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.

indegestion

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%.

 

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student. Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits. He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry. He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions. His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics. He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today. As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations. Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes. Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality. Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you amazon.com/author/billhaberman
