Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Here is a look at the many ways in which apple cider benefits your health.

  • Helps in curing diabetes: Apple cider vinegar is rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, copper and fluorine. It is these nutrients that make this vinegar an effective remedy against diabetes. You can also use it to fight against type II diabetes.
  • Provides insulin sensitivity improvement: Studies have shown that apple cider vinegar lowers the body’s resistance to insulin. It improves sensitivity to insulin by 19 to 34 percent in diabetics and those who suffer from pre-diabetic conditions. It also decreases the level of blood sugar. You can gain these benefits by taking it before you sleep or make it a part of your daily diet.
  • Decreases levels of blood glucose: Through the regulation of the body’s Glycemic Index, apple cider vinegar lowers the level of blood glucose levels. It is the acetic acid in the vinegar that allows it to stabilize the body’s metabolic process. By slowing down the process of carbohydrate-conversion into glucose through absorption of bicarbonates, it lowers blood glucose levels.
