Notes for this study:
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 114 non-diabetic participants were assigned to 30 ml of apple cider vinegar or placebo daily for 8 weeks. The primary outcome was HDL-C, and the apple cider vinegar group say a small increase while the placebo group saw a small decrease. Neither change was statistically significant compared with baseline. There were no other statistically significant effects besides a reduction in HS-CRP in the placebo group.
