Apple cider vinegar increases nitric oxide production that helps relax blood vessels so as to lower blood pressure.

-Detoxify the blood

Drinking apple cider vinegar helps strengthen your liver so as to detoxify the blood and reduce the kidneys’ workload which helps set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.

-Strengthen immune system

Infection, cold or some other diseases may add insult to injury. The malic acid in apple cider vinegar is a strong antiviral, which helps you reduce the chance of colds and infection.

-Decrease glucose levels

If your kidney disease is caused by diabetes, apple cider vinegar is a good choice for you to lower blood sugar, because it is full of acetic acid, which slow down the digestion of simple carbohydrates, thus regulating blood sugar levels.
