Pickle Juice to Control Blood Sugar

I read in a magazine that taking 2 oz. of apple cider vinegar before meals helps control your blood sugar. Tried it - YUCK! But I did try sugar free (made with Splenda) pickle juice from Vlasic. This has worked like a charm. I have my sugar under control and it has helped me lose weight and works great when I have heartburn. I pour about 2 oz. in a shot glass and drink it down. Cheers!

It isn't the pickle juice that is controlling your blood sugar. It is the absence of sugar. Without the pickle juice your blood sugar will stay the same as long as you do not add sugar.

So you still take the apple cider vinegar plus the pickle juice

Not only is the absence of sugar ...
Its the absence of any carbohydrates
like breads, pastas. rices and potatoes

The writer did not give enough information to draw this conclusion.

pickle juice is mostly vinegar, that is why it lowers your blood sugar, but I would just eat a mini dill pickle and drink water could just drink vinegar in water and get the same thing.

I know I'm 10 years late but this is not true for everyone. sounds perfect but I am "prediabetic" and just ditching most of the sugar/ carbs in my diet and exercising is not working by itself.


I have to use vinegar and ashwaganda and all kinds of timing and combining of foods etc.

Do be careful....pickle juice along with most brining mixtures is very high in salt.

Yes, I've tried this, it worked for a bit, then started making me throw up. You need to be aware, that if this helps you, in the short term, then it is the acid in the vinegar that is helping to lower blood glucose. This means that your stomach does not produce enough hydrochloric acid (HCl).


Another thing, vinegar, acetic acid, is 1 of the waste acids our body ends up with after biological activity & these types of acids have to b filtered out by the kidneys. It adds to the over-all load of wastes acids. Our body don't like these floating around & can end up storing them in not so nice places, like joints & tissues. This can cause a great deal of pain & eventually damage. They can make you sick, give you headaches, migraines & the list could go on forever.

When our stomachs don't produce enough HCl, any acid (in this case acetic acid) will be borrowed by the stomach to do what it needs done. This only recycles those nasty acids & pollutes your body. Eventually the load outstrips the body' ability to detox & other nasty things happen.


HCl is the only inorganic acid our bodies make. It is clean & does many wonderful things for us. It also helps to detox our bodies.

Get the real thing or find out how to increase your own output of it. It is a vital element on many fronts.

Don't bother with the juice, just eat a dill pickle wedge after your meal, It works just as well.

After a meal? I thought the vinegar must be eaten first?
