					         What Effect Can Vinegar Have On Diabetes

Vinegar and diabetes ... what effect can vinegar have on diabetes?
Much more than what most people think!

According to recent research, vinegar slows the absorption of blood sugar after meals
(when drunk with meals) and, when taken at bedtime, it reduces the fasting blood sugar,
the morning.

Professor Carol Johnston, Ph.D., working on the subject of ‘Vinegar and Diabetes’, with
his research team from the ‘Department of Nutrition’ at the University of the State of
Arizona, published the results of the two following researches:

      The apple cider vinegar before meals (2004)
      The apple cider vinegar at bedtime (2007)

In 2010, the University of the State of Arizona published the results of another research,
this one to determine the effect of apple cider vinegar on blood sugar of healthy adults.

      The apple cider vinegar with meals for healthy adults (2010)

Other natural methods…

There is a detailed report on other natural and safe methods to help reduce blood sugar.
This e-book ‘The Diabetes-Reversing Breakthrough’.

This book has an abundance of statistics and explains the symptoms and risk factors for
diabetes ‘Type 1, 2’ and for pre-diabetes and includes periodic blood tests performed in
the laboratory and home testing kits recommended.

It concludes with a program for diabetes control, better eating habits, lifestyle and has
adapted some herbal supplements.

Study No. 1 of vinegar and diabetes
Cider vinegar before meals…

The team of researchers from the University of the State of Arizona has recently shown
that drinking apple cider vinegar slows the rise in blood glucose after eating a meal high
in carbohydrates.

These results were reported in the scientific journal ‘Diabetes Care’ in 2004. (See
References).

The test process - vinegar and diabetes…

In this study, 29 people were given a breakfast of orange juice and a bagel, a total of 87
grams of carbohydrates.

Two minutes before the meal, half the subjects received 20 grams (about 4 teaspoons) of
cider vinegar in 40 grams of water and 1 teaspoon of saccharine. The other group
received a placebo drink.

A week later, the test was redone, but the opposite: the group that received the placebo
drink was given the cider vinegar and vice versa.

The blood glucose level of the participants was measured before and after lunch.
Participants were classified into 3 groups as follows:

   1. 10 people with ‘Type 2’ diabetes
   2. 11 people in pre-diabetic stage (insulin resistant)
   3. 8 healthy individuals (control group)

Test results - vinegar and diabetes…

Analysis of the results showed that in the three groups, the consumption of cider vinegar
slowed the rise in blood glucose after a lunch rich in carbohydrates:

   1. For the group of ‘Type 2’ diabetes, their glucose levels dropped by 19%
   2. For the pre-diabetes group, their glucose levels after meals down 34%

Observations and conclusions - vinegar and diabetes…

Based on these results and on two other recent research (see references 2 & 3), Dr.
Johnston believes vinegar tonic influences the absorption of foods rich in carbohydrates,
which reduces the rise in blood glucose that normally occurs after a meal.

She says: "The acetic acid in vinegar may inhibit enzymes that digest the starch so that
the carbon molecules are not available for absorption and are eliminated as feces."
"Vinegar appears to have similar efficacy to that of some of the most popular drugs
against diabetes" (Acarbose or Metformin) to continue Dr. Johnston, "further research to
analyze the effectiveness of vinegar as a therapy against diabetes justified."

This is particularly important because we expect to see an increase of about 50% of
‘Type 2’ diabetes in the United States of America in the next 25 years.

In addition, two recent large-scale trials, the Diabetes Prevention Program and STOP-
NIDDM, have shown that therapeutic agents used to improve insulin sensitivity in
diabetics could also delay or prevent the onset of diabetes ‘Type 2’ diabetes in people
pre-diabetic phase.

Study No. 2 of vinegar and diabetes
Cider vinegar at bedtime…

In August 2007, a second study was conducted at the ‘University of the State of Arizona’.
This time it was to determine the effect of apple cider vinegar on blood glucose, fasting
in people with ‘Type 2’ diabetes.

The test process - vinegar and diabetes…

11 people with ‘Type 2’ diabetes, not taking insulin but have a prescription for oral anti-
diabetics, should either take one ounce (30 grams) of cheese and water (placebo) or 1
ounce (30 grams) cheese, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of apple cider vinegar and water for two
days.

A few days later, the snacks were reversed.
The blood glucose level, at sunrise, was measured every morning.

Test results - vinegar and diabetes…

The researchers found that the average glucose levels fell by 2% for the placebo group
and 4% for the group receiving the cider vinegar.

Looking at the figures more closely, they noticed that it was the participants who had
glucose levels the highest that had benefited most from the brew cider vinegar: their
blood glucose levels fell by up to 6%.


Observations and conclusions - vinegar and diabetes…

These results demonstrate that the cider vinegar, taken at bedtime can significantly
reduce the concentration of glucose in ‘Type 2’ diabetes.

The study authors concluded that "Vinegar is widely available, it is economical and is
promising as a cure. However, much remains to be done to show that vinegar is a useful
supplement for individuals with diabetes."

Cider vinegar with meals
Adult health…

In January 2010, another study was published by the team from the ‘University of the
State of Arizona’. This time she wanted to know the effect of apple cider vinegar on
blood sugar of healthy adults.

The test process - vinegar and diabetes …

In this study, four trials at random and crossed were conducted with 30 healthy adults and
nine adults with ‘Type 2’ diabetes.
All participants ate a regular meal the night before the test, then, after a period of 10
hours, they were served a meal for the test; consisting of a bagel, butter, fruit juice
containing no more than 10 grams of vinegar. Two hours later, the test was done.

Test results, observations and conclusions - vinegar and diabetes…

When measured 2 hours after meals, the analysis of results showed, in the case of healthy
adults, who take 2 c. tablespoons (10 grams) of vinegar with a meal composed of
complex carbohydrates, reduced sugar levels by 20% compared to placebo.

10 grams of vinegar 5% acetic acid is the most effective dose for reducing blood sugar;
taking vinegar with meals is more effective than 5 hours before the meal. Researchers say
that "... drink hot tea with two teaspoons of vinegar and a little lemon juice is a delicious
drink."

They also say that the ‘American Diabetes Association’ recommends taking steps to
reduce the blood sugar after meals.

Vinegar and diabetes

Correlation between insulin levels and weight loss…

Recent medical research emphasizes the correlation between insulin levels and weight
loss. This; coupled with the fact that vinegar slows the rise of sugar after meals, lead us to
believe that taking ‘Apple Cider Vinegar’ before a meal causes a reduction in the
amount of insulin needed to digest and therefore facilitates the loss weight.
