My name is Christine Marquette and I'm a registered dietitian with the Austin Regional Clinic and I'm going to talk to you about how long before the effects of apple cider vinegar are shown. This is kind of a broad question and it really depends on what type of effect you are talking about. For example apple cider vinegar does tend to be very tart so that effect of feeling that tartness that sourness you might get that little look on your face that's going to be immediate as soon as you taste it. Somebody who is trying to use apple cider vinegar for weight loss, they are going to be waiting a long time because it doesn't necessarily help with weight loss. One of the studies that showed a modest effect took four weeks and there was only a two pound weight loss at the end of those four weeks. So again that's one study, it's about the only study that's shown very, very much effect for weight loss in particular and again it was a very modest effect. As far as diabetes goes, there's actually more research being done in that area and that's something that did show more of an immediate effect in some people. And some of the studies typically the dose that was used was two tablespoons immediately before a meal. And in these people they did see a reduction in their blood glucose values after their meal as compared to the days that they ate similar meal without the vinegar. So that was a fairly immediate reaction just how ever long it took them to actually eat their particular meal. They waited two hours after and then they tested their blood glucose and it was a few points lower. I believe the drop was between four and six percent in the groups that had been studied. So for diabetes glucose in some of the preliminary research it had shown an effect within a couple of hours. So again it kind of depends on what effect you are looking at and the other thing to keep in mind for somebody if you do have diabetes you don't want to go out and try to treat yourself just using apple cider vinegar. Remember these are very preliminary studies, there's only been a few done. There isn't enough actual hard evidence to go out and recommend using two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to actually treat your diabetes.
