Ginger is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, and for a good reason: this is a wonder spice that has numerous health benefits, from improved digestion to anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger boosts your body’s natural capacity to absorb nutrients, it helps you treat common colds as well as stomach cramps. Moreover, it is great for cleansing sinuses (therefore ginger is a good natural treatment if you suffer from recurrent infections of the sinuses), and it is also great if you suffer from motion sickness. Also, as mentioned above, ginger has great anti-inflammatory properties which make it a reliable ally against joint pain: all you have to do is to pour several drops of ginger essential oil in your hot bath, and then enjoy it for half an hour. If you suffer from common respiratory problems or you are just tired of using NSAIDs to soothe the pain, then you should know that ginger can be a great ally.
NSAIDS have antipyretic activity and can be used to treat fever.   Fever is caused by elevated levels of prostaglandin E2 , which alters the firing rate of neurons within the hypothalamus that control thermoregulation.   Antipyretics work by inhibiting the enzyme COX, which causes the general inhibition of prostanoid biosynthesis ( PGE2 ) within the hypothalamus .   PGE2 signals to the hypothalamus to increase the body's thermal set point.   Ibuprofen has been shown more effective as an antipyretic than paracetamol (acetaminophen).   Arachidonic acid is the precursor substrate for cyclooxygenase leading to the production of prostaglandins F, D & E.
Peppers are an anti-inflammatory superfood—but go red to reap the most benefits. Out of the three colors of bell pepper, red have the highest amount of inflammatory-biomarker-reducing vitamin C along with the bioflavonoids beta-carotene, quercetin, and luteolin, according to research in the Journal of Food Science . Luteolin has been found to neutralize free radicals and reduce inflammation. Beta-carotene is a carotenoid, fat-soluble compounds that are associated with a reduction in a wide range of cancers, as well as reduced risk and severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. And allergy research has shown that quercetin acts as a mast-cell stabilizer, which decreases the number of cells reacting to an allergen. Mast cells are responsible for releasing histamine during inflammatory and allergic reactions.
