Eating too Many Carbs - A Simple Yet Effective Way To Normalize Blood Sugar & Insulin Spikes After Eating a High Carbohyrdrate Meal

This information is offered as a solution for those times when a diabetic, because of social reasons, a party, or special occasion, will be eating more carbohydrates than would normally be eaten.

A study done in Sweden in 2001 showed that blood sugar spikes were held in check when pickles preserved in vinegar were consumed immediately after a high-carbohydrate breakfast. Earlier Swedish research indicated that vinegar might help control blood sugar spikes.

In his book The Diabetes Improvement Program, Patrick Quillin, Ph.D., states the following:

“Real vinegar has not been filtered or pasteurized, and is rich in organic acids, pectin (soluble fiber), and acetic acid, all of which help to slow down the emptying of the stomach. This simple ‘detour’ for the digestion of food creates a slowdown in dumping glucose into the bloodstream. A meal with 2 tablespoons of vinegar can slow gastric emptying rate by 30% and drop blood glucose peaks by 30%.”

“Recipes for salad dressing with flax oil and vinegar not only taste great but can dramatically improve overall health by lowering rises in blood glucose. Red wine vinegar works best at this.”

As a result of the earlier research, Carol S. Johnston, Ph.D., from the Department of Nutrition at Arizona State University, created a study to put vinegar to the test on three groups of subjects: ten type 2 diabetics, 11 subjects who showed symptoms of pre-diabetic insulin resistance, and eight subjects with normal insulin sensitivity. None of the subjects were taking any diabetes medications.

Subjects were randomly assigned to consume the apple cider vinegar or a placebo drink. Two minutes later, each subject ate a meal consisting of a white bagel with butter and a glass of orange juice, containing approximately 90 grams of total carbohydrates. Blood samples were collected before the meal, and 30 minutes and 60 minutes after the meal.

Dr. Johnston and her team reported several significant results:

And here's the most surprising result: Pre-diabetic subjects (insulin resistant) who drank vinegar actually had lower blood glucose levels than subjects with normal insulin sensitivity who also drank vinegar.

Dr. Johnston notes that vinegar dietary supplements may not be useful for managing glucose and insulin spikes associated with meals as they don't contain acetic acid [ acetic acid: a colorless acid with a pungent odor that is the main component of vinegar ] — the key ingredient she feels is responsible for vinegar's effectiveness.

Apple cider vinegar is another vinegar that works well. It is recommended that the typical apple cider vinegar product carried by large grocery chains carry be avoided. Instead, look for raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar, usually available at many health food stores.

To make a quantity of your own salad dressing just mix one part oil (or water) to two parts vinegar. Condiments such as garlic and/or onion powder, salt and pepper, should be added to taste.

Three tablespoons of this type of salad dressing will supply you with the two tablespoons of vinegar needed for the above results.

 

 

Diabetics Reversing Diabetes - I Was Struggling to Keep the Diabetes Under Control

If you are diabetic or know someone who is diabetic, this information is something you want to read.

Stories about the harmful effects of diabetic oral drugs like Avandia are in the news on a regular basis. The recent studies on Avandia showed that there was a higher chance of heart attack when taking it.

Drugs like this cover up symptoms -- they don't really address the cause of the problem. 

The WSN Diabetic Pack addresses the cause of the diabetic condition by supplying the body with the nutrition it needs to be able to repair itself. 

Here is what some of our customers have to say about using it:

******************************

"Before I started taking the Diabetic Pack my blood sugar was over 500. I've been on the Diabetic Pack for three weeks and I told myself that I would be following their instructions to a “T” for a month. Now I'm at 160 which is still high for me, but it is working. I would definitely recommend the Diabetic Pack."

From David Eggett in Utah

******************************

"I have been very successful with using the Diabetic Pack. It comes with good instructions to get good results.

"I’ve done so well, because I stuck very much to their guidelines. The carb counter was the first thing I printed out from their website and I have done a lot of changes to my diet. In no time, I got my ideal weight and my glucose level came down. I'm now at 115 lbs and this morning my blood sugar reading was 105.

"I exercised every day by walking 5 kilometers or more a day. I found out by doing too much exercise, my glucose level went up. Soaking in a bit of sunshine is for me a must.

"My blood-pressure is now better than normal. So what I can do, every one else can do too."

Ilse Wruck in Australia

******************************

"I am writing this to let anyone who's been struggling to keep their diabetes under control to look no further. This product truly worked for me. I was given three months with the addition of more medication to bring it under control. 

"I looked on-line and ordered the WSN Diabetic Pack. I did not take the additional meds prescribed. Instead I gave your product a try. 

"When I woke up I took my blood reading and was amazed to see it at 99-100 in the morning. When I used to wake with 199 or higher. When I went for my blood work the doctor was amazed at my results. My A1c used to be 9.8, it read 6.0. I want to thank you for this wonderful product and your encouragement.”

Madeline Fiore in New York
