Balsamic Vinegar and Diabetes

December 1, 2021

Balsamic offers a delicious and rich taste of acidic vinegar. But did you know that balsamic vinegar could be effective in lowering blood glucose levels in Type 2 diabetes? 

Balsamic is great for more than just dressings. In fact, it has been used as a natural medicine throughout time as a powerful antimicrobial, a probiotic, to help suppress appetite, lower cholesterol, and stabilize blood pressure. Studies have shown that after consuming balsamic vinegar, people with insulin resistance experienced a blood sugar plateau for up to five hours. Adding balsamic to your diet could help you to avoid blood sugar spikes that happen after eating.

It should be noted that this is not a replacement for your diabetic treatment plan, but it may be a great idea to incorporate more balsamic into your diet for added health benefits and delicious flavor. A spoonful of balsamic before your meals can help to prevent sugar spikes. Just be sure to keep your consumption in moderation and check with your doctor or nutritionist.
