I have no idea, but what's the supposed benefit of drinking apple cider vinegar?  I've never heard of any health benefits from it.

I've heard some speculation about it reducing the symptoms associated with acid reflux. Not sure if there is any evidence for it's effectiveness however.

I like quite a lot of malt vinegar on chips or fritters or potato waffle-more than normally  recently.  Had silly thought wondering if it has been tasting so good because my body needed something in the same way a pregnant woman craves foods with vitamins needed for pregnancy.  Maybe for digestive reasons or something.
Seemingly vinegar is good for people . I use it for cleaning also !

This is only my personal experience, but I've used cider vinegar for indigestion and find it helpful. I also drink it in water as a refreshing drink - simply because I like the taste!
Our drinking water is very alkaline, so vinegar might help just because of that.
And I use vinegar (usually cheapo distilled) to clean taps, mirrors, windows, sinks ... But that is presumably relevant to another sub-forum!
