Apple cider vinegar is an age-old home remedy that Hippocrates was said to have used. But it wasn’t until the book Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health, written by D.C. Jarvis, M.D., was published in 1958 that the medicinal use of apple cider vinegar took off.

Recently, it has become popular again for weight loss and diabetes. It's often promoted as a “fat-burner” and natural appetite suppressant.

But there's a lot you should know about apple cider vinegar if you're considering taking it. Find out about the research, benefits and possible side effects.
