How to Lower Blood Pressure With Vinegar

By Desi Crall ; Updated July 27, 2017

Vinegar is not only effective when used for cooking, dying Easter eggs, and cleaning windows, but it also has numerous health benefits. There have been a number of scientific studies done that show that vinegar can lower blood pressure. It is the acetic acid in vinegar that makes this simple and natural condiment so effective in reducing blood pressure when taken on a regular basis. This low-cost treatment can be done with little effort and supplies.

Purchase a large bottle of white distilled vinegar. Because it will be consumed on a daily basis, a restaurant-size bottle or one purchased from a wholesale store will last the longest.

Measure and pour four tablespoons of vinegar into a glass. Drink the vinegar by itself or mix it with other drinks or food. Consider mixing vinegar in tea, fruit juice, or salad dressing. It can also be added to meat and fish for flavor.

Consume the vinegar at least three times per day, every day.

Allow up to six months for the vinegar to lower blood pressure.

Tips

Check your blood pressure frequently, or as suggested by a physician, and keep a record of the readings.

Store the vinegar in the refrigerator for freshness.

Warnings

Check with your doctor before starting a new health regimen.
