About

Dry ginger facilitates weight loss by improving digestion, which helps in burning stored fat and processing glucose in the blood. It also speeds up metabolism and controls fat absorption, thanks to its thermogenic properties. Another benefit of dry ginger is its ability to curb hunger and overeating.

Dry ginger also relieves pain and discomfort in the stomach caused by chronic indigestion. A delay in the emptying of the stomach is said to cause indigestion, and ginger has been shown to alleviate this problem. A study of 24 healthy subjects showed that consuming one to two grams of dry ginger powder before a meal speeded up the emptying of the stomach by 50 per cent.
