CHOW DOWN

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - INSPIRE -

If your re­cent work­out has left you with sore mus­cles and some aches and pains, try eat­ing gin­ger. Re­searches at the Univer­sity of Ge­or­gia found that con­sum­ing 2g of raw or heat-treated gin­ger a day can re­duce post-work­out mus­cle sore­ness by 25 per cent. That’s be­cause gin­ger con­tains anti-in­flam­ma­tory compounds and oils that have demon­strated painkilling and seda­tive ef­fects in an­i­mal stud­ies.
