2. Lowers Blood Pressure
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects over 80 million Americans and its wear and tear on the arteries and heart can lead to coronary disease and heart failure. The acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar can help eliminate cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood vessels which cause a thickening, hardening, and narrowing of artery walls (contributing to high blood pressure).
Apple cider vinegar plays a part in boosting circulation too and helping lower the pressure at which your heart needs to pump blood through your body. As well, a study from the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry also found that in rats, acetic acid (like is found in apple cider vinegar) positively affected the levels of renin, an enzyme that helps regulate blood pressure.
