  • Put some spice in your pain relief by adding ginger to your supplement regimen. According to a study in the Journal of Pain, college students performed 18 eccentric muscle exercises over 11 days. Some ingested ginger; others took a placebo. Those who got ginger had a 25% reduction in post-exercise pain intensity. Researchers believe ginger may possess anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties akin to Advil and Tylenol.

    In the study, both raw and heated ginger were effective. Try 500 mg of extract.
