Did you know that ginger is one of the most used dietary supplements in the world today? The benefits of ginger are pretty impressive that it was a no-brainer to include it in our product line. We use ginger root in our daily green juice, SPRUCE to enhance the flavor and for many other reasons but here are three reasons how ginger root extract is especially helpful to those that live a boosted life.
Relieves Joint and Muscle Pain
Studies have shown that daily consumption of ginger root resulted in moderate-to-large reductions in muscle soreness from exercise. Ginger isn’t a supplement where the benefits are seen immediate, at least when it comes to relieving joint and muscle pain. When taken on a regular basis, ginger can help reduce joint and muscle pain.
Improves Brain Function
Ginger Root contains a wealth of antioxidants and potent anti-inflammatory properties due to it containing gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. Because of its beneficial power, it is believed to play an important role in the health of your brain. Additionally, a study from 2012 found that ginger extract helped improve cognitive function and attention in middle-aged women.
Although inflammation is something completely normal within the body, especially if you are someone that exercises regularly, having a healthy immune response to injury, infection, and chronic inflammation is believed to be a major contributor to conditions like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Ginger extract is noted by the Internation Journal of Medicine to help inhibit the synthesis of certain markers of inflammation within the body.
