Vinegar to dry and gain muscle?

Advice

Vinegar burns fat

Insulin can make you fat or can make you lean and muscular. It only depends on one factor: whether you are insulin sensitive or insulin resistant.. Without optimal insulin sensitivity, all of the protein you ingest is never fully delivered to your muscles. You will tend to easily store excess calories in fat cells. It is therefore necessary to optimize your insulin sensitivity.

Vinegar against insulin resistance

Here is a simple and effective trick to achieve this. Vinegar not only lessens the glucose impact and insulin response of a carbohydrate meal, but it also increases insulin sensitivity. Many studies have confirmed this, and one in particular reported that vinegar increases insulin sensitivity by 34%, up to one hour after the meal. This is due to acetic acid suppressing the activity of disaccharidases, enzymes that convert sugars called disaccharides (sucrose, lactose, maltose) into monosaccharides (glucose, galactose, fructose).

Another study selected 29 individuals and divided them into 3 groups: one group with type 2 diabetes, one with pre-diabetic signs, and the last perfectly healthy group. All took apple cider vinegar before their meal

Impressive results

All 3 groups improved their blood sugar levels

The diabetic group reduced their blood sugar levels by 25%

The group with pre-diabetic symptoms even lowered their sugar levels more significantly than the healthy group.

The pre-diabetic group benefited the most from vinegar consumption as their blood glucose levels were cut in half!
