The 5 Mix is a specially prepared tonic of five ingredients that many have found helpful for a variety of heart related conditions. It is also used to prevent heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Recipe for The Five Mix

  • 1 cup raw and organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup ginger juice
  • 1 cup garlic juice
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
  • 3 cups of raw honey

Use as high a quality of ingredients that you are able to obtain. Organic is preferred. The easiest way to get the garlic and ginger juice is with a juicer. But if you do not have a juicer, you can blend the garlic (or ginger) and then squeeze out the juice. You may need to strain the juice through cheesecloth or a coffee filter.

You do not have to use 1 cup of each, but use the same cup to measure each ingredient so you will have the correct proportions of each.

In a pot that is glass or ceramic, combine the ginger juice, garlic juice, lime (or lemon) juice and the apple cider vinegar. Heat the tonic over medium heat and reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for ½ an hour. If your mixture reduces to ¾ of the original amount, remove from heat, even if it hasn't been 30 minutes.

Stir in 3 cups of honey.

Cool your tonic and store in the refrigerator for up to two months.

Take 1 tablespoon of the tonic each morning on an empty stomach. You can repeat the dose in the evening if you like. Discontinue the tonic if it disagrees with you.

If you are diabetic, you should monitor your blood sugar to make sure the honey is not adversely affecting your sugar numbers.

While many have found this to help with blood pressure, high cholesterol, and blockages in the circulatory system, this remedy will not suit everyone. If you have a serious medical condition, consult your health professional to make sure the tonic will not interact with your medications.

Dosage: 1 tablespoon in the morning on an empty stomach. Dose can be repeated in the evening if desired.

Why Does the Five Mix Help?

Each of the ingredients in this mix are quite powerful healers in and of themselves. Together they give you the benefits of several heart healthy natural ingredients.

Lime (or lemon) and apple cider vinegar are commonly used to detoxify and alkalize the body. They also contain critical nutrients.

Garlic is a strong antibacterial herb. It is considered a natural blood thinner. Some use it to prevent heart attacks and high blood pressure.

Ginger helps to regulate blood pressure and high cholesterol. It also has blood thinning properties

Honey helps to improve the taste of this tonic. It also helps to preserve the tonic and also has multiple health benefits.

I recently had a visit to the ER by the friendly EMS workers. Turns out I had a AFib attack and almost passed out. Lots of talk from the doctors about shocking me back into rhythm, nuclear stress tests, echo cardiograms, and whatever else they could add to the bill. I felt like a bag of money everyone wanted a piece of. Well, I didn't feel like being injected with radioactive dye, or being anesthetized and shocked! Who knows the short and long term effects of that. So, I started doing research. This lead me to the 5 mix and primarily this site as it has the most detailed recipe.

Today I went to Walmart and purchased a juicer for $49, and the ingredients to make a batch. I overbought as I have lots left over. The garlic juiced amazingly well, as did the ginger root. I juiced the whole lemon, peel and all. My 10 year old daughter helped break up the cloves of garlic. BTW, about 9 normal sized bulbs made 2/3 cup of garlic juice. I did not cook the mixture, added the honey directly to the juice, and flipped the bottle around for a couple of minutes to mix.

I know we're supposed to take it in the morning but I had to taste it. First thoughts.... Wow, this stuff really burns, like 151 going down... lol. The honey makes it cling to your throat so you feel it from your tongue to your belly. Kind of a head rush too. I wanted to chase it with some water but didn't, and after a few minutes it wasn't so bad. The taste isn't really bad, but the ginger really kicks. The aftertaste of the garlic lingers for quite a while though. I will see how I do tomorrow and perhaps follow up if I can but I will give this a try. Sure beats being put through the medical wringer if it can be avoided.

Second day of morning dose. The burn is not so bad once the juice is cooled in the fridge. Initial slight stomach cramps after ingestion are lessened from yesterday. I still have to sit down to take it as it causes some discomfort for about 1-2 minutes after. I can tell this is powerful stuff.

Yesterday I seemed to have a bit more energy throughout the day. I will post again next week.

Ok, it's been over a week and I can say the discomfort from the mix is mostly gone. Now it's just the taste lols. I've been taking 1 tablespoon in the morning and when I get home from work. When I first started on this the discomfort felt like it was from my heart reacting but it may have been heartburn from the mix. Anyway, I don't have to sit down to take this anymore. I haven't had a chance to do some treadmill work however I will try that soon. It would be interesting to see if that nauseous feeling continues a few hours after exercise.

ACV, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Honey:

The combination of all five ingredients is super effective if made properly and followed diligently.

I make this combination for family friends suffering from high cholesterol problems.

To make approx two liters of medicine....

  • Grind 500/600 grams of Ginger
  • 500/600 grams of Garlic, use a little water if required to make a fine paste.
  • 1 kilogram Lemon to make fresh lemon juice.
  • 600 ml of ACV (Apple cider vinegar)
  • and atleast 1 kilogram of raw honey.

Mix all four contents except honey in a utensil with a thick bottom and put on high flame for 5 minutes but keep stirring continuously without stopping. then lower the flame to a little less than medium and stir for 15 minutes. Finally increase the flame to high again and stir for 5 minutes continuously and then remove the utensil from the flame and let the mixture cool down.

Once the mixture is cool add all the honey and mix well. Store it in a pet bottle and keep it in the fridge.

Before you start this dose, get a cholesterol test done for future reference.

Dosage and Method

Every morning between 5 am to 7 am absolutely empty stomach...not even water

3 teaspoons of the can go back to sleep if you need to.

First 3-4 days you may feel uneasy or maybe have a bad stomach...but don't worry.

After the first 7 days, start going for brisk walk for 20 minutes or a treadmill jog for 10 minutes at 25 KMPH. Follow this schedule for next 23 days, then get a cholesterol test done once again and check. The last person I gave this medicine...Bad cholesterol dropped from 254 to 172 in 35 days.

My best wishes to you all.

I wonder if this mixture would kinda replace CoQ10?

Replied by Timh

This mixture is a good "cleaner" for accumulated toxins & waste that collect in the arteries. CoQ10 may help prevent the clogging but would do little for clearing. CoQ10 is a primary energy source for much of the cells in the body and particularly fuel the heart muscle. CoQ10 works best in combination w/ Selenium and Full Spectrum Vit-E. CoQ10 is not well absorbed taken orally so the best is Liposomal CoQ10 or CoQ10 conjugated w/ Glutathione.

All of the ingredients for the 5 Mix make sense to me for heart health - except I do not understand why it must be heated? Wouldn't heat destroy many of the healthy nutrients? What if the ingredients were combined then refrigerated? I look forward to a better understanding of the process - thanks!


I've heard it explained in other recipes that are meant to keep more than a couple of days, that the enzymes present in fresh vegetables are prone to "digest" themselves in storage--so there may be color loss, flavor degradation, further nutrient loss--especially problematic where particular fragile nutrients are the whole point. It's why blanching--just to the point of brightening the color--actually makes all the difference in freezing and preserving.

Also, some bacteria present may become a real problem if given any time to get rolling in storage. The brief heating also makes certain nutrients more bioavailable.

I make that for my husband with a little variation. The ginger goes through the juicer and the 1 cup of juice is combined with 1 cup of garlic cloves in a high power blender. The 1 cup apple cider vinegar is warmed on the stove just enough to blend in 2 cups of raw honey. Then the 1 cup of fresh lemon juice is added, along with the ginger and garlic. It is poured into two empty glass vinegar bottles and kept in the fridge. He takes 3 or 4 Tablespoons once or twice a day. It has worked amazingly well, so I would say you do not need to cook it. He bought a tiny measuring cup that measures Tablespoon increments. 4 Tablespoons is a quarter cup if I remember right.

His skin has improved considerably. His face is much slimmer. His waist is slimmer. And I used to be able to feel his heart pounding when I put my hand under his left rib cage, now it feels nearly normal and the arrhythmia is almost undetectable. He snores much quieter and doesn't stop breathing as much as he used to.

He had very high blood pressure, 240/90 or some such about a year ago. He said it was down to 180/something a few months ago. He has been using the remedy on and off with some variation for 10 months.

Thank you EarthClinic and thank you to the people who posted the remedy!

I had a mild heart attack in 2007. Refused to take an angiogram as I recovered very quickly. For some people the dye used is kills. No way to test this out in advance. Anyway I had to take several pills supposedly all my life. I felt terrible with the medicines and scaled them down over time and in 4 months stopped them all. I continued with garlic and honey and cinnamon powder and honey ( 1 + 1 tsp ) three times a day for a year. I recovered completely. I couldn't climb the stairs earlier . After one year I could run up the stairs and not pant or feel uncomfortable......and I was 55 years old! I had also reduced my weight 78Kg from the 91Kg that I was earlier.

Now I'm 62 and still don't take any pills. I am healthier than many 40 year old's. I can walk a couple of hours a day ( at one stretch) and not get exhausted. I've been taking the 5 mix ( ginger, garlic, lime, honey, ACV) since I was 56. Two months at a stretch. Then a break of a month then another 2 months of 5 mix etc.

Yesterday another friend who started taking it just under two months ago told me his test results. He almost had a major heart attack with over 80 % multiple blocks as shown in his angiogram. He refused to have a stent or have any other invasive solution. He started taking the 5 mix three times a day. His latest angiogram showed less than 50% blocks. His earlier EF ( Ejection factor : shows how well the heart is pumping) was 40% which is not good at all. Now it is 50%! 55% and above is considered to be an average ( and safe) level . He'll get there soon. He is already back at the factory where he is working normally! There are many more I can tell you, but to all those who are scoffing at this 5 mix please continue to do so. For the others who want to get better , start on it immediately. You'll never regret it! I don't take a single pill since 2008 and neither does my friend who recovered recently!

It's better that all of you over 40 start on this 5 mix to clean out your arteries as good blood flow leads to good oxygen distribution and will keep illnesses at bay. Don't wait for a problem to surface! Please note that the angiogram shows wider arteries after several months! That's because the artery walls regain their elasticity and become ( naturally ) wider than constricted older arteries.

You can also wait for 100 to 200 years after they publish research reports that this method works. Otherwise believe in the knowledge of those who lived long before us and the results that today's users report. It is after all your life. You can do what you want with it! 5mix yourself and enjoy the rest of your life like you haven't been able to do recently!

Cheers to the Good Lord from where all the ingredients came! Use them!

My husband started 5 mix on Oct.10 when his cardiologist told him he has calcified heart valves.

He progressively grew WORSE (he developed serious shortness of breath, even when only sitting or lying and today he decided to go to hospital emergency room after he almost stopped breathing few times at night

Why? I don't think 5 mix caused it but it could be very long and severe Herxheimer reaction , (he is a chemist and has mercury fillings...).

I feel bad about pushing natural remedies at him... For me they always work but I have faith in them and his belief is very weak.

Hi Anna,

I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I read your posts today about how your husband has been taking the 5 Mix Remedy for Heart Disease Prevention: ginger, garlic, lime, honey and apple cider vinegar and is now getting his heart checked out in the ER. I had similar symptoms as your husband from taking frequent doses of apple cider vinegar. I too ended up in the ER getting my heart checked on two occasions about 5 years ago. Nothing was wrong, but it took me months to figure out it was apple cider vinegar causing severe anxiety attacks, heart palpitations and shortness of breath. It got quite scary. So if this were me, I would stop drinking apple cider vinegar immediately.

In my case, I believe the ACV rapidly depletes my magnesium levels. I still drink ACV and baking soda a few times a week (it's one of my favorite remedies on EC), but supplement it with magnesium once or twice a day and always within a few hours of drinking ACV. I also take lugol's iodine and selenium daily. I still get heart palpitations on occasion after consuming vinegar... sometimes even rice vinegar triggers it. I know to take additional magnesium then.

Hope this helps. Please let us know how he is doing. Deirdre
