Does the pill/caplet form of apple cider vinegar work as well as the liquid form?  I ordered the caplets from puritan.Com. Other benefits of avc?

Why use it?: What do you use acv for? I cannot tell you if caplet work as well as the liquid as i don't prescribe the liquid for anything and i don't know what it is used to treat.
