Free Public Health: An Unquestionable Achievement of Cuba
Ginger, the common spice and ancient Asian remedy, could have the power to help manage the high levels of blood sugar which create complications for long-term diabetic patients, a University of Sydney study reports.
The study, published in the prestigious natural product journal Planta Medica, reveals the potential power of ginger to control blood glucose by using muscle cells.
Professor of pharmaceutical chemistry Basil Roufogalis who led the research says ginger extracts obtained from Buderim Ginger were able to increase the uptake of glucose into muscle cells independently of insulin.
