I love finding out about the latest research on spices – and ginger is quite amazing. The more I find out about it, the more I want to include it in my Paleo desserts recipes (keto desserts), which are always sugar free desserts made with healthy sweeteners like xylitol.
And I notice a difference. Any area of my body that may be inflamed – maybe because I worked it out too hard at the gym or moved it in a weird way – will seem better when I consume ginger. In fact, often my wife will make a cup of ginger tea for me and have it waiting when I come home from work.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, ginger has been used to help digestion for more than 2000 years. It’s been used for colic, diarrhea, and even heart conditions. Women may know that ginger can make the pain of a menstrual period a lot less and may depend on it for feeling better during that time of the month.
Pregnant women who have severe vomiting can even benefit from ginger, reports the U of Maryland doctors. The women who consumed 1gram ginger daily for four days straight had a lot more vomiting relief than those who were stuck taking the placebo. In another study, the women who took the ginger had less nausea and did not vomit at all compared to those who got the placebo.
Ginger also works for those who are on chemotherapy and have nausea and vomiting. Hmmm . . . so ginger cookies could conceivably help quite a few different types of people. Isn’t that exciting?
Want a cookie that will go with sugar free ice cream (low carb ice cream)? This one fits the bill! It also goes well with keto desserts and Paleo desserts. Try all the sugar free desserts on this website!
