Apple Cider Vinegar Lowered Cholesterol Drastically! Found out about this site when i was looking for natural alternatives to lower my cholesterol, i was on Lescol Xl-80mg, but it was damaging my liver, so they put me on Zeta 10mg, but that only knocks the numbers down by around 30 points.My problem is that my cholesterol was well into the 300's, so i followed directions found within these forums, went on a diet and added apple cider vinegar to my routine.There were so many versions of how and when to take it, so i take 2 tablespoons in water 2x daily.After having only taken it for a little over a week i went back to the doctor for blood work and my cholesterol was at that reading 185, i'm sure its even lower now!One thing i would like to point out is that i take the organic vinegar, which has "not" been heated with the "mother" intact, also because of acid/teeth issues, i drink it through a straw and rinse my mouth with baking soda water before and after.So i really thank God for this site or i would NEVER have known about the miracle that is apple cider vinegar! Now, i'm off to find a remedy for the damage the Lescol XL 80mg did to my liver, but i am confident i'm gonna find it here!
I have found that drinking small amounts of vinegar and putting it on food such as pizza or greens has lowered my high cholesterol without the use of drugs. I was on Vytorin and have discontinued use and my last blood work showed normal cholesterol ranges.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I dilute ACV with a small amount of grape juice. I also drink close to 80 ounces of water daily. These beverages have lowered my cholesterol considerably!
just wanted to let you all know that the apple cider does work...well it works for me..i started in oct.2005 and went to the doctor one month later and my cholesterol went down 23 points...and that is by taking 1 teaspoon of acv in a cup of water..and by eating oatmeal..for one month.. thank you so much
Many people with high cholesterol have tried this drink with much success.
2 cups of grape juice
1 cup of apple juice
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
Mix together and take 2 ounces before your largest meal everyday; only 2 ounces is needed for results.
hello, ...recently, about a week ago I took the initiative to look up cholesterol on Google, in hope of finding some natural treatment for my high cholesterol. ...and I stumbled across your site, which introduced me to 'apple cider vinegar' treatment. A treatment I have applied for a week now as directed, along with considerable garlic, each day. ...and my health in that one week has had a complete turn around. I haven't felt like this for over two years. I don't know if I owe it to apple cider vinegar or the combination of that, with garlic, but my health has made a complete turn around, in just one week. And although they tell me garlic can lower blood pressure I will keep this treatment up for a while, until at least I have brought my cholesterol down to normal levels. ...anyway, from deeply down in my heart I thank you greatly, because for over two years now I have been completely down health wise, which stressed me out considerably throughout that period, since I never felt any comfort in my state of health. ...thank you very much.
I was told by my doctor that my cholesterol was high (240). I discovered your web site and learned about the apple cider vinegar, I've been trying it with water along with fish oil/flax seed oil/garlic supplements. i also added a little exercise and I've never felt so great. I will soon have another blood test to recheck my cholesterol levels. i am confident that my cholesterol levels have lowered to normal levels.
I am 48 yrs old and have suffered from severe insomnia for 9 years. I have taken ambien sleeping pills for the last 5 years just to get a good night sleep. I started taking apple cider vinegar and baking soda for eczema and it CURED my insomnia. I mean totally cured. No more sleeping pills and I am not exaggerating when I say I sleep like i did in my 20's. At first my skin felt like it was burning for a couple of days then when it was gone so were many ailments. It also lowered my cholesterol 30 points, and I no longer have acid reflux. Thank you for your website. Its been such a blessing.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
I have been taking acv for about 45 days to lower my cholesterol and in hopes of helping my blood pressure. Today, 2-14-2007 I went to my doctor for blood work. My b/p was 177 (higher then I want) but my good cholesterol was much better then my bad. I am happy and will continue my 2 times a day of 2T/acv in a glass with 1/4 t/baking soda. Thanks.
This is amazing and TRUE! Using remedies I found on this site, I lowered my total cholestrol 72..yes 72 points in one month! My Doctor called me personally to tell me NOT to fill my prescritp for Lipitor because he was "shocked" and "amazed" that my cholestol had dropped to NORMAL! He told me to "keep doing what I was doing"!
One month ago I found this website after my doctor told me my total cholestol was 272 and I'm a young 40-something year old woman! He gave me one month to "get it under control" since I was hesitant to start Lipitor.
I used ACV daily, at first 1 tsp. before each meal then working my way up to 1Tbs. twice daily, at breakfast and dinner. I also added daily at dinner time, 1200mg of Red Yeast Rice Extract, 100mg of CoQ10. 1000 mg and of Fish Oil. If I knew I were going to be eating a high fat meal, I took 3 chitosan capsules before those meals ( as needed not at each meal). I also used fresh Cilantro "chelation" daily. Basically a cilantro pesto made with 1 c. fresh cilantro, 2 Tbs. olive oil, 1/2 c. almonds, 3 cloves fresh garlic and the juice of one fresh lemon..pulse in food processor until it's a paste then eat 1 to 3 teaspoons of it daily. It worked for me, familial high cholestrol was a factor for those of you with a genetic predisposition. Try it!!!
Hi, over the past 5 years I have struggled with high cholesterol also. Last Friday I had my annual check up and today I got my results. I was ecstatic to learn that my cholesterol has been reduced significantly and I feel much better. My doctor advised me to eat raw oats. I tried that, but I find it exhausts me. So since a couple of weeks, I start my day with a mug of hot/warm water with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (not advised by my doc).
Meanwhile, I soak raw oats in just room temperature water, so I can chew it down easily. After my ACV-water, I continue with my oats in water and after that I take 1 brazil nut. After that I take a small serving of full fat yogurt spiked with 6-8 crused raw almonds, 1 banana, 2 tbs chia or flaxseeds, half a handful of raisins and 1 tsp of raw honey. Also, after every meal, I drink/eat 2 tablespoons of raw oats, again soaked in water.
I don't know if the last also contributes to my lowering cholesterol which is now a 5.88 (HDL). I strive to reach my 5.00 mark and lower. I have drastically cut down on sugar in my diet and cook also with EVOO (just 1 tbs, only if necessary) and butter. Margarines and other vegetable fats, except EVOO I absolutely do not use anymore, because studies have shown them to be very harmful to the body. I also incorporate more fruits and salads to my diet. I hope I have helped you in your journey to finding a good routine to lower your cholesterol also. I suggest you also do a total medical check-up before starting to change anything, so you can verify your progress better. I root for you.
I take the ACV with 100% Grape juice. This is also supposed to be good for high Cholesterol. In March 2013 my Cholesterol was 249. On May 6, 2013 I had a heart attack (only 56 yrs. old). Of course they put me on statins. I could not tolerate them at all. Legs felt like knives being stabbed in them, migraine headache and very weak, no energy. I immediately went to EC website and found that ACV (2X a day), Niacin(1X a day), Red rice yeast (1200mg 2X a day), Ginkgo (1 X a day), Vit D3 (1X a day) and B-12 (1X a day). I take these supplements throughout the day. My Cholesterol has dropped all the way to 186!!!!!!!
Try apple pectin. One to three times daily 1/2 hour before food on empty stomach with lots of water. I did this years ago and it brought it down very well. Doing this on an ongoing basis is a lot better than statins.
Apple Pectin For Cholesterol Reduction, Green Tea For Triglycerides
My cholesterol was around 263 when my specialist freaked out about it.
I did research and read about apple pectin, which is a soluble fiber.
I took one capsule of 750 mg for four to six months on an empty stomach in the afternoons with a large glass of water.
Six months later, my cholesterol was down significantly, and my doctor was rather surprised. The only reason I didn't take more was that my stomach is delicate and I've had problems with other supplements before.
Now I'm down to 224 and my new doctor freaked out about it. I went back to apple pectin again, and we're re-testing in six months.
My triglycerides were consistently in the high 100s and I heard at a health seminar that green tea reduces them.
I started to drink 2 cups of green tea decaf most days (can't do caffeine) and the last two times my triglycerides were 84 and 85.
They have never been so low. Keep in mind that psyllium is also a soluble fiber and any powdered supplement you can buy in the stores that contain it will do the same thing. I prefer the capsules because I can't stomach the sweet flavor of the powders. Good luck, people!
High cholesterol can be lowered by avoiding foods with trans fats in them. Trans fats tend to raise LDL (bad) cholesterol and lower HDL (good) cholesterol. They are suspected of causing many health problems, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and rigid arteries. In the ingredients list, if you see "partially hydrogenated" oils, do not eat.
