Is it okay for an 83 years old man to drink apple cider vinegar to lower his blood pressure? Wont it hurt his stomach when he drinks it?

In brief: 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.
