Does apple cider vinegar work in reducing high blood pressure?

The answer to this question, does apple cider vinegar lower blood pressure, is somewhat complex in its simplicity. In essence, yes, it does, but only if it’s taken correctly and only for certain types of high blood pressure.


For example, a casual user of apple cider vinegar will not notice a great reduction in their high blood pressure. Furthermore, a person who has high blood pressure due to kidney disease or other organ ailment may find themselves finding relief with ACV, but not stellar results, advise medical experts.

The key in using apple cider vinegar is in using it correctly, sticking with it, and trying to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle in addition to relying on ACV for help in lowering blood pressure.

That being said, apple cider vinegar does work in lowering high blood pressure in many people, and is worth adding it to your own healthy diet to see what it can do for you.

How does apple cider vinegar work in lowering high blood pressure?

Apple cider vinegar for blood pressure is believed to work in a number of ways. First, it is a great component in helping to lower bad cholesterol, which in turn has a positive effect on blood pressure.

AVC is also a detoxifier, and can help your body fight off diseases and release free radicals that wreak havoc on your body on a daily basis, which also indirectly can help to reduce blood pressure. When you use apple cider vinegar for high blood pressure remedy, you are most likely giving your entire body a boost, not just treating your blood pressure issues.

Here’s a short video explaining the benefits of ACV for high blood pressure

How does apple cider vinegar lower blood pressure exactly? This isn’t entirely known, but medical studies have shown that people who consumed apple cider vinegar in their daily meals showed lower levels in their blood pressure without changing anything else in their diets, according to recent medical reports. You can have the same results in simply adding ACV to your daily diet.

How to take apple cider vinegar for blood pressure issues

Luckily, there are many ways you can incorporate apple cider vinegar into your daily life. ACV is available in pill or capsule form if you are unwilling or unable to stomach the sour flavor, without sacrificing the potency of this natural cure-all.

It can also be put into common foods and soups (a few tablespoons of the liquid will do), to hide the flavor in regular meals. Apple cider vinegar is often drunk as a healthy morning tonic, and combined with lemon juice, warm water, and a dash of organic honey, can be a rather tasty beverage that not only helps to lower high blood pressure but gives your body a metabolic boost to start the day with as well.

If you suffer from acid reflux or heartburn and are worried about the acidity of ACV, another way to consume the liquid is to combine apple cider vinegar with a teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda tames the apple cider vinegar acidity while allowing the beverage to be easily consumed, mixed with water.

The best way to take apple cider vinegar for health

Ideally, apple cider vinegar should be taken every single day for optimum results. For those suffering from high blood pressure in particular, keeping current on a regimen of ACV consumption is key in regulating blood pressure to a healthier level. This means if you rely on apple cider vinegar for your health needs you need to make sure you create a ritual of taking the liquid (or capsule or pill) on a daily basis for the best results.

That being said, there is a proper amount you should be taking so you are getting the most from the apple cider vinegar you are taking, and not all ACV brands and types are the same. Apple cider vinegar is best when consumed in the amount of 2 tablespoons a day, whether in liquid or the equivalent in capsule or pill form, and the best type of AVC to buy is the organic or virgin varieties.

This way, you is more likely to be consuming a more ‘pure’ version of apple cider vinegar, and not the commercial diluted version that is commonly sold in grocery stores.

If you are considering adding apple cider vinegar to your lifestyle you should consult with your doctor before moving forward so you make sure that you’re not conflicting with any current medications you’re already taking. This way, your doctor can be aware of any alternative methods of health you are using and can help monitor your health based on this knowledge.

When using apple cider vinegar for help with high blood pressure, you can find quick relief. When drinking or consuming apple cider vinegar pills or capsules, keeping consistent is the best way to get positive results in lowering high blood pressure.

Inexpensive, reliable, and certainly assessable, AVC is a great way to naturally reduce high blood pressure, remove toxins from the body, and keep your body in overall optimum health which is beneficial for the heart and whole body.

Apple cider vinegar is more than just a kitchen staple, it’s a great health tool as well, and you can have wonderful results in using it for lowering high blood pressure every single day.

    I’m a 47 year old truck driver and federal D.O.T requires my blood pressure & cholesterol be kept under control. On my 2nd day of a cap ful per day. I’ll let you know how it goes

  • My blood pressure spiked so bad that I went to see my cardio specialist ,
    fortunately there was no damage to my heart. But three weeks later my blood pressure dropped to 112/77. I got such a shock I rushed to my doc who
    told me to stop my medication immediately .What I failed to tell them both
    that I have been taking ACV for the past two months.This has to be a miracle as I hated taking all those blood pressure pills.

  • Sandra

    Can you take ACV without water and have it still lower your pressure?

  • fern1000

    I was on Lozartan at a baby dose. My doctor took me off about a year ago and my blood pressure stay at a safe level, I randomly took it last week and noticed it was back to 160/90. My cholesterol also shut up to 200, 6 month ago it was perfect. I will try this and see what kind of results I get!

    • Danish

      did you try? if yes, then result?

      • fern1000

        No results, I went back on blood pressure meds.

        • Rachel A Quayle

          That’s a real shame. Did you take it daily? If you take it as part of your morning routine everyday, I have 20mls in the morning and evening, it also produces other health benefits along the way. It reduces inflammation of the joints caused by arthritis. It can also be beneficial to keeping blood thinned to the normal consistency to reduce the risk of clots forming and travelling from your heart to other parts of your body.

    I want to use acv

  • Debashree

    My blood pressure stays 156/98 and This has been the scenario for the past six months. My doctor has recommended Telmisartan 40 mg once a day. Will ACV work in my case. I am 45 years old.

    • Danish

      did you try? result?

  • Candy

    When I took ACV daily, I developed like diaper rash, I burned and it hurt horribly, how can I take it and not get this?

    • Rachel A Quayle

      How were you taking it? Orally and diluted? Where did your rash develop? I hope you weren’t applying it directly to your skin undiluted? When taken, or applied, correctly ACV is an amazing cure all!

      • Candy

        I drank it, 8 oz of water and honey. I stopped, it stopped, so…must be I can’t handle it?

  • Rachel A Quayle

    One sip of ACV instantly gets rid of the hiccups. I used a poultice of freshly crushed garlic and organic ACV on my son’s ankle. I wrapped it in glad wrap and moistened it every 2 hours. He had returned from his father’s house with early stages of cellulitis. This was the second time. First time Dr put him on antibiotics for weeks. I don’t like antibiotics. I treated my son the second time. It was bloody amazing! Within 48hrs the swelling was significantly reduced, and the redness was gone. I continued for 2 more days to ensure the infection was gone. He was up and running around after that and it has never returned. Even he sings its praises and he is 10 yrs old! My RN at work (I’m an EEN) wishes we could treat some of our patients with it, but we need family permission and sadly in a hospital they seem convinced that treatment must be from big PHARMA.
