    RE: Can Apple Cider Vinegar Lower Blood Sugar?

    I've been drinking apple cider vinegar for many, many years...Since your body's immune system is headquartered in the G.I. tract, it's important to maintain good digestion, daily. People with digestive issues (ibs, gastric reflux, colitis, celiacs and chrohn's, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis) tend to have diabetes, eventually. As you improve your digestion (drink more water, exercise, fruits/veggies, fermented foods, more sleep, apple cider vinegar), you will reduce inflammation in the gut and, in turn, use L E S S insulin. The less insulin your body requires, the greater your body's "sensitivity" to insulin. Stool quality and frequency is a wonderful "indicator" of good digestion and, therefore, better health.

    Again, fixating on "blood sugar" control does nothing for Type 2 because high blood sugar is just a reaction (aka "symptom") to problem(s), elsewhere.

    Conversely, people who address/correct "root cause(s)" of high blood sugar are the ones who eventually reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
