Ginger & Recovery <> El Jengibre y la recuperación
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.”
