(NaturalNews) A pilot study on the effect that apple cider vinegar (ACV) has on gastric emptying rate revealed glycemic control problems with type 1 diabetics, but it is otherwise effective in reducing levels of postprandial glucose and insulin among healthy people. However, Swedish researchers Joanna Hiebowicz, Gassan Darwiche, and Ola Biorgell, who were involved in the pilot study, did not regard the findings as a setback in either diabetes research or the quest for more therapeutic benefits from apple cider vinegar.

Media even reported heightened public interest in the numerous health benefits of ACV owing to promising results from other similar studies. This came about as a team of five scientists offered experimental evidence that ACV provided satisfactory lipid profile among both normal and diabetes-induced rat subjects. Lead researcher Anahita Mansouri is optimistic that their findings will contribute to the global efforts to manage complications arising from diabetes in the near future.

A Flashback to 400 BC Medicine

ACV practically vanished into oblivion when vinegar was mass-produced, refined and subjected to pasteurization and distillation processes. However, now that interest in this vinegar is renewed, the scientific and medical communities have their hopes high that ACV has not lost its vaunted healing abilities after being frozen in grandma's cellar for centuries. After all, it was the father of medicine himself, Hippocrates, who endorsed ACV as a healing elixir and cleansing agent in 400 BC.

The good old ACV was used by Hippocrates both as an antibiotic and antiseptic to treat his patients. This was long before Alexander Fleming and Joseph Lister entered the scene and patented their rediscovered products from mold and tar, respectively. Through the years, however, the use of ACV was propagated through folk medicine and doctors who believe in its therapeutic efficacy.

Nutritional Composition and Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

The following nutrients are found in ACV in trace amounts: calcium, copper, fluorine, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silicon and sulfur. There are also claims that ACV contains some vitamins. Here is a partial list of the numerous health benefits of apple cider vinegar:
  • Aids in both weight loss and weight gain
  • Combats calluses, corns and warts
  • Destroys bacteria, germs, mold and viruses
  • Detoxifies cells and organs from deleterious bodily waste products
  • Enhances insulin sensitivity and metabolism
  • Fights infection and osteoporosis
  • Helps block carbohydrates
  • Prevents food poisoning
  • Promotes digestion
  • Reduces cholesterol levels
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Relieves arthritis pain, chronic fatigue, headache, laryngitis, sore throat, etc.
  • Restores vitality to dry and damaged skin from sunburn and other skin problems

An Apple a Day

Wrapping it up, a natural remedy like apple cider vinegar should be better than medications made from synthetic chemicals. Indeed, with the health benefits of ACV, an apple each day can keep the doctor away. Additionally, it pays to remember not to sway away from the cider to keep your health and wellness in check.
