No: The fact that apple cider vinegar is promoted as being good for everything invites an obvious conclusion. It's natural, it tastes bad, and it's not patentable -- all qualities that make it perfect thing to sell to folks seeking a "natural remedy". If you're interested in supplements, get with an evidence-based holist. Fatty liver is serious and I wish you the best in managing it.
