Conditions such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease has been linked to obesity and insulin resistance. In fact, this chronic liver disease is the most common one in the world. One 2011 study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology found that, thanks to its antioxidant content, ginger could effectively prevent and even treat fatty liver disease and reduce the liver’s oxidative stress.
Another 2016 study published in Hepatitis Monthly analyzed the effects of ginger supplementation on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. In it, they found that ginger was very helpful in managing the chronic condition. Over the 12-week study, ginger proved to help “[reduce] alanine aminotransferase, γ-glutamyl transferase, inflammatory cytokines, as well as the insulin resistance index and hepatic steatosis grade in comparison to the placebo.”
