Ginger contains a compound called gingerol which is a relative of the compounds that chilli peppers and tumeric contain. When consumed, gingerol helps sooth the stomach by relaxing the muscles in the gut and therefore releasing stomach contents into the small intestine. It also has a calmative effect, helping the expulsion of excess gas and thereby reducing bloating and stomach discomfort. The ginger that Active Root uses has been specially selected due to its high gingerol ratio. Active Root ginger contains 204mg of gingerol, the equivalent of 4g of ginger, well over the threshold daily amount proven to prevent nausea (1.1-1.5grams according to research done by the U.S. National Institute of Health).
Simply, Active Root helps settle the stomach and alleviate bloating- no one wants to feel sick when exercising! 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 or post race bloating.
