Using Vinegar to Combat Diabetes
In one study these facts are reported, studies indicate that 2 tablespoons of vinegar before a meal WILL dramatically reduce the spike in blood concentrations of insulin and glucose that come after a meal. In people with type 2 diabetes, these spikes can be excessive and can foster complications, including heart disease, initial study, about one-third of the 29 volunteers had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, another third had signs that they could become diabetic, and the rest were healthy. The scientists gave each participant the vinegar dose or a placebo to drink immediately before they ate a high-carbohydrate breakfast consisting of orange juice, a bagel, and butter. A week later, each volunteer came back for the opposite pre meal treatment and then the same breakfast. After both meals, the researchers sampled blood from the participants.
Although all three groups in the study had better blood readings after meals begun with vinegar cocktails, the people with signs of future diabetesÃ¢â‚¬â€pre diabetic symptomsÃ¢â‚¬â€reaped the biggest gains. For instance, vinegar cut their blood-glucose rise in the first hour after a meal by about half, compared with readings after a placebo pre meal drink.
In contrast, blood-glucose concentrations were only about 25 percent better after people with diabetes drank vinegar. In addition, people with pre diabetic symptoms ended up with lower blood glucose than even healthy volunteers, after both groups drank vinegar.
In these tests, vinegar had an effect on volunteers' blood comparable to what might be expected from anti diabetes drugs, such as metformin, the researchers reported January 2005 in Diabetes Care. A follow-up study has now turned up an added, and totally unexpected benefit from vinegar: moderate weight loss up to 4 pounds a week.
Now I realize why the optimum result was near the 6 month level in my experimenting for some, and 2 years was a huge turn around for others, it was considering the weight loss factor !
