DESCRIPTION: The consumption of vinegar with meals was used as a folk remedy for diabetes before drugs came along, but it wasn’t put to the test until recently.

Are these videos chock full of info or what? This is a consequence of everyone’s kind support (, enabling me to hire more than a dozen researchers to help me plow through the literature. I’m embarrassed to even look at some of the videos I did years ago. They’re so one-dimensional. I’m so grateful so many of you were able to see the potential and help become what it is today. Onward and upward!

What’s that about belly fat being reduced? You must have missed the first video in this vinegar series, Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help with Weight Loss? (

I then covered Vinegar and Artery Function ( and will end with Optimal Vinegar Dose ( and Vinegar Mechanisms and Side Effects (

Did I say reverse diabetes? Reverse heart disease? See, for example, Diabetes Reversal: Is it the Calories or the Food? ( and Evidence-Based Medicine or Evidence-Biased? (

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at and he’ll try to answer it!

A couple of months ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, after my morning blood sugar levels has been reading 18 mmol/l during my self-monitoring at home. Now my blood sugar levels are consistently 8 mmol/l. A great help from this material [Go Here=== ]. I changed my diet and went on the Diet-friendly plan, and do my exercises. This has been a good source of information for me. Great!

I have not been monitoring my glucose continuously. It has been hard for me doing that. But this product has come very handy [Go Here=== ]. This method has helped me have a better control of my glucose level. I have been having a non-steady reading of my glucose level. I so much love this report. It is recommendable to everyone.

Amazing channel, the popularity of this channel must increase – for the sake of humanity. Very educational.
Might I request that you post the papers you mention in each video, for those of us who are curious?

So what is the recommendation? Is all vinegar the same? How much do you take? When do you take it? Before you eat, during the meal, or after the meal. How many times a day? Just with certain meals?

Doc Jringo says:

Dr Greger you are literally a life safer. a huge Ave to you!

Does the benefit of vinegar survive the cooking process? For those of us who don't like salad, but think that beans cooked w/ a tablespoon of vinegar and spices are tasty?

Elle W. says:

Can you do a video on how to take 2 tbsp of of vinegar a day without it tasting so horrible? Because its cool to know its so good for you, but its so yucky 🙁

Matt Wennerstrom says:

How long does Apple Cider Vinegar stay in the system to have these effects? If you take your vinegar in the morning, will this cover most of the meals in a day? Or do I have to take the vinegar right after I eat? Just wondering the time lapse.

Anon Ymous says:

So… is it vinegar week and I just didn't get the memo?

Jazmin Bal says:

Is there a study about the benefits or negative effects of consuming molasses?


Nothing works! Everything is bad for everybody!?

I know Dr Gregor has better things to do than read youtube comments, but please make more videos on preventing blood sugar spikes. I am a long term vegan who is overweight, diagnosed with diabetes. I spike my sugars to 300 when i eat a decent meal and my triglycerides are through the roof. I work a total sedentary job.
I just chugged a tall glass of apple cider vinegar.

Pace Kristie says:

Is it possible to do a video about Hirsutism/ hormone imbalance on women? What are the best foods on vegan life-style to reduce this problem? – Thankyou

John SavageV says:

Love this free daily education, Professor G, please never stop making them.

Dr Greger you mentioned how spikes in blood sugar can increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. One should also consider how the sugar in the blood stream feeds the bacteria from the mouth which has lodged in the arterial wall. Back in 2005, scientists found the same plaque producing bacteria which is commonly found in the mouth living quite well in the arterial wall of people with carotid artery disease and coronary artery disease. What they discovered is that anyone with gingivitis will eventually get this bacteria into their arterial walls. Once it finds a nice home in your arterial wall, it will begin to secrete plaque into your artery just like it does around the base of your teeth. This results in hardening of the arteries which results in high blood pressure, and which can eventually result in a stroke or heart attack. So, when you spike the circulatory system with sugar……you are feeding this bacteria…..and it will grow at an exponential rate causing more inflammation, more obstruction, and more calcification…..and result in a stroke or a heart attack. This is one of many reasons why sugar is bad for you. You can read about this research on the link below:

To deal with this problem there are many things that a person has to do simultaneously such as becoming a "real" vegan eating whole plant based food diets, fasting, utilizing the spice tumeric, utilizing the supplement serrapeptase, and utilizing high doses of vitamin C as discussed by people like Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Thomas E. Levy in his book: "Curing The Incurable". You can watch videos on YouTube of Dr. Pauling discussing how large doses of vitamin C improves heart disease, and you can watch videos of Dr. Thomas Levy also lecturing on the benefits of high doses of vitamin C and lyposomal vitamin C.
