Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Will 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of distilled water for 3 months help with plague in your arteries?

Possibly but...: Apple cider vinegar is touted as a miracle cure for many things including arterial plaque. I believe it has many health benefits but know of no scientific evidence that it clears plaque. There is limited evidence it may lower cholesterol & it may also reduce lead levels as a mild chelator; these properties may help plaque, but it would take more than 3 months. Vit k & glisodin may help even more. ...Read more

I've read that 1tblsp honey and 1tblsp cinnamon w/cup of hot water has many health benefits. Is this true?

It depends: I doubt you'll find scientific evidence as to the health benefits. That doesn't mean it is hype. A lack of evidence doesn't exclude the possibility of significant benefit. I find it best to have supplements tailored to the individual. In the U.S. naturopaths are often the best bet. If you have access to a good herbalist & I have a bias toward Chinese Medicine. (Cinnamon commonly used) ...Read more
