It's time to start adding ginger into your diet on a daily basis! Ginger root plays a key role in weight loss by reducing your body's production of insulin, the hormone responsible for raising blood sugar levels, according to the European Journal of Nutrition. The result: A slimmer waist line in just 12 weeks. You can use both dried and fresh ginger based on your personal preference.
According to the studies of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), ginger helps to stimulate even the slowest digestive systems by helping to stimulate the production of stomach acids. The key, however, to ginger's pound-shedding power is that ginger helps you feel fuller and helps burn fat rather than just helping you lose water weight.
An added bonus is that ginger is also a great disease preventative and treatment."Ginger has been used for thousands of years for the treatment of numerous ailments, such as colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension", according to NCBI.
