The ginger way to stop cravings
A new study on ginger consumption suggests there could be more to the spice than just flavouring your food.
The study, carried out by Columbia University in New York, looked at the effect of ginger consumption on satiety levels and its ability to speed up the metabolism in overweight subjects.
The study tested 10 men, with each having their resting state energy expenditure measured for up to 6 hours after consumption of a breakfast meal, subjective feelings of satiety assessed hourly and blood samples were taken before and then again 3 hours after consumption.
Results showed that subjects who consumed Ginger had a significantly increased metabolism due to the high thermic effects of the root, meaning the amount of energy expended above the resting metabolic rate due to the process of turning food in to energy or for storage.
What’s more the same subjects showed lower hunger levels, had a lower prospective food intake and commented on a greater fullness when compared to the controls.
So if you are looking for a new and effective way to speed up your metabolism, help you lose weight and make sure you stay topped up for longer finding a way to add some ginger to your diet could just be the answer.
