DIRECTIONS

Did you know?

Ginger’s a great ingredient in a sugar-free sports drink like this electrolyte tonic. Ginger contains the compound gingerol, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Studies have linked it to reduced muscle pain and soreness, and while these effects might not be immediate, they do contribute to relieving those day-to-day aches and pains associated with muscle strain. Plus, if you find you have sore joints or suffer from osteoarthritis, the same anti-inflammatory benefits can provide some much-needed relief.
