Default Ginger Root

FLEX had an article in the November issue about Ginger Root decreasing inflammation and soreness post workout. Anyone ever try it?

I missed it. I know of another great one. Tumeric. Everyone should be taking it. Look it up.

Knew Tumeric had many positive benefits, wasn't aware that was one. Thanks for the heads up.

Its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful in treating pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, and it is effective in treating muscle pain as well.

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

Thanks for the info Steve. BTW, love your Babes pics! ;-)

Tumeric, orange juice and garlic powder make a great marinade for meats. The plus is that it also counteracts the supposed "cancer causing" reaction to cooking meats at temps above 375 degrees.

YW. Hope it was somewhat helpful.

And the babes, well...I'm old and need all the natural testosterone I can get.

I've never had tea. It's just not something popular in my culture. How would you make ginger tea?
