All shining things aren't Gold. In the same way there are some myths about ACV we are going to expose :-

ACV helps in Diabetes by increasing Insulin in the body, BUT it happens only when you consume ACV with 'complex carbohydrates' i.e, Brown Rice, Brown Bread, sweet potato, etc. And not with 'simple carbohydrates' like White Rice, Sugar, Sweets etc.

ACV promotes feeling of fullness, but these effects may be due to an increase in Indigestion, not by natural Appetite. ACV slow down the rate of movement of food from stomach to lower digestive tract, by which body didn't properly absorb Sugar from food, but it sometimes results gastroparesis(delayed Stomach Emptying)

Majority of people use ACV in weight loss or for Diabetes, but there is no full proof research present, so it's better to avoid ACV. Now for the Weight loss, a proper diet and regular exercise are best.

Moreover if you wanna use ACV then use it with your salad, as an ingredient in food etc, only to enhance your taste but not from a health perspective.
