ACV has antibacterial and antifungal properties and that has been proven many times over the past few years. This is mostly because of its main ingredient – acetic acid.
But ACV also has some other properties that are even more beneficial if you drink it every night before going to bed.
These are just a few of them:
Lowers your blood sugar
Researchers have shown that consuming ACV can slow the emptying of your stomach and as a result of that, it can prevent large spikes in blood sugar, which can be dangerous. It has also been proven to increase insulin sensitivity, which can lower your blood sugar.
Drinking ACV before meals or right before bedtime will definitely benefit your blood sugar levels the most.
There was a study conveyed in which people with type 2 diabetes that were taking 2 tbsp of ACV before bedtime for 2 days in a row, reduced fasting blood sugar levels by up to 6%, which is something that not even drugs can do.
Supports weight loss
There are various evidence that indicate that ACV is surely going to help you in your weight loss journey.
There is a study in which obese adults drank a 17-ounce drink with 1 tbsp, 2 tbsp, or no vinegar daily. 12 weeks later, the vinegar groups weighed significantly less and had less abdominal fat than the control group that were not taking any vinegar with their drinks.
It’s thought that these weight loss benefits are related to the acetic acid in vinegar and they can significantly reduce fat storage, slow digestion, suppresses your appetite, increase fat burning, and delay the release of hunger hormones .
