Vinegar for Sugar
For Diabetes and Glucose Intolerance

US MED's Diet TipThereís a simple drink that can help control your sugar cravings and help you eat less. Chances are you have some in your cupboard already. A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that using more vinegar to season your food or even drinking vinegar mixed in water with a meal reduces the bodyís insulin response during digestion, which is important for tempering sugar cravings and avoiding weight gain. The subjects of the study fasted overnight and ate white bread along with a glass of water containing varying amounts of vinegar. Those who drank the most vinegar (about 2 to 3 tablespoons) had glucose and insulin responses about 25 percent lower 90 minutes after the meal and felt more full than those who didnít consume any vinegar with their meal.
