Arm up your workout… With ginger. That’s right, a study published in the Journal of Exercise Science & Fitness showed that this stir-fry staple can cut an average of 4.1kg of body fat over 10 weeks when combined with strength training.
This is basically the best news ever, because it’s so easy: just one teaspoon a day is all you need to see results. Pair the powder with protein – further studies show combining the two doubles the speed at which ginger reaches your muscles. Boom!
