Does drinkn white vinegar help lower your blood pressure?

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. In large amounts, vinegar can lower your potassium. The hydrochlorothiazide you take also lowers potassium. Check with your doctor to make sure you don't cause problems with low potassium while trying vinegar. ...Read more

Is it true that if u take a teaspoon of vinegar a day it would bring your blood pressure down?

Apple cider vinegar: There are no good human studies to suggest apple cider vinegar is a useful treatment for bp. There was one done in rats which suggest it could help - but what that means for humans is unclear. On scale of 1-10 in terms of usefulness, i'd give it a 2.... If you wanted to try it, why not... It's cheap and won't kill you. But it's no substitute for the proven things: low salt, exercise. ...Read more

Sometimes people with low blood pressure with symptoms may require medication to stabilize it. ...Read more
