#103 Apple Cider Vinegar for lowering HBP?

Hearsay evidence suggests that Apple Cider Vinegar is a miracle cure for some people with HBP.  Scientific studies appear to remain mixed.  Some studies do find rather significant reductions in blood pressure from folks taking fairly small amounts of Apple Cider Vinegar.

I must admit I tried vinegar at one point, but I found the taste terrible, and quit.  I read later that one must dilute it with water — otherwise it destroys tooth enamel and can burn the throat.  yes, I concur with that.
Reading all the various articles, it seems to me that there is something going on with apple cider vinegar.  The scientific people aren’t really sure of the mechanism of the effect, but it does appear to lower BP.

The long term impacts of using apple cider vinegar daily are not known, but studies indicate that short term use, for a few weeks at a time are likely fairly safe.  Some of the articles below give some suggested dosages…. a few teaspoons per day in other juice appears sufficient if it is going to work for you.
I would suggest, as I do with all these suggested natural cures, that one doesn’t overdue any particular method.  Eating celery is a great way to reduce blood pressure, so is taking beet juice, however, I wouldn’t recommend flooding your body with large amounts of celery and beet juice, continuously for months at a time.  Eat celery for a couple of weeks, take a break, have beet juice, etc.  Variety is the spice of life.
Apple Cider Vinegar appears promising,  I think I will put it back on my list of things to try out….  I would recommend just don’t go overboard, and don’t do it for more than 3 months without a month off.
