Apple cider vinegar has been used over the centuries as a folk remedy for arthritis, detoxification, skin disorders and improved digestion. Modern science has reinforced some of these earlier traditional uses. In particular, some small studies have been conducted to show benefit in the areas of weightloss and blood glucose regulation.
Blood Glucose Regulation
The effect of vinegar on blood glucose levels is perhaps the best-researched and the most promising of apple cider vinegar's possible health benefits. Several studies have found that vinegar may help lower glucose levels. For instance, one 2007 study reported in Diabetes Care by Andrea M. White PHD and Carol S. Johnston PHD found that taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed in people with type 2 diabetes lowered glucose levels in the morning by 4%-6%.1 Weight loss
For thousands of years, vinegar has been used for weight loss. Vinegar has been shown to increase the feeling of satiety (fullness). A 2005 study outlined in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those who ate a piece of bread along with small amounts of white vinegar felt fuller and more satisfied than those who just ate the bread alone.2
Platinum Naturals' apple cider vinegar is made from a traditional fermentation method. This allows all of the naturally occurring trace elements and minerals to be present for added health benefits.
