Can I consume ginger on keto?


Ginger is probably one of the best remedies for any potential issue regarding your stomach. It seems to be safe and has been used for thousands of years. On top of that, it doesn’t seem to have any side effects.

Ginger could act as a potential remedy for stomach issues such as:

  • Stomach pain

  • Bloating

  • Acid reflux

  • Gas

  • Upset stomach

  • Nausea

Ways to use ginger for your stomach:

  • Shave ginger into a salad or other foods

  • Drink ginger tea or lemon ginger tea

  • Take ginger as a supplement

Ginger stimulates the liver to release more bile. But it doesn’t increase the release of bile from the gallbladder. It just generates more bile coming down from the liver into the gallbladder.

When you get more bile into the gallbladder, it becomes more concentrated. If your bile is too weak, it’s not going to extract fat-soluble nutrients from food, or act as a lubricant through the small intestine, or help prevent bloating or nausea.

A bile deficiency can also cause sludge in the bile ducts, which can back up, creating stomach problems. There are other things you can try that may help increase the flow of bile from the liver into the gallbladder in order to reduce stomach issues.

Other natural remedies for stomach problems:

  • Betaine hydrochloride

  • Apple cider vinegar

  • Peppermint

  • Anise

  • Fennel
