Yet another benefit of ginger has been revealed and this time it's for long-term diabetes patients. It has been found through a recent study that ginger is quite effective managing blood sugar level of a person, who has been suffering from long term diabetes.
The study was taken out by a group of researchers from the Sydney's Faculty of Pharmacy. The study being taken out by Colin Duke and Van Tran has found ginger to be capable enough to raise the level of glucose to such an extent that it was able to reach ay muscle cells and that too without the help of insulin.
"This assists in the management of high levels of blood sugar that create complications for long-term diabetic patients, and may allow cells to operate independently of insulin", said study researchers.
The study has found that gingerols, one of main components of the ginger, was responsible for raising the level of blood sugar. However, such thing was not possible during normal conditions and insulin gets vital to provide glucose to body parts. The ginger being used in the experiment was taken from Buderim Ginger, but reason for taking specific form of ginger has not been revealed yet.
