No. Since the body will have to convert the ACV into an acetate form before it is utilized by the body. The body uses bicarbonates to neutralize the ACV. However not everyone has sufficient bicarbonate stores in their body. The baking soda acts as a laxative effect and causes the body to retain less water retention and speed up the digestion through reduction in constipation, thus allowing weight loss.
