Apple Cider Vinegar and Blood Sugar
While apple cider vinegar probably won't make you skinny, it does appear to help with diabetes and blood sugar control.
Carol Johnston, PhD, directs Arizona State University's nutrition program. She has been studying apple cider vinegar for more than 10 years and believes its effects on blood sugar are similar to certain medications.
"Apple cider vinegar's anti-glycemic effect is very well documented," Johnston says. She explains that the vinegar blocks some of the digestion of starch. "It doesn't block the starch 100%, but it definitely prevents at least some of that starch from being digested and raising your blood sugar," Johnston says
Don't drink it straight. It's so acidic that it could harm your tooth enamel and your esophagus . Don't use a lot. "Dilute 1 to 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water, and sip it along with your meals one or two times a day," Johnston says.
