5. Blood Sugars and Heart Disease

This is a new area of research.  Ginger may have some anti-diabetic supplement possibilities.

blood sugar

In a 2015 study using 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, it was discovered that using 2 grams of ginger powder daily lowered the participants fasting blood sugar by 12%.


It was seen to improve HbA1c, which is a marker for long-term blood sugar levels.  The result was a 10% reduction over a period of 12 weeks.


There was further observed a 28% reduction in the ApoB/ApoA-I ratio, and a 23% reduction in markers for oxidized lipoproteins. These are known risk factors for developing heart disease.


This was just one small study. These findings are very interesting, but a larger study is needed. But what is the harm in taking ginger now.


6. Chronic Indigestion – Dyspepsia

Chronic indigestion (dyspepsia) is a recurring pain or discomfort in the upper stomach.


Most scientists believe that slow emptying of the stomach is a cause of indigestion.  Ginger has the ability to speed up emptying of the stomach in people with this condition.

In one study using soup, ginger reduced stomach emptying time some 16 to 12 minutes.  In another study with 24 healthy individuals, 1.2 grams of ginger powder taken before a meal was found to accelerate emptying of the stomach by 50%.
