Ginger Root Extract (Zingiber officinale)

Ginger is a well-known natural remedy for nausea. But itís gingerís effect on inflammation that is getting the most attention these days from researchers around the world.

Ginger root extract contains volatile oils and phenolic compounds such as gingerols and shogaols. Studies show ginger root, in sufficient amounts, targets pain and inflammation via two different pathways: prostaglandin enzymes and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX).*6,7

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), a recent study of knee pain in 261 patients with osteoarthritis found those receiving the equivalent of 3 grams of fresh ginger root daily experienced less pain and required fewer pain medications with harmful side effects. The UMMC recommends 2-4 grams daily as part of an overall program to address inflammation and arthritis pain.*8,9
