Apple Cinder Vinegar's Benefits on Glucose Level - Questionable?
The antiglycemic effects of vinegar have been known for more than a century and
have been demonstrated in animal as well as human studies. Although the exact
mechanism of vinegar action is not known, several possibilities have been proposed
including suppression of disaccharidase activity, delayed gastric emptying,
enhanced glucose uptake in the periphery and conversion to glycogen, and
increased satiety. Salbe AD and co-workers from Kronos Longevity Research
Institute, Phoenix, AZ, found vinegar does not act to decrease glycemia by
interference with enteral carbohydrate absorption in a study of 5 subjects. [Nutr Res.

Apple Cinder Vinegar's Potential Benefits on Lipid Profile
Shishehbor F and co-workers at Ahvaz Jundishapour University of Medical Sciences
found apple cider vinegar attenuates lipid profile in normal and diabetic rats. Apple
cider vinegar also reduced serum triglyceride (TG) levels (p<0.005) and increased
HDL-c (p<0.005) in diabetic animals. [Pak J Biol Sci. 2008 Dec 1;11(23):2634-8.]

Apple Cinder Vinegar's Potential Unwanted Side Effects
In a study of 10 patients with type 1 diabetes and diabetic gastroparesis, vinegar
affects patients by reducing the gastric emptying rate even further, and this might be
a disadvantage regarding to their glycaemic control. [BMC Gastroenterol. 2007 Dec
20;7:46.]

Esophageal injury by apple cider vinegar tablets have been reported. [J Am Diet
Assoc. 2005 Jul;105(7):1141-4.]
