According to researchers Ginger might help protect the nerves of a person who suffers
from diabetes as well as lower their fat levels. Another important way ginger could help
diabetics is by significantly reducing the levels of serum glucose, as well as proteinuria,
thirst and enuresis. These were the conclusions they arrived as a result of testing rats that
were chemically induced with diabetes. The rats that showed these improvements were
given 500 mg of raw ginger. In addition, ginger can help thin the blood, lower blood
pressure, increase circulation and lower cholesterol.
