Ginger may have a potential and profound effect in regulating the expression of metabolic syndrome, some scientists suggested.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions associated with the onset of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, including fat around the waist, elevated blood pressure, high triglycerides, elevated blood sugar, and low HDL cholesterol.
Dr. Christos Pitsavos, the cardio team at the University of Athens and Society for Biomedical Diabetes Research, wrote, "Several epidemiologic studies and some clinical trials, it has been suggested that people with the metabolic syndrome may benefit from intensive lifestyle modifications including dietary changes and adopting a physically more active lifestyle."
The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.
With an aim to find a natural ingredient or whole food for the treatment of metabolic syndrome, researchers assess the effects of ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) on type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and/or components of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) by searching the database of medical literature.
Ginger significantly reduced fasting blood glucose in T2DM patients (-21.24; 95% CI: -33.21, -9.26; P < 0.001) and three-month average plasma glucose concentration.
Moreover, in order to gain more evidence of ginger anti-metabolic syndrome effect, a study to determine the individual and concomitant effect of 6-weeks water-based exercise and oral ginger supplement on markers that have related to metabolic syndrome and systemic inflammation in obese women with breast neoplasms was conducted the University of Mazandaran.
During the experiment, the ginger supplementation and the water-based exercise have resulted in a reduction of hs-CRP, IL-10 (inflammation), insulin, glucose, insulin resistance, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), triglyceride (TG); but an increase in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and ratio HDL/LDL.
These results strongly suggested that ginger supplement plus exercise demonstrates a significant effect in reducing the fasting glucose, insulin resistance, inflammation, and lipid profile and balanced the ratio of high and low-density lipoproteins.
The findings suggested that obese breast neoplasms survivors metabolic syndrome and elevated inflammation were totally inhibited by the application of ginger supplement plus exercise training.
