Inkiväärin nauttiminen ehkäisi tutkimuksissa lihaskipuja noin 25%:
Daily ginger may decrease exercise pains by 25%. "The studies showed that daily ginger supplementation reduced the exercise-induced pain by 25 percent, and the effect was not enhanced by heat-treating the ginger."
Äidilläni nivelten ja selän kolotukset katosivat kuin seinään pelkällä inkivääriteen juomisella.
EDIT: Kiinnostavaa on sekin, että kofeiinilisä vähensi treenaavien lihaskipuja 48%:
Maridakis and his colleagues studied nine female college students who were not regular caffeine users and did not engage in regular resistance training. One and two days after an exercise session that caused moderate muscle soreness, the volunteers took either caffeine or a placebo and performed two different quadriceps (thigh) exercises, one designed to produce a maximal force, the other designed to generate a sub-maximal force. Those that consumed caffeine one-hour before the maximum force test had a 48 percent reduction in pain compared to the placebo group, while those that took caffeine before the sub-maximal test reported a 26 percent reduction in pain.
- - caffeine appears to be more effective in relieving post-workout muscle pain than several commonly used drugs. Previous studies have found that the pain reliever naproxen (the active ingredient in Aleve) produced a 30 percent reduction in soreness. Aspirin produced a 25 percent reduction, and ibuprofen has produced inconsistent results.
“A lot of times what people use for muscle pain is aspirin or ibuprofen, but caffeine seems to work better than those drugs, at least among women whose daily caffeine consumption is low,” O’Connor said.
Eli kofeiini on "apteekkilääkkeistä" omassa luokassaan (ainakin vähän nauttivilla) ja inkivääri aspiriinin luokassa ?
