Dr Oz: Fiber & Vinegar Anti-Diabetes Drink
Alexandria, an audience member, came to the stage to help Dr Oz. Alexandria lost 30 lbs, however, diabetes runs in her family. She takes necessary precautions by eating right and exercising.
1. How Do You Keep Blood Sugar From Spiking?
a. Fiber vinegar cocktails
b. Lemonade with lavender
Answer: a. Fiber and vinegar cocktail is the best anti-diabetes drink. Dr Oz demonstrated this point with the use of marbles (representing sugar) and 2 beakers filled with a liquid. The first beaker contained the lemonade with lavender mixture; the second, fiber and vinegar. Dr Oz dropped the first marble (sugar) into the lemonade and lavender beaker. Immediately, the marble (sugar) fell to the bottom. Dr Oz dropped the second marble into the beaker filled with the fiber and vinegar mixture. The fiber slowed down the marble’s (sugar) ability to pass through, which indicated that with this mixture, sugar will not be absorbed as readily.
How to make:
8 oz water
4 tsp vinegar
1 tsp of psyllium fiber
Mix together and drink before dinner. Alexandria tasted the concoction and stated it tasted like Tang. Sounds good to me!

Morning is also when most heart attacks are likely happen. By taking the pill the night before, your blood will be thinned out and will help your blood flow much faster.
Dr Oz: White Fruits Prevent Strokes
Dr Oz called up an audience member who stated that strokes run in her family. Her family talks about how to keep risks down since her aunt had a stroke and then a subsequent heart attack.
4. Which Quick Fix is Best for a Stroke?
a. White fruits
b. Purple fruits
Answer: White Fruits are best. Studies have shown that the white flesh seems to protect against a stroke, so go for foods such as cauliflower, pears an , bananas. White fruits also help bring down the blood pressure and cholesterol level as well as reduce the risk of a stroke.
To demonstrate this, Dr Oz used an animation of the heart pumping blood through the vessels . The blood passes through the vessels and heads toward the brain. When the vessels pop, it causes swelling and can be harmful to the brain. It’s like someone punched the brain.
