Your trainer might say “no pain, no gain,” but if you’ve ever gone from winter couch potato to biking 20 miles on the first warm day of spring, we know you’re feeling the burn.

Here’s a remedy for soothing those aching muscles that you might already have in your kitchen: ginger root. It's not just for calming down an upset stomach; this aromatic root can help your sore muscles, too.

Ginger, a close cousin of the turmeric plant, contains both anti-inflammatory compounds and oils, known to scientists as gingerols, which can offer tremendous healing to the body. Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have found that daily consumption of raw or heat-treated ginger helped decrease muscle pain after strenuous workouts, particularly a day or two after you exercise.
 
 
 
 

Enjoy a dose of ginger by steeping
fresh slices along with tea or in hot
water with honey and lemon. 
 
 
 
 
It also shows promise for those dealing with osteoarthritis. And ladies take note: ginger has been found to be as effective as ibuprofen for relieving menstrual cramps, according to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine.

So whether you pile on the pickled ginger on your next sushi binge or take to steeping fresh ginger root in warm water each morning with honey or lemon, know this rhizome can keep you feeling limber.

Bonus storage tip: Fresh ginger can be stored in the fridge for up to three weeks or in your freezer for up to six months. You can grate it fresh or frozen into teas, salad dressings and more.
