The first usage of vinegar (or even ‘sour vine’) dates seven thousand years back from the modern days and is connected to the ancient people of Babylonia. The Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, was the first one who used apple cider vinegar (or just cider vinegar), and he found it useful for a lot of medical purposes, such as treating wounded people and using it as a remedy for a strong cough.
Today’s scientists say that apple cider vinegar is very beneficial in terms of speeding up your weight loss process, and it can improve your blood sugar regulation as well. How about that?
The process of producing apple cider vinegar is quite simple, as its fermentation process is made up of two segments; first of all, bacteria and yeast break down sugar into alcohol, and after that, acetobacterium oxidate alcohol into acetic acid, and that can take more time to complete. The acetic acid then makes the apple acid vinegar sour and bitter at the same time by distinguishing it, after which is leaves a cloudy substance at the bottom (also called ‘the mother’). The mother contains a lot of enzymes, and it represents the fermenting portion of the apple.
When it comes to blood sugar control, the best way to use apple cider vinegar is to add it to your salad as a dressing, but you can also take a glass of it before having a high caloric meal. Many researches gave spectacular results in terms of apple cider vinegar fighting type 2 diabetes, as it blocks metformin from entering your blood cells. The metformin is a drug used by those who suffer from diabetes, and it has a lot of negative side effects. It’s also connected to heart issues and liver diseases.
