Today we’re going to talk about why you might want to use lemon juice and apple cider vinegar for your liver. 

The key element in apple cider vinegar is acetic acid, which helps suppress fat storage. Be sure to get organic apple cider vinegar. 

Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar:
• Acetic Acid (suppresses fat storage)
• Improves insulin sensitivity
• Stabilizes the blood sugar 
• Reduces fat in the liver 
• Speeds up digestion 
• Increase bile release from the liver 
• Helps the pancreas release enzymes

Using raw lemons may be the best choice. If you use lemon juice from a bottle, be sure it’s organic. 

Health Benefits of Lemon:
• Vitamin C 
• Increases glutathione 
• Protects against liver damage 
• Citric acid decreases oxalates which can form kidney stones  
• Anti-inflammatory 

Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon Juice Water:

Mix together:
1-2 oz. Lemon juice 
2 TBS Apple cider vinegar 
16 oz. Water 

Optional: Add wheatgrass juice powder for extra nutrients 

Drink up!

    Vinegar and lemon juice once a day for about a month helped me lower my cholesterol from 240 to 124. Great advice. Thank you.

    • JD on July 14, 2022 at 7:03 am

      Seems a lot above average as typically we can see about 20% improvement genetically. I’m glad it worked well for you.

      Can I just mix 1tsp of acv in my 32oz water bottle or is it better to drink it less diluted?

    You are educating people in a fast friendly way. Giving many poor people the information and facts they need to make better choices to prolong their lives and be with their families. The world needs more people like you. God bless you and your family.

      Unfortunately many of the simple remedies the doctor recommends appear to go against regular medical practices and most other doctors do not follow the same protocols. 😪

    I have liver cancer. I’ve had an ablation (where they go into the liver to remove the cancer). They didn’t get it all so now I’m on transplant list. I won’t write a book on it but they score you from 1-40; 40 being the worst. I was at 38 before taking ACV and Balance of Nature. You need to be at 32 to actually get a new liver. Fast forward 5 years; My score is now an 8. Meaning I’ll never get a new liver because mine is working just fine. Currently, the cancer is undetectable.

    • Ronnie King on July 23, 2022 at 3:13 am

      I love watching you learning a different way of living. I’m 57 and I love to exercise with weights.Hoping to get in shape and have muscle. Thanks for teaching us all a new way to live a better life

    I really appreciate doctors who take the time out of their busy days to make these videos to educate people. That is service to humanity. Thank you x

    • Jan Br on June 9, 2022 at 3:48 pm

      @Nancy Ayers English isn’t my main language but he explains it so well it’s easy to understand and if you don’t understand some words just google them. You will learn something and you can’t expect him to make it even more easier lol

    • Magar6 on June 16, 2022 at 9:17 pm

      Excuse me? He monetizes his videos like crazy, and he even sells his own products. He’s not doing this out of the kindness of his heart, oh sweet summer child.

    • Cheryl Hayward-Ferris on July 21, 2022 at 1:43 pm

      Thank you Dr. Eric 🙏😀

    • Brent Golden on August 30, 2022 at 10:05 pm

      @Nancy Ayers You’re annoyed? maybe learn a thing or two. What would you expect him to call mitochondria? Little energy making thingies? This isn’t kindergarten, and you have google at your finger tips. Use it.

    • Cynde Phillips Hohbein on November 21, 2022 at 3:24 pm

      @Magar6If the info is pertinent and helpful for you, who cares re the rest of “it?”. Verifiable data on your statements? Is he doing anything illegal or unethical?Dr B is providing a service ~ why as are you annoyed?

  5. TheCatcherInTheRye leon on October 29, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Super nicely presented, and I stand by everything you said. I felt it on myself how good organic apple cider vinegar with water and even coconut oil helped me. I ve been taking vit C every day for the last 5 years and my health has been awesome. Of course the quantities can be adjusted for every person based on height, body volume, muscle mass etc. God bless you and Shalom !

    • Jesus is my GOD on December 12, 2021 at 12:25 am

      Yeah, I have always been fascinated by how fruits and veg can help and heal you. So many wonderful things that the Doctors at doctor’s offices do not tell you, just hand you a prescription for. Cheers,

    • Ernesto Mina on May 26, 2022 at 10:44 pm

      Thanks for sharing. Which name brand vitamin C did you take and how did u take the coconut oil, on its own?

    • TheCatcherInTheRye leon on May 26, 2022 at 11:02 pm

      @Ernesto Mina I buy the Vit C from Costco (orange bottle). And the coconut oil I take mixed with some hot chocolate. I use a small tea spoon of coconut oil dissolved in a cup of hot chocolate, and it tastes as if I added milk. The apple cider vinegar I mix it with some cold water (small quantity of vinegar ~ about the width of a finger, or less) and I drink it fast (without tasting it) as if it would be a strong alcoholic drink . The acidity of the vinegar is balanced out by drinking the mixture of coconut oil with hot chocolate. It cures stomach problems and cleans out the arteries.

      @Dr. Eric Berg DC I LOVE all your posts! You are amazing in the way you explain everything!

  7. Joanne Lucille on December 5, 2021 at 7:31 am

    Thank you, Dr. Berg! I’ve been drinking lemon water first thing in the morning and throughout the day for almost half a year and my digestion improved a lot. I used to have indigestion, nausea and bloating often, due to a sluggish gallbladder. I avoid deep fried foods, even fried eggs, soda, garlic and onions, which are like poison to my body and I feel great 😃👍

    • CS B on May 31, 2022 at 7:23 pm

      He has a video on TUDCA for the liver that helped me a lot

    • seb on June 22, 2022 at 12:05 pm

      Be careful to rinse your teeth, the lemon will destroy the enamel !

    • D G on July 15, 2022 at 2:12 am

      Look into CHOLINE. I lost my gallbladder and wish I knew this first.

    • Jordan on August 27, 2022 at 6:34 pm

      I believe garlic is beneficial to the body? Does your body react badly to garlic..just out of curiousity? Thanks

    • JustHereToHear on September 21, 2022 at 6:09 am

      @D G Hey can you elaborate o the choline gall bladder connection?

  8. Gloria Hurtado Lima on December 12, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    Thanks you, Dr. Berg, for all the important health information that you share with us.

  9. Dony Williams on January 7, 2022 at 4:22 pm

    I took his advice. I started drinking some apple cider vinegar with lemon, through a straw to protect my teeth, in warm water every day. I had had mild high blood pressure for maybe 20 years.Not long after I started drinking this, it went to normal.

    • JustHereToHear on September 20, 2022 at 1:22 pm

      @Jumbo 71 Sorry but just to clarify – so you have a clove of garlic every morning half an hour before your meal. You have it whole, without chewing it. Right?

    • Jumbo 71 on September 20, 2022 at 1:54 pm

      @JustHereToHear just eat one bit clove cut if to big into half on empty stomach in morning.. never chew and never crush or it will make breath stink rest of the day…

    • Raven Gypsy on November 18, 2022 at 2:54 am


    • D Mac on November 18, 2022 at 10:13 pm

      Hibiscus Tea and lemon and garlic water…Beetroot tablets is good for HBP

    • Vicki Style on December 11, 2022 at 3:56 am

      I like it enough that I drink it as a warm drink. I drink plain water after each sip to rinse my teeth.

  13. Tim Torkelson on July 7, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Can’t stress enough to follow Dr. Berg!! Very good info and easy to listen / learn as his delivery is spot on! Keep up great work Doc

  14. JD on July 14, 2022 at 6:54 am

    My bloating was out of control. I thought I had some disease. After taking greens supplements and apple cider vinegar my gut has almost disappeared after only a couple weeks. And now no more bloating it’s amazing and really does work.

    • Denise Hulick on July 20, 2022 at 10:01 pm

      How much and how many times a day do you drink this? Tks in advance! 🙂

    • JD on July 21, 2022 at 11:34 am

      @Denise Hulick what dr berg recommends. 1 spoon and 1 spoon lemon juice, or sometimes lemonade.

    • Kathy Baity on November 19, 2022 at 8:01 pm

      Yes agree with you on the bloating. It helped tremendously.

  15. Andrea M on July 24, 2022 at 1:01 pm

    I love lemon water. Been drinking it for 30 years. The taste is amazing and I drink a lot more water that way. Thanks Doc. You’re a blessing. 🙏❤️

    I have a fatty liver so I’m going to try this. It doesn’t sound like it would taste very good but if it works then it’s definitely worth a try. Thanks Dr. Berg

    • cecilia Kalekye on August 8, 2022 at 10:28 pm

      Speedy recovery dear

    • MSK PT on October 10, 2022 at 1:44 pm

      Yes the taste is bad, but add a lime and a pinch of Himalayan salt, it would taste much much better.

    I was first told by a doctor 4 years ago that I had a fatty liver. No advice, just that. Thank goodness for Dr Berg. What a wonderful man he is. I shall now start on this drink and ask the doctors for another liver test as nothing has been forthcoming!!

  18. Bong Tze Yong on December 8, 2022 at 6:40 am

    Hi Dr Berg, thank you so much for all your generous videos!
    I would like to know, does eating yogurt have the same level of function as taking lemon + apple cider?

  19. miriam hausman on December 11, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    How much apple cider vinegar do I drink to claim my fatty liver?

  20. miriam hausman on December 11, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Can I drink hot lemon juice? Will that help clean my liver?
