How does Active Root ginger make you feel better during exercise?
Ginger contains a compound called gingerol which is a relative of the compounds found in chilli peppers and tumeric. Gingerol helps sooth the stomach by relaxing the muscles in the gut so that stomach contents are released into the small intestine. It also has a calming effect, so it helps get rid of excess gas and as a result reduces bloating and stomach discomfort. The ginger that Active Root uses has been specially selected because of its high gingerol ratio.
Active Root ginger contains 204mg of gingerol, the equivalent of 4g of ginger. That’s well above the threshold daily amount proven to prevent nausea (1.1-1.5grams according to research done by the US National Institute of Health).
Why does this help me perform better?
Active Root helps settle the stomach and prevent bloating. Studies have shown that up to 90% of athletes experience some form of gastric discomfort during exercise, whether it’s pre-race nerves before, feeling sick during the event or bloating afterwards. (De Oliveira & Jeukendrup, 2013).
