Apple Cider Vinegar Before Meals for Diabetics
Apple cider vinegar should be taken before meals
: How much apple cider vinegar should be taken before meals and how long before meal?
: Hi there,
It is very good that you have found this amazing remedy to control your blood glucose level. At the same time, it is very easy to use it: only a two-step thing:)1.
Regarding the time
of taking apple cider vinegar, it is recommended to take it 2-5 minutes before meal or even during the meal.
The best option is to take it before meal; however if you have forgotten to take it, there’s no problem to take it during the meal, but the effect is not going to be so great.2.
The other rule is to pay attention to the dose
you are taking. So, if you are diabetic, you have to take exactly 20 grams or 2tbsp of apple cider vinegar.
In case you are a pre-diabetic, you have to take not more than 10 grams.
It is important for you to follow the second rule very strictly, because the excessive amount of apple cider vinegar, along with your blood glucose lowering medications, can lead to hypoglycemia and this is something we don’t want to happen.
Something, which will make you feel more comfortable is to take the
apple cider vinegar with orange juice or with water, because of its unpleasant taste.
As apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid with a very unpleasant taste, you can use orange juice or water or other beverages to eliminate it. In addition, I want to inform you that the apple cider vinegar has side effects. These side effects are observed as a result of long-term and inappropriate usage of apple cider vinegar.
Some of them are low potassium level and osteoporosis. In purpose to avoid them, check your potassium level from time to time and if there is something wrong with it stop using the apple cider vinegar for a while.
By stopping the usage of apple cider vinegar about 1 week every month, you can prevent the development of those undesirably conditions.
If during this week, your blood glucose will get high, you can compensate them with diet and exercises until the end of the week.
Hope it helped!
Is it only cider vinegar that works or can I take any kind including balsamic vinegar of modene?
