    Thanks for your question!

    Apple Cider Vinegar is also known as Cider Vinegar, Malus sylvestris, Vinagre de Manzana, Vinagre de Sidra de Manzana, Vinaigre de Cidre. Click the link here for an overview, uses, side effects, interactions and dosage: APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

    While many of the of uses of vinegar are unproven or disproved, a few do have a medical research backing them up. There have been studies exploring the link between vinegar and lower high blood pressure . However, it's not clear that the vinegar was the reason.
