In rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis ginger is used as a natural pain reliever and an anti-inflammatory agent.
Ginger contain potent inhibitors against prostaglandin biosynthesizing enzyme (PG synthetase).
Prostaglandins are lipid autacoids derived from arachidonic acid and act upon platelets, endothelium, uterine and mast cells. They both sustain homeostatic functions and mediate pathogenic mechanisms, including the inflammatory response.
Prostaglandins play a key role in the generation of the inflammatory response. Their biosynthesis is significantly increased in inflamed tissue and they contribute to the development of the cardinal signs of acute inflammation. Prostaglandins can cause increased blood flow, chemotaxis (chemical signals that summon white blood cells), dysfunction of tissues and organs and swelling.
