According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, high blood pressure affects 67 million Americans, which is 1 in every three adults. It is a serious condition that can lead to heart disease and coronary problems.
A study published in the Journal of Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry looked at the effect that vinegar has on blood pressure if it is introduced to your diet.
The results of the research showed that consumption of acetic acid (which is found in apple cider vinegar) caused a significant reduction in hypertension (high blood pressure).
HOW TO USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (ACV) TO REDUCE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
According to research, your body needs calcium, magnesium, and potassium to regulate your blood pressure levels. Apple cider vinegar contains each of these nutrients in relatively potent amounts, so it serves as an effective remedy for the issue.
It is highly acidic. The main ingredient is acetic acid, which is quite harsh. You should always dilute it with water or juice before swallowing.
The simplest way to incorporate ACV into your daily diet is to add 1 to 2 tablespoons to a large glass of water or other beverage. The maximum effective dose recommended is two tablespoons a day.
The apple cider vinegar contains potassium, an element that reduces the body’s sodium levels. The reduced sodium levels in your body thus reduce your blood pressure.
ACV should be used only as part of a well-balanced nutritious diet. Doctors advise that healthy blood pressure can be achieved by adopting a healthier lifestyle.
This means cutting out smoking, reducing alcohol intake, managing stress properly and getting regular exercise.
Furthermore, high blood pressure is a serious condition. 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.
