Blood pressure issues can be dangerous and therefore must be treated appropriately. Please do not take chances. See your doctor, reduce weight if you are heavy, decrease salt, and exercise as per your MD. ...Read more

Thanks

Neither: If you are otherwise healthy -- in particular, if your kidneys are working normally -- this will neither help nor harm your health in any way.

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
