Ginger cuts pain.

Prof Christopher D Black found that daily ginger cut perceived pain in human volunteers undertaking exercise.

The volunteers took 2g of raw ginger, or 2g of cooked ginger, or a placebo for 8 days, then undertook controlled exercises designed to induce pain.

24 hours after the exercise, those on ginger reported 25% less pain than those on a placebo. Raw or cooked made no significant difference.

According to the team, these findings add to others demonstrating ginger’s use as a pain reliever and its pain reduction effects in osteoarthritis.
