Diabetics can dramatically improve blood sugar levels – naturally
In a study printed in the American Diabetes Foundation’s publication, Diabetes Care – it stated that taking vinegar before meals drastically increase insulin sensitivity and reduced the insulin and glucose spikes, which occur after meals.
The study showed that healthy people along with pre-diabetics and those with type-2 diabetes all benefited from taking apple cider vinegar. All three groups had better blood glucose readings.
Another study, cited by WebMD, found that people with adult onset diabetes, who took two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar – before bed time – lowered their morning glucose levels by 4 to 6 percent. By the way, follow up studies looking at the long term effects found that moderate weight loss was part of the package.
A natural way to improve your mineral absorption
One of the other benefits for diabetics is the high acetic acid in apple cider vinegar has been shown to increase the body’s absorption of minerals in the foods that they ate. Type-2 diabetes is reversible – if the body’s balance of essential minerals is restored; diabetes is complicated by mineral deficiencies.
Popular weight loss programs often miss the “big picture” and profit from their poorly educated customer base.
Since obesity is a national problem, it is incredible that you can use an inexpensive natural product to help you see measurable results. There are studies, one published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry, which found that people who consumed ascetic acid daily for 12 weeks decreased their weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference and triglycerides.
In another study using mice, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, acetic acid seemed to prevent the buildup of body and liver fat.
A great apple cider home remedy for everyone
Apple cider vinegar has proven helpful for many everyday problems, including dandruff, acne and acid reflux – better known as heartburn. These are conditions which prescription drugs have proven to be nearly ineffective and, most certainly, extremely toxic for human consumption. Fortunately, there is a better way to care for yourself.
An apple cider vinegar solution can restore the pH balance of the scalp and discourage the growth of yeast-like fungus – which is thought to trigger dandruff and many other health-related problems.
This is one of the easiest way to tame dandruff, all you need to do is mix ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar with a ¼ cup of water – pour it into a spray bottle and spay it on the scalp, avoiding the eye and ears. A towel is wrapped around the area and left on anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour and then washed off, this is done once or twice a week.
Clear up your skin – naturally
For acne, it is recommended that you dilute it more by using one part apple cider vinegar with at least three parts water. The solution is then dabbed onto the pimples. People with acne have a delicate terrain on the skin, so it is important to never use apple cider vinegar full strength.
Could it be time to throw away the “purple pill” for stomach trouble?
Apple cider vinegar helps eliminate acid reflux by providing an acid base to tighten the esophageal muscle weakened by eating too many processed foods. Acid reflux is thought of as a low acid condition – not an overly acidic one; it also helps break down fats and promotes digestion, which helps keep heartburn at bay.
The real benefit of apple cider vinegar is it is a natural bacteria fighting agent, which contains many minerals and trace elements including potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chlorine, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron and silicon – all essential for optimal health.
