"Blood pressure (strictly speaking: vascular pressure) refers to the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels, and constitutes one of the principal vital signs. The pressure of the circulating blood decreases as blood moves through arteries, arterioles, capillaries, and veins; the term blood pressure generally refers to arterial pressure, i.e., the pressure in the larger arteries, arteries being the blood vessels which take blood away from the heart. Arterial pressure is most commonly measured via a sphygmomanometer, which uses the height of a column of mercury to reflect the circulating pressure (see Non-invasive measurement). Blood pressure values are reported in either kilopascals (kPa) or in millimetres of mercury (mmHg), despite many modern vascular pressure devices no longer using mercury.
Typical values for a resting, healthy adult human are approximately 120 mmHg (16 kPa) systolic and 80 mmHg (11 kPa) diastolic (written as 120/80 mmHg, and spoken as "one twenty over eighty") with large individual variations. These measures of arterial pressure are not static, but undergo natural variations from one heartbeat to another and throughout the day (in a circadian rhythm); they also change in response to stress, nutritional factors, drugs, or disease. Hypertension refers to arterial pressure being abnormally high, as opposed to hypotension, when it is abnormally low. Along with body temperature, blood pressure measurements are the most commonly measured physiological parameters."
The most popular remedie 03/17/2011: Margaret from Knoxville, Tn replies: "I have been taking one to two tablespoons of organic ACV with one to two teaspoons of good local honey with a couple of ounces of warm water first thing in the morning for over two years. I take it for a number of reasons. I did not have true blood pressure issues prior to starting - usually running about 110/70 sometimes up to 120/70. However, after about six months on the ACV, it is consistently 100/60.
I actually started on the ACV for rheumatoid arthritis pain because I am not interested in prescription drugs. The ACV with honey and water controls the RA pain. You will have to keep taking the ACV to keep your blood pressure down. If you stop, it will begin to creep back up. However, the ACV has so many wonderful effects in the body, I can't see any reason to stop. I would say, however, that everyones should be sure to "swish and swallow" with clean water following the ACV because it can be really hard on the tooth enamel otherwise."
