Adjunct only: Apple cider vinegar is promoted as being very good for EVERYTHING. This is perhaps okay because the stuff is safe, but you'd be reading uncritically if you were to accept all these claims. Don't neglect fitness, other lifestyle changes, and perhaps medication to address cardiovascular issues like these. Best wishes. ...Read more
Not A Rat's Chance: Quote: "There have been many lofty claims about the miraculous healing powers of apple cider vinegar, and many people do seem to be experiencing some health benefits. However, much of what you read about this product on the Internet is overstated, or simply unfounded."

No: Not a recommended treatment. A study in rats found that vinegar could lower high blood pressure (in rats). That was apple cider vinegar. No proven effect in humans that i could find.

Find and Rx cause: Please forgive my frankness. If your liver enzymes are really up, you need to work with your physician to find a treatable cause. If it's alcohol, stop. If it's a medication you're allergic to, change it. If it's hepatitis, hemochromatosis, or wilson's, your life depends on compliance. If it's lack of exercise (the most common today), hit the fitness stuff. Supplements aren't health's key. ...Read more
