8. Ginger May Reduce Cholesterol Levels
Increased levels of lipoproteins are associated with a higher chance of having a heart-related disease.
The kind of food you consume influences your LDL level.
In a study that took 45 days, 85 persons who had high cholesterol, 3g of powdered ginger caused a great decrease in many cholesterol markers.
This is backed by a particular study for hypothyroid rats in which ginger extract reduced LDL cholesterol by the same extent as atorvastatin, a drug for reducing cholesterol.
The two studies indicated reductions in blood triglycerides and total cholesterol.
