Apple cider vinegar has been proven to hold a host of health benefits alongside weight loss, and while it is best consumed mixed with water as a drink, too much can be harmful and even dangerous.
This is according to Health Line, which lists the side effects for over consuming the health drink.
Just a few include the erosion of tooth enamel and throat burns.
Erosion of tooth enamel
Acidic foods and beverages have been shown to damage tooth enamel.
One study the website sites involved enamel from wisdom teeth being immersed in different vinegars with pH levels ranging form 2.7 to 3.95.
The vinegars led to a 1 to 20 per cent loss of minerals from the teeth after four hours.
According to the site, a review of harmful liquids accidentally swallowed by children found acetic acid – which is found in apple cider vinegar – was the most common acid that caused throat burns.
Franziska Spritzler for the site wrote: “Human and animal studies have found that apple cider vinegar and acetic acid may decrease appetite and promote feelings of fullness, leading to a natural reduction in calorie intake.
“However, one controlled study suggests that in some cases, appetite and food intake may decrease due to indigestion.
“The people who consumed a drink containing 25 grams (0.88 oz) of apple cider vinegar reported less appetite but also significantly greater feelings of nausea, especially when the vinegar was part of an unpleasant-tasting drink.”
So how much apple cider vinegar should you have in a day in order to shed pounds fast?
It is recommended one to two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day to get the full weight loss benefits.
The weight loss benefits come in the form of improving metabolism, reducing fat storage, burning fat and suppressing appetite.
It is also suggested you should spread it out into two to three doses throughout the day and drink it before meals.
