You just got an excuse for your morning joe. A new study from the University of California, Los Angeles has found that drinking coffee can decrease your risk of developing type 2 Diabetes. According to another study, decaf can help too and lower your risk by 22%.
Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV is an amazing natural remedy that you should keep at home for so many reasons. Drinking it before meals and at bedtime can lower your post-meal glucose by 34% and reduce your fasting blood glucose in the morning.
