Good News! Vinegar Offers Benefits for Blood Sugar
Solid research does show that vinegar supports healthy blood sugar levels:
The American Diabetes Association reports that vinegar improves insulin sensitivity to high-carb meals in people with type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance.
A study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that vinegar helped people reduce their blood sugar by 34% after eating 50 grams of white bread.
The American Diabetes Association reported that drinking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar at bedtime can lower morning fasting blood sugar by 4%.
Additional studies demonstrate that vinegar improves insulin function and can help lower blood sugar levels after eating.
Epigenetic age acceleration and some chronic diseases are related to high blood sugar. People with type 2 diabetes have difficulty regulating their blood sugar levels because they experience insulin resistance (insulin can’t penetrate the cells) or aren’t producing enough insulin. The best way to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels is through the diet-limiting the intake of refined carbs and sugars. NOTE: People who take medicine to regulate blood sugar should consult their doctor before beginning a vinegar consumption regimen.
