In brief: No and no
Cider does not help with gout and drinking cider vinegar is even worse.
Popular websites talk about apple cider vinegar and how it prevents gout. It does not. It strips the enamel from your teeth and burns your esophagus. Other problems can also occur. Vinegar pills are also not safe.
