Ginger Eases Muscle Pain

Ginger root, long used as a folk remedy, can reduce muscle pain caused by exercise.

Ginger had already been shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects in rodents, but a recent study looked at its effect on experimentally-induced human muscle pain.

Live Science reports:

“The studies showed that daily ginger supplementation reduced the exercise-induced pain by 25 percent, and the effect was not enhanced by heat-treating the ginger. The study involved a small number of individuals, however, and further study would be needed to confirm the results.”
