Vinegar can help manage blood sugar release

Vinegar, when taken regularly, can help manage diabetes, moderate food cravings and increase the body's absorption of calcium resulting to healthier bones....

Vinegar Reduces Postprandial Glycemia

Quote:
The study by the Arizona State University researchers concluded that, "The antiglycemic properties of vinegar are evident when small amounts of vinegar are ingested with meals composed of complex carbohydrates."

The study claims that postprandial glycemia is reduced by vinegar, a view endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, which said that the reduction of PPG is crucial in the management of diabetes.

Investigators in the department of nutrition at Arizona State University tested a simple vinegar drink -- 20 g of apple cider vinegar, 49 g of water, and 1 teaspoon of saccharine -- on 10 healthy, nondiabetic volunteers.

For comparison purposes, on different days, subjects were assessed after consuming a placebo drink consisting of 60 g of water and 1 teaspoon of saccharine or a calcium acetate drink. On each occasion, the drink was consumed after subjects had eaten a breakfast of bagel and orange juice on an empty stomach. Blood samples were drawn at 0, 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes after the meal.

Carol S. Johnson, RD, and colleagues report that after subjects consumed the vinegar drink, their 60-minute glucose excursions were 35% lower than after placebo. On average, energy consumption was reduced by >300 calories for the rest of the day, according to the group. No difference was noted following the calcium acetate drink.

Before this, a Swedish study published in the September 2005 issue of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition stated that consumption of vinegar with white bread "cut expected rises in insulin and blood sugar" and made the subjects feel fuller.

In 2006, university scientists in Ebetsu, Japan, found that vinegar increases the extraction of calcium from food. They claimed that a diet containing 1.6 percent vinegar for 32 days increased calcium absorption.

To get the full health benefits of vinegar, consumers should stick to natural kinds of vinegars, including Supremo Cane Vinegar. Made from 100 percent naturally fermented ingredients, it is one of the few all-natural vinegars available locally. Other natural sources for vinegar include coconuts, nipa palm and apples.

It is always safer to choose all-natural vinegars made from pure cane. While vinegar has numerous benefits, those that contain unnatural ingredients can be very damaging to healthy athletes.

I started using vinegar a few days ago--but I also noticed I'm slightly swollen in the face too. Could there be any connection or just coincidence?

since this study was done after a pure carb meal, I wonder if it has any applicability to us?

Lucky, vinegar is a diuretic, so it doesn't seem plausible that the swollen face is related to vinegar.

Yes, I believe it does, because the high carb meal only highlights the actions.

I think there are those of us here who are Diabetic, have food cravings, need calcium absorption etc.

Vinegar has been a hot topic on LCFs for many years.

So there is a good reason that I've always put vinegar on french fries. I just did it cause it cut the grease and tastes good. Interesting

Interesting...in many traditions, honey is used as a medicine, more so than a food, and usually combined with apple cider vinegar, maybe to mitigate the blood sugar response to the honey.

I'm overseas now and I'm not sure if the vinegar I have is the real stuff--or the processed stuff with no enzymes. If I use the processed stuff, will it have any value or should I just want to get home again?

Many years ago when the first Glycemic Index Books were coming out, Jean Brandt, one of the first reseachers into this, wrote a book which included info on this. According to her, lemon juice, lime juice & all vinegars with the exception of balsamic, have the happy effect of lowering the glycemic index of any meal, so having one of these as part of a salad dressing is a good way to moderate the GI of any meal.

That sounds good to me. But I've also been reading about the enzymes in pure vinegar that get destroyed in pasturizing it. Is there something from these enzymes that are beneficial other than just helping to moderate the GI? I did notice today that I drank a few tsp of processed vinegar and it did help my appetite which was roaring (as usual).

Lucky4,

I think it's the acetic acid, so any vinegar should do for altering the GI of a meal.
