I have heard many different pros and cons about apple cider vinegar supplements, some say that there can be health risks. Should i take them daily?

In brief: Vinegar OK,not supps

I'm not sure what you mean by apple cider vinegar (acv) supps- there is little harm in taking acv itself when properly diluted ; some evidence of benefits, but i wouldn't take it in pill form. See http://altmedicine.

The main potential harm is stomach irritation which is minimized by diluting it in water. I am skeptical about the claim it can lower potassium & cause osteoporosis- this is based on one case report & there were likely other factors.
