Apple Cider Vinegar Improves Blood Sugar Regulation And Speeds up Weight Loss


The vinegar, which is also called a “sour vine” is used by the ancient Babylonians over 5.000 B.C. Hippocrates-the father of the medicine, has been using the apple cider vinegar for many medicine issues such as treating wounds and coughing. During some studies it was proved that apple cider vinegar is very effective in improving the blood sugar regulation and stimulates the weight loss.


The fermentation process is divided in two parts. The first part is when the yeast and bacteria are transforming the sugar into alcohol. The second part is when the acetobacterium cause the oxidation of alcohol into acetic acid through a slow and lengthy process.

The acetic acid distinguishes apple acid vinegar by giving it a acidic and vitriolic flavor and by leaving a cloudy substance known as ‘the mother’ on the bottom of the glass. The apple’s fermenting bit is the mother and it contains a lot of enzymes. Raw, unpasteurized ACV vinegar with the mother intact is the most recommendable for using.

Blood sugar control

The ACV is mostly used like a salad dressing. When you are intending to consume some foods that are requiring longer period for digestion, like beef or pork you should drink a little bit of the apple cider vinegar. A Japanese research proved that with the replacing of pickled cucumber with a fresh one, the glycemix index will be reduced by 30%.

Because of its antiglycemic characteristics the cider vinegar is very important in monitoring the sugar levels in type 2 diabetics. The main property of the vinegar is that it’s functioning as a antiglycemic factor and blocks the way of the metformin, which is the medicine took consumed by the diabetic patients. Slumber, nausea and diarrhea are all side effects form metformin.

Metformin is often linked with heart issues and liver diseases.

Larger amount of blood glucose after a meal is known as a prandial glycemia. According to some studies, combined ACV with meal will better the blood glucose sensitivity. The effects of vinegar on hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetics (known also as dawn Phenomenon) were explained in study published in the Diabetes Journal in 2007.

If you are consuming 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before your meal, there will be a decrease in fasting glucose amounts of 4-6%. Some individuals had 3-6% fasting glucose decreased while subjected under a medical treatment.

The women who combined their meal with ACV had 55% diminishing in the blood glucose.

Benefits regarding the weight loss

There are many factors that are boosting weight loss in individuals that are consuming 1-2 cider vinegar daily. The antiglycemic effect is related to the inhibition of carbohydrate synthesis by inhibiting enzymes. The enzymes are bettering blood concentration which monitors the appetite or the satiety.

The cholesterol level is improved because of the lipogenesis and fatty acid synthesis. The liver is protected by acetic acid with bigger tolerance of these two acids. The synergistic nature of increased blood flow and insulin activity is assigned into bolstered energy.

The ACV helpful effects in weight loss are proved in 155 Japanese individuals. The results proved enhanced BMI, visceral fat, serum trygliceride, etc. There are many factors that are stimulating cleansing and overall health of the liver. The weight loss can be related to the stimulation of fecal gall acid after consuming cider vinegar.
