Weekly Tip - Apple Cider Vinegar before your meals

Apple cider vinegar is made from fermented apple cider. The fermentation process reduces the sugar content and forms probiotics which add to the health benefits. When buying apple cider vinegar always choose a raw organic option that contains the ‘mother’.

Apple cider vinegar has many benefits, but the one I would like to focus on today is ‘the benefit of apple cider vinegar before your meals’. Having a tablespoon or two diluted in a glass of water before your meal can help keep your blood sugar levels normal and prevent them from spiking. Some studies have even shown it to reduce blood sugar levels. Apple cider vinegar has additionally been shown to increase insulin sensitivity. Insulin is a hormone in our body responsible for controlling how much sugar is in our blood. If we have high levels of sugar in our blood often this can cause us to develop insulin resistance which will eventually lead to type 2 diabetes. Something we would all like to avoid!
