3 Reduces Inflammation and Pain

Ginger is widely known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger contains gingerol, a phenolic compound that gives the root its pungent taste. As a result, it has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Studies show that ginger’s active agents are as effective as popular analgesics.

Ginger is a must-have if you suffer from severe menstrual cramps. Other health benefits of eating ginger is relieving migraine headaches, muscle pain, and back and joint pain. Drinking tea with a small slice of ginger root is an easy way to alleviate headaches and sleep well. When I want to cope with sore muscles after suitable training, I add a couple of drops of ginger oil to the water and soak it in the bath for 20 minutes.
