I have had heartburn all my life - 60 years. Over the years my doctors have increased my ppis and now I am taking 80 mg Protonix. After reading a lot about apple cider vinegar, I decided to try with weaning off Protonix.
It does work really well, but the smell and taste, UGH! So I ordered pills. The pills also contain calcium in addition to the acv. If I need more acid, this seems counterproductive. Would the calcium neutralize the AVC in the pill when it hits my stomach. I haven't tried them yet, but wonder what you all think.

I was talking about apple cider vinegar remedies today with a friend who suggested a tablespoon of it in an eight oz glass of water each day. It's supposed to help with a variety of health problems, such as cholesterol, diabetes, GERDS. I haven't read much online about it, but I am willing to try it out. I think the pill is worth trying though, especially if the apple cider vinegar was helping in the first place.

ACV has conflicting effects on different people. Some claim it helps, some claim it burns. It is likely to help if you just have indigestion or weak stomach. It is unlikely to help if you have esophageal or gastric erosion.

You can try it. But don't keep on trying if it burns.
