What’s In Your Spice Rack?

What’s In Your Spice Rack? A better treatment for the pain you are feeling might be in your spice rack. A long run or intense workout often sends us straight to the medicine cabinet or freezer when we return home. Advil and frozen peas are as much a part of our routine as tying our shoes and uploading our score.

Most post-workout pain or injuries we see or hear about is caused by inflammation, with muscles, joints and tissues swelling due to overuse. A better treatment for the pain you are feeling might be in your spice rack.

StrengthRunning.com recommends plenty of sleep, a diet heavy on vegetables and carbs and light on sugar, and a strong recovery process. Ignoring the warning signs can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn leads to even more pain and other health-related problems.

Healthline.com says you may have everything you need in your spice cabinet to break this cycle. Spices like turmeric, black pepper, garlic and cinnamon are effective for fighting inflammation, as are herbs like ginger, rosemary and green tea. There are also plenty of other foods that can help fight inflammation. For more tips, check out WebMd’s “Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Foods That Reduce Inflammation.”
