Yes, seems to work: 19 year old male asks, Is organic apple cider vinegar for acid reflux a good natural treatment? Many would say yes cos it contains acetic acid, a weaker acid than Hydrochloric acid HCL normally produced by stomach. It tends to buffer or make the stomach less acidic (antacid) but still strong enough for digestion. Said to be best as 2 or 3 teaspoon-fulls in in 8 oz of water before meals.
