Ginger & Recovery <> El Jengibre y la recuperación

March 15, 2011

The pain in my legs after cycling reminded me of this interesting article on the webmd website.  A study on how ginger may also be an effective pain reliever for sore muscles.

The essence of this article is this:

“A daily dose of ginger eased muscle pain caused by exercise-induced muscle injury.  In two separate experiments, researchers looked at the effects of two grams of raw or heat-treated ginger in supplement form on muscle pain caused by exercise in 74 healthy adults.  The participants performed a variety of exercises designed to induce muscle pain over a period of 11 days while taking ginger supplements or a dummy pill.”

The conclusion of this study was this:

“Daily consumption of raw or heat-treated ginger resulted in moderate-to-large reductions in muscle pain following exercise-induced muscle injury.”

Ginger is a key ingredient in the Innorbit Infusions: Up&Go, Slim&Fit, Calm&Relax
