Benefits of Using Low Carb Paleo Dessert Recipes

In this Ginger Snap Coconut Cookie recipe, you’ll actually get some medicinal benefits from the ginger ingredient if you eat quite a few of them.

One of the primary effects of ginger is its anti-inflammatory effects.  Inflammation rages through the body because of the prostaglandin system. When certain prostaglandins are created in the body, lots of inflammation will be seen. But ginger inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins that are connected with the inflammation system.

There is another way that inflammation can rage in the body: when certain cytokines are synthesized in high amounts. Some of those cytokines are called IL-1 (interleukin-1), TNF-alpha, and IL-8 (interleukin-8).

Ginger inhibits the synthesis of these three cytokines, and that’s part of the mechanism that this spice is so effective at busting inflammation.

But there’s more to how ginger works in the body. Did you know it also inhibits allergy reactions?

When ginger’s anti-inflammatory actions are working in the body, some people notice that their arthritis symptoms are a lot better. They don’t feel so much pain in their joints. The medicinal constituent called shogaol found in ginger is what is working to give them this effect. It’s a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Now it’s time to try one of the best low carb Paleo dessert recipes in our collection.

Cookies and Ice Cream Go Together

Ever want to do ice cream calculations? Here are two that I love:

  1. Two gallons of ice cream per day equals 730 gallons a year. Wow, that’s a lot of ice cream. I hope in your case, it’s the sugar free desserts type of ice cream, you know, the sugar free ice cream like my new recipe, or a low carb ice cream.
  2. 9% of all milk produced in the US is made into ice cream. Too bad that milk desserts are not considered keto desserts or Paleo desserts. It’s best to follow low carb Paleo dessert recipes if you’re craving for something sweet.
