Arthritis and Ginger

For people with arthritis, the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger extract are of particular benefit. Ginger extract is an effective pain reliever for human muscle pain and it can also reduce the production of several chemical substances that promote joint inflammation. 

Ginger extract contains anti-inflammatory compounds that function in the same way as COX-2 inhibitors, which are drugs used to treat pain and inflammation. The anti-inflammatory properties help people relieve pain and improve joint function.
