Science Says We Should Be Consuming Way More Vinegar
It's time to step up your balsamic vinegar game stat. Not the worst charge, right? A recent article is bringing the tart condiment to the forefront of health-conscious eating.
According to Mindbodygreen, the benefits are manifold. In one study involving both diabetic and nondiabetic individuals, adding two teaspoons of vinegar to any meal was found to improve blood sugar control, "effectively blunting the blood sugar spike after a meal by about 20 percent." In another, people with type 2 diabetics were advised to consume two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar at bedtime. Come morning, their blood sugar levels were better than when they did not consume the vinegar. Other benefits include healthier blood pressure levels, improved artery functions, and even lower body fat!
If a spoonful of vinegar puts you off, consider adding it to salads, potato salads, or rice dishes. Infused vinegars (there are so many to choose from) should make the task of incorporating more of the ingredient into your diet even easier.
