In March of 2019, the journal Medicine (Baltimore) reported on an analysis of eight studies on eating ginger to aid in blood sugar control.

The participants who ate ginger, significantly lowered their HbA1c levels, while those who ate no ginger showed no change. From these results, the researchers concluded that consuming ginger helped reduce blood sugar levels over time. Although ginger does not provide much in the way of nutrients, it is low in calories and sugar.
