I use Stevia to sweeten the ACV
I take a teaspoon of ACV twice a day, morning and evening. I mix it with two packets of Stevia and about 3/4 cup of water. It actually tastes pretty good.
So far (about four months) I haven't even had a twinge of gout. I also watch what I eat and keep the meats to a minimum (about 4 oz per day), no seafood, and no alcohol of any kind. My blood pressure and cholesterol are normal.
My doctor agrees with using ACV and says it's good for helping several maladies. We have a good relationship and he actually listens to his patients, something rare in a doctor nowadays.
