Ginger Can Assist In Your Workouts

According to an article written by Samantha B. Cassetty, M.S., R.D., Nutrition Director for GHRI, if working out leaves you sore, you may want to try something new and old.  University of Georgia researchers had 74 volunteers take either a ginger supplement or a placebo for 11 days; when, on day eight, participants were subjected to a muscle-taxing workout, the ginger group ad 25 percent less pain than the sham-pill takers.  The spice, a staple of traditional medicine, functions chemically in much the same way as anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen and naproxen, the researchers believe.  But ginger could deliver even more pain relief, with potentially fewer side effects.  The reseachers' Rx: 2 grams daily.
