Increase Your Daily Intake of Ginger and Keep Pain Away

Ingesting raw or heat-treated ginger daily may help relive muscle pain after strenuous exercise, according to results of a study published in The Journal of Pain.

Prior research has demonstrated that ginger may have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The remedy has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries.

The new study, performed by researchers from the University of Georgia and Georgia College and State University, focused on examining the efficacy of multiple das of ginger doses for relieving experimentally induced muscle pain from 18 eccentric muscle exercises.

Student volunteers were tested on 11 consecutive days while taking ginger supplements. The study included 74 students that were placed in three groups: one given raw ginger, one given heated ginger, or one given placebo.

The results demonstrated that both raw and heat-treated ginger lowered muscle pain intensity by 25% and 23%.
