Ginger and Muscle Pain

For those of you doing higher intensity training (which should be all of you), you may wish to start adding more fresh ginger into your diet. Not only does it taste good, but it also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties.

A recent study at the University of Georgia found that daily consumption of ginger (both fresh and heat treated) reduced exercise-related muscle pain by 25%.

So feel free to step up your ginger consumption – just be careful with the ginger ale.
