New Bev­er­ages May Offer Help for Weight Con­trol and Diabetes

Santa Bar­bara, CA-July 19, 2010 — For cen­turies, the virtues of Apple Cider Vine­gar have been pro­claimed for their leg­endary culi­nary and heal­ing prop­er­ties.  In 400 B.C., Hip­pocrates, the Father of Med­i­cine, used Apple Cider Vine­gar as a cleans­ing and heal­ing agent. While the tra­di­tional use of Apple Cider Vine­gar as a nat­ural rem­edy has been leg­endary for cen­turies, mod­ern med­ical research has just begun to con­firm some of its tra­di­tional med­i­c­i­nal uses.
Recent stud­ies have shown that when Apple Cider Vine­gar is taken with a meal, it is effec­tive in help­ing con­trol blood sugar and insulin lev­els by reduc­ing the Glycemic Index of foods. Stud­ies con­ducted at Ari­zona State Uni­ver­sity and pub­lished in the Amer­i­can Dia­betes Association’s jour­nal; Dia­betes Care (Jan­u­ary 2004),  sug­gest that Apple Cider Vine­gar used as a nat­ural rem­edy may pos­sess phys­i­o­log­i­cal effects sim­i­lar to com­monly pre­scribed dia­betes med­ica­tions.   “The results of this research illus­trates the  health ben­e­fits that Apple Cider Vine­gar can have for dia­bet­ics and for weight loss,” accord­ing to John Wes­t­er­dahl, PhD, RD, Direc­tor of Health Sci­ence for Bragg Live Food Products.

Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar has received much media atten­tion over the past sev­eral years. It was shown today, July 19, 2010, on a spe­cial edi­tion of The Oprah Win­frey Show – Dia­betes: America’s Silent Killer.  The tele­vi­sion show presents a dis­cus­sion with Oprah, fit­ness guru Bob Greene, and pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion physi­cian Mehmet Oz, M.D.  about the health ben­e­fits of Apple Cider Vine­gar in low­er­ing the Glycemic Index of a meal when added to foods, a sci­en­tific mea­sure of how fast carbohydrate-containing foods raise blood sugar lev­els. Low Glycemic Index foods and meals are asso­ci­ated with bet­ter blood sugar and insulin level con­trol for dia­bet­ics and weight con­trol. Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar was  the brand of Apple Cider Vine­gar shown and dis­cussed on the show that would be effec­tive for low­er­ing the Glycemic Index of foods.

Rec­og­niz­ing this research, Bragg Live Food Prod­ucts, Inc., a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer and dis­trib­u­tor of Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar has announced a new line of Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar All Nat­ural Drinks accord­ing to Bragg Pres­i­dent and CEO Dr. Patri­cia Bragg.  The ready-to-drink organic bev­er­age line is the lat­est addi­tion to the Bragg Live Food Prod­uct line of nat­ural and organic food prod­ucts. The new  prod­uct line builds on nearly a cen­tury of the company’s  her­itage as a  pro­ducer of Organic Apple Cider Vine­gar and pub­lisher of a national best­selling book on the health ben­e­fits of Apple Cider Vine­gar (Apple Cider Vine­gar – Mir­a­cle Health Sys­tem, Heath Sci­ence 2009) writ­ten by the company’s founder, Dr. Paul C. Bragg and his daugh­ter Patri­cia Bragg.
