There is insufficient evidence regarding the claim that it can benefit weight loss. Even though some studies have found that it can lower blood sugar and may block the body’s ability to digest starch, which would lead to a reduction in the amount of calories you digest from a meal, there is no solid clinical proof that adding apple cider vinegar to your diet will result in weight loss.

It is also important to note that some medications may interact with apple cider vinegar.

Other drugs, such as Digoxin and certain diuretic drugs should also not be combined with apple cider vinegar, due to its effects on potassium levels.
