Ginger a common spice in India kitchens can manage high levels of blood sugar which create complications for long-term diabetic patients, a new study has claimed.

Research from the University of Sydney found that ginger has the power to control blood glucose by using muscle cells.

"Ginger extracts obtained from Buderim Ginger were able to increase the uptake of glucose into muscle cells independently of insulin," Professor of pharmaceutical chemistry Basil Roufogalis who led the research said in a statement.
