Does Apple Cider Vinegar Make You Poop?

If You're Wondering Why Apple Cider Vinegar Makes You Poo, You're Not Alone

People take apple cider vinegar for a number of reasons, and if you've incorporated the vinegar into your daily diet, you've likely noticed some results. Aside from curbed appetite, better digestion is a side effect for many — and yes, that means ACV can help you out in the pooping department. One of our own editors experienced less constipation and bloating after drinking apple cider vinegar for one week, and as it turns out, that's a common reaction.

Apple cider vinegar, just like apples, is high in pectin, a soluble fibre. The pectin can help move things along in the digestive system. Before you decide to throw back shots of ACV to alleviate constipation issues, though, know that it's recommended to dilute apple cider vinegar with water before drinking it.

Plus, moderation is key when it comes to this trendy remedy. There is such a thing as too much apple cider vinegar, so be careful not to go overboard. Physician Dr. Frank Lipman previously told POPSUGAR that the recommended daily amount is one to three tablespoons per day.
