Distilled vinegar should not be used internally since it is highly demineralizing. Quality vinegars for internal use contain more of their own minerals; even so, these are potent and should be used in moderation. The best types of vinegars are organic, naturally brewed, unfiltered and unpasteurized versions of apple cider, rice wine, white wine, and Umeboshi.
