Dr Oz on White Vinegar Reduces Blood Sugar
Dr. Oz said taking white vinegar before a meal can help keep blood sugar stable.
White Vinegar Dosage
Take 1 tsp of white vinegar before a meal.
What is White Vinegar?
Vinegar is a product of fermentation, a process in which sugars in food are digested by bacteria and yeast. In the first stage of fermentation, sugars are turned into alcohol. Then, in the second stage, the alcohol ferments into vinegar.
Vinegar literally means “sour wine.” While vinegar can be made from all sorts of things — like vegetables and grains — white vinegar comes from the pulp of fruits, like apples.
In a 2005 study, researchers wanted to test white vinegar’s effect on blood sugar spikes after study subjects ate white bread. What they found was this: The subjects who drank white vinegar while eating white bread reduced postprandial (after-meal) responses of blood sugar and insulin.
Where to Buy White Vinegar?
