You need to buy only raw apple cider vinegar. Go to a GNC or vitamin store. Store bought (unless is says raw) is not the same.
Not true at all, in fact he truth of the matter is apple cider vinegar is inferior to specially brewed health vinegars, that's right the Chinese and Japanese have been brewing vinegars for health for centuries.
Now to explain why apple cider is inferior! When making vinegar for health, the process must relate to the immune system and metabolic pathways so the vinegar must consist of all the essential amino acids, these you can only get from protein rich foods.
Apple Cider Vinegar has very very little amino acid if any at all, because apples are not protein rich.
Japanese and Chinese medicinal herbal vinegars are specifically made from brown rice, to extract the protein rich amino acids.
Now I'm not saying apple cider is not good it is, but far from the best, because if you are not getting the essential amino acids, then your metabolism will be impaired, this is because you need the essential acids, for ATP production, ATP is the currency of energy that is delivered to all the muscle groups.
When you feel tired from work it is because the amino acids are used up, eventually the body pH will change and the quality of energy will be reduced to low quality energy, you will feel tired most of the time, and your immune system will be weakened.
So my advice would be to buy drinking vinegars, which are designed for the job. Drink with your meals to reduce blood sugar spikes from the simple carbohydrates, these are the ones that cause diabetes. Vinegar will break down the bad cholesterol levels and increase the good HDL ones.

Not forgetting that special brewed drinking vinegar will relieve heart burn and gastric problems, ACV may make it worse, becuase it is very acidic compared to health developed vinegars, that when diluted only have less than 2% acetic acid, ACV is 5% acetic acid strong enough to cause damage in some people.
Stomach acid is pH 1.5 to 2 drinking vinegars have a pH of 4 which is to say more alkaline than stomach acid, they dilute into stomach acid, causing the stomach acid to rise in pH towards alkaline levels or pH 3 for example. Vinegar balances the body pH. <!-- Edit -->
