Blood pressure is a measure of the force exerted by the blood on the walls of your blood vessels as it circulates through your body. Blood pressure is expressed as two numbers, systolic (top number) and diastolic (bottom number). A normal blood pressure is considered to be below 120/80 mmHg. High blood pressure (hypertension) is when your blood pressure is consistently above 140/90 mmHg. It increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
Apple cider vinegar is often acclaimed as a home remedy for high blood pressure, but there’s not much scientific evidence to support this claim.
Here Is How To Use It
- Drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in a glass of water, once or twice a day.
- Make a salad dressing with apple cider vinegar and olive oil, and use it on your salads.
- Use it in cooking, as a marinade or in sauces.
Apple cider vinegar does help lower blood pressure, if you take it correctly and it is only for certain types of high blood pressure.
For example, a casual user of apple cider vinegar (ACV) will not notice a great reduction in their blood pressure. You may find great relief with apple cider vinegar, if you have high blood pressure due to kidney disease.
