Apple cider vinegar is now considered as the new health drink and getting popular in Indian fitness community. Companies claim a lot of benefits like - weight loss, blood sugar control, digestion 
Let us understand, does it really work 
Weight loss ? 

There is not much evidence supporting that apple cider vinegar can help in weight loss but there was a study done on obese Japanese people which showed that consumption of apple cider vinegar can have an added advantage on weight loss but that study also had some limitations like using of self-reporting diet dairy which can be unreliable. So if you are looking for weight loss - creating a deficit in your diet and working out still the inherent way to lose weight.

Effects on digestion? 
There are some claims that mother in the apple cider vinegar has probiotics but the matter of the fact is it has acetobacter which is not prebiotic. More research is needed in this respect.

Effect on blood sugar?
Apple cider vinegar with a meal has shown to have some positive effect on blood sugar level and more evidently in people with diabetes and insulin resistance. 

Side effect - none if taken the recommended dosage, but some people might face nausea after consuming apple cider vinegar
