The main active ingredients in turmeric are the curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Turmeric is also rich in antioxidants that protect against damaging free radicals in the body. The mechanism by which curcumin reduces inflammation may be due to its ability to inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) activity, leading to a decrease in the synthesis of inflammation-producing prostaglandins. Turmeric is recommended for relieving the acute pain and inflammation seen in conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis. Ginger's properties, on the other hand, make it beneficial for controlling the chronic pain and inflammation of these conditions. The main active ingredients in ginger are the phenolic compounds such as gingerols and shogaols, which also give this herb its spicy flavour. These compounds exert an anti-inflammatory effect by partially inhibiting two important enzymes that play a role in inflammation: cyclooxygenase (COX) and 5-lipoxygenase (LOX).
