Ginger: Not Just for Stomach Aches
Ginger contains ultra-potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols, which are the substances that many scientists believe are responsible for the reduction in inflammation people experience when they start taking ginger supplements regularly.

Case in point: a recent study involving patients who tried conventional drugs to alleviate painful symptoms found that 100% of patients with muscular discomfort experienced relief of pain or swelling when they consumed ginger on a daily basis.

Dr. Mike explains all the benefits of ginger, as well as how you can easily incorporate it into your daily regimen.
