Diabetes and Vinegar

We have all heard about good advice to help control diabetes, but what about vinegar? While it might sound s bit far fetched, the truth is that there is more that can be derived from this liquid than you would imagine.

So how does vinegar work with diabetes? It has actually proven to be beneficial in several different ways. For one, when it is taken right before bedtime, it helps to alleviate blood sugar drops the next morning. When it is taken after a meal, it has the ability to slow blood sugar levels from rising too high.

The secret of this potentially magic elixir is acetic acid. It has been discovered that this is the ingredient that inhibits certain enzymes that digest carbs. When this occurs, it means that vinegar is available in the intestine where its presence gives certain starches and sugars a clear pass to continue throughput the digestive system without being processed. As a result, they have much less of an impact on blood sugar.


As with any other form of treatment, there are going to be those who have a better experience than others. But when you take into account the enormous potential, even a little relief is better than none.

To get past the unpleasant smell and aftertaste, it is best to include vinegar in your food instead of taking it outright. This is very easy to accomplish. The most common method is to use it as a salad dressing, along with other ingredients.

As an added bonus, it has proven to also be a good way to drop a few extra pounds. Taking a little right before a meal seems to be the trick.
