Will Vinegar Help Lower Your Blood Pressure?

In a study on spontaneously hypertensive rats, subjects fed vinegar had a significant reduction in blood pressure compared to the control subjects, as reported by National Center for Biotechnology Information. There is no scientific evidence that vinegar ingestion produces the same effect on humans.

While there is a long history of the use of vinegar in folk medicine, scientific investigations are yet to back up all of the claimed medicinal benefits, says the National Center for Biotechnology Information; however, there are some promising signs. Scientific research has indicated that vinegar ingestion can reduce the glucose response to a carbohydrate load in humans, and there is also some evidence that vinegar ingestion can promote short-term satiety.
