Key Ingredient: Ginger Root

We compiled three scientifically-backed benefits of ginger root for reducing inflammation and promoting joint health:



1. Reduces Inflammation


Ginger contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds such as gingerols, shogaols, and paradols.

These compounds help inhibit inflammatory pathways and reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which are responsible for inflammation and pain in conditions like arthritis. 

A study published in the journal Molecules highlights ginger’s effectiveness in reducing symptoms of various inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.

2. Alleviates Pain


Ginger has been shown to provide pain relief comparable to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) but without the side effects. It achieves this by inhibiting the COX-2 enzyme, which plays a significant role in the inflammation process.

This makes ginger an excellent natural alternative for managing joint pain. Learn more about this benefit from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus study.



3. Promotes Overall Joint Health


Ginger not only reduces inflammation and pain but also supports overall joint health by improving circulation and providing essential antioxidants.

These benefits help maintain the integrity of your joints, making them more resilient to wear and tear.

A comprehensive review in ScienceDirect discusses how ginger’s bioactive compounds contribute to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
