Having a tablespoon of vinegar with your meal may reduce the spike in blood sugar that occurs after eating carbohydrate-rich food.
As a result, the risk of developing pre-diabetes may be reduced, which is good news for those of us with PCOS, who are vulnerable to developing diabetes. If neglected, reversible pre-diabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes, which is irreversible in most cases and may require daily injections of insulin.
The sugar surge from high carbs is a particular problem for people who don’t clear glucose effectively because the resulting excess glucose in the blood damages tissue. A steep rise in glucose also triggers an equally rapid drop in glucose levels, which, in turn, stokes appetite and weight gain.
The acid in vinegar may reduce blood sugar spike by inhibiting the digestion of starch, which is then rendered into something like fiber.
An easy and tasty way to increase your vinegar intake is to drizzle it on salads.
