We all know that a cough and a runny nose can be a warning that a cold is coming, and a rash shows that you have an allergy. But, UNFORTUNATELY, some disorders sneak up on us without warning. And, ladies and gentlemen, diabetes is one of them! There’s more to contracting diabetes than a high-sugar, high-fat diet and a low-exercise lifestyle. According to the experts, if you’re diagnosed with prediabetes, changing your lifestyle can push back against the disease.
Type 2 diabetes is essentially your body being insulin resistant. Insulin is produced by your pancreas to let cells use carbs and sugars as energy. Having a slow metabolism, burning fat slowly, and having high blood pressure can lead to an unhealthy immune system which could advance the onset of type 2 diabetes.
But, you shouldn’t be worried, because there’s a simple two-ingredient drink that will help you cleanse your body of toxins, speed up your metabolism, burn fat and lower blood pressure. It also helps directly fight diabetes. And, the best thing about this remedy is that you just need 2 simple ingredients – ACV and cinnamon.
- Why ACV?!
The experts claim that ACV can help both type 1 and type 2 diabetics with blood glucose control. A recent study has revealed that vinegar helps increase insulin sensitivity. The study followed subjects who drank 40 grams of ACV before meals; their post-meal glucose levels were 34% lower compared to when they didn’t drink the vinegar.
The MILLION-DOLLAR question – why isn’t vinegar a more widely known diabetes treatment? Well, that’s easy to answer – because no one makes big money from selling vinegar. There are no vinegar pushers. No vinegar reps. Vinegar doesn’t make anyone enough money to even be widely talked-about in the diabetes community.
- Why CINNAMON?!
Cinnamon was found to increase the use of glucose in the body, and decrease risk factors associated with diabetes. Cinnamon will also help fight various cardiovascular diseases by lowering bad cholesterols. Cinnamon extracts have been found to increase glucose uptake and glycogen (a glucose storage system made in the liver) synthesis. Because of what cinnamon and apple cider vinegar can do on their own, some people have decided to put them together in one glass.
The Diabetes Detox Drink – RECIPE:
Ladies and gentlemen, don’t get us wrong! This drink won’t cure you of diabetes, but it will help your body become more accepting of insulin, helping to stabilize your blood sugars. It will also help with heart health and help to lower high blood pressure. As we said, it will speed up your metabolism, burn extra fat and make your body more insulin receptive.
You’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
- 1 tablespoon Raw Honey
- One glass (12-16 oz.) Water
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend well. Drink before meals, and you won’t feel bogged down by sugar after eating.
