Disclaimer: Please understand Goulter's Vinegar Products Ltd has collected historical anecdotes, recipes and vinegar remedies which are not intended in anyway to be a "medical treaty". We can't guarantee therapeutic effects so please always check with your Doctor before making medical choices. Historically vinegar has been used for centuries to cure all sorts of problems - we are not reinventing the wheel, we simply want to bring about awareness around the benefits of ORGANIC VINEGAR so you can make wise choices for yourself!

Please note: Apple Cider Vinegar and its benefits cannot be substantiated by professional means. Even though ACV is time proven and if a search is done - (benefits of using Apple Cider Vinegar) - using Google, you will find lots of examples to be seen. We at Goulter’s Vinegar Products Ltd would like you to make an informed decision for yourself when working out how much ACV to take and when, which is why it is important to do your homework on Apple Cider Vinegar before you decide to take it. You are welcome to ring us at our factory on 03 546 5174 if you would like any further information. Thank you.

Apple Cider Vinegar & Blood Sugar Levels?

Apple Cider Vinegar & Blood sugar levels?

Many a claim has been made and continues to be made about the health benefits of taking ACV. To be honest there is not much science out there to back these claims. For the next couple of weeks we will be posting some educational information which does have some science to these claims.

What we DO KNOW is that Apple Cider Vinegar has been used for centuries and continues to be used to help cure many different ailments. Hence why we here at Goulter’s Vinegar Products Ltd believe in our authentic Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

We hope you find the following extract informative:

Blood Sugar
This is a claim that has been investigated. Studies in rodents have found that both vinegar [2] and Apple Cider Vinegar [3] have positive effects on blood glucose control.

In humans, consumption of Vinegar prior to a Carbohydrate containing meal has been shown to reduce blood glucose response by approximately 20-30 percent [4, 5].

However, it should be noted that total area under the curve for blood glucose 2hrs after a meal was not different between a group that consumed Vinegar and one that did not [6]. What this means is that while Vinegar consumption
reduces the initial increase in blood glucose, it does not prevent glucose absorption and instead delays it.

Indeed, Vinegar consumption has not been shown to interfere with carbohydrate absorption [7].
Instead, consumption of Apple Cider Vinegar [8] or regular vinegar (most often made from rice) [9] has been shown to reduce gastric emptying rate.

Although Vinegar has been shown to reduce the initial Glycemic response to a meal, it should be noted that the significance of the Glycemic index and Glycemic response of a meal to overall health in non-diabetic individuals has been debated [10].

In insulin resistant individuals, increases in Insulin sensitivity have also been observed following consumption of Vinegar with a high Carbohydrate meal [11]. In addition, a small, short-term intervention in type 2 diabetics observed a small reduction in fasting blood glucose when Apple Cider Vinegar was consumed prior to bed [12]. Similarly, a small study in diabetics observed a slight decrease in Hemoglobin A1C levels after consumption of 2 tablespoons Vinegar twice daily for 12 weeks [13].

However, it should be noted that this effect was not observed in a larger controlled trial in non-diabetics [14].
Although more research is needed on this topic, it does appear that consumption of vinegar with
high carbohydrate meals may help to blunt the Glycemic response and also may help blood glucose
control diabetics.
