Tips & Notes
The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics found that ginger supplementation may be beneficial for diabetics because it can control elevated blood sugar. When blood sugar elevates, digestive function is also affected, and ginger can balance out the digestive system.
Another study looked at how ginger effects the contractions of the stomach. When blood sugar levels are normal, stomach rhythms are controlled which in turn manages the rate at which the stomach empties. Ginger can help to reduce the disruptive activity of the stomach, which is beneficial since normal stomach functioning helps to maintain good blood sugar levels.
When ginger is consumed, it can inhibit specific metabolic functioning, which can be beneficial for diabetics. The International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition completed a study that found that ginger prevents enzymes related to type 2 diabetes from occurring.
