Apple Cider Vinegar Lowers Post Prandial Blood Sugar and Insulin

Apple cider vinegar, when taken regularly, can help manage diabetes, moderate food cravings and increase the body’s absorption of calcium resulting in healthier bones. Studies have shown that consuming a drink of 20 g of apple cider vinegar plus 49 g of water after a complex carb meal leads to a 35% lower blood glucose level one hour after eating AND average caloric intake was reduced by 300 kcal on average for the rest of the day.

To get the full health benefits of vinegar, consumers should stick to natural kinds of vinegars made from 100 percent naturally fermented ingredients like coconuts, nipa palm and apples. While vinegar has numerous benefits, those that contain unnatural ingredients can be very unhealthy.
