Research published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism in January 2010 showed that two teaspoons of vinegar effectively reduced postprandial glucose (after meal blood sugar). The effect was most pronounced when vinegar was taken with the meal. The acetic acid in vinegar seemed to inhibit the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, including amylase, sucrase, maltase, and lactase, which caused some sugars and starches to temporarily pass through the intestines without being digested, and so they had less impact on blood glucose levels. Some people have greater responses than others to vinegar, but even if vinegar doesn't help you, it cannot hurt. Research in rats published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in June 2011 suggested that apple cider vinegar can help control triglycerides and cholesterol, but an effective dose was not given. - Ask Mary for
