Apple cider vinegar breaks down the body's fatty, mucous and phlegm therefore improving the health and function of your liver, bladder, and kidneys. It also helps thin the blood, which prevents high blood pressure. It promotes digestion, the assimilation and the elimination processes. It helps get rid of toxic substances that can be harmful. It has been said that if you take a mixture of cider vinegar and water before a meal it will help prevent diarrhea or digestive upsets. This works especially well for picnics when food is left uncovered and not refrigerated for long periods. The potassium in apple cider vinegar also is helpful in easing the symptoms of common colds and allergies. Potassium is essential to healthy bones and teeth and it’s good for hair loss.

Have no idea about the original question, but remember, be careful with apple cider vinegar. Only buy organic with the mother; anything else won't be medicinally useful. Also be careful if you are sensitive to acid; most can handle it, but as with hot herbs, which are very good for us but some just can't handle them without irritation, vinegar can be the same problem for some people.
It can be helpful to people with stagnant digestion. Our doctor told my daughter to take one spoonful before eating. It immediately cleared up a problem that had been troubling her for some time. People usually think that indigestion is caused by too much acid. Often the reverse is true.
