I read a study published earlier this yr that said an Atkins diet (low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet) can actually help reverse the effects of hypertension for overweight ppl. And it's not just because of the loss, since they compared it to a low-fat diet regimen.

I lowered my blood pressure and lost 43 lbs with the Atkin's diet. Unfortunately depression and lifestyle put me back on the sugar fix and I gained it all back. Now to start again!

I was able to lower my BP so much, my doctor asked me If I am became a marathon runner. I wish I can run 26 Miles, but no. What I did take is Apple Cider Vinegar.

Every one should try it, if you want to lower your BP and for your good health. I did it for three months. Apple Cider Vinegar cost me $2.99.

now my BP is fine, I only take once a month.

You have nonting to lose, try this before you do any thing else such as Atkin's or take any pills.

Google it - Apple Cider Vinegar to learn more. This is what they used 200 years ago for every thing. :-) Good Luck.

Apple cider vinegar huh?
Teaspoon a day?
I can put it in a little bottle and spray it on a salad, add it to the other ingredient mixings for insalata caprese [tomato and mozzerella], but other than that, ...

Are there some kind of healthy baked potato chips that are apple cider vinegar flavored? Still, don't do potato chips everyday either. Like the idea. I just don't see how I can do it every day.
Oh.. never mind. I see the person who posted this does it once a month. Whew.............................................. ......
I'm relieved now. I can do once a month.
Thanks Samnyc. Will try it !

Try a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 2 teaspoons honey and one teaspoon of bee pollen each day. Wouldn't hurt to eat some kelp tablets with that, either.
