Can ginger help you lose weight?

 In Nutrition

Could ginger play a role in your weight loss?

Studies support the idea that drinking a hot ginger added beverage after eating can make you feel full for longer and promote weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.


Ginger contains compounds called Gingerols and shogaols.

They both have antioxidant properties and satiety inducing effects on your body when ginger is consumed.

Gingerols have an anti-obesity effect in that they help food to digest faster.

They stabilise blood sugar levels which can prevent you from overeating.

Blood sugar levels are kept stable which can be key to losing weight and delaying the onset of hunger.
