Use Vinegar To Lower Glucose And Insulin Responses - and even Lose Weight!

With the rampant increase in the number of Adult Onset Diabetes patients, there may be a way to lower your glucose and insulin responses to eating carbohydrates. It's by using vinegar. In a study reported in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, volunteers drank about three tablespoons of vinegar diluted in water while they ate white bread that contained 50 grams of carbohydrates. Ninety minutes later, the volunteers had a 25% reduction in blood glucose levels and serum insulin levels.

So...if you are overweight and concerned about developing diabetes, then a glass of water with vinegar (2 teaspoons apple-cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons honey) 2-3 times per day could make a difference in preventing diabetes.  It has also shown great results for energy levels (probably due to it's slight blood thinning properties and all those steaks!), and weight-loss.
