I'm someone who more often than not needs to pee at least two, but often up to five times a night. What a nightmare! I recently had a cold and started taking 1 tablespoon of ACV in a glass of water (with a teaspoon of xylitol for taste) to see if it would alleviate my symptoms. I was 100% shocked when it 1) helped me feel better faster, and 2) almost eliminated my nighttime peeing. N
ow I take the same dose in the evening. Now it's a 50/50 split between nights when I don't have to go at all, and nights when I only go one time. It's a game changer.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I decided to try ACV for my frequent urination. Just a tsp in water and sipping on it. the very first dose, within hours I experienced great relief, better urine flow and less often. I've been doing this for two days now and am very happy with it. I was sort of desperate because I ran out of the other supplements I'd been using, pygeum and beta sitosterol. which were also effective but this is cheaper and may also work better. A gallon of ACV is $2.49 and has 768 tspns in it. That is half the prices of the pygeum and 5 times the doses. It's even a greater savings over the beta sitosterol. I'll see as I continue with ACV and what longer term use does for me. Just last night I slept with fewer interruptions. I'm very optimistic. I do not like the taste but will try other things to mix with to cover that.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Recently I started taking 2 x 300mg Apple cider vinegar tablets three times a day. The reason was that I had seen the results of some medical research that said it helped to lower blood sugar and cholesterol (I am borderline type 2 diabetic). Now it just so happens that I have an overactive bladder as well and take daily meds for that. I have suffered from it for about 9 years and sometimes it can be really bad. If I am out and something triggers it I can be running to the loo every 10 mins which is embarrassing, and sometimes I don't get there in time which can be even more embarrassing even if wearing pads. Then after starting the cider vinegar I gradually became aware that for the first time in years my bladder was behaving normally. At first I didn't make the connection, and then, as I had never heard of it as a remedy for urinary problems I started to wonder if it was a placebo effect - that is, I started to believe it had an effect and so it did, regardless. Anyway, the change has been so remarkable I started looking things up on line and sure enough some people were recommending ACV for urine problems. To me, that's even more powerful because I had no expectation at all of any effect on my bladder when taking ACV, so it took me unawares. It may not work for everyone, but I reckon it's worth a try. Incidentally at first I started drinking 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted with warm water and sweetened with honey but found it too unpalatable, so switched to the tablets, which have the same effect but are easier to take.
