is weakly acidic and it damages the enamel of the tooth and so that could increase your risk for cavities and other sorts of tooth decay so we do want to be real careful with that what about acid reflux or heartburn yep and that's the other one that's uh pretty prominent because again it's acidic it can increase your risk for reflux or heartburn so it's something that again if you're a patient that takes certain medications to prevent that probably check with your doctor to make sure it's something that you could safely take uh but for the vast majority of it i think it's gonna be a pretty reasonable thing to consider sure okay uh there was one more thing on my mind with this before we get on to the diabetic heartburn uh so you're not gonna take it straight you're gonna mix it with water check with your doctor and uh hope for the best well i think that's the big but i mean i realistically at the endpoints of all the studies that i saw i mean it really shows that you're gonna lose five to eight pounds of weight i mean pretty much across the board um you know don't cash in on the gym membership we still want you exercising and staying busy that's probably the most critical component of that but the other thing to note is in all these studies the ones that had the most effective weight loss there was always about a 250 calorie a day reduction in intake of food so it's it's replacing something or taking a little bit less so which when you compare it with placebo the apple cider vinegar definitely enhanced the weight loss you know by about three or four pounds on average versus somebody that just didn't take the apple cider vinegar but you still have to keep exercising got to keep that body moving right so i know this relates to diabetes which you can maybe segue into here yep uh they'll talk about um can you understand this you can explain it much better than i the absorption of uh is it sugar through carbohydrates as it yeah closer your your gut and your stomach and etc can you talk about that yeah exactly when we eat food basically our body starts to digest it as soon as it hits the tongue and it breaks it all the way down into the gut and then basically that's how it gets absorbed and that's how our nutrients are taken care of we're a diabetic patient we struggle a little bit with how our bodies process the sugars that we eat in our daily diets so your starches and carbohydrates so what happens is with apple cider vinegar is it actually slows down the absorption of the food that you've just eaten and so at the stomach level or in the intestine yeah it's stomach a gut it's all kind of say it starts with the stomach goes to the gut but it's more or less in the intestines because that's where most of the nutrient absorption occurs but what it does is it slows down the absorption pattern so basically if i just had white bread and i was diabetic there would be a quick sugar rush in my body just from bread just from white bread or you can take rice or just pick any carbohydrates you want so let's say i had you know 15 milliliters of apple cider vinegar throw it in four ounces of water mix up drank it down and then two minutes later ate something it's going to slow down that absorption of the sugar from the white bread so that it kind of is a more even level and so what that happens with the particularly in a diabetic patient is it gives a more consistent sugar level so it doesn't spike way up and down it's just a more pleasant level and so it allows so if you're a diabetic patient that's on medications it allows those medicines to make your body do what it needs to to process those sugars better thereby lowering your blood sugar which is safer for you big picture so in many of the studies that we looked at uh you know in particular there was but dr edwin mcdonald he noted that the journal of american associated diabetes again the one i kind of cited earlier it showed that it was safe to use with diabetic medications again without you know as long as you don't have the kidney limitations and if we're not on the diuretics they could raise the you know lower the potassium those are the bigs so i can see you definitely need to consult with your doctor to make sure these whatever there could be other meds or there's lots make sure that you're safe yeah the diabetic umbrella is all-encompassing i mean it's you know when you look at they have a lot of different medications that most patients take so we do want to be extra cautious with that check with your doctor to make sure it's appropriate for you and your regimen that you're doing to treat those sugars effectively but in many cases it's probably safe but but again gotta check with the doc right right and again you know we talked about this before we'll we'll talk to people it's safe to think if one tablespoon's good maybe three or four is going to help me lose more weight faster i'm healthy i don't have any diabetes i don't take any medications i can probably take three or four and it's going to make me lose weight faster because you know we're a quick quick fix society yeah now we're going to go a hard pass on that we want we want to avoid that mentality i mean we want to keep it at the regimented doses so 15 milliliters and in four ounces of water is generally what we see across the board um harvard health uh publishing from may of 2018 kind of showed similar results with the exact same things um so again you know diabetes that's going to bring that sugar down gradually and gently so we just have to be careful with it though all right and again we talked about the mother that is that protein substance in there it's they think that's the big thing and but scientifically that's not proven either nope there's a lot more research that has to be done i think that's the biggest takeaway from this entire conversation is all the studies that i looked at were anywhere from 30 to 100 people so it's not large scale and and not a lot of them were peer reviewed so it's kind of that's kind of a buzzword in today's society so we want to make sure it's good solid science making sure that we keep people safe healthy and healthy and keeping the weight loss keeping the sugars down all right so the only thing i wanted to conclude with is i personally have used this because i had joint stiffness uh i was successful and i i think it was the only thing i know it was the only thing i changed in my regimen for about three or four weeks and my hands became less stiff less painful i couldn't even shake hands with even an older person i'd be doing a muscle strength test with so painful so i don't want to do another video on joint stiffness in regards to apple cider vinegar and hopefully we can schedule that in the future sometime so any questions uh we'd like to hear comments from you and i would like to thank chris for his time being here his expertise uh very good and once again chris now this is new to you but you know we can fix just about anything except for a broken heart yeah he knows what we're talking about and i don't think this apple cider thing is gonna well it does heartburn so it might make the heart worse yeah we gotta be a little careful with that a little careful there okay very good enjoy the day and uh what what am i gonna say be careful that's what i meant to say there you go shut it off shut it off i'm off my off [Music] key you
