Préparation et dosage
Ginger should be consumed 3 times daily, during or after each meal:
As a dried powder: 0.5 g to 1 g (equal to ½ to 1 teaspoon) 3 times per day (equal to total daily dose of 1.5 g to 3 g). Same dose if taken in the form of capsules.
As a fresh root: 2.5 g (equal to a 1.5 cm cube) to 5 g 3 times per day (equal to total daily dose of 7.5 g to 15 g).
Note: 1 g dry powder corresponds to 5g fresh root.
To our knowledge, there is no data indicating that it is possible to consume ginger cooked, steamed, stir-fried, or baked without losing its hypoglycaemic activity; we recommend consuming it fresh or in powder form only (if in a dish: add it at the end of the preparation).
Proven health benefits of Ginger
