The Anti-Inflammatory Effects Can Help With Osteoarthritis



Osteoarthritis is a common health problem.

It involves degeneration of the joints in the body, leading to symptoms like joint pain and stiffness.

In a controlled trial of 247 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract had less pain and required less pain medication (Altman & Marcussen, 2001).



Another study found that a combination of ginger, mastic, cinnamon and sesame oil, can reduce pain and stiffness in osteoarthritis patients when applied topically (Zahmatkash & Vafaeenasab, 2011).




BOTTOM LINE:There are some studies showing ginger to be effective at reducing symptoms of osteoarthritis, which is a very common health problem.
