If you have spiking sugar levels or are diagnosed with diabetes, apple cider vinegar is the drink for your mornings. Studies have shown apple cider vinegar helps balance blood sugar levels, and therefore, fights diabetes. In one study, individuals with type 2 diabetes took two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed without taking insulin. In the morning, the glucose levels of these participants were significantly lower. In another study, it was found insulin-resistant patients who drank apple cider vinegar before eating a food high in sugars had a lower blood sugar level afterward. This antiglycemic effect of apple cider vinegar can also increase energy levels and reduce the effects of sugar on your body.
