Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a healthy product for people with diabetes. A study conducted at Arizona State University Department of Nutrition headed by Carol Johnson, Ph.D., R.D. and her colleagues showed that when Apple Cider Vinegar is taken with a meal, it is effective in helping improve blood glucose and insulin levels by reducing the Glycemic Index of foods. This research was published in Diabetes Care,* the official journal of the American Diabetes Association. This research confirms the health benefits that Apple Cider Vinegar can have for diabetics and for weight loss. The authors of the study concluded, “These data indicate that vinegar can significantly improve postprandial insulin sensitivity in insulin-resistant subjects … thus, vinegar may create physiological effects similar to acarbose or metformin (two leading diabetic medications).”
