Abstract

Effect of Ginger (Zingiber officinale) Supplementation on Diabetes: An Update

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a metabolic syndrome with multifactorial etiology that has a considerable impact on health and its costs, especially in developing countries. It is postulated that oxidative stress plays an important role in the secondary complications of diabetes. Antioxidant supplements from the diet are considered alternatives for the treatment of DM, with ginger (Zingiber officinale) being one of them. Its therapeutic effects have action on insulin sensitivity and protect the body from complications caused by diabetes. However, few articles synthesize the beneficial effects of administration of Z. officinale on diabetes. For this purpose, a bibliographic research was carried out on the scientific production of the antidiabetic effect of ginger supplementation. The results show that ginger has hypoglycemic potential and reduce diabetic complications and should, therefore, be considered in the treatment of this disease.
