Yuk: Apple cider vinegar? Yuk. Why would you take that? It has not been shown to have beneficial health effects, and may cause gastric problems. To lower blood pressure, instead use things that are supported by a tremendous amount of scientific evidence that they work and are safe! Diet, exercise, and medications approved by the FDA.
