Smile Apple Cider Vinegar - improves insulin sensitivity

http://care.diabetesjournals.org/cgi.../full/27/1/281

I knew it helped with metabolism and stimulating stomach acid.
But here is an article discussing the benefits of increasing insulin sensitivity.

I am going to add it to my dinner since that meal is my highest in carbohydrates aside from breakfast. I had it last night for the first time, whooo! It's strong, that would wake you up if you took it in the morning. Quite a kick.

I had the apple cider vinegar with my pasta/meatballs last night and didn't feel as sluggish as normal, I am wondering if it is placebo effect or if it was really just working well to help my meal digest and my blood sugar to be stable.

I live on it. Most people have diet sodas or sugar free sweet drinks to satisfy their hunger; I have this. If you put splenda in it it tastes amazing; plus it appears it might help health, satiety and leanness. I like it.

What is your dosage and timing like?
I used 1 teaspoon prior to my dinner.

I have about a tablespoon actually. I have it with meals, 2-3 times a day.

Wow that is hardcore, I had some trouble with the teaspoon, I can't imagine 3 times as much! Maybe I will work my way up to it.

I did that too, and it feels like swallowing aqua regia... but my question is: is it the acidity that helps, or some substance in it? I.e. is it still effective when it is diluted?
