If you’ve ever used ginger to settle an upset stomach, then you know that it’s just as tasty as it is effective! It has been used since ancient times as both a culinary spice and a medicine. In fact, the ancient Greeks used to eat ginger wrapped in bread to treat digestive problems, but they quickly discovered that it could be mixed in with bread dough to make delicious gingerbread!

It is a natural antioxidant and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects when ingested or applied topically. Raw ginger contains a chemical compound known as gingerol, which gives it its spicy flavor. While scientists are still studying gingerol’s anti-inflammatory properties, they believe that it prevents the formation of prostaglandin and leukotriene – molecules which play an important role in regulating inflammation.

These properties make it wonderful at treating colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension. A 2013 study of sixty female athletes found that daily doses of powdered ginger reduced the muscle soreness that resulted from their training. An earlier study found that ginger extract had a statistically significant effect on reducing symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee.

Whether you’re eating it or using it to treat sport injuries, its powerful effects are undeniable! Ginger’s natural potency, great smell, and long history in medicine make it an important ingredient in KhaliliTM Dual-Activation Pain Relief Cream.
