Ginger reduces exercise-induced muscle strain

Ginger reduces exercise-induced muscle strain

Step away from the aspirin, ibruprofen and naproxen sodium the next time you spend too much time at the gym and nosh on some ginger pear sauce or drink some ginger ale or candied ginger instead.

A study published in The Journal of Pain, found “that daily consumption of raw and heat-treated ginger resulted in moderate-to-large reductions in muscle pain following exercise-induced muscle injury. Our findings agree with those showing hypoalgesic effects of ginger in osteoarthritis patients and further demonstrate ginger’s effectiveness as a pain reliever.”

Ginger’s efficacy in pain relief isn’t damaged by heat so you can either eat it raw or warm and take advantage of its analgesic effects.

  1. Interesting…I definitely want to try this now! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Cool! I love this kind of information. Spices are so full benefits, I have the impression there is still much, much more to discover about them!

  3. Our ancestors knew the medicinal value of all the herbs they put into their regular foods and we have lost sight of them. We only care about flavors and forget that food has always been medicine. Now we're trying to regain that wisdom.

  4. Great info…Not that I needed mush of a shove with ginger:)
