Ginger Can Reduce Post-Exercise Pain & Inflammation

A recent study in The Journal of Pain shows that both raw ginger and heat-treated ginger reduce muscle pain after exercise by approximately 25%, respectively.  Researchers state that the study suggests “ginger may have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties akin to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.” The rhizome of the ginger plant is a potent source of antioxidants, including gingerols, shogaols, zingerones and other ketone derivatives; these are likely the aspects of the plant responsible for reducing pain and inflammation.

Ginger is also a great addition to juices formulated for eye health. Please visit our website for information on juicing with ginger.
