Got pain? Try ginger.
Two studies directed by kinesiology Professor Patrick O’Connor give scientific support to the ancient remedy of using ginger to treat pain. Studies show that two grams of ginger taken daily reduce exercise-induced muscle pain by 25 percent over the course of 11 days. O’Connor’s study will be published in the September issue of The Journal of Pain, which can be found online at http://www.jpain.org/home.
