Side Effects of Apple Cider Vinegar Pills

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) pills may have similar side effects to liquid ACV, including:

  • Throat irritation and damage to the esophagus, especially if taken undiluted or in high doses
  • Digestive issues like nausea, vomiting, and indigestion
  • Erosion of tooth enamel due to the acidity
  • Low potassium levels (hypokalemia), especially in those with kidney disease or who take certain medications like diuretics

Other potential side effects include interactions with medications like insulin, laxatives, and diuretics. The ideal dosage for ACV pills is unclear, as most research has focused on the liquid form.

It's important to start with a low dose, dilute ACV with water, and avoid prolonged contact with teeth. Those with chronic health conditions should consult a doctor before using ACV supplements. While generally safe for healthy people, ACV pills are not a replacement for medications to treat conditions like high blood pressure or cholesterol.
