Apple cider vinegar can be used for type I and type II diabetes. It has the ability to regulate blood sugar levels.
Apple cider vinegar has many health benefits. Firstly, it can be used instead of medication because it has the same effect. Apple cider vinegar has the ability to prevent sugar and starch digestion and this is actually the same effect that those prescribed medications have.
In case of type I diabetes, increase in blood sugar levels caused by food can be serious. Based on a research, it was concluded that apple cider vinegar managed to reduce blood sugar levels after meals in patients with type I diabetes. Just add two tablespoons of ACV into your meal in order to reduce levels of sugar.
When it comes to type II diabetes, one study found that intake of ACV enhanced insulin sensitivity. Participants of this study were given 40 grams of ACV with 40 g of water and 1 teaspoon of saccharine after a meal.
In addition to all this, ACV has an effect on glucose level in healthy people. In this study, blood sugar levels in people who ate salad with vinegar were regulated.
This vinegar can also be used after a period of fasting. Based on a study, it was concluded that intake of two tablespoons of ACV before going to bed helps regulate fasting blood glucose in type II diabetes.
If you want to regulate blood sugar level with ACV, suggested dosage is one or two tablespoons of ACV. Suggested dosage after a meal is two tablespoons of ACV, as a salad dressing or mixed with a glass of water. If you want to drink it before bedtime, mix two tablespoons of ACV in a glass of water.
As acid is bad for your teeth, do not consume undiluted ACV.
If you don’t like the taste of ACV, you can add honey into the mixture. However, bear in mind that honey is sugar.
